Santa Edwin and his little helper! Allsorts DT Wk 129 Black/White plus One

Morning sweet blogging friends,
Hope you are all ready for another
 challenge. I's my turn to host this week and I hope you enjoy playing along with the theme I've thought of which is
Black and White plus one other colour.
 My mission is to make as many Christmas projects as I can for the next few DT challenges that I have to get done, killing two birds with one stone! No matter who's turn it is to host the challenge I always give 110% but thought I was going to let myself down this week. However, I eventually pulled myself together and managed to create this double shutter Christmas card, I must apologise now for the number of pics but one photo doesn't do a card this size justice, so make yourself comfy with a cuppa!

The card, when closed, fits TOMIC's challenge this week of Edwin plus sketch. 
Hope you can see the snowflake charm hanging from a button! 

The card fully opened out:

Close up of Jolly Tilda on a pile of presents, the torn paper around her is supposed to be a snowdrift but you may have to stretch the imagination for that one!

A couple of tags on the back for a message:

Magnolia paper - Sweet Christmas Dreams/Sweet Flurry Blue
Magnolia Doo Hickey's - Antique lace/tag, heart swirl branch
Nestie's - lacey circle and labels two
Magnolia stamps - Jolly Tilda, Santa Edwin and Wishful armchair coloured with TH DI's
Sentiment and snowflake stamps from the girl's paperie 'tinsel and twig' clear stamp set (free when I took part in Sir Stampalot's Freebie Friday!)

TOMIC - Edwin plus sketch
Magnolia-licious highlights - Photo inspiration (winter scene)

Allsorts are sponsored this week by:

Full details of challenge and prize can be found on the Allsorts blog, if you have time visit my teamies blogs as they have made some awesome inspiration as always!

Many thanks for taking a look at my creation today, hope to pop by your blogs this week.
Enjoy your weekend and have fun

 Anything but a Square.

 With so many shaped dies and all you fabulous crafty designers out there, this should be easy peasy! I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had with this one!

The back of the basket:
Tied the doo hickey tags on with lace

Be Thankful/Feature a Sentiment - Fussy & Fancy DT No.49

Hi there,
The week's are flying by, aren't they? I can barely keep track, these fortnightly challenges for
Fussy and Fancy
 seem to be rushing past so fast! I can't believe we are onto yet another challenge which this time is
Be Thankful/Feature a Sentiment.
 I have to admit, I really didn't know where I was going to go with this one, but I did the image a while back and didn't want it to go to waste so that was my starting point and it just flowed from there!

I used SU Linen thread for the kite's string, paper pieced Tilda's jeans and masked Tilda with the rainbow background.

Go Kreate shaped card die
Nesties Lacey circles
Magnolia Dp's, Doo Hickey Heart Swirl Branch, Sweet Rainbow Tilda with Kite and Magnolia rainbow background stamp
SU sentiment, stitch stamp and linen thread

Fussy and Fancy are sponsored this time by

Thanks for stopping by and will be back again in the morning with my latest Allsorts creation
