Allsorts week 342/343 Anything but Christmas

Challenge time at Allsorts once again.
This theme has been chosen by Brenda and is 'Anything but Christmas'
Unlike all our other challenges this theme will run for two weeks due to the Christmas period.
Even us crafty girls like a little time off occasionally.
Sponsors for this two week challenge are Whimsy, Stamp Addicts, Digi stamp boutique and DeeDees.
My card has been created using a digi stamp from Digi Darla who is no longer designing coloured using Promarkers. Papers used are from Do crafts.
And as it's a two week challenge we have four lovely sponsors...................

DigiStamp Boutique offers a wide range of digi images designed by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.

Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

Deedee's Digis, sadly Deedee's is closing it's doors at the end of this month so we would like to thank them for their support of Allsorts and wish Deedee well in the future. Deedee has made available a fabulous collection of images for one lucky winner.

Whimsy Stamps are a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. All of our rubber stamps are made from deeply etched rubber, mounted on Cling Cushion Foam and once trimmed are ready to use with an acrylic block. Our Shapeology Metal Craftings dies are exclusive to Whimsy Stamps and can be used with many table top cutting machines. These dies are made in the USA using top quality steel. They are perfect for cutting papers and fabrics and many coordinate with our sentiment stamps. We also have our own line of 6x6 designer papers printed on high quality, slightly textured vellum paper.

Holiday Hair Gabbie

Good morning everyone.
Thought I would share with you all an easel card I have made for the FaeryInk Red, Green and gold challenge.
I have used Holiday Hair Gabbie.
I love this digi.
I have coloured her using Promarkers...
Skin-Coral, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink, Satin, Ivory
Hair-Henna, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Sandstone
Bows/Ornaments-Gold, Canary, Buttercup, Cardinal Red, Poppy, Red, Holly, Forest Green, Lime Green
Lips/eyes-Cardinal Red, Red, Prussian Blue, Blue Pearl, Pastel Blue, Holly and Forest Green.
Green glitter rope wrapped around berry twigs and around the main image add extra sparkle that twinkles in candle light as do the little gems.
Aren't they just fab ?
The ribbon was originally white and as I have run out of red I coloured it using the Poppy Promarker.
Hand tied and twirled then added using a glue gun.
More berry twigs, poinsettia and gems added to act as the stopper.
The berrys, twigs and gems are from the huge flower bundle stash the hubster got for me.
I have decided to keep this one for myself and she will be sitting on my mantel piece in between the candles and tinsel.
Thank you for visiting and looking today :)
I am entering this into.....
