VLV August & CCC12

I have been colouring images in spare moments with watercolour pencils, distress markers and peerless colours.  I decided it was about time I turned some into cards so here are this month's VLV challenges with an alternative version for Week 1 too as I tried turning that sketch around.  All the cards use Penny Black images and the week 4 includes 2 images so I am entering it for this month's Penny Black challenge.  As you can see all 5 are Christmas cards - the first 5 of my CCC12 for August.  Last but not least I am entering into the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge from Sunday to use dies and punches - every single card fits that bill!

  1. hi janine...lots of gorgeous Penny Black cards...thanks for joining in the fun this month over at Penny Black Saturday...hugs kath xxx

  2. Oh my! They are all so cute but that kitty on the Christmas tree has me chuckling!!! Our middle cat age 5 does that!!! Grrrr! I just had a horrible thought!!! Our new little Storm has never seen a Christmas tree!!! She climbs EVERY high place in our house.....Our Christmas tree is going to be a disaster!!! Maybe I should go out and buy all plastic ornaments!!!!

    1. Angie, we found if we hung the bottom layers with ornaments they could play with, they were distracted enough to leave the rest of the tree alone. Make them easy for them to be removed by them so they can bat them around... it gets them away from the tree.

  3. Beautiful cards. Love them all! Thank you for joining us at SSiC!

  4. Great cards, Janine. Love PB images. Good luck on the challenges!
