Spectrum Noir November challenge & some news

Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a lovely weekend ?? 
For those that aren't on my FB I had a fall last week and ended up crashing through a cabinet and damaging my hand, which now means no colouring for 6-8 weeks whilst it heals :( I can still craft but colouring is one thing i cannot do left handed !! Which sadly means I have had to stand down from Treasured Times rubber Stamps DT, as my DT role requires me to colour and i am going to be out of colouring action for a while I didn't think it was right to Jody and the rest of the team to stay on the team, I would like to say a huge thank you to Jody for being so understanding and to the rest of the team for being so lovely xxx
  I shall be glad when this year is over !! 

Anyway onto todays card :) 

This months Spectrum Noir Challenge  is Christmas/Winter and you could win £30/$30 of Spectrum Noir Products ...who wouldn't want to win ? 
I have used one of the lovely Sheena's stamps for my card and stamped it onto Neenah Desert Storm card....luckily i did this card before the fall because i have been dying to colour this stamp up. 
I have used one of the fab Die'sire Ticket dies from the Essentials range to cut out the sentiment, I then distressed the edges, added some distress ink and frantage. It is such a lovely image i didn't want to do too much too the card to take away from it. 
I hope you like it :) 
you can enter the challenge here and i cannot wait to see your entry. 
Happy crafting

  6. Love the card and colours you have used Tracy, fab colouring . sorry if I miss any cards I am spending more and more hours each day, up to 8 some days with my dying dad. I am having a bit of a break until later this afternoon, need time out.xxx aNNie The Journey is the Start

  7. This is absolutely gorgeous, coloured to perfection and makes me feel all cosy and warm just looking at it!
    You are spot on with not too much embellishment as well - love that twine bow and button :-)

    I'm so sorry you won't be able to do any more colouring for a while now and hope you find other crafty things to amuse you instead.

    Big hugs, Kat xx
