another christmas card all made lol

I adore this image, and was very lucky to get hold of the stamp a while ago second hand :)

I used some gorgeous Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas papers, this one is Vintage, just beautiful colours.  I did my usual with Tim Holtz lol and coloured in my image using copic markers, finished off with lots of gorgeous stickles, a lovely intricate metal photo corner, and this luscious red satin ribbon, and dotty button again by Dovecraft! :)

I am going to enter this into a challenge!!!! wahoo, its Tilda's Town - Merry Christmas challenge.
Hope you like x

Wintering Sunday ....

Hi everyone

Well its 6.10pm on this wintery Sunday.  I am counting the days till my operation, so I get out of this pain every month, wahoo, can't wait.

A few weeks ago, I made this cute card, using the beautiful Fur Cones LOTV stamp, I do love this, I know I keep saying it but I do!!! lol

I used some kraft card for the background, cut out some kraft snowflakes and then stickled them.  I used the gorgeous Spellbinder Poinsettia dies and then used some Tim Holtz distress inks to make them a little more rustique!!!

Birthday Girl

Well, another year, and my eldest is now the grand old age of 15 years.  She is now 5ft 11 inches and towers over me now!!! lol  Lets just see its a challenge getting her shoes and jeans that fit her these days bless.

I am glad that all my side of her family remembered her birthday and sent her something to celebrate, shame that only one person on the other side could be bothered, but the person that did, it was so appreciated by Bethany she was chuffed to nuts.

I made Beth a very special card, like I do every year, for all my girls.  This year, Beth has been following a very funny chap on youtube, who puts on some very funny videos every week, and is gaining himself quite a following, including my daughter lol.  Now Beth has always liked Llamas, and this chap does as well it would seem.  I will show you the card and you can judge for yourself lol

This chap is called danisnotonfire and Beth thinks he is the bees knees lol, she also has this Llama hat that I had to buy from abroad especially for her birthday, I thought she was gonna bust when she opened it up, so was so happy.  She also got the Friends DVD 15th Anniversary Collection, she is a massive Friends fan, lol which means I can now delete all the episodes she tapes on my sky box!!!! mwaaha ha ha one of her pressies still hasn't turned up, so still crossing fingers on that one.

have a great evening :)

Tis Christmasssssssss .....

well, nearly lol.

I have made this pretty card using Lili of the Valley's Fur Cones cute christmas kitten stamp.  It is soooo cute, and very therapeutic to colour I might add.

I made using a lovely christmas designer pad called Winterland by Fancypants, beautiful muted colours, so pretty.

I made one of my poinsettias, again very therapeutic to make and added some beautiful red satin ribbon.  Lots of stickles glitter glue all over the branches for the snow and hey presto its finished :)

Hope you like, would be lovely to hear from any of you :)
