Christmas Wishes xxx

Well this is my last post for Christmas I'm sorry for the lack of posting and commenting as I'm just so busy with work and getting prepared for the big day!!!

Hopefully I will be back to normal soon (did I say normal well that will be a first) lol

Here is a Christmas card I have done for my Sister-in-Law it really is very beautiful and the image sits so elegantly. I am also entering this into the "The Sweetpea Stampers" Challenge Anything Goes.

The image is Northern Most Serenity and can be found at the Crafty Purple Frog.

Used a sheet of Miri cad and this and it looks fab with the light!

Couldn't find flowers to match so I sprayed these with glimmer mist and now they are perfect. Punched some leaves and added a few pins.

Thats it then just going to get ready for work!!

Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and get lots of crafty goodies!!

Lots of Love

Just managed it!!!

When I saw the theme for the Crafts & Me Challenge I thought I'd give it a go but as always life got in the way and I ended up doing it late last night!!!! by the time I had finished my card I had a really bad headache and had to go to bed!!!!

I got up this morning and I am now just in the deadline to enter!!!!

The theme is "Moody Blues".

This is my entry the image is from Amy at the Crafty Purple Frog and she is called Hope as always she comes on a sheet of two and can be found here!

I have used plain blue papers and a blue spotty one from Dovecrafts "Let it Snow".

Added the essential stickles for the extra sparkle some ribbon, snowflakes and a tiny bit of blue bling.

Hope you like it she looks fabulous in the flesh!!

Managed to enter with 7 minutes to go!!!!! lol

Inked round the edges of the card with Tim's distressed inks which match these Noel papers just beautifully.

Great afternoon crafting with Kerry!!

Had a fabulous afternoon with Kerry see her blog here!!

We got that much stuff out was shattered before we started but we had a great time!!! Missed our craft class this week with the weather so this was the next best thing!! As you will see from the photo's we had eveything to hand and if not it wasn't far away!!

Kerry was a wizz but I'm a lot slower here is one of my cards, it's for Summer obviously and is a Peachy Keen image of Mother Gingerbread I actually purchased her last year but this is the first time she has been inked.

The ribbon was a purchase from the NEC, the papers are bazzil in green and holly paper is from Festive Frolics from Papermania 6 x 6 and the snowflake is the same range but in 12 x 12 all available from the Craft Den, then just added loads of stickles.

She looks beautiful coloured with my copics with an added bit of stickles.
