holiday cheer

Hi everyone! christmas time again!! I have a birthday card and a naming ceremony card to make for a little boy next week-I think I might have to cheat for the naming ceremony unless anyone has any ideas they can give me please?!!!

I made this card using a Sizzix set I got from their wondeful sale a couple of weeks ago.
It is a christmas one with stamps and matching dies.
The snowflake stamp is one I have in my stash and I have used some irridescent embossing powder on. It just about shows up! I have added glitter for the snow.

I stamped and paperpieced the reindeer and coloured him with pro markers, and then fussy cut him out. The embossing powder used for the sentiment is a wow one in regular green. The inks are dew drops.

Hope you like it, and thank you for looking!

I am entering it in the follwing challenges:

ABC christmas challenge-Q for quick
crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge-inky or painty
less is more-use a rubber stamp

racing christmas

Hi everybody!
This is my latest christmas card. I have used the sketch from sketch n stash #119

I have rotated it and used a stamp I got off ebay-no idea who made it but I wanted something for little boys cards. I liked it that much i decided to christmas it up! The bird is from a freebie set and the die cut tree is a memory box one, as are the snowflakes.
I've coloured him with pro markers and spectrum noirs. I have just started using spectrum noirs and am enjoying them!

The papers are all freebie ones from various magazines. i added 2 candis to each side.

Hope you like it and that it's christmasy!

blue squares

Hi all!!
It's the weekend at last and tomrrow is my favourite saturday of the month-craft day!!
I have made this card for one of Austins little friends who is 2 next month! I found the stamp on ebay and absolutely love it! I have even truned it into a Christmas card which I will blog at a later date (when I have finished it!)
I have based the card on the challenge at here come the boys challenge 58 which is just squares.
I scored my card to make squares on teh background and used a checked piece of paper (freebie from a magazine).
The image has been coloured using promarkers and the brads are from my stash.

Thanks for looking and any comments

bears and sledge

This is a quick post as Austin is crazy today and I haven't much time!
We've had a hard two weeks with happy and sad times.
We hadmy beloved cat Morris put to sleep due to kidney disease. I am really missing him as he has been there for 14 years and saw me through a lot of house moves, divorce, illness and operations. But life goes on-and it did with austins second birthday at the beginning of this week. He is growing up so quick but I love spending time with him as he's so sweet and funny!
Anyway this is my card for the winter wonderland cute christmas  challenge.
My stamp is a Lili of the valley one taht I won a while back. I loved colouring it-even though my colouring needs practice!
The ribbon is create and craft embossed ribbon and I inked the background using Memento London Fog and a stamp of a snowflake. the yellow paper is my minds eye.
thanks for looking and any comments you make! Have a fab day x
I am enetering this in the wintyer wonderland challenge
