Oh Christmas Tree

Good Morning my crafty friends,

Still making Christmas cards to send out. A bit late but have been so busy with orders I'm behind with my own. I have been having a little play with a Woodware stamp purchased at the craft fair at the NEC. I heat embossed the stamp  with a platinum WOW powder. Then cosmic shimmer clear glue was used to apply glamour dust to the different size circles. 

The panel was then added to a square silver mirri mat with a further panel being added to which a ribbon and bow was added. I think, although this card is quite simple it is stylish.

Have a good evening!

Snow is falling

Good Morning crafty buddies,
A cold one here in Northampton, but good news, there's no snow here!

I thought I would share a card with you this morning that I made for an order that was picked up last night. Thankfully it was a hit :)
It's been a long while since I made a card this shape but I was quite pleased with how it turned out

I have used the Do crafts  - Woodland Friends CD again to print off the image and papers. There are some really sweet images on this CD for all occasions. I cut out the image then added glossy accents to the berries and glitter to the mouses hat, this was then added to the card with foam pads. The sentiment was computer generated and mounted onto silver mirri. To finish off, a couple of glittered snowflakes were added to embellish.

Have a good weekend.

Friday Sketch Challenge #84

Good Morning,

I am here today to share a card I made using the new sketch over at 

I have used an All Dressed Up image  called Happy Birthday that was free on their FB page isn't she a sweetie!
The image was coloured with markers and chalks with a touch of glitter added in several places.

        The floral paper was a freebie also, in a                                                  magazine ages ago. I do so like a freebie  
I'm sure you do too! 
A cuttlebug folder called swiss dots created the embossed paper.

Hop on over to see the sketch and some super ideas from the DT

My Sister & Me

Good Evening Lovely Peeps,
Well I survived my first day on my new ward today, lots to take in, head spinning so came home for a bit of crafty time to chill. May even have a baileys!

But first I thought I would share a CAS card I made last week using Uptown Sushi Girls Stamping Bella. The image was coloured with markers and a touch of chalk. The 2 brown shopping bags were paper pieced with brown parcel paper.

The wording was computer generated using a quote I see on a blog some time ago. Unfortunately I cannot remember which one so am unable to give credit to that person. If anyone can help with this please let me know and I will add the link.

Have a good evening everyone, I'm off for a tipple now!
