Christmas part 3....

Well, I haven't finished yet.... I am going to get these made and sent in the first week or so of December... I always say that though, and never manage it! haha...

Again, I have been using my pink petticoat papers and cute snowman images, with the odd bit of stickles and glitter here and there...

Oh, this card (below) was made using a lovely dovecrafts paper. I just cut out the squares and arrnaged on my card, adding some glossy accents, (but you can't see that on the piccie...I used glossy accents on hats, wings, beaks, etc) and then hand writing around the image, like a frame. My friend Pam, didn't believe I had written it myself, until I sat and made a card with her and wrote all the way round the edge! Thanks for looking! xx

More christmas cards...

Thought I would use some of the downloads which I bought earlier in the year. I think the are so cute! I used pink petticoat christmas papers with these cards...

Then, I found this paper...a dovecraft cristmas paper, which I thought would be very cute with this winter thyme image. I bought this paper as pasrt of a pack, at Aintree craft show in May...and the pack was only £1!!!!

Again, Pink petticoat paper was enough for this image to stand out.... I love the fact that the message/ sentiment is there, ready, on the paper. One of my favourite christmas papers at the mo I think. Mind you, there are a lot of christmas papers that i like....some I haven't been able to cut into and use yet! xx

A proper start on my christmas cards....

I sat down on Sunday night, and made a start on my christmas cards!

I had bought some dovecraft papers at Aintree craft show in May and loved this christmas tree paper. I thought it went really well with this pink petticoat image that I have had for aaaaaages and never used!

Pink petticoat papers and one of last years images.... I think i got these too late to use last year, sand think they are sooo cute! (coloured with promarkers) I think the red flower is quite cute too.

Yet again...Pink petticoat papers and image... what a cute little donkey! (coloured with promarkers) I added a dot of liquid pearls on the little snowflakes, and used it on donkeys tail and hat too.

This is another card made using the dovecraft papers,...I didn't think this needed much more than cutting out the squares and mounting them to this 9 square shape. I might add a little glitter to this before I send it though :)

Thanks for looking!!! xxx

Gardeners wellie

Just a quickie tonight...made this gardeners wellie last night. Wanted to do something a little different with the wellie template, and came up with this. I am going to make a little bus wellie too, but couldn't find the paper I wanted to make that last night. The label is a little difficult to see, but it says "best wishes". All the gardeners items were cut on my bigshot. xx

My nieces birthday card

I asked my niece (who will be 6 on Saturday) what she would like on her card from me...she said "Pink, flowers, and a butterfly"....

This is what I came up with.... I used a paper i think i got in a poundshop. The nestie... my friend Pam cut for me, and she also let me stamp her little girl with a cupcake... Thanks Pam!!! I stamped the nestie with a stamp I have but hadn't got round to using yet. Oh, and Pam also gave me some card candy (from craftwork cards) which I used as the centre of flowers, with a little bit of stickles over the top to make them sparkle. I added a bigshot tag and wrote her name on. I also cut the butterfly on my bigshot...its a lovely quickutz die.

I hope she likes it! xx
