Under the Mistletoe


Today I'd like to share with you a card I made for my husband this Christmas.

Looking at this photo it doesn't look that good but in real life it's quite warm.
I made the card shape from a Dutch Doobadoo purchased from I cut it out from kaisercraft-smoke-weave-cardstock and then used papers from their Christmas-edition-papers to make the flowers and leaves. I also cut out a sentiment which I mounted on black, I also cut out a lamp too. The Kaisercraft supplies were purchased at Chrissy's online store  The bow is black satin with a sheer silver one on top. There is glitter glue dotted around as well.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Winter Wonderland Reminder

Hello There!

Today I'd like to share with you all a card I have made for our Besties International December challenge. As always we are a anything goes challenge but we do have a theme and this month it is Winter Wonderland .

So here is my second project for the month.

For this card I've used the sweet image img707  which I coloured in with my Promarker pens. I have also used papers from my stash and flowers from a tiny piece of Graphic45 which I had left over. 
The card is a 6x6 cream base and to finish off I added a couple of holly leaves and a cute wavy sentiment.

I do hope you can come and join in with us, there are images to win and a Guest Designer spot if you choose.

Winnie and snow friends.

Hello there,
As I mentioned in my last post I am posting twice today and here it is!

This is my second post for the new challenge over at Lil patch of crafty friends. As always a anything goes challenge with some super prizes to be won. Today we have 2 great sponsors one of whom has supplied us with this wonderful image to colour & create with  Here is my card

This card I have made using a Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art stencil from the wonderful   
shop. I have covered it in paper from Kaisercraft which I first stitched around with red metallic thread. I have used images from a sheet of Graphic45 paper along with a sketchy heart cut out from red glitter paper on the left hand side. I also cut out two trees using the red and chocolate  glitter paper (this I've had for years in my stash bought from the kids section of a craft store) used for the heart. I added a sentiment to the top right (another old stash item) and to finish off a selection of flowers, leaves and berries.

The image is that of Snowman-friends  part of the Winnie White collection. I have coloured her in using my Promarker pens and matted her on to some red glitter paper too. are giving the winner a gift voucher for £6.75.

I do hope you can come on over and play this time around. Thanks for stopping by today and let me know you have been by leaving a word or two.

Emma the Snow Angel.

Hello there,

Today I'd like to share with you the card I have made for our new challenge which is #71 over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends

We have 2 wonderful sponsors this time around and the first is Fred She Said and they are giving away a gift certificate for $10.

I have chosen this lovely image called Emma the Snow Angel . To be honest there were so many lovely images it was so hard to choose. They are even available coloured in too.

I have made this card base out of cream cardstock and its odd in size because I printed out the image a bit too big so the card is 6x7. I added first a green paper which I ran through a swiss dot embossing folder. Then on to that I added a muted Christmas red doily. The stripe paper from Kaisercraft helped me decide the colours used for the image which I coloured in using my Promarker Pens.
I used my Cricut Machine to cut 2 stars in the RolyPoly cut at 51/4 one in the deep red and the other in the stripe paper. I distressed the edges. I also cut out the letters for SNOW in the red and green used else where on the card.
The image is matted on to green and added to the card. I also cut out some stars and dotted them around and a few touches of glitter glue too. I decided to add a wee tag to which I added a snowflake charm and a metal plate with the word ANGEL on it. This I have had in my stash for well over 10 years!!

Come back a little later today to see another card I have made using a image from our second sponsor.

I do hope you will come over and join in the fun. Thanks for stopping by today.

A Bestie Wonderland

Hello again,

Today I'm here to share my project for the Bestie International challenge blog. As you know this is a any thing goes challenge with the added twist of a theme, this month it is Winter Wonderland. Which basically means anything with a "chilly" feel to it lol. If you join in with us (and I hope you do) you stand the chance of winning some super images by Sherri Baldy.

Here is what I came up with this time around a sweet little gift bag to house a little Christmas gift.

The bag is just 5 inch square out of kraft paper and on to that I added some soft green/blue gingham paper. then using papers from the same paper pad I cut out the sentiment (3times for depth) the trees and the snowflake. I also cut out the horizontal strip and ran that through an embossing folder and on to some red glitter card. I let it hang over a little. I tied some red twine around the handle and added some red sequins too. The centre snowflake I painted with white paint and touched the trees with it too.

The cute little image is called Lil Rosie NEW Boots and I coloured her in using my Promarker pens. She is cut out using a Spellbinder die and mounted on to red glitter card.
Thanks for stopping by, nip on over to checkout the other girls makes (there are some stunners!) and then link up your own little beauty.
