Merry Christmas Heidi

Good Evening,

I hope everyone is ready for Christmas, I'm not it just seems to have crept up on me this year & I think I'll still be running about Christmas eve trying to get everything sorted.
I have managed to find a spare 5 mins to share this card with you that I have made using the lovely Heidi Stamp from Whimsy. She is such a cute little stamp, I have coloured her using Distressed Markers and I have added some glamour dust to her coat to give it that bit of bling. I have distressed the edges of the papers with Tea Dye distressed ink.
The papers & lace are from Live & Love crafts & the ribbon is from the Range, I have also decorated the inside of this card not something I do a lot but I must say I do quite like it.

Sketch Saturday - Anything Goes - Any Sketch after #215. I have chosen #228

Christmas boxes with Tilda

Good Afternoon,

Its a lovely cold day here & we've just come back from taking our little dog Kacey for a walk. She wasn't overly happy about being hosed down when we got back but she was filthy ;-)

I have had a go at making the tower of boxes that i watched Dawny P make on Lili of the Valleys show on Create & Craft. They are super easy to make & look fab when you've finished. I used 3 of the papers from Lili of the Valleys Classic Christmas pad & added some Merry Christmas ribbon that i bought in HobbyCraft. I have added Pink Ribbon Tilda on the front, she has been coloured using Distressed Markers & a spot of glamour dust has been added to her bow.

This is for sale in my facebook store

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:

I will be back later with another post, see you soon

Spotlight on Molly

Afternoon all,

I thought I would have a go at the Spotlight technique as it is the challenge theme at Passion for Pro Markers challenge this week & I have never heard of it before.
I have used the fab Molly Rules stamp set from Visible Image & coloured her head up with Pro Markers. I have used WOW embossing powders on the naughty & nice sentiment, skull & heart stamps to give them a bit of sparkle.

You can see the sparkle of the WOW embossing powder better in this pic.

Pink & White

Hello everyone,

Wow we have had our first frost of the year; it was really pretty this morning with the mist over the field & just the tops of the trees showing, if only I had time to take a photo.
Today's card I have made using Kitty Gifts from Lili of the Valley I have coloured them up with my Pro Markers & have added glamour dust to the hat & bobbles on the scarves. I thought it looks at tad bare with only the stamp image so I added some pink polka dot ribbon to finish it off.


You can see the glamour dust better on this picture.

On the Ice

Good Morning,
Finally i seem to be getting somewhere with the Christmas Cards, i don;t know if it's because the clocks have gone back & it's dark when i come home from work which means that the festive season is nearly here.

I have added some gems & pearls to the snowflakes as i love a bit of bling & there is some glamour dust on her underskirt & bow for that added sparkle.

Something different

Morning All,

I thought i would try something different & i have come up with this little picture in a frame. I have used some wonderful digi's from Make it Crafty to make this scene, i have used sweet devilina, Fairy Tree House & whimsical digi elements. I had a lot of fun putting this scene together as it's one of the first ones i have done, it did take quite a while to colour as there are a lot of little details & i did get a tad confused a few times as i couldn't quite make out what was what but i did get there in the end. the picture has been coloured with a mixture of Copic & Pro Markers, i have added a bit of glamour dust to her wings as i do love the stuff.
