BEAR AND ROBIN!

I should be coming to the end of making my Christmas cards now as should have enough but won't do any harm to make extra just in case they are needed!!



I have followed the lovely sketch over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches) and used my Stampavie Bear and Robin clear stamp by Gillian Roberts.  I coloured in with promarkers and added Ice Stickles Crystal Ice for detail.

The dp used is a selection from Candy Cane Christmas from Stampin Up and the cardstock is Real Red also from SU.  The red adhesive gems are from my stash, sentiment from craftworkcards pieced onto an oval punched out with my SU oval punch and poinsettia from wildorchidcrafts.



ME TO YOU!

I am so pleased today is a much nicer day than yesterday as it was extremely windy and wet - we even had the most amazing rainbow ever which must be very rare at the end of November!!


I have taken a day off today to look after Seren as the teachers are taking industrial action so her school has had to be closed, so whilst I quickly post some creations I completed yesterday Seren is being occupied by the NickleodeonHD channel :-)



I have followed the lovely sketch over on Sketch n Stash to create the above cards for Seren's 2 teachers.  I couldn't resist any longer not buying the new Me To You Clear Stamp set called Winter Wonderland and chose these mini clear stamps from it to use.

I cut them out with my circular nestie and coloured them with promarkers.  The dp used is also from the Me To You range called Winter Wonderlandwhich I adore so much will have to purchase some more :-) For the cardstock I used Pixie Pink and Taken With Teal both from Stampin Up.  The ribbon is from the matching Me To You ribbon set also called Winter Wonderland and the bow tied with my bow-easy.  Roses are from wildorchidcrafts, adhesive gems from my stash and sentiment from craftworkcards pieced onto an oval cut out with my SU oval punch.

MAGICAL MONDAY - ITS A SKETCH!

I have had a lovely weekend which started on Friday night which I went out with my work colleagues and my friend for a few drinks and a curry for Christmas and then on Saturday evening I cooked a meal from the Marks and Spencer Dine in for Two range which was absolutely scrumptious.


Now onto our new challenge over on Magical Monday Challenge which is to follow a lovely sketch designed by our very own lovely Heidi.




I have used my lovely Magnolia stamp called Tilda Holding Wreath and coloured her in with my copics.  The cardstock used is Always Artichoke from Stampin Up and the dp is a selection from Basic Grey Wassail Paper Pad.  The sentiment is from LOTV pieced onto a scalloped circle punched out with my SU punch, lace trim from my stash as are the red adhesive gems.

I do hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have created.

ICY ANGEL!

For some reason I have been enjoying making my Christmas Cards this year - just hope I will have enough to send out!  I have made my creation for the LOTV challenge which is For Someone Special and followed the lovely sketch over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday.



I couldn't resist buying this lovely image from LOTV which I coloured in promarkers and added stickles to her wings then cut out with my circular nestie.  The dp I have used is a selection from Papermania Mistletoe Kisses and the cardstock is Stampin Up Regal Rose as is the ribbon.  I used my scallop circle nestie and SU scallop oval punch for the fancy backings.  The snowflakes were punched out with my Martha Stewart punches and the pink shimmer gems are Papermania.  I generated the sentiment on my laptop.

MAGICAL MONDAY - Use your Scraps

I had a lovely weekend for a change.  Seren was with her daddy from Friday to Sunday so on Friday I went out with my friend for a lovely meal at a local pub then Saturday night I cooked a meal selected from the M&S dine in for two range with the same friend.

ANOTHER XMAS CARD!!

Whilst browsing through some of my blogging friends blogs I came across a lovely challenge blog for Christmas cards called christmaschallenges and they all feature sketches so this is perfect for me as my mojo still hasn't returned!  I am also entering my card into the challenge over on ABC Christmas Challenge which has a theme of Vintage!



I have used one of my LOTV images (sorry don't know her name) and coloured her in with copics and added stickles.  I then cut her out with my circular nestie.  The dp I have used is a selection from my Basic Grey Wassail Paper Pad which sadly I have nearly finished and not sure if it is available anymore.  For the cardstock I have used Real Red from Stampin Up.  The ribbon was from my stash, sentiment is also LOTV which has been cut out using my SU oval punch and pieced onto a scallop oval cut out with a scallop punch also from SU, adhesive square gems from my stash and Poinsietta flower is from wildorchidcrafts.
