Christmas Heidi

Well what an aweful couple of days we have had.  Think we have all seen enough rain to last a life time lol! 

I have made yet another Christmas card and have followed the lovely sketch over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches).

I have used one of my winning stamps from Wee Stamps which I chose called Heidi and coloured her in with pro markers and used ice stickles for the detail.  I then cut her out with my oval nestie and layered onto a scallop oval.  The cardstock is called Lavender Lace and the ribbon is Rich Razzleberry both from Stampin Up.  The dp is a selection from DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas.  I used a snowflake die from Spellbinders Create a Flake 1, sentiment from LOTV and rhinestones from my stash.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I went out for a lovely meal to celebrate my brother and his wifes 10th wedding anniversary then had a drive through Cannock Chase where me and Seren spotted a Doe and her Fawn!

I have made yet another Christmas card following the lovely sketch over on christmas challenge (with sketches) which also has a twist of using 2 stamps and masking them!

I have used 2 magnolia stamps Angel Tilda and Tilda as Lucia, masked them using my Stamp-a-ma-jig from Stampin Up ( I would never give this up for the world) and then coloured them using my promarkers and gold glitter for detail.  The cardstock is Old Olive as is the ribbon and the dp is a selection from Jolly Holiday Designer Paper Series all available from Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from craftworkcards mounted onto an oval punched out with my SU oval punch, the snowflakes were punched out using my Martha Stewart punch and the green gems are from my stash.

I would also like to enter this card into the challenge over on Lovely-Haenglar-Only challenge which is Anything Goes.

To save a bit of time I am doing 2 posts in 1 for a change.  I have made yet another Christmas card following the lovely sketch over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches) and a birthday card following the lovely sketch on Crafty Ribbons Challenge Blog.

For the Christmas card I have used Starlight Tilda which I have coloured in with promarkers and added gold glitter to the star and her wings.  The cardstock and ribbon used is Always Artichoke from Stampin Up.  The dp are various sheets from Basic Grey Wassail Paper Pad which I adore.  The sentiment is from The Snowman Christmas Sentiments set, brad from my stash, leaves and flower from Prima.  I haven't added too much detail as most of my Christmas cards I have to post!

For the birthday card I have used one of my favourite Tilda stamps, coloured her in promarkers and cut out with my oval nestie mounted onto a scallop oval.  The card stock used is Baja Breeze from Stampin Up and the dp are a selection from Memory Box Minuet paper pad.  The sentiment is a stamp from my stash, flowers are from wildorchidcrafts and the pearls are also from my stash.

Well its back to school for Seren on Wednesday so hopefully I'll be able to get some more cards made for some challenges!  I got Seren her new school shoes on Friday which she actually grown half a shoe size since October last year!!

On Saturday we both had our hair done at my hairdressers for a charity party my brother and his wife were hosting as part of their 10th Wedding Anniversary celebrations.  My sister-in-law has suffered with cancer so decided to raise funds for the ward she has been on which they raised £800.00 on the night and more fund raising is planned for the future to boost that money.  The theme of the night was Glitz and Glamour so a good excuse for us ladies to get spruced up with fancy hair and dresses.  Here's Seren's hair from the back, Seren on the red carpet and a pic of both of us :-)

Okay so back to my crafting which I have made yet another Christmas card following the lovely sketch over on this weeks Christmas Challenge (with sketches).  I was really pleased to have won the previous sketch challenge and now to decide what to purchase with my voucher :-)

I have used Santa's Little Helper which I haven't used for ages.  I coloured her in with promarkers and added pink stickles to her hat.  I cut her out with my circular nestie and pieced onto a scallop circle.  The cardstock used is Regal Rose from Stampin Up and the dp is a selection from Papermania Mistletoe Kisses.  I used white webbing, added flowers punched out with my Nelly Snellen Poinsietta punch, added white punched fern and pink gems from my stash. Sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley.

I'm also entering this into challenge 172 on Just Magnolia which is Pretty in Pink,  challenge 132 on I Love Promarkers which is Anything Goes and Pennyblack At Allsorts which is Early Christmas Makes.
