Just a quick post to show a card I made for my mom and dad's wedding anniversary.  They celebrated their 43rd anniversary on Thursday which they spent the day in Llandudno.  The photo of them was what I took last Saturday as we all went to Portmeirion for the day.


Its been a rather quiet week for me this week as Seren has been away with her Daddy to Barmouth.  Seren will be back with me Bank Holiday Monday then I have a week off with her which we are planning to visit a zoo and also get some school shoes sorted out.

I have made use of my quiet time creating another Christmas card following the lovely sketch over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches) which has a theme of Blue, White and Snowflakes.

I have used one of my Magnolia Christmas stamps and coloured her in with pro markers and ice stickler.  I cut out with my oval nestie and placed onto a scalloped oval.  The cardstock is from Stampin Up called Ballet Blue and the dp are various pieces from the Forever Friends Christmas Snow paper pad.  Ribbons are from my stash, large snowflakes punched out with my Martha Stewart punch, small snowflakes punched from my small punch (don't know the name), pearls from Hobbycraft and sentiment from The Snowman Christmas Sentiments set.

Sorry I still haven't been around much but what with the main school holidays and work its been quite hard to find some time to myself to get any crafting done!!

I am on my own this week as Seren has gone to Barmouth with her daddy in his uncle's caravan so fingers crossed the weather stays nice for her.  I am off for a week next week so hopefully I can get Seren's new school shoes and also do some daytrips as been promising Seren we would go to the zoo sometime if the weather was nice!!

Anyway thought I'd better get my skates on with yet another Christmas card and followed the lovely sketch over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches) this week.

I have used my Tilda as Lucia Christmas stamp and coloured her in with pro markers.  The cardstock used is Garden Green and Real Red from Stampin Up.  The dp are a selection from Merry Moments Designer Paper Series also from SU.  The sentiment is from craftworkcards layered on an oval punched out with my oval punch from SU.  Green gems are from my stash.
