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.

Jingle Belles Rock (Albeit I'm a bit late!)

Hello There,

I'd like to share today 3 cards I made to join in with the jinglebellesrock.blogspot. challenge a couple of weeks back but unfortunately I was too late! The challenge was to include a animal.

All were made using a cream card base, the top 2 are 5x7 and the last is a cute 5x5. I have used a sheet of Graphic45 Christmas paper/images. Brown card for the first mat and green for the next which has been run through an embossing folder. The top 2 have their images matted on to brown which was gutted from the first (I can't waste card!) layer. I added the image on a angle and finished with a holiday greeting and glitter glue. The last has some spare Graphic45 card as the central mat and the image is matted on to another scrap of green. To this card I added some holly leaves and berries and a little brown banner.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Today I'm sharing over at:

Show Us Your Fall Colours

It's reminder time over at Bestie International and we are still looking out for your Autumn Colours if your going along with our theme, if not just join in with anything goes.

Here is what I made this time around

It is a little 5x6 card to say Thank You. These I find always useful to have in a draw to give someone for a act of kindness they show you along the way.
I used some dot paper first and to that I added a panel from a Kaisercraft paper which had the swallows in it. I also used my banner die from Verve and another which is this lovely Thank You sentiment. I added a few dots of pumpkin liquid pearls too.
The image is Gill Day Dreaming and I coloured her in using Promarker pens and then fussy cut her out and lifted her on foam pads sitting on the banner.

Thanks for stopping by, leave a word or two as it's nice to read you.

Someone Special

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my best friend Sandy's birthday. As she is a crafter too its always hard to come up with something new for her. I decided not to colour in a image this time (partly because she's 10x better at it than me) but to use another Dutch Doobadoo shape art called Fantasy A5. which I purchased at the wonderful Crafteezee online store

I cut the shape out in light purple and matted on to it BoBunny paper. I cut out a couple lace boarders along with a selection of leaves, a butterfly and the main owl panel on the front which I stamped my sentiment on to from the Verve stamp set called Simply Amazing . Then I took a selection of flowers picking up the colours from the papers and arranged them down the left hand side. A couple of sequins and were done.
Oh no I almost forgot, I added a little bronze charm which I filled with purple glitter glue to pull it all together. The Antique-Bronze-Filagree-Oval-Frame  is also from

Here is a slight side-on view

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Birthday my super friend. x

A Christmas Jar


Welcome to another post showcasing our challenge #69  over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends.blogspot.   As always we are a Anything Goes challenge which just so happens to have some wonderful sponcors and this time we have 2  Peppercus-design.  giving away 3 images and the wonderful  giving away 4 images

I have chosen to use the Christmas-jar which I have coloured in using my Promarker pens.

I made a 5x7 tent fold card and used papers to match some of the colours I had used. There had to be red so that became the main mat along with the ric rac ribbon. As the image had 2 lovely stars in it I added some more which I die cut out. The two sentiment stamps are odd ones which I can't remember who made them.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you can come on by and add your own creation for a chance to win. Check out what the rest of the team have made.
