Snow scene

This is a what i would class as a very traditional Christmas card. Its one of Kims new Christmas roundel from Cuddly Buddly. I have coloured the image with prisma pencils and added some glitter here and there to make it look like the snow is glistening.
I will be a little quiet over the next few days as i have lots to do before i go away on Friday :) Catch you all on my return xx

Our Little Ella

Sorry no cards to share this week as have been extremely busy with work , i have worked full time hours this week when usually i only work 20 hours. We now have all our Christmas stock out, is it a little too early??? You wouldn't believe the amount of people buying for Christmas already!
Anyway back to the photo. This is Ella she is now 21 months old , some of you may remember that we got her from the NW golden retriever rescue in February. It took her a while to settle down with us and learn to trust us but now she is great a little darling, so lovable.
I hope to share a few cards with you next week before i go off on my holiday so please pop back when you can.

Crafty friends needed

Kim is looking for some new crafty friends over at Cuddly Buddly :) Here is what she said-

How it works - From time to time we’ll send you new stamps, downloadable papers plus some bits n bobs (ribbons, card, etc.) for you to create a stunning papercraft or altered art piece to showcase the new stamp. If the extras we send don’t suit the idea you have in mind when you see the stamps then just keep them in your Cuddly Buddly stash box for another day. You then send us a good digi pix of your finished card or item along with a ’materials used’ list which we add to the product web page and to our Galleries to help demonstrate the product better to our much appreciated customers.

We never ask or expect our Fabulously Crafty Friends to do any marketing for us so if you create beautiful works but don’t have a blog, or don’t participate on forums we’d still like very much to hear from you. However, if you enjoy blogging and want to share with your online friends what you’re doing with us, that’s fine and I’m happy to make up a special little button for your blog, if you’d like one.

If you’re interested in being one of my Fabulously Crafty Friends then please email me (look for Fabulously Crafty Friends on the drop down menu on the contact page) and let me know;

* who you are,
* a little bit about yourself,
* how long you’ve been crafting,
* your favourite crafting techniques,
* how many projects you think you could comfortably take on per month and …
* include a link to your blog or online photo album where I can see examples of your gorgeous creations.

Printables Update - After chatting with Susi, our Printables and Cuttables Designer, it appears that Susi would also very much appreciate a Fabulously Crafty Friend to work with her and help make up her Printables Projects too. If you enjoy making up Susi’s versatile and really useful Printable projects and taking them to the next level with the addition of embellishments and graphics then we’d love to hear from you too.

Kim is an absolute brilliant person to work with as is Susi and all the crafty friends, so what you waiting for?? Good luck to all those who enter.

C4C1 'The Snow Family'

Yep another Christmas card for Cuddly Buddly this one is 'The snow family' How sweet are they, i loved colouring these in with my prismas. The circles have been cut with nestabilities, i then added little snowflakes in blue and white. The papers are Cuddly Buddly downloads, love these tartan papers i have them in red also. The oval greeting is also Cuddly Buddly, stamped and coloured. Just realised that this sketch is on the Crazy 4 challenges site which is a new challenge site and this is their first challenge, go check it out.
