Just Magnolia Challenge

I had to make a quick card today for an order i had forgotten all about, whoops. I needed a sketch to give me inspiration and saw this on the Just Magnolia challenge, its a great sketch by Martine. The papers are all SU, from what set i can't remember lol.. i have so many papers that i haven't used yet. The magnolia image was stamped for me by my lovely friend Helen, i have coloured her in with prisma pencils adding some glamour dust to the wings.
Its so cold here tonight think we are all in for the coldest night of the year so far, so keep warm everyone bbbrrrrrr......

Silent Night

Well at long last i have managed to make the a Christmas card with my new SU stamp Silent night. I have seen so many lovely cards made with this stamp, all different colours have been used. I have used night of navy ink and the glittered with some glamour dust to give that lovely glistening effect. The card stock is also Night Of Navy, patterned papers are from the designer series bashful blue. I sadly don't have any Christmas greetings stamps so used one from my stash which i do believe is Stamp away. The brads and ribbon are also SU, MS doily punch for the frilly border.
I need to make some really quick Christmas cards so may just have a quick play this morning.
I hope the weather isn't to bad where you are?? Its sunshine and showers here in Cheshire, much like its been all week.
Oh i am hoping some kind blogger may be able to help me with editing my photos so that i have a plain white background :) I have PSP but just can't work it out :(

Forever Friends Christmas

Well here its another FF Christmas card made, i so love colouring in these cute lil bears. This one once again has been coloured with promarkers and prisma pencils. I have used the delicious papers by Martine again, i just love the colours so modern yet still traditional..
I have used a MS Stewart punch but can't remember which one it is, think its Zigzag. The greeting is also from Martine's paper set which i have punched out with my oval SU! punch. Oh and not forgetting that snowflake made with the Quickutz die, a little pearl added in the middle.
I hope you likey? Thanks for your encouraging comment on my last card it really did encourage me on to make some more.

Let It Snow

I am wondering how many people will still visit my blog as its been that long since i posted anything, or visited your blogs. I'm sorry i have been a bad blogger but other things have taken priority lately. I am hoping to get a few more cards made this week, especially Christmas cards.

This little cutie is a Forever friends stamp which i have coloured with Promarkers and prisma pencils. The backing papers and greeting has been made by Martine, over at 'The Craft Table' thank you for sharing these delicious papers. The snowflake was made with a quickutz die that i bought from Sue, a little fiddly to put together but i like it.

Well i hope to be back later in the week with some more Christmas cards. I have my SU stamp Silent Night all stamped and ready to put on a card
