Christmas Pudding

I thought I would share with you a card I made with 'Pudding Girl' which is one of the very sweet Christmas images by Lilyboo available at Cuddly Buddly for only 99p!

This card was so quick and easy to make great for those mass produced cards we have to make on the run up to Christmas. The papers are from the 'Christmas Holly Digi' selection, love this set for Christmas so traditional with the holly swirl in the corner.

There are exciting times ahead at Cuddly Buddly there is a  new artist joining the ranks Karen Middleton, she certainly has drawn some fantastic images especially for you fairy lovers out there. I am lucky to be working on a set called 'Enchanted Wishes' at the minute so watch this space, your going to love them

Christmas Bunny

This is one of the Christmas cards I have made with one of the very sweet Wee Digi Stamps by Sylvia Zet available at Cuddly Buddly, this one is called 'Christmas Bunny' 

I have coloured the image with my usual Copics and Prisma pencils adding some glamour dust and glossy accents for good measure, well wouldn't be a Christmas card with out the glitter lol..

I hope that the weather has improved a little for you all now that the summer holidays are almost upon us, especially for those of you with children.

Tools ~ EK Lattice Punch, MS Nestabilities, Marianne Poinsettia dies, Marianne Swedish Ice Star

Boy Praise Angel

Here is another cute image from Cuddly Buddly called 'Praise Angel 2' A real sweet image for those Christmas cards, although this could be used for other occasions.
I have coloured my image with the usual medium, cut out with label 10 dies from Spellbinders, this is on of my favourite sets of dies, as is the Cherish punch I have used.
Its been a lovely day here today, shame most of it was spent in work bet it rains tomorrow as its my day off lol.. It would be nice to have some sunshine as i have lots of washing to get done.

Got The Pip ~ Cherry Pip

Its been a while since I have taken part in any challenges so thought I would have a go this week and take part in the 'Sugar Bowl' Challenge which was a lovely sketch by Erika.

This is one of two new stamps I ordered from Funky Kits the day of release, the following day they arrived in the post how good is that? Excellent service thank you.

This little sweetie is one of the new images from the Pip collection she is called  'Cherry Pip' coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils for added shading. The papers SU! and are from my lovely friend Linda , she sent me some to try out and I love them, so fresh and summery unlike the weather this week lol.... The ticket greeting is from Cuddly Buddly and is a digi down load form the Bits Of Ivory collection, fantastic value at only £1.99 for a whole A4 sheet of stamps.

Something a little different

Here is something a little different from me but I have to say I like it.
This is a commissioned card for a friend of a friend whose only request was a BIG card with his wife's name on and her age, I just hope he likes it as I know nothing about the lady in question.
The image is a Nice and easel sheet from La Pashe these really are beautiful images and fill an 8x8 card very nicely. The papers are from the Designer series from SU! thought they matched the Peony flower perfectly.
Well my week off is almost over :( its back to work for me Monday. I have managed to get my bedroom decorated, new carpet and bedding, its all looking very posh I am very pleased with it.
