We wish you a merry Xmas .......

Well it was my turn to set the challenge for the Christmas card gang a Sketch; and this is my card.

I got this stamp a few months back and its just sat there on my desk screaming to be used, so here it is !!! Yes a House Mouse image !!! LOVE em !!! The music stamp is from LOTV (I glittered the edges but not sure it comes out on the pic!) I coloured the image using water colour pencils, used loads of glitter on it for the snow and berries, but look no other bling !!! Papers are from Nitwits, yes I am using them again cos I just love these ones !!! hehe !!! I don't have a Xmas border punch so I improvised and used a holly punch and glues them along the edge of card !!!

Hope you like it !!

Tails of love anniversary card.

Hi there !!! Wow another week has gone by ........... where did it go !!! This week at Crafts 4 Eternity the challenge is to use one metal embelishment on your card. I made this anniversary card for family in the USA its not till early next year but I figured I had better get ahead as I will be a bit busy with baby then !!!!

Mmm ....... well I decided to make a smaller card than normal, this is a 6" card and I fancied a changed from the norm so decided upon an easel card ......... The papers are from Nitwits and the image is a House Mouse stamp called Tails of Love. I just love this image !!! I coloured it in using water colour pencils as I think these work great for the mice !!! The hearts are cut using the Marianne die set of hearts !! Me likes these ......... I did however refrain from sparkly bling and used the subtle pearls instead !!! I'm afraid my metal embelly isn't very unusual I didn't have much to hand and am so busy looking after Gran. (That's my excuse and I am sticking to it !!! hehe !!)

Forever friends - anything goes

Well hope you have a great weekend and happy crafting !

Hi there !!! This week at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a sketch for our challenge (below) and we are sponsored by Karens Doodles !!! She is giving 3 digi stamps for the challenge winner !!! Cool !!!

The image I used is an image from Karens Doodles, the skater !! I love this !!! Of course I had to colour her pink with my promarkers and glittered up her skirt, laces, collar, headband and gloves !!! I am just so in love with the Marianne stars I had to use them again !!! I used a wide piece of ribbon going across the card with a thinner one wrapping around it like a parcel ish .....

I have just the little girl in mind for this card for Xmas !!! Ooh my Christmas cards are getting to be a nice pile now !!!!

Gran made it through her operation !!! Yeah !!!! Amazing ........... I told her last night we had better start planning her 100th party then !!! Seems as tho nothing is going to stop her !!! So now its onto the next phase and her recovery which I know will be hard work for us all !!
