I made this card for Cuddly Buddly and used Christmas Tickets for the sentiment, frosted lace for the paper .... ooh there really is some yummy designs in the set ! and Toby Tumble lets go sledging 3D sheet ! I glittered up the edges  and star with Stickles Star dust. The star is from Marianne Star and Bauble die, I used a Martha Stewart punch for the leaves and flowers from my stash !

A kiss with a wet nose !!

Aww ........... I LOVE this pre-coloured image from Cuddly Buddly ! So sweet !! The papers are Quilted Holly, ooh yummy !! These are going to get used loads for my Xmas cards !! The image is Emmy Kissing. I used my circle Spellbinders and Marianne Icicle die, ribbon and flowers from my stash. The sentiment tags are beautiful, these are Christmas Tickets and of course I blinged it up with my Stickles Star Dust glitter glue !! I really prefer this "shade" as it doesn't dry changing the colours of the image below like some "shades" do.

Well I hope you like her !! This is going to go to my friend who just loves dogs !!! She makes cards too so I know she will appreciate it !!

Well I guess I best get going as cards to make !! lol ......... I wish try cleaning and cooking and Ironing !!!

Well, as I am trying to avoid doing my normal square card ......... I know its square but its a tent card !! Not made one of these for years !

The pre-coloured image is 3D Toby Tumble Walking in Clover Papers are Toby Tumble Floral Boquet. I glittered the flowers with Star Dust Stickles and used Marianne dies Bird and fence; LRO205 and Branch Forest LR0150. I used flowers and gems from my stash and the butterfly is a Die-namics die. The sentiment is from the 3D sheet I just cut it out and stuck it on !!! lol !!
