Christmas James

 Here's a quick christmas card I made before I was poorly, I used this cute James the Bear stamp from Lili of the Valley coloured of course with promarkers. I added some crystal stickles to his tinsel and glossy accents to the star and the baubles. I think I used a sakura stardust pen on the star under the glossy accents. The DP is from the free MME pack which came with a craft magazine. I punched the red paper with my fiskers border punch and added some little ribbon tags and a sentiment from craft work cards to finish it off.

Centre Step Card

 I've made this centre step card for my FIL birthday, I used these instructions to make the base, so easy you wouldn't believe. The DP is from a paper cellar pad.
 I've used this incredibly cute stamp set from Kanban this one is called Wooly Bears - Hamish. I've coloured him with promarkers and used a sakura silver pen on his buttons. This set comes with loads of accessorie stamps so I have used the thistle stamp to decorate the side panels, I stamped directly onto the DP and coloured them with my promarkers.

Recycling at Incy Wincy

 Sorry my post is late I forgot all about writing it, my excuse is I'm not very well, I've got a nasty chest infection and suspected pleurisy so I'm feeling very sorry for myself at the moment. Anyway onto this weeks challenge at Incy Wincy which is Recycling and is sponsored by  Prairie Fairy. So, you can alter an item, or use something recycled on your project. Please say what has been recycled, so we can easily see it. I've made a desk calender from a CD Case. The papers are from Basic Grey and the calender tab is an Anitas one which I got from The Range.
 I have used this cute image from Prairie Fairy called Cowgirl Gilly who I have coloured with promarkers, I've added glossy accents to her glasses and used liquid pearls for her buttons.

I found this fantastic sentiment which I thought was perfect for a calender on this blog which i printed out onto some of the Basic Grey paper.
