 I've used this cute digi from her store called Little Tree, coloured with promarkers, I've added some white flock to the furry bits on her cuffs and hat and I used Woodwares fluffy stuff for the snow. The papers are ones from my Christmas box and the sentiment I stamped onto a diecut snowflake. The ribbon is from Sarah at SJ Crafts.

Another Wee Stamp

 Here's another of Aimee's birthday cards, I have used this gorgeous fairy from Wee Stamps coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers. The papers are some I'd forgotton about they are from a forever friends spring pad, I've matched them with a daisy embossing folder.
 I've added a selection of flowers which have all been coloured with flexmarkers although they look white in the photo they are actually pale ppink & purple. Some pretty lace across the middle of the card with some thin ribbon threaded through it and tied in a bow on the side.

Free For All at Creative Craft World

 This weeks challenge at Creative Craft Challenge is Free for All and we have two fantastic sponsors this week, Meljen's & Letraset.
I have made a set of four CAS cards using images from Meljen's, some were given to the DT to use and some were previous freebie images. I have cut parts of the image out so that the backing card showed through, and then added some colour with promarkers. I've used glamour dust on all the images apart from the snowman and added glossy accents to some parts of the image. On the snowman I've used black glitter glue on his hat. I added the sentiment on the computer when I printed the images and then added the black line with my promarker afterwards.

Where's my Mojo?

 I've finally managed to finish a card it's only taken me all week seems Mr Mojo has done a bunk. Whilst I'm fairly happy with the final card I can't believe how long it has taken me to get it done. I have used this cute Bea image from Teddy Bo, this is the first one I have bought but think I will be going back for some more as they are so cute. I have coloured her with promarkers and in real life the colouring looks far better than it does in the photo. The papers are all digi ones from Pink Petticoat and the butterflys are punched out of shiny pink card and pink vellum with some gems added to them.

Tic Tac Toe at Incy Wincy

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy is Tic Tac Toe

and we are sponsored by

I chose to us the last line of the tic tac toe board so I have used faux stitching, a metal brad and some ribbon. I have used this fab image from them which is called Angelic Teen to make a calendar for Shannon for next year. I have coloured her with promarkers and added some gold glitter to the edges of her wings with a sakura pen.  Not sure wher the DP is from as it's been in my stash forever. I added some punched butterflys in black with tiny black gems on their bodies. The flowers have again been coloured with promarkers and held together with a brad. I run some ribbon across the base of the paper and mounted a calendar underneath it, I added some faux stitching around the calendar.

Luminary

After seeing a fab luminary on Jak's blog I decided to have a go at one. I'm really pleased with how this has turned out especially as it's the first time I have attempted anything like this. 
The paper is I think MME but it's from my scrap drawer so not sure, I've used a woodware border punch and added some silver ribbon form hobby craft around both the top and bottom. A little bow secured with a brad on the bottom half and 3 punched snowflakes on the top to decorate it.
The image is a digi from Di's Digi's and is printed onto Vellum and coloured with promarkers which was a little tricky and much easier on the smaller area's, so if you are going to attempt something like this don't choose an image with large areas of one colour. I've used distress stickles on the trims on his hat and a snowwriter for under his feet and the falling snow.
Below you can see it lit up with a battery tea light which I got from Wilkinson's for 50p. Aimee has already decided that this is going in her room for christmas so I guess I may be making a couple more of these.

All Bundled Up

Here's another Christmas card that I made with a stamp that I bought off Facebook ( It's so not a good thing that you can buy craft stuff on facebook as my bank account will tell you!), it's from Inky Impressions and coloured with promarkers. The papers are from MME 12 Days of Christmas and I have teamed them with some cream card which I have embossed with my swiss dots folder. I've added glamour dust to her scarf and round all the edges of the card and die cuts. The sentiment is from Anitas and the snowflakes are punched with a red gem in the centre.

Christmas Teddy 3

 Here's the third card I have made from this Kanban set of Teddy stamps, I have coloured him with promarkers and used crystal stickles on the furry bits of his hat. The papers are an old DCWV pad. I have added some faux stitching around the panels with a black gel pen which I have gone over with a sakura stardust pen so I have sparkly stitching. I added a die cut star again covered in stickles love these stars and this is the last one I have will need to try and find some more.

Birthday Hugs


 Well I had the whole house to myself today so decided to spend the day crafting and managed to get the huge total of 2 cards made lol really need to spend less time faffing around wish I wasn't such a perfectionist at times like this I get so much more done. I've used my gorgeous new stamp that I won from Belle's & Whistles a few weeks ago. I have coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers adding just the smallest amount of stickles to the bears heart and bow. The papers are MME Blush arn't they gorgeous I really love the papers in this pad. The flowers and pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is fom Craftwork Cards, I've used the antique white flexmarkers on the sentiment and flowers to make them more of a creamy colour to go with the papers.

Christmas Teddy 1

Whilst I was poorly I spent some of my time colouring some images ready to make some cards up. I inked up this set of Kanban teddy stamps that I bought recently and coloured them with promarkers and crystals stickles. This is the first of the 3 stamps in the set. I teamed some paper from DCWV with some Kraft card and a bit of green cardstock. I've embossed the green card with my snowflake folder.
