Tilda with a Candy Cone

Evening everyone. Another Christmas card to share with you - I'm really on a roll now, eh?! And I'm getting back into this blogging lark! Woohoo, is good to be back among friends!
Image and Papers - Magnolia watercoloured with distress inks.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Metal Corner and Pin - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Flower - Duck Pond Crafts.
Other - Lace and Red Cabochon from stash, Red Card - Bazzill Basics.

Don't look too closely at my colouring! This is one of the images that I coloured for last Christmas but then didn't get round to using on a card and when I was going through them the other week, this one was one of the more passable ones but certainly nothing to write home about ;-)

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
And I think that's about it! Off to do some visiting now, in between a bit of telly watching. Thanks for popping by, see you

One Sketch, Two Ways

Evening peeps! Inspired by my lovely blogging buddy, Nic over at Coops Cluttered Corner, who has recently done a couple of posts where she's used one stamp, three ways, etc. I thought I would have a go and do one sketch, two's the sketch, from the Paperminutes challenge blog:

And here are my cards:

Image - Pollycraft coloured with Spectrum Noirs/Promarkers with Stickles and Viva Decor Pearly Pen.
Paper - Kanban 'Male Backgrounds' CD and Coredinations Whitewash and Blue Mirri card.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Flower - Petaloo.
Other - Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder and Gems from stash.

Image - Digistamp Boutique coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - Papermania.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Other - Snowflake Punches, Red Card and Gems from stash.

And there you go! What d'you think? Which ones your fave? Well, I'm off to watch the end of 'Made in Chelsea'. Does anyone else watch it? Some of them are so posh, it's funny and Spencer (who was also on the Batchelor - not that I watched it!!) is the biggest slimey, weasely greaseball ever!!!!! Do you get the impression I don't like him much?!? Ha, ha. Thanks for popping over to 'see' me. Bye for now..................xx

The Cutest Reindeer Hat!!

Morning! It's time for a new challenge over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and this week, it's a fab sketch by our lovely, Claire. Here's my card:
Image - Pollycraft coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers.
Papers - Freebies from a magazine last year.
Sentiment - Magazine freebie.
Wooden Embellie - Crafts U Love.
Other - Ribbon and Gems from stash.

I'm loving Pollycraft digis at the mo! I bought lots of the bundles when the store closed down earlier on this year and it'll take me ages to work my way through them all but I thought I'd make a start with the Christmas ones! When I first started making this card, I had in mind it being for a little boy but then I think I kinda ruined that idea with the big bow, so now I think I might send it to someone from my little boy.....although he's not quite so little anymore!! This card came together pretty quickly until I got to that little wooden present embellie and then everything I tried colouring it with, didn't work. In the end, I remembered my Sakura gel pens and they did the trick!
I'm also going to enter my card into the following challenges:
And I think that's about it! I'm going to get back to our busy day of doing nothing LOL! My dad and my aunt will probably pop in on their way past but apart from that, we're having a super quiet one today - Sam's been glued to xbox live virtually since he got up this morning so I should get some crafting time in! Hope you've had a good weekend - enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for visiting! Don't forget to join in over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

Evening - my Christmas card quest continues! Here's another one I've made following the sketch over at The Sweet Stop (You'll have to tilt your head - I've been trying for ages to get it to appear the right way round and I can't - anyone got any ideas? It's driving me nuts!!):
Image - Freebie from Broken Box Stock coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers and Die Cut Trees/Label - My Mind's Eye 'Colourful Christmas'.

Dies - Oval/Scalloped Oval nesties and Sizzix 'Woolly Hats'.

Sorry for the super short and sweet post tonight but The Walking Dead is just about to start and I must give it my full attention from start to finish ;-) Any other fans out there? Let me know what you thought of the season opener!?! Right, I'll be off then. I'll see you again over the weekend, thanks for popping by..................xx

A Very Good Penguin

Evening! Just like every year, it's suddenly struck me that I really need to pull my finger out on the chrimbo card making! Each year, I say to myself 'I'll start earlier this year' but do I 'eck!! But anyway, here's one that I made to join in with the Inspired by Stamping sketch challenge (IBSIC#30)
I've used one of the new images from Digistamp Boutique - how cute!!?? Coloured with Spectrum Noirs - I coloured the background of the image in a very light green to match the papers cos I thought it would work better, the papers are last year's faves (and still a fave this year!) - Echo Park's Holly Jolly, which I stocked up on in the sale at the beginning of the year. Then I've added some ribbon from my stash and some punched layered snowflakes that seem to become a staple embellie of mine when it comes to christmas cards!! So - what d'you think?
Just gotta say before I go....only 2 more days til the new series of The Walking Dead!!! OMG, I am sooooo excited, I watched the first three series repeats in preparation and now I literally cannot wait! Right, that's it from me for
