we were given the option of our fave, from: 

I haven't been on the design team for Glitter n Sparkle very long, 
but I knew straight away - my favourite is this, from Lacy Sunshine.....

...called Emilys windy day.
I just haven't had the time this week, to create a new card
with this image, so I hope you can forgive me for 
resubmiting a card I have already shown.
(But I do love this card)
I'm even a bit late in putting up this post! 
I guess that's just life, at this time of year - 
so much going on! 

Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave. x

My special cards...

The ones I made for my Mum & Dad, Sister and her family
and my In-laws.
This is my Mum & Dads card.
its an a5 card, computer generated sentiment,
and I found the image on my pc...have had it years...possibly from pc crafter?
Anyway - I decoupaged some of it, used some
glittery stickles and glossy accents.
The snowflakes come form  Martha Stewart border punch,
which I chopped up separately and added some glitter too.

 This card was for my sister, her partner and their children.
I chopped a Martha stewart punched snowflake
in half and fit one half, either side of the image,
which is a little glittered and glossy accented!
I found the sentiment on the internet and played about with the fonts,
to get it looking like that.... I can't believe I only finished these 3 cards on Christmas eve!

Challenge 63 - my fair lady!

When I got this image, I thought, "I know who I want to make a card with this one, for!"

My sister in law just loves all the old musicals, and with this image being " my fair lady" (by Sassy Studios) 
and with her having a christmas birthday... perfect!
(I have just come to the end of  all my christmas cards...finally!)

The challenge was to "use non traditional christmas colours. "
I think these colours look so pretty together - 
I paper pieced the dress, hat and umberella...which took aaaages, 
and I hope it was worth it! lol..  x

Traditional Christmas colours

...That's what the theme is this week, over at Glitter n Sparkle blog challenge!
I got this lovely floppy Latte image - toy stocking
and I tried to make it look like it was made of velvet...
not sure I did a good job at that! lol! nevermind :)
I used my docrafts brick embossing folder, behind,
inking the edges and the bricks to give them depth.
Finally, I tied a thin green ribbon into a bow to add
to the front of the stocking.
I will be uploading more of my deisgns for my Christmas cards, soon...
I can't believe how busy I have been recently..
and as this is the last week of school, I think this week will be a busy one too!

Winter wishes

This card is for challenge 62 over at Glitter n Sparkle...
"Winter wishes" by stampin chef. 

I've had such a mad and busy week, 
that this card was VERY last minute! 
I ended up using docrafts blue christmas papers and my
memory box snowflake border die, along with the lovely winter wishes image.
I cut some baubles form the remaining bit of paper, to 'hang'
and added a sentiment bauble form craftwork cards.
The image was coloured with my watercolour pencils.

Better late than never...

This is my card for challenge 61 - over at Glitter n Sparkle... add some glitter n sparkle!
I'm a bit late showing this one on my blog... sorry!
It's been a strange (but nice!) weekend...
we had a power cut and so had candles and tea-lights on,
with a little blast from the fire to keep us warm.
It was really lovely, especially when we decided to put the
tree up while we had all candlelight and firelight.
Very lovely!
Anyway - I digress...
This card is made using the reindeer image and sentiment
from QKR Stampede. So cute!
I glittered his antlers, his bells and a teeny bit of glitter on
each snowflake in the background.
The backing papers are docrafts papers.
Thanks for looking and any comments you might leave! x
