More LOTV circle sentiments.....

Oh boy I LOVE these LOTV digies!!! And I am loving the fact that I can change the size to suit with the digi stamps. Played some more last night and made 2 more cards with enlarged circle sentiments cut out with nesties. My cards are 6"x6". Unfortunately its a dull, grey day here so the pics are not great, but at least we don't have any white stuff.............yet! There is lots of sparkle on my card but it doesn't really show in the pic :0(

As soon as I saw the current Lili of the Valley challenge I knew the sketch would be perfect so off to play I went and here is my first card....

Lili of the Valley (of course) ~ Challenge 75 Bev's sketch and a fab one it is too!
Wild Orchid ~ Challenge 10 - Blue Christmas
ABC Christmas challenge ~ X is for Xmas
Bah Humbug ~ Feeling the blues

Now there is even more sparkle on my second card and you can see some in the close up. I bought myself a can of Crafters Companion spray & sparkle a while back.
Oooooooooh this stuff is just gorgeous!!! I had intended to spray the embossed backing bit of card but got carried away and had attached the raffia lace and stuck it down onto my base card before I remembered. No worries.......I sprayed the whole lot :0)
Here's a close up so you can see the gorgeous iridescent sparkle.

and here is the rest of it......
Papertake (2nd entry) ~ Cut it out.......nesties and Sizzix Holly & Berries die #2
Christmas Club ~ Use a die ....... again nesties & sizzix die as above
Off to snuggle up with the kids & a movie.
Have a great weekend!

LOTV circle sentiments

Me again! :0)
What am I like.......another card which has missed a deadline, the Bah Humbugs challenge ended at noon today. But I do still have time to enter it for a couple of other challenges, so here goes:
Christmas Club challenge ~ Anything goes.
Totally Gorjuss challenge ~ Not so traditional Christmas colours and my gorgeous element......
well the fab LOTV circle sentiment of course!
Papertake challenge ~ Cut it out.....with nesties and my Leone Em new ash family punch.

Right off to play again. Just can't resist having a go at this weeks House Mouse & Friends challenge ........ Envelope Art! Pop over and take a peek at the brilliant DT examples, very inspirational.....just gotta try it!

Basic Grey Challenge ~ Wings

Brrrrrrrrr bit on the chilly side isn't it! Anyone knee deep in the white stuff yet? Lets hope the wind changes direction and whisks it off else where! I am craving warm sunshine already.....
Nothing for it but to snuggle down indoors with a nice hot tea and a spot of crafting.
I made this card with 3 challenges in mind but missed the bus with 2 of them (how unlike me.....not!) Oh well never mind.
Challenge: BasicGrey challenge 33 ~ Wings. Just look at that fabby BasicGrey paper.......they are Marjolaine creme de menthe, double sided and sooooo delish! I am afraid the pic does not do the colours justice (another good reason to bring back that warm sunshine!)
Keep warm n snuggly

Patience ~ by Mo Manning

As soon as I saw this wonderful image by Mo Manning I knew I just had to get it! It is just perfect for my daughter and our poor kitty cat. I have had several of this image coloured in ready and waiting until her birthday last week. Here's what I made....
Unfortunately I almost dropped my distress ink pad right on top of the image and managed to get a couple of smudges on the cat but it was too late in the day to do much about it :0(
I have used this fortnights sketch from the Sketch and Stash challenge my stash element is the image that I have had for ages and the paper. I would also like to enter my card for this weeks LOTV challenge ~ Anything goes (for this week only you can use any stamp/digi image)

PB ~ Wishes for Kisses

Hope you are enjoying the weekend ....... not many more of them now before the big day.....Yep I do mean CHRISTMAS!!!! Gulp!

The postie delivered some gorgeous flowers I had ordered from Wild Orchid Crafts, oh boy those Hellebore's are so beautiful!! I just had to play. After a few issues over how to fix them to my card, I eventually opted to cut off as much stem as I could and stick the flower down with a blob of silicon adhesive. My fingers are tightly crossed in the hope that all the stamens stay on the flower & it doesn't all fall apart.

Papertake ~ Fab sketch by Dawny P
Penny Black at Allsorts (November) ~ It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Totally Gorjuss ~ Traditional Christmas colours
Christmas stamping all year long ~ Stripes
Wild Orchid Crafts ~ Classic Christmas
ABC Challenge ~ H is for Holiday (Chrimble holidays)
Cute Card Thursday ~ Anything goes

Thanks for visiting. off to watch X Factor with the kids.

Snow Cuddle.....

....... that's the name of this super cute snowman image from Penny Black stamps. An oldie but a goodie from 2003. I seem to have been doing a fair bit of colouring lately, but not much card making, so I've decided its high time I addressed the balance. So as I have several versions of the lovely snowman coloured in, this is the image I have used first. Here's my card....
Hmmmmm now I've loaded it the pic is a bit dark/off but you get the idea.
Challenges I would like to enter :~
BasicGrey Challenge 32 ~ A lovely sketch by Heather. My papers are Dasher - Snowbank and
a co-ordinating page from my Two Scoops pad.
Penny Black Saturday challenge week 126 ~ Let it snow.
Only 49 days til the big day!!! Eeeeeek.....more chrimble cards needed!
Thanks for dropping by.
