Peggy and friends

Hello everyone.

I hope that you have had a lovely Christmas - time with friends and family, eaten too much, drank too much and slobbed!!

It seemed really weird not making a Christmas card today! The thing is I felt that I could have carried on making them, I didn't even use all of my new Christmas stamps. They will have to wait until next year now!

So on to today's share:

Items used:
The Hobby House 'Peggy and Friends' pre coloured topper, Tonic papers, Glossy Accents, Glamour Dust, Fiskars border punch, flowers from Dies to Die for, Pink Petticoat sentiment, SU punches, acrylic domes.

I have eased myself in gently with a pre coloured topper! The star fish and shells were bought at Tavistock market but I think that the starfish was actually from the bottom of the ocean as it smells whiffy!!

I would like to wish you good health and happiness for 2014 and thank you to anyone who has left me a comment this year - it makes it all worth while!  TTFN.

Rosy cheeks Rosie!

Good morning all.

Well the weather here is absolutely awful :(

Are you fed up with Christmas cards yet and have you finished them?

I think that I have finished but I still have to write a few - how disorganised is that!!

We did the BIG food shop yesterday and the presents are wrapped.  I am ashamed to say that there has been many a year where I have been wrapping on Christmas Eve!!  Each year I say to myself that I will start earlier this year but.......!

Anyway on to today's card:

This is Winter Rosie from DigiStamp Boutique coloured with ProMarkers. The papers are from Lili of the Valley and I have added Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

I didn't add a sentiment as I didn't think that there was enough room and also the background paper said it all!

So thanks for stopping by today and hope that you are warm and cosy - TTFN.

Amber Rose Star Dance

Hi there.

The weather here in Devon has turned very nasty this evening and I think that the next few days are going to be the same :(

My youngest son has now finished school for Christmas after completing his mock exams- Yay!

I have to work one more day and that's me done. So the countdown begins..........

Here is my share for today:

I used Penny Black 'Star Dance' heat embossed with WOW! Amber Rose embossing glitter. The sentiment is DigiStamp Boutique and I dry embossed some gold card.

Not sure if I'm 100% happy with this card as I think that it looks a bit garish.
Anyway thanks for visiting today and hope you have a lovely evening - TTFN.

Sweet gingerbread house

Good evening all.

Here is a card that I made using DigiStamp Boutique 'Sweet gingerbread house' image:

The image was already coloured so that was nice and easy! I just added some decoupage layers, Wink of Stella pen, Stickles and Ranger Rock Candy- this could be my new Glossy Accents addiction!!. The papers were a freebie with a magazine.

So I hope that you likey and thanks for stopping by - TTFN.

Three French Hens

Hi there all,

hope you are well and Christmas stress free!

I have made a card for the Less Is More challenge which is 'One layer card' 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' but being the Dumbo that I am I didn't think about the ONE LAYER part and made this:

As you can see I paper pieced the image therefore it is not ONE layer -DOH!
So then I made this card:

I even refrained from using Glossy Accents for fear of breaking any rules ( you do not realise how hard this was - I LOVE Glossy Accents!! )

Items used:
Penny Black 'Coop Party!', 1st card sentiment is computer generated, 2nd card sentiment from SU 'For the Birds' set and ProMarkers.

So I have decided to enter the first card into Passion for ProMarkers challenge ( include a sentiment ) and Papertake Weekly challenge ( Christmas Creatures ).
The second card is for Less Is More challenge.

Next time I will read the rules more carefully!
Anyway thanks for stopping by and TTFN.

New blog layout

I have just had a play with my blog layout - what do you think?

I would love some feed back!

Fabulous Fashion

Good evening all.

Here is a card that I have made for my Sister in Laws birthday:

The picture doesn't show the acetate or lot's of layers!
Items used:
Katy Sue Designs 'Fabulous Fashion' cd rom, computer sentiment, acetate and silicone gel. That's a short list!!
I bought this cd at the last craft show (Exeter)  but have only just got around to using it. I quite enjoyed deco paging up the layers after I cut them out - therapeutic!  

Hope that your Christmas preparations are going O.K and you are not too frazzled!! Now that my boys are older it's not as exciting :(

Anyway thanks for stopping by TTFN.
