Christmas is coming


Less than eight weeks now till Christmas, it's certainly creeping round. But, a good thing about Christmas is that it means summers back on its way, yay! I, for one, do not like these cold dark days.
Well onto my card, I'm entering this into Just Magnolia and hAnglar stAnglar 'Christmas is Coming'.

This is one of the images I got in my package from the stamp club. I ordered some, pre-order from bunnyzoescrafts and even though I received them Saturday 15th I've been sooo busy they're still on my desk, in their packets in my craft room-this must change soon!!
I've eventually been brave enough to make a challenge card with Tilda coloured with distress inks-away from my comfort zone of my copics. (Thanks Mel for your advice). I've used glamour dust on her wings and German glass glitter on her wand. The memory box borders have been cut from some gorgeous sparkly card I found in my stash and I have no idea where it's from and I'd love some more. The doo hickey poinsettia's have been covered in glossy accents and then sprinkled with twinkles.
That's it for now, I've got a few more birthday cards to make before I allow myself to ink up my new Tilda's.
Take care,

Button It

Hi everyone,

What glorious weather we've had! We had a lovely day yesterday, the kids and I walked our dog round the seafront and then with my hubby we went to a couple of local beer gardens. But, all good things must come to an end, and seeing as though we live on the north east coast-it's ended :(.

As the weather is slightly awful I've had chance to make another card, which I'm entering into a few challenges. The first one is Lili of the Valley where the theme this week is 'Button It'. I'm also entering it into Sweet Stop SketchesSSS128 where there is a lovely sketch to follow. Finally I'm entering it into abc-challenge where anything goes.

The christening image is from Lili Of The Valley and is just perfect for christenings, I've used it loads. The paper is from Raspberry Road and I love them all. I've punched the flowers out using different sized retro flower punches, using the same paper and distressed the edges. The buttons and string from my stash. I can't remember where the sentiment is from, but when I find the name of the site I'll add it on as they have loads of fantastic stamps.

Short and sweet today as I'm almost off to my mam's for Sunday dinner, I am sooo looking forward to it. I've been poorly most of the week, but by the way my tummy is rumbling I've got my appetite back.

Take care, hugs
