Happy Christmas everyone!

Hi everyone and wishing you all have a very Happy Christmas.  Sorry I've not posted anything for a while but I've been so busy with Christmas and everything.  I was going to post something last weekend but we were one of the unfortunate ones to loose our electricity for 2 1/2 days.  You don't appreciate how much you rely on it until you don't have it.

Anyway, here are a couple of boards I made as presents for my son and my sister.  Hope you like them!

Charisma Cardz Challenge # 44 - Sketch

Good afternoon everyone - what a lovely sunny day it is in the Fens - much better than yesterday's rain, but that did give me the excuse to spend time doing a bit of crafting.  My second posting is for this weeks Charisma Cardz Challenge.  I used a white base card and Winter Wonderland papers from Dovecraft.  The image is from Kars Ollyfant Clear Stamps which I stamped with Stazon (black) onto a white circle.  The watercolouring was done with Marvy Le Plume pens.  This was mounted onto a blue card cut with nesties scallops which I inked around the edge with a blue inkpad.  I used a piece of ribbon from stash for the side border and 4 white snowflake eyelets for the base of the card.  Stamped and cut out 3 tags for side of image and punched 3 snowflakes from glitter card which I mounted onto the card with foam pads.  Hope you like it!

My Time To Craft Challenge

Hi all, this is the first entry on my blog so hope it's OK. Everyone tells me how great it is to share ideas and I've been following a few 'crafty blogs' recently so thought I'd give it a go myself. I've decided to enter this weeks 'My Time To Craft' Challenge 'So Many Scallops'. My entry is an engagement card made recently for friends of my youngest son. I used a plain white base card, digital download backing paper from 'Pink Petticoat' which I punched on one side with Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch. The image is Sarah Kay which I stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black onto the scallop shape cut with my Cricut (Accent Essentials cart) and coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens - this I layered onto the larger blue scallop. I used a Fiskers heart border punch on the base card, computer generated text which I diecut using nestabilities. Charm and ribbon from stash.
