Happy Christmas

Hi everyone, just finished wrapping the presents so thought I'd have a quick blog before the sherry comes out (lol).  I thought I'd share a few cards with you today, the first one I made for my dad using a Sarah Kay stamp which I've coloured with copics and around the edge I've used an Adirondack dabber in gold. I've used distress ink pads on the backgrounds and one of these I sprayed with glimmer mists then stamped with Hero Arts French Writing stamp.  A couple of bits of green ribbon and a stamped sentiment completes.

These next two saucy ones are for my youngest son (it's OK he's 30 now) and my nephew who is a couple of years older.  Both have been unlucky in love this year so I thought these cards might bring a smile to their faces.  They are digital downloads from Kenny K which I've coloured with copics and matted and layered with red and white card and distressed the edges.

The final card is using Molly Bloom stamps and I used a similar layout as Clare has on her blog so not really my own design.  I've used my copics for colouring and the border punch I used on the tag edge and gingham side panel is a fiskers.  Paper from stash and printed gingham paper from CD.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and great New Year - Linda x

Pink for a girl

Good morning everyone!  It's cold and frosty here this morning but at least the sun is shining.  I'm sharing with you today a card I've made for a new baby girl.  I've used a Penny Black stamp and coloured with copics.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the heart border.  Sentiment is from a set by Paula Pascual which I've punched out and mounted onto a nesties scallop circle.  Card, papers, ribbon and buttons from stash.  Hope you like!  Hope you all have a nice day - Linda x
