The Lady

This card is for my neighbour who will be 92 at the end of January – she certainly doesn’t look that age and still digs her garden….!!!

I used The Lady from The Paper Shelter and coloured it with Promarkers.  The patterned paper is from Polkadoodles and the plain paper was embossed with a Toga embossing folder and then distressed.  The lace, wispy trim and pearl are from my stash and the flowers are from the Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Champagne Mice Celebration

This cute digi – Champagne Mice, from Di’s Digis, is the perfect image for any celebration.  I coloured it with Promarkers, added Stickles Star Dust to the stars and traced over the spray with Stickles Crystal.  The sentiment tag is from LOTV, embossed with gold embossing powder, the ribbon and gems are from my stash and the Champagne bottle charm is from the Ribbon Girl.

Driving Home for Christmas

This time last year I decided I would make my Christmas cards throughout the year – to avoid a last minute rush.   It didn’t work out that way – but I’m going to try harder this year, and this is the first of my cards for next Christmas.

I used one of Di’s cute digis – Driving Home for Christmas, coloured it with Promarkers and added Alene’s Glitter Snow to the Santa hats.  The snowflakes are Toga die cuts – glittered with Glamour Dust, and the trees are die cuts from La Cabina – distressed with DI and glittered with Stickles Frosted Lace.  The sentiment is a Handwritten Phrase from LOTV, embossed with a Versamark pen and clear embossing powder, and the papers are also  from LOTV.

Winnie Christmas Shopping

I can now share this card which I made for a blogging friend – as it has finally arrived.  The image is Winnie Christmas Shopping from Polkadoodles.  I guess you can tell my friend likes pink…!!  I stopped before I made a pink snowflake, but the trees were die cut from very pale pink card and the edges distressed with a deeper pink.  The sentiment tags are from LOTV, the pearls are from the Ribbon Girl and the ribbon and star are from my stash.

Sleigh with Chocolates

Merry Christmas everyone – I hope you all have a wonderful day.

I won the template for this sleigh a few years ago and made it then.  This year I thought I would make it again and I bought some chocolate money to put in it.  However last weekend some friends came round for a drink and brought us these fantastic chocolates – which I realised were just what I needed for my little sleigh.  Actually I’m surprised they lasted till now as they are absolutely delicious – and I’m not a choc addict – usually I’d rather have a savoury snack.

The first time I made this sleigh I used thick card and glued the DP onto the shape, but this time I printed the DP out on thinner card and then printed the sleigh shape onto the other side.  It wasn’t till I tried to put the chocolates in that I realised it needed the thicker card for support.  I made a small box to fit inside the base, and fashioned bits for the front and back ends, which I stuck to the sides inside.  The snow at the base of the sleigh is Allene’s Glitter Snow, which is also on the white edges – but just scraped on sparingly.  The runners and the fir branch are embossed with silver embossing powder and the sentiment is from LOTV – also embossed with silver.  The silver twine, red gems and tiny bells are all from my stash.
