Hi all, I am one of those unfortunate people to have caught a rotten cold and boy do I feel rough, I was supposed to have had my flu jab this morning but it was cancelled I hope that I improve enough to have it on Saturday.  I hope that all who feel unwell recover soon.
Today I have a card to share with you and enter a few challenges, I made this one a few weeks ago following the measurements in my Hougie book the only difference is I cut the main A4 card down to make a 6 x 6
The card is Kanban and gold foiled, I added a white embossed card at the back, I coloured My Bestie with Graph It Markers and Copics I then cut her out and mounted her with silicone glue onto the oval die cut, I also used my tree die cut and did the shadow effect, I added one of my wooden deer and gem snowflake, bow and sentiment.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many, many thanks for visiting my blog and for the comments you leave for me I really, really do appreciate it so much.
Have a lovely day xx

Hi all, I am a little late posing my DT card for our challenge at
our theme is

we would love to see beautiful shiny things like gems, glitter anything that sparkles and shines, and here is my DT card using a stamp that was sent to me by a blogging buddy, it is of course Tilda, I will try and list all the things I have added to my card plus I there are a few pictures for you to look at as well.
I stamped Tilda with Momento Tuxedo ink then coloured her with Copics I cut her out with a circle stitched die and added pearls and AB gems, I then used another circle die cut in silver mirror card, the papers are LOTV I distressed the edges with my scissors as I couldn't find my little distressing tool but the effect is the same.  I added some lace, and lace bow, doilies, flowers and berries, more pearls a rosette and some punched butterflies.

Hi all, today I have a card to share with you and enter a few challenges.  I am trying to get motivated to make some more Christmas cards I have been looking at my stash and am shocked at just what I have collected over the years, I have been giving some things away to the local charity store along with the cards I make, except the Christmas ones, so that they can make a bit of money, it makes me feel like I am actually doing something worthwhile.  While debating on my future in craft I found myself looking through some boxes and found some Funky Foam and some Christmas card stock that I bought from Create and Craft a few years ago, I felt that I could finally put it to some use and this is what I came up with.
I used a 6" x 6" red scalloped card for my base I used my Memory Box sentiment die and the Poinsettia card stock I mounted them onto gold mirror card I then used the Funky Foam and X Cut Poinsettia dies for the flower, because the inner card is red I decided, for possibly once in my life, to decorate the inside with the same card as on the front.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I want to thank you all for the wonderful, kind comments that I received on my last posting, I read and re-read each one, your kindness has no bounds and I am forever grateful that you make me feel so loved and needed, thank you.
