CHRISTMAS TILDA AND CHRISTMAS CARD CLUB 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone, after a couple of months break I have finally managed to make a couple of cards that I would like to enter into some challenges:  I know it has taken awhile but I had lost all my enthusiasm for any crafting, I then realised that time was marching on so I decided to pull my finger out and get on with making some Christmas cards.
My first card features Tilda with her Christmas tree, I have coloured her with Copics and sprinkled the tree with silver glitter, I cut her out and adhered her with silicone glue.  I used an 8x8 Christmas embossing folder then added some red spot Back To Basics paper, the sentiment is also Magnolia I stamped it with Versafine then embossed with silver powder, the hanging snowflakes at the bottom are from the Christmas range by Chloe, I have also embossed them, the black ivy is a Joanna Sheen Signature Die Cut the Poinsettias are Marianne die cuts, finally I added some pearls, red organza bow and some Magnolia gold things,


My second Christmas card is based on the Christmas Card Club theme that has been chosen by Sue and is the 12 days of Christmas, my card features the first 3.  I have used an 8x8 red scalloped base card the blue card, images and sentiment are all Hunkydory, I used gold mirri card for the matting.  I added some white ribbon and bows to the tags then added some buttons and punched snowflakes 


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


I want to thank each and everyone of you for waiting for my return and not abandoning ship, I have missed visiting you all and can't wait to start seeing your awesome work.

Hi Lorraine, yes it's good to 'see' each other again. In regards to my background and header I do them in Paint shop Pro x 6, I test tutorials on line for writers of digital tutorials so I know how to use the 'filters and plugins' to design my own blog background etc....should go into business shouldn't I?

luv aNNIe xxx
