WITH LOVE

Hi all, I hope that everyone had a wonderful, enjoyable Christmas Day.
I didn't think I would be back with a card so soon but my son's girlfriend asked if I would make a card for her brother to give to his girlfriend.  
I decided to use a Teddy Bea image that I coloured with Graph It Markers, I used both Papermania Dots paper and Bearly Mine Roses, I used burgundy textured cardstock and gold mirri card.
I embossed the 'with love' stamped sentiment with WOW gold embossing powder, the other sentiment has been computer generated, I added flowers and burgundy ribbon, I used my SU heart punch for the 3 tiered hearts. 
I have taken this picture with my new Nikon Bridge Camera, a present that I received for Christmas

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
If I don't visit before the New Year I wish everyone a very 
HAPPY NEW YEAR

SNOWFLAKES FALLING SOFTLY

Hi all, I expect everyone is busy getting all their Christmas jobs done, I have as well, but I did take time out to create this card, I felt the need to make something that I could share with you and to enter into some challenges, this is my penultimate, posting before the big day.
While digging through my stamp collection I found this little girl I have had her for quite a few years now, again it is one of the first rubber stamps that I bought from Funky Kits.
I stamped her with Memento Black Tuxedo ink and coloured her with Graph It Markers/Copics, I also added some glitter and Viva Decor.
The papers are Bearly Mine and all have been mounted onto black cardstock, I used the same cardstock for the punched snowflakes.
I stamped a sentiment, added some more Viva Decor to the centre of the snowflakes and Cosmic Shimmer Antique Pink PVA glue for the pearls around the card. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I will be visiting you later to see but I would like to thank everyone for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment, I appreciate it so much.

While going through my stamps I found a duplicate of a SUGAR NELLIE GORJUSS FOXY stamp the picture is below, it is unused I am sure I am not the only person to find a duplicate of stamps or any other craft item, lol.
I decided that I would give this stamp to one of the people who leave me a comment, must be a follower, you do not have to put a picture into you sidebar as this is not a candy item as such, but when you leave a comment just say if you would like to receive it, some I know will already have it.  I will post it abroad so any of my followers can be put into a random draw, 
Many thanks for visiting my blog I will see you all later.

The papers are Bearly Mine Designs and have been mounted onto black cardstock, I did the same with the image but also used silver mirri card I then I punched some snowflakes in the same silver mirri card.

CHRISTMAS TIME

Hi all, I have a card that I would like to share with you and enter into some challenges.
I have been doing some commenting and noticed that quite a few have changed the commenting mode and turned on word verification, I haven't been on blogger until today so not aware of the problems, I do know that Blogger is on a go slow....again......also the pictures on some blogs are not showing up, I have been busy making yet another Christmas cake (my 4th) and finishing off my cards for the family, I am continuing with commenting after posting this card, I do hope that Blogger is not going to go rogue again I am still recovering from the last bout of problems.
Anyway onto my card, I have made a Christmas one but not in the traditional colours I have gone for pink and brown my all time favourite colour combo.  The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs who are unfortunately closing down, I have used a newer image from Sheri Baldy  this one is called Blakely Flower Hat, I have mounted both the papers and image onto gold mirri card, I added a triple pink organza bow, doily, pink flower pearls, pink and brown Poinsettia's, stamped sentiment and punched gold snowflakes, the image I coloured with Graph It Markers and Copics.

CHRISTMAS GIFT SET

Today I have a little Christmas gift set to share with you and enter into some challenges.
I made a card and gift box for my son's girlfriend, I ordered her a gift but it did not come boxed so I thought it would be a good idea to make one.
For my card I have used one of my many LOTV stamps I used Momento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Graph It Markers, I used Bronze coloured stickles for the fur bits on the hat.  I used one of my Spellbinder dies for the frame and LOTV paper.
For the box I used black card stock for the base and wrap and gold mirri card for the top.
I did all the measuring of the box with my Hougie board, I cut a separate piece of gold mirri card to emboss for the top, I decided to make a wrap for the box in black cardstock, I used a circle scalloped punch and a circle Spellbinders die to join the ends and for a base to place the gold coloured Poinsettia and some leaves, I also added some little tags punched with my Fiskars tag punch.
The pictures below show different angles and looks of both card and box





I would like to enter my Christmas Gift Set into the following challenges.
Many thanks for visiting my blog I hope that you like my gift set please feel free to come back soon.
