Wee stamps topper

Hi, hope you have all had a nice Christmas, and have not indulged to much!!

I was working Nights and finished on Boxing day morning so today is my firs proper day at home, and apart from this post I am going to spend the day watching TV with my lovely Husband who has been a  little neglected over the last few weeks whilst I was finishing off my Christmas cards and making cakes.

Papertake weekly challenge for this week is Pick of the Year and I have chosen to use the Last christmas card of the year challenge

My card for today

I have used a card topper from the Hobby House Wee Stamps Holly Time sheet.

I have added loads of glamour dust and mounted onto Navy blue card.
The paper is from LOV Christmas pad which I bought last year.
The snowflake is from the Spellbinders set.
The blue and white pearls are from Hobby House.
The sentiment is computer generated

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Many thanks for looking

Free Digi

Good afternoon, hope you are all tucked up safe away from this awful weather!!  It is atrocious here in Leicester, upstairs of the house feels like being on top of a mountain with the wind blowing around the windows, and the rain lashing against them.
I have still got one or two presents to wrap (think I will be doing them on Christmas morning lol)

I have made two A6 cards today using this months free digi stamp from Digi Stamp Boutique, only available during December,  it comes both coloured and black and white.

I have printed out the coloured image onto white linen card and die cut with a scalloped rectangle die, added some glamour dust just for a change! and a couple of gems.  

The papers are from my scrap box left over from last christmas and just the right size for these cards.

Many thanks for visiting.

Winter Fence

Evening to you all, hope you are all ready for the big day, can not believe that it is only 2 days away, I really do not know where the time goes.

I am working Nights this week so trying to fit in all my last minute shopping and still have some presents to wrap!!

I have been busy over the last few days icing Christmas Cakes for my family and will add some pictures at the end of this post.

Onto my card.

The image is a digital from Pink Gem Design and you get both a black and white and this coloured image in the price.
I have used a square card base from craft work cards.
I used an embossalicious snowflake folder and white linen card and mounted this onto Red card, both from Paper mill Direct. I mounted the image onto red card and added lots of glamour dust.
The sentiment is from Craft work cards, which I have had in my stash since last Christmas, they are handy to have and I bought loads when they were in the sale last year.

I also made this using Green card instead of Red and the picture is below

This is the same image made using green card and I have added a little snowflake.

more christmas cards

Good morning to everyone, Sorry for not posting for a while but I have been away visiting christmas markets in Belgium.
We had planned to go to Belgium on a P & O mini cruise and booked over 12 months ago, and then last Wed  4 days before we were due to sale they canceled!! we were all so disappointed so decided to book our own.
I managed to book a lovely hotel in Oustend and we took the car over on the ferry Dover to Dunkirk, and drove the short distance into Belgium, the used public transport which was brilliant to get us all to Bruges and Ghents christmas markets.  I bought loads of lovely chocolates back!
Anyway enough of my hols back to these 2 cards. 
They are both made from  digi kits available from the clip art fairy  I love these kits as they are so versatile, and you can make them as detailed as you like. 
I have added some glamour dust and the sentiments are from Craftwork cards.

Thank you for looking and hopefully I will be back to colouring after the Christmas signature

Good morning to you all.  Can not believe that I have not posted for over a week.......

I have been working nights this last week and I just seem to either be working or sleeping, and when I am up later in the day I don't have any motivation to craft.  

The 3 cards below have been made using up odds and ends of paper from my stash, and the ready coloured toppers I bought last year from LOV. (they have not had them this year unfortunately)  They came in a variety of sizes on A4 sheets and these are all 6cm squares.  I just added some glamour dust for sparkle, and a sentiment from Craftwork cards.  So quick and easy!!

Many thanks for looking and I will be back soon
