Lets Be Merry

Another PB for you today.. they have always been a favourite but i think this Owl is an all time!

I did a little ink blending in the back ground with distress oxides and cut out the peekaboo window from MTF.  The owl is fussy cut and a small sentiment added

Love this card...  Hope you are all getting into the festive swing of things

Most WonderfulDeer

Hello.. I have another Christmas card for you today using more of the little die cut deer from the Tim Holtz set!

I think I have become a little obsessed with Ink Smooshing with Distress Oxides.. really love the effect they give!.  This back ground was actually left over from the PB one so thought I would make it into a quick card!

Have a lovely day!

Winter Cheer

Morning, a really quick Christmas card for you today using some of this years Penny Black Christmas stamps... I love this little skating mouse!

Simply coloured in with some copics, bit of glitter and mounted on some Pool Party card stock.  Sentiment is also from a Penny Black Stamp set!

Today is D day for me as I finally have an operation on my nose so I can breathe again.  Its been a hectic 6 months planning time to have off and i'm not really looking forward to the pain and black eyes that will result from it. The bonus is I have 4 weeks off to recover and hopefully relax!

wish me a speedy recovery!

Reindeer Agenda

Morning all... boy it's cold compared to Singapore. I suppose I have 5 weeks to get used to it before my trip to the states!

I created a simple card using the Reindeer agenda from Mama Elephant..  I really love the flexibility of these sets!

I simply lined them up on the misti and stamped them, colouring in copic markers.  The sentiment is from LOTV and its finished off with some twine!

Hope you have a great Sunday!

Meowy Christmas

I'm back again... determined to share all the Christmas cards I made prior to the big day!

I spent ages trying to get hold of this Inkidinkidoo stamp after I saw someone use it last year... Finally picked it up off eBay. It was smaller than I had thought but I really love it!

I finished off the card with a simple sentiment made with the label maker and some scribbles!

Hope you have a great Saturday... I'm home now so will finally get the Christmas tree up!

Snowy Hillside

Morning... today's card uses a fabulous die I picked up from Tim Holtz a few weeks ago.  Its a great set that also comes with a fabulous snowy back ground.

I used the SSS snowy stencil for the back ground instead on this example as I wanted a night sky.

Dies: Tim Holtz Winder Wonderland Dies
Stamps: Uniko Sentiment
Other: SSS Snowfall Stencil

I really need to start writing down what I use since I stopped using inlinkz when it changed. I have no idea what the snow slope is from !

Hope you have a lovely Wednesday.. I'm travelling back from Singapore today..

Polar Bear & Mousie

Morning... I had some time at weekend to finally type up some posts from cards I made back in September & October. I have a load to share with you over the next few weeks.

I have become really lazy with the whole blogging thing and even though I am enjoying the card making when I get time, making time to edit photos and write up posts just seems non existent! Maybe I need to try Instagram and Facebook more as quick ways to share!

This little guy is just the cutest.....

Stamp: Polar & Mousie from Stampin Bella, Sentiment from Uniko

I'll be back soon with another Christmas make... Have a great day..
