Only a little snowy unfortunately but the patterned paper does have snowflakes on.
Image: Tilda with hood, coloured with ProMarkers, gel pen and stickles. The background is DCWV (I think). The trees were part of a RAK from a stamping buddy, which I've added stickles to for tinsel (looks much better IRL). Sentiment is also from Magnolia. All backed onto red bazzill. Quite simple but I think I like it!
Thanks for looking.
First there's Denise, who's started her own stamp company and the first three designs are goooooooooooorgeous! Check them out here
Secondly Debbie is having the most amazing blog candy giveaway on her blog to celebrate 10,000 hits. I'm a regular visitor to Debbie's blog and I have to say everything she makes is fab!! Be sure to check out the heart wreath she posted today.

This is my favourite Christmas card to date. I went right out of my comfort zone with the tearing of paper....but I love it! This sentiment stamp goes brilliantly with the image. Went a bit mad with my olive ink pad too....! For some reason the sticky ribbon looks wonky in the picture but not in real life - not sure why, perhaps my picture taking skills, or lack of.

This week at Magnolia v Stampavie (only the 2nd week of the new combined challenges!), the theme is 'Keep it simple', nice clean lines and no more than 3 colours to be used.
I hope my card below qualifies!! Its certainly simple and I've stuck to 3 colours (red, brown and green.....although I've used several different shades of them).
I can't believe I've actually managed to capture the sparkle round her hood!
Image: Tilda with hood, coloured with Promarkers, gel pen and stickles, mounted onto green bazzill and inked with a gold ink pad. The paper is from a Crafters Christmas Resource book I bought. Then added a sticky ribbon and stamped a starry snowflake border in green. Finally added three buttons from my Woodware 'coffee and cream' pack.
Thanks for looking

Image - Tilda, coloured with Promarkers and gel pen. The ground under her feet is stardust pen and crystal lacquer - doesn't show so well in the picture. The papers are from a DCWV stack, I think! Merry Christmas is a diecut given to me by a friend. There's also a piece of snowflake embossed card, which I've covered in stickles for extra sparkle!! Added some sticky ribbon (which is also sparkly) and some adhesive gems to finish.
Thanks for looking!

But in the meantime, here's another Christmas card I made:
The images are Penny Black stickeroos, with Papermania adhesive gems in the middle, mounted on to silver cs. Then a sparkly adhesive ribbon (Dovecraft I think!) and a Merry Christmas peel off. Very simple really.
Thanks for looking!

This one was nice and simple to make.
It was made like this - cut an A6 black card blank in half. I can't remember where the packing paper is from....possibly a DCWV pack, I inked the edges of it with a white ink pad and trimmed one end with my fancy scissors. The image is a Penny Black stickeroo. Topped off with a sparkly ribbon (Dovecraft I think!) and some Papermania adhesive gems.
Thanks for looking!

Anyway here's the first one:
The peel off was one sent to me by a friend, stuck on acetate and coloured with peel off markers. Then I just used my Penny Black sentiment stamp. The stamped sentiment started to bleed a little so I went round the edges with my silver gel pen, I quite like the effect.
Minimalist but I'm happy with it.
Thanks for looking!

The only thing is I keep wanting to add a sentiment somewhere but I can't decide where! Suggestions...??
I used 'Pink Tilda Ice/Ballet Princess' and 'Pink Ballet Slippers', coloured with ProMarkers and gel pens. I chalked the edges of Tilda and matted her onto pink bazzill, then used a strip of leftover K&Co sparkly sweet paper, purple bazzill, then the little squares are 1" of the same pink bazzill with a big pink button and some Papermania adhesive gems.
Thanks for looking!

My new Magnolias arrived yesterday from their new 'Pink Collection', I ordered three 'people' and one accesory, and I made some cards with them today so I will be showcasing them in the next few days.
Here's the first, 'Pink Tilda with rose'.
Isn't she gorgeous??! I'm really pleased with how my colouring came out but unsure of the card overall. Anyway this is also my entry to Cute Card Thursday, which was the fab theme of 'Buttons and Bows'. I know its an age til Mothers Day but everytime I look at this image I picture her peeking up at her mummy with a rose in her hand!!

Mounted onto bazzill CS, cuttlebug 'swiss' dots folder also mounted on bazzill. Die cut border

Anyway I spent last night, taking my mind off the big issue at hand, by making individual thank you cards for all the staff. Thankfully its a small nursery so only 10 staff, but here's my cards:
All the staff have been so brilliant and my son loves them dearly, I know he will miss the staff and kids so much.
