Today's Christmas cards are for the older nieces and nephews.
The image is digi image (glad I still believe), coloured with promarkers and a bit of glitter for the girls.
It's a nice feeling to know you've finished your chrissy cards as well....lol
If I could put a big smiley face here I would.
Thanks for your visit, it is much appreciated.

I'm sharing something new and different for me it's a couple of mixed media projects I attempted with a craft group I attend. I've made a few of these but have never managed to finish them but these were finished and I really like how they turned out.
The first was a sort of flat canvas and the second was an A5 book.
As always thanks for your visit..

Doing well with my Christmas cards, which is good really as I still have birthday ones to fit in as well.
These were made using a Clarity Stencil, Hobby House Stamps and a stampendous stamp ( I think) also my beloved distress inks...lol and it wouldn't be Christmas without the glitter!
Lis, don't look one will be winging it's way to you very soon....lol
As always thanks for your visit.

I'm on catch up at the moment after a week away with my lovely sisters in Rhodes. The weather wasn't brilliant we had some terrible rain but when the sun shone it was red hot.
So onto some more Christmas cards, these are for the younger girls in the family and the papers, image and designs were from a Christmas mag.
Thanks as always for your visit, it is much appreciated.

I 'm just sharing my first christmas card of 2015, it's for my MIL.
I got the inspiration from this lovely blog here.
It's using the free die from Crafter's Companion mag and a Poppystamps Die that I've had for ages and never used (if I knew how to insert an embarrassed face I would) and found that I really liked the die after I'd put it together. I've glittered around the edges just to add a little sparkle...
it is a Christmas card after all...lol
Thank you for your visit, I really do appreciate...

I thought I better get this post done before our internet goes down again,
it's been on and off all week,a real pain....
So I was making this card for a lady whose party we are attending on Friday but my husband and his big mouth...lol suggested I make the husbands card for his wife, not giving me much time as usual (as I've said many times before I don't make quick cards) so I had to adapt my card to suit and use a card from my stash for us to give.
.... not very happy about it.
The recipe is spellbinders dies and a new purchase, Botanical Rose and Classic Leaf from Heartfelt Creations. I will definitely need to get the die to match the classic leaf as it was a pain to cut by hand.
As always thanks so much for your visit.....

My card for today is for my lovely niece Romy who will be 21 on the 3rd October. I just love this presscut die for the shutter card and it worked really well with the photographs....not sure how happy she will be with the photo's...lol
The middle one is her dad's (my brother) favorite.
As always many thanks for your visit and any comments you may leave.

Still naff weather I see, I think we have had our summer but I suppose it let's us craft and the weeds grow...lol
This weeks card has no recipient at the moment, I used Chloe's' Butterfly stamp again, with distress inks and glitter, added some ribbon and a few gems.
As always thanks for your visit......

What's happening with the weather.... my brother had a BBQ on Saturday to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary(forgot to take a photo of the card) and my nieces 21st (not till October but she will be back at uni by then), the weather was beautiful till late afternoon when the heaven's opened luckily we had eaten by then and had to take cover....typical british BBQ..lol
Onto my card which was for my husband's aunt, I have made a similar one but on a square card and thought this worked well with the oval.
As always thanks for your visit, it is always much appreciated.

Hope everyone is well, today cards is using Chloe's butterfly stamp again. Stamped on to acetate (again) and this time I used shabby pink embossing enamel. The flowers are delicate aster by Spellbinders and the greeting is Stampin Up.
Not got a recipient for it yet.
As always thanks for your visit.

It was a cracking weekend wasn't it, hubby went wild camping so I was left to my own devices......wonder what I did....lol
I've never successfully managed to make shutter or stepper cards before especially when having to make them from scratch, I've never been happy with the cuts and folds.
I've seen the tattered lace one on telly and liked it but wasn't prepared to part with fifty quid ( I know there are a few dies in the set) so imagine my delight while visiting my local craft stall to find this press cut one (never heard of them before), not as many dies but it was enough for me and I'll certainly be adding some more of them .
So I had a play and created this card for a friend at work whose birthday is Tuesday (we get cakes as well...lol) and I have a few more on the go.
Well thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it.....

Hello again, hope you are all well.
What's up with the weather, this time last week we were tempted to put the heating on at work and this week it's been a bit hot.
So on to this weeks card, I've used a chloe stamp for the butterflies and then stamped onto acetate and cut the butterflies out,the flower stamp is a Sheena Douglas with a bit of glitter.
Not sure of the recipient yet, my niece will be 21 in October and she likes purple so I may add 21 and us it....we'll see.
Thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it.
