My Bairn' Cards

I finally had time to make cards for my kiddywinks. In the hope that I wouldn't be last minute for these, I'd coloured the images at the end of November/beginning of December .....that worked well, huh!?!

Louise's uses the beautiful Stockings from Saturated Canary. Louise loves her onesies, hence the choice if image. And her hair has been cut shorter too!

Euan's uses Sugar Nellie's My Friend Flakey. I chose this image as Euan has a red Pom Pom hat like the boy in the image. And I used my new pearl pen for some snow.

For both cads, I've used my promarkers to colour and the lovely Dovecraft Back to Basics Modern Christmas papers. Used Kraft card blanks too, which I'm loving! Wasn't sure what Lou would make of the Kraft but she lived it and thought it made the bright papers stand out better! And Euan loved his card too. Phew!!

Have a wonderful Christmas, peeps....I hope Santa is good to you all! x

Dream Valley - Christmas

My, I'm a bit late with this.....time has slipped away into another realm and I got a little mixed up!  But my lovely team mates have provided lots of lovely Christmas samples for the super easy Christmas theme for this month.  And we have 3 sponsors for this challenge!!

I had lots of cards and even some floral decorations I could share, but I have decided to share this card that I made for my mam and dad.  I have woven some scrap paper strips, matted onto red paper, added some ribbbon and a bow, sequins, beads and some beautiful gold leaves and a rose from Hobbycraft.  I really loved making this card and I'm sure my mam will love the rose and design, even though I've mounted it onto a Kraft card and mam doesn't like browns!!  (But it looked right, and more modern on the Kraft rather than white card.....!)

I would also like to enter this card into the Anything Goes Challenge - Traditional Christmas Colours

A Sugar Bowl Entry!

Finally, I am blogging one of the many cards I have been making! This card uses the gorgeously cute SugarNellie Warm Winter Wishes, coloured with my polychromo pencils, Stardust Stickles and Picket Fence Distress Stickles. I just know that this is going to be one of my top Christmas images this year!!

The papers are my new Dovecraft basics, which I love.....the colours are fab!

I'll decide on the sentiment soon but decided to blog while I have half a chance!!

I'm trying BlogPress from my phone, so there are no links at the mo......maybe it is possible but my sleepy brain can't work out how yet! Maybe next time. Will add the links for my challenges tomorrow:
SugarBowl Blog - sketch and Winters Tale theme
SugarNellie Facebook challenge - Glitter

Ok, so here it goes.....will it work?!
