Candy Win

What a great start to the day, just found out I have won some gorgeous Stamping Up papers from the fabulous and oh so generous Stephanie

I am off work on Tuesdays and this is the first Tuesday I have had on my own since the end of June. My son went back to University last Wednesday, so I am going to make the most of it and try and get some Christmas cards made.

Christine's Birthday

I have made this card for a lady I work with. I have used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and have used the challenge at Just Magnolia which this week is a colour challenge to use the colours pink and grey with an option of black. Oh just noticed the One Stop Craft Challenge is to use die cuts, so my Nesties should be okay for this challenge.

I have used 'Ice Princess Tilda' coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from The Exquisite Paper Collection by Papermania. Sentiment from a See D set. Flowers I received in a swap and little flower sequins I got yesterday at Dunelm Mill. Didn't know they sold craft stuff there but got some of the Bloom and Grow 6 x 6 papers for £2.62 and a Christmas paper pad for £2.99.

New Home Card

My sister and her husband moved down to Cirencester on Thursday, along with their dog Fudge and the two cats Solo and Yoda. We will really miss them especially Fudge (that sounds awful doesn't it) but we see more of Fudge as we look after her while Dawn and Freddy are away and my daughter regularly walks her as we only live across the park from her.

The challenge this week on Just Magnolia is EMBOSSING so I dragged out my old light box which hadn't seen the light of day for over a year and my brass stencils to emboss the wording and the little flowers.
The image is Tilda with wine and basket coloured with Promarkers.
Backing paper is from Basic Grey
Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch
Nestabilities Label
Brass stencil and Lightbox
Flowers from stash
Sewing Prolectrix sewing machine - not very straight but I will get better with practice.

Just Magnolia Challenge

The challenge at Just Magnolia this week is a fab sketch designed by Mina. I have used this lovely image of Tilda coloured with Promarkers. It is a bit brighter than I would normally do but the lady that this is for is a very jolly, larger than life person who always dresses in bright colours so I think she will like it.

Dinosaur Card

I had to make this card in a hurry on Thursday night. It is for one of the GPs I work with, it's his birthday on Sunday so had to get it done so I could take it in work Friday. He is a lovely man and we all call him the 'old fossil' because he is the oldest person at work so thought this image would be suitable. Hope he doesn't mind (don't think he will).

Image coloured with Promarkers, Papermania Collossal Paper Pack For Him, Sentiment Claire Curd.
