I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:





The card has  been made from one sheet of 12" x 12" paper from my stash and folded as per the instructions above.  The edges of the paper have been distressed and lace trim and ribbon have been added to the pockets.  The lovely image from Saturated Canary has been coloured mostly using FlexMarker pens, which I am loving more and more and detail has been added with  ProMarker pens.  Various cutting dies have been used to include Spellbinders for cutting image and spotted rose decoration and leaves.  Frosty border from Memory Box, flourishes from Die-namics, small tag from Magnolia Do Hickey Dies and snowflakes from Marianne Designs Creatables.

The large tag has several die cuts and a stamped panel from Butterfly Kisses.  Other flowers and embellishments are from my stash.

Frosty the Snowman

Happy Sunday to all.  Today's card from me features the fun Frosty image from Butterfly Kisses.  



I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:





This lovely clear stamp has been coloured using ProMarker pens and glittered.  The image is fun as it contains a back and a front and I have mounted this onto the front of the card using lovely blue fine metal wire.  I have used lots of die cuts and glitter card to make the decorations for the card I am very attached to my new Memory Box dies at present.  The other dies are Spellbinders and Marianne Design snowflakes.  The backing paper is Swell Noel Winter Wonderland from K & Company and glitter card from my stash.  The Happy Christmas and Snowman Ribbon labels are from Crafty Ribbons and the gold thread decorated ribbon I have had in my stash for a while.  Happy Christmas foiled label from Craftwork Cards mounted on a glitter die cut star.  I have also used lots of glitter Stickles.




Showing the inside of the card featuring the back of  Frosty.  Similar die cuts have been used inside the card and I have made a little circular pocket to hold another double sided snowman image which can be used to record a Christmas greeting.  There are some paper mania labels on the inside of the card. 


Showing Frosty out of his pocket.  I have enjoyed making this card.  I usually have no idea what I am going to do when I start to make a card and they grow round the image and more ideas develop.  I find this lots of fun and hope you like the end results.  Thank you for reading this post. 

Sending Warmest Wishes to all.

Christmas Friends

Happy Saturday to all.  Its been another really busy week for me with very little time for craft.  I have managed to make a couple of cards using Lili of the Valley - Little squares.  I have quite a collection of these and I love them.


Showing the front of the bear card.  The image has been glittered and I have used a snow marker pen to decorate.  There are various die cuts on the front of the card and some of these have been decorated using lovely silver glitter and red Stickles glitter.  The greeting topper is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon from Craft Ribbons.  The little silver stars are from my stash as is the silver mirror card.



The inside of the card is shown above.  I have used a similar image and die cuts and have provided a blank tag for recording of a greeting.  The papers are all good quality and come from my stash. 




A closer view of the front of the card showing detail of image and some decoration.  My camera is not so good on close up shots and the picture is a bit fuzzy.

Christmas Bunnies


My second card today features another little square from Lili of the Valley - Christmas Bunnies and is ultra cute.   The die cuts are made using gold mirror card and I have decorated the edges of the image etc with Christmas Candy from Craftwork Cards.  Other die cuts, ribbon and flowers have been used.
