Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well and had a good week.  I do like this week in between Christmas as it gives me a chance to relax and do just what I please.  The days do fly by though even when you're not doing a lot! 

I thought I would share this card today which is an image from Colour of Love called Cosmos Fairy.

I have coloured her with copics and simply mounted onto black card with papers to match.  The sentiment is from LOTV.  

I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I have pulled out all my stamps which I have bought and never used and put them into a box on their own, so I'm going to see how much that goes down by the end of 2022.

Morning Everyone,

I hope you have all had a good Christmas.  A very quiet one here, apart from Christmas Eve, when we had the family round, but it's been nice to relax after the build up.

This is the card I've made for the Grand Prize Draw at Pixie's Snippets Playground.  It is a die from Simon Says Stamp called Brilliant Gifts.  I die cut the surround with gold mirri card and cut the individual presents with snippets from a Doodlebug Christmas pad. 

 I do love these pads for their small patterns and would like to buy more when I've used some of my paper mountain. I did have a bit of a sort out before Christmas and gave quite a bit I knew I wouldn't use to the local school.

The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and I've added some gems too.

 Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme is "Make a Scene".

For my card I have used the cute reindeer from the Let's Prance set by Clearly Besotted.  I drew round a hilly die with a pencil and then stamped the two reindeer in place.  I coloured them with copics and also the sky.  The trees, from the same set, were stamped in green and I've added a white highlighter pen here and there to make them look snowy.

After that I rubbed out my pencil marks for the hills and also coloured them with copics and added white glitter.  I've used a Simon Says stencil with texture paste for the snow and stamped the sentiment, also from the set.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here, you will be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the reminder team.

Morning Folks,

I hope you're keeping well and not too busy with Christmas preparations.  It's our last challenge at As You Like It for this year and we are asking which is your favourite Christmas sentiment?

I do like good old Merry Christmas and this one, which is from the Ornate Ornaments set from Simon Says Stamp always works really well when heat embossing.  I have heat embossed the ornaments in gold and coloured them with Tambai Starry Colours, which are varying shades of gold. The paints are quite shiny irl and I have taken a close up for you to get a better idea.

I fussy cut them and attached to a cream piece of card which had been cut out with a stitched rectangle and added gold twine.

 Good Morning Everyone,

It is the start of a new challenge at The Cutie Pie Challenge and we would like to see a "Cute and Cuddly Christmas" project.

The sponsor of the challenge Hetty Clare has kindly provided the DT with images and I chose to use the Pony Christmas image.  I have coloured this cutie with copics and used papers and sentiment from LOTV.  Liquid pearls and white glitter have also been added.

This was a pretty quick and last minute make for me as I have been busy with all the preparations for Christmas.  We put our trees up over the weekend (one in lounge and one in dining room) and all the other little bits and pieces that go round the house.  I still have some wrapping to do, but at least I have all the present shopping done.

 Morning Everyone,

It's just started to snow here this morning.  Lovely to look at, but hopefully it won't stay too long as I'm going out later.

It is time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and we are asking what your favourite Christmas embellishment is on your projects.  Mine is glitter or anything sparkly.  Christmas is the beast reason to add sparkle to a card.

I have used white glitter on my snow, although it doesn't show very well on the photo.  It is a cute Stamping Bella image coloured with copics.  I have also added a white gel pen for the dots on the scarf and liquid pearls for the snow in the sky.  The sentiment is 3 separate words from a Creative Expressions set.
