For Mum

Hi Everyone,
Well it's almost time for Santa to come! I hope you are all ready ? Today I would like to share with you a card that I have made for my Mum & Sister.
They have both supported me right from the very beginning when I first made a very simple little card, I started off in papercraft by scrapbooking and I soon found that I had heaps of smaller pieces of paper that I didn't know what to do with ....... So I made a little card , no image just sentiments and they both thought how great it was, I never even knew that there was a whole world out there of Blogging and images and all the wonderful people that will help you along the way. I am so lucky that I looked into this world and have made so many great friends.
I just wanted to let my family know how much it means to me to have there support along this journey, so I have made them this thank you card.
When I saw the Challenge at MDUC this time all of a sudden I knew what I wanted to do. The challenge is a colour combo of Red , Cream and Gold, I don't know about you but sometimes when I see the challenges I struggle to come up with ideas, but not this time.
A close up of the image , I have used copic markers and prisma pencils to colour.
Here I have used Fleur De Lis Square die and gold embossing powder , I think this turned out really well , it looks a bit like old iron work to me.
The gorgeous flowers and branch with the gold embossing.

A Christmas Sheep!

Hi Everyone,
Today I have one of those last minute Christmas cards featuring a CC Designs image called Ornament Ewe and I purchased him as a digi image.
Isn't he the cutest thing lol, I love his eyes, they make me smile everytime I look at him. I coloured him with copic's and prisma pencils ( and forgot to write them down , I don't know what I was thinking . I am going to put it down to the silly season, too many things to think about ) The CS is Bazzill Pomegranate , the DP is Memory Box - Mistletoe and I used spellbinder Fleur De Lis Square, sentiment is computer generated.
Here is a close up , I have used frosted lace stickles on his fur and ornament and around the white edge , sorry you can't see it in the photo very well. The little silver and white trim is from my stash.
This is the inside , to match the front , this sentiment comes from Sentiments 4 you and is also digi.

A Baby Girl

Hi Everyone,
Well it has rained here almost all weekend , sooooo what to do? craft of course hehehe. I received my order from LOTV this week and thought I would have a go at the challenge of Pink , White & Silver I have used Special Delivery from there latest release.
As soon as I saw this image I loved it, and the sentiment comes with it, I love it when that happens lol.  But then again I loved all the baby images in this release, and they are all on my wish list lol. The silver CS is like a brushed metal , very pretty irl, didn't show up so well in the photo though. The lace , pearls and DP are all from Kaisercraft , the DP is called Bundle of Joy , how appropriate!
The image is cut out with  my new die from Nellie Snellen Multi Frames and the Border is from Cheery Lynn Dies  which I purchased from Bizzy Bec's Online Store . The scalloped circle is from Spellbinders. 
The edges have been inked with Memento Angel Pink, and the little bib is from my stash.
I have done the inside to match the front , and just added "congratulations" .
Here is a close up of the cuteness ! I coloured the image with copic's only this time, to give it the softer baby look, I used R0000, R81, N2, C00, E50, E51 , E53.

Christmas Challenge at Bizzy Bec's

Hi Everyone,
Well this Challenge couldn't be easier, cause I bet you all have been working flat out on your Chrissy cards., right! Yes the theme for our new challenge is Christmas at Bizzy Bec's store blog , I have created a Christmas scene to share with you.
I have used 2 Magnolia  stamps from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection Something for you Tilda and Welcome to a Sweet Xmas, I think she looks like she is just arriving to give her gift to someone special. 
I have used copic's and prisma pencils as I always do to colour, and I stamped Tilda first then masked her to put the background in, a little extra work but well worth it I think ! What do you think ?  The DP is also from Magnolia. The sentiment is computer generated and I cut it out with spellbinder die and used a fancy tag with foam dots. The flowers and corners are from WOC and the ribbon is from the bargin buy shop.
Bec will have more Magnolia stamps in when the new release comes out, so keep your eye's peeled for that because Bec always has them at fantastic prices, but while you are waiting for that release check out  
Bizzy Bec's for the huge range of other stamps, embellishments, cutting dies and lots more.
I have added another Tilda on the inside front of my card she is Unwrapped Tilda from the So Jolly / Under the Mistletoe Collection, the die under the ribbon is also from Magnolia and the other die is Fleur De Lis Pendants from spellbinders and labels three to cut out the image.

So I hope you can join us with our Christmas theme this time at Bizzy Bec's store blog Challenge jump over there now and check out the gorgeous creations the other DT girls have prepared for you, there is some fabulous inspiration !

Also don't forget to enter my Embellishment Candy HERE it's open to everyone, so enter now and you may be the lucky one!!!

Sorry I havn't got the colours used on this card, but another result from the great coffee spill the other day, if you follow my blog regularly you will know that I knocked over a cup of coffee on my craft desk and well you can guess the rest , bit of a disaster lol. But it has made me be a lot  more careful hehehe. 
Have a great week everyone.

Big Hugs Cheryl
