Winter Animals!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and having a good weekend.

It's the Christmas Card Club weekend and it's been Elizabeth's turn to choose a theme and it's Winter Animals.

I startedk with a lovely tree stencil from Angie's Happy Hobby, inked with DI. Scene built up with Card-io stamps from various sets. Words in the background is The Spirit of Christmas from Lavinia Stamps, background inks Elements also from Lavinia Stamps. Sickles and Glitter.

Thank you, Elizabeth, for the challenge, I really enjoyed it, even although it was my second attempt as I duffed it up when I was putting in the background words, so had to start again. Got there in the end thankfully, though rather later than planned.

Do have a look at what the other girls from the CCC create, always fabulous cards.

That's all from me for now, enjoy your evening,

Just for You!

 Hello Everyone, I hope all's well with you and you are enjoying your weekend. Mine has been filled with shopping, I hate it, any kind of shopping now, I've seen the day when I could spend all day going round the shops.

I did however bump into my friend Fiona in Boots whilst I was browsing for Christmas gift idea, and she was looking so good, hard to believe what she's going through. With her chemo behind her, she starts on radiotherapy next week. It was so good to see her, and like me she was browsing.

Here's today's card,

Everything from Lavinia Stamps. Elements Ink, Open Dandelions stamp, Sentiments and stencil.

And with its envelope.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post.

That's all from me today, just a quick pop in, take care of yourselves,

A planter of Blooms!

Hello, I hope you are all well and have had a good day. A beautiful day here, sunshine, but cool, very cold now though.

Alistair took himself off down to the Cairngorms for a walk and had a lovely day, I got on with some household chores. 

I have a coloured picture tonight,

A page from my Johanna Basford diary, coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils, and little bits of glitter. A Gina K stencil in the background.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my last card, I very much appreciate them.

I've got to go into town tomorrow for my third covid injection and flu jab. Hoping it all goes well and no nasty side effects.

Anyhoo, enjoy your evening and take care, see you soon,

The Friends Christmas Concert!

 Hello Everyone, apologies for not being in Blogland for a wee while, just felt I needed to have a break from it.

Anyhoo, I do hope you are all well and enjoying life. 

I have a Christmas card for you this evening,

The musical tree is a Sweet Poppy stamp, and all the other stamps are from Card-io, the sentiment is from the tree set.

Lavinia Elements Ink, blue mirror card, splatters and gel pens.

I made a huge blunder when trying to stamp the hare, trying to correct it was a bit of a hit and miss. I inked it up on the wrong side and was left with a huge black blob, gesso painted over it and then some olive elements ink, it's still noticeable, but did the best I could.  

Thank you all for the lovely comments you leave, cheerio for now, take care

Use Dies for the CCC!

 Hello Everyone, hoping you are all well and having a good weekend.

October!!! Amazing, where has the year gone, won't be long until we will be using all these Christmas cards we're making, anyhoo here is my latest card for the Christmas Card Club and this time it's Sylvie who has chosen the theme of using dies.


Now I don't get along well with dies but tried my best with this little snowman from Carnations Crafts, the tree is also from them, but cut out by hand. To make a little scene I added stamps from Card-io. Inkylicious sentiment. Lots of glitter and gel pen. The mats are also from Carnation Crafts.

Thank you, Sylvie, I ended up enjoying the challenge and had fun making the card, I do love this little snowman, he's so cute.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my previous card.

That's me for now, scheduling this for the CCC post which goes live tomorrow, Sunday.

Remember to have a look at the other CCC girl's cards, they are always worth a look, till next time,
