Still xmas

Well 2 days till xmas and Im still making xmas cards lol, when will it end.
Well suppose I cant complain, keeping me busy and no time to think about how
much we are missing hubby and an other xmas without him,  They did get another
mail drop today so at least he has all his pressies now.

This is an 8x8 christmas card with lots of gold.
The Deco lady is a Kanban topper mounted on red and gold card.
The scrolls are sizzix dies. A martha stewart punch on the corners.  The snow flakes are peel offs lol, which I usually hate lol.  A few gems and lots of glamour dust.

Quick and easy christmas card with the carol singers from the clip art fairy

Forever friends challenge

This card I did for a couple who had just become an Aunt and Uncle for the first time.
The image is from my FF triple cd which I use constantly, the image is so cute. Once again it is done onto the plaque from the clip art fairy plaque from the easel & Plaque cd.  I also love the ribbon which is wire edged and sits just perfect on the card all plumped up.
Lots of glamour dust and thats it done. Donna x

More Christmas

I totally love this little lady

so  much I used it several times lol
This is a couple of graphics I bought from the the clip art fairy
I had several little girls to make for and I think its totally timeless and ageless and can be used in so many different ways, the background is off the barely pink range where you can also get this little lady.
I added a few pearls, copied the image a few times, decoupaged and lots and lots of glamour dust.
Sorry about the rubbish photos, rubbish lighting but the cards look totally different in real life lol. Hope you like them Donna x x

First Christmas

This is a first Christmas card, as if you couldnt guess lol.  There is quite a mixture here.  The body of the card is from the clip art fairy, the easel cards cd, which is great, use it for tons of things.  The cute snowman is a nit wit decoupage sheet as is the snowflake.  Next up is the decorations which mainly come from my other favourite thing just now, my forever friends cd.   A few gems and lots and lots of glamour dust and thats it x  Still snowed in but will have to make a break for freedom shortly as Im running out of some urgent supplies, not food, lol, envelopes!!!!!    Well thats it once again, something else tomorrow, Im off to bed x Donna x

christmas starts here

Well the tree went up today, its -15 outside and I couldnt get in the car (doors frozen) let alone go anywhere lol, you would think we had never had snow before.  Youngest son is on second week off school as the whole of the regions schools have been closed since last monday. Which means had a bit of extra time to go guns blazing at the christmas cards.  Sorry about the poo quality of pics, rubbish light.

This card is made up of a mix, a beautiful snow flake feebie from Jak at crafters kitchen and once again my favourite graphics at the mo, from The clip art fairy Wendys sight is just amazing, I love it lol.  The purple skater girl suits so many and the wave is from her wavy edge set, there great, I have just bought a few new things and the prices are great.
Well thats it for now, its getting late, but have lots more to show you later x

This is a card I did for a blessing, I did a similar one months ago and a FB friend saw a photo
of it and asked if I could do a blessing one for her and send it down south.
I used Martha Stewart punch and nesties. It is an easel card 10 x 10. Lots of gold and cream
which I think makes it quite timeless and elegant

Lots of good things happening

Well, tonights the night, our forum moves home for the last time hopefully, and I cant wait
to see the new place, the ladies sorting it do such a great job at organising us all Im just sooo excited and cant wait lol.
Tomorrow is SECC day as well, up at the crack of dawn, lol well it is for a sunday and off to Glasgow
with little sis, poor her, she doesnt craft but she's like a magpie anyway and loves all the stuff lol so she is happy and doesnt mind me trailing her round.  She also knows what she likes and usually tells me.
This will be my first christmas at glasgow so totally cant wait, the spring one is good but every one says the christmas one is amazing lol, not sure hubby will agree when the bank statement comes in though.
Well better finish with a card, this was a card for a friend of my sister, her friend was turning 60 and they always go on about how she is older than them and she likes a drink lol
I really struggled with this card, had totally no ideas but like everything when your backed in a corner with very little time left you come up with something and in the end I really loved it.
The image was from one off the lovely ladies on the forum and I printed it a few times, decoupaged it.
Gold border, jan, mounted on pads, lots of gems, stickles, glamour dust and glossy accents in her glasses for lenses. Cheeky verse and all done
