Another quick card.

I made this using Tim Holtz  Christmas Time Collection... love em as if you haven't guessed :o)
The Image is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, Santa is coloured with a red Copic marker,  Rudolf is painted with DI Frayed Burlap, swooshed onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water. I used Stickles Icicle  on Santa's suit and Rock Candy Distress Stickles for his beard. Rudolph has a Christmas Red Stickles nose!
Hasn't Rudolf got the loveliest face and Santa is having so much fun as I hope you all do this Christmas
 This will be my last post (I think) until the New Year.
I would like to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas 
and a peaceful, healthy 2013.

 This card is entered into adult section of the
Money Supermarket Christmas Card Competition
Good luck to all who entered

Quickest ever!

The quickest card I ever made ... I love it!
My  TH Christmas Time  stamps arrived yesterday, don't know why I waited so long before I bought em... too late for most of my cards now, so I just had to play. All the materials I used were lying around on my worktop... you know how tidy I am .... not!
The Merry Christmas that comes in the set would work better but hey ho... next time. I'd do it now but I'm about to leave for Manchester Christmas market with girl friends.
 Ive entered this into Hels Sunday Stamper. which this week is Holly!
Enjoy your day

Last MMM challenge for 2012

and this week it's a
 BINGO Christmas Card Challenge

 I used the diagonal line from left to right, dry embossing, flowers and distressing.
 I have a red face now because I made a big boob and forgot to add the distressed element. I was supposed to distress around the aperture. I was hoping to be able to make another but I  didn't have time 

Spellbinders M-Bossabilities EL-013 with the non embossed area removed with a craft knife.
Stampendous Cling Manger stamp
Stazon Hydrangea Blue for the Manger image
Sentiment from U-Mount Holly Stamp set. SU label punch
DI: Stormy sky
Small holly leaf punch
 Heat it Up Snow Flake Tinsel EP
Deco Art Glamour Dust
 Flower from stash... I bought about three of these little flowers from the local market... wish I'd bought more!
 Dark blue A5  base card
White stamping card.

 This is the last MMM challenge for 2012.. we are having a couple of weeks off and then back in January 2013!
  I do hope you join in the fun next year I look forward to seeing you
Have a very Happy Christmas and a may 2013 be wonderful!

White on white Mid Week Motivation at MMM

Hi everyone it's my turn to do the  mid week motivation at Make My Monday I thought I'd share a card that's quick and easy to make because at this time of year time is precious.
 So these cards have no stamping, no cutting out and no colourring etc.

  Two variations an A5 card  and a 6"x6" square card. I used my Cuttlebug, small and large snowflake punches... quicker than using dies, (I think) Martha Stewart edge punch. oops forgot there is a bit of stamping.... the sentiment is from  IndigoBlu stamped in Versafine Smokey Grey, a few gems, a snowflake charm with some silver cord... Actually the cord gave me my biggest problem I couldn't get it to stay where I wanted it to be and as for the bow!! if any you have this mastered perhaps you could let me know how to do it...  :o)

The embossed card is raised slightly from the base card, the snowflake is fixed flatter than I would've like but I was baring in mind postage. The snowflake can be brought forward from the base card once its reached it's destination..Mind you not sure though that it's a good idea to send cards with instructions! tee hee

  Hope you like these two quick cards.
Thank you for looking, take care

Make My Mondays POT POURRI

A new month... a new theme at MMM Decembers theme has been chosen by Caz and she's given us a delightful Pot Pourri of challenges. So to start December off she would like to see
Your Favourite Flower
I've chosen to use Poinsettia, not actually my favourite flower but I'm waaay behind with my Christmas cards. I wanted to save one of my favourite flowers for next weeks challenge ?
Products Used
Creative Expressions: Holly. I stamped the Holly corner directly onto the card.
Adirondack: Meadow
Versamagic, black embossing powder, Promarkers; red and green for the Poinsettia which was stamped onto card, cut out and layered with Pinflair Glue.
Stickles Christmas Red
SU label punch
Black glitter

Variation on the theme
I've had such trouble getting decent photographs on these dark dismal days. I took this outside nestling in the ivy... the dark green card base hardly shows at all
No green leaves on this one just a smidgen of gold glitter added
Hope you enjoy this lovely challenge set for us by Caz pop across to MMM to see  the lovely DT projects 
 A big thank you to all that come to see me, you are most welcome.
