It's been a busy week again. My daughter went back to work yesterday and I am helping out with the babysitting. I am looking after Finn on a Wednesday. We enjoyed a lovely day playing and having fun. No time for crafting, I will need to wait till he is a little older to introduce him to stamping.
Another Christmas card and very simple again too.
I used the sketch from the Penny Black challenge but not a PB image. This image is a digi from Amberinks. The papers were a freebie from Cardmaking & Papercraft last year. It is coloured with Promarkers and a little Stickles. The die cuts are Nesties and Spellbinder Snowflakes and a bit of Cuttlebug Dots.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

My Award

I am back to post my award. Thanks Sarpreet and Sylvie for thinking af me. The rules are to pass on to 7 people, so here goes.
That was hard work.

I made this quick Christmas card but I am not too sure about it. I feel it is not quite complete, so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
I used a digital image from Jak, Nesties, Cuttlebug dots, Gems and Liquid Pearls.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Charisma cardz - Die cutting
Stamp something - Digital creation


It's nearly the middle of another week and I don't seem to be catching up with everthing yet. My inspiration is a little low at the moment, when I get time to craft the ideas seem to dry up.
I made this little horseshoe for my grandson Finn to give to my niece on her wedding day. I was going to buy one, but the local shops didn't stock what I was looking for. So nothing else for it but to make one. This is the result. I used Nesties, Woodware punches, Sizzlets heart, Fiskers small hearts & McGill leaf punch.

I am entering this into the One Stop Craft Challenge which is Not a Card and Allsorts which is less than 3 inches.
I have been lucky to receive awards, not 1 but 2 from Sarpreet & Sylvie. A big thank you for thinking of me. I shall pop back later with it.

I'm joining in with everyone else and making a Christmas card. I have used Vee's sketch #36. It is another simple card. I can't even say much about what I used, the stamps are unknown and coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment is Penny Black and the holly is mounted on Nesties.
I've had a stinker of a cold this week, so I'm off to bed with a hot drink.

Card number two is another of Ruth's digital images 'Anthurium'. I have used this image before but I was inspired by a plant in a window in Perth recently. It was in the colours that I have used in my card, which I thought were unusual but nice.
I used Ruth's anthurium, Nesties labels, Craft Creation gingham paper, promarkers, Martha Stewart punch and liquid pearls.

They are very simple and must be the quickest cards I have ever made. I used Craft Creations paper, Nesties, Cuttlebug , Messy Rabbit stamps and Promarkers.

This is the picture of one of the cards and look who was interested!!!
Finn is now mobile, crawling everywhere and popping up when least expected.
