Ruth's Christmas roses

Ruth has just released some more new images. This Christmas rose caught my eye and I new what I was going to do with it. I coloured with Promarkers and used Nesties, Craft Creations papers, Sizzlets alphabet, chalks and Stickles (doesn't show very well).
I think this makes a very beautiful traditional Christmas card. 
Check out Ruth's other images here.

Less is More

It has been a struggle his past week. I lost my voice  and had a nasty cold. My energy levels were zilch. I had so much I should have been doing and some of it was shelved. 
I bought this Majestix set at the SECC and this is the first ink it has seen. It was certainly a quick card to make. Added a little glitter and scoring and that is that. 
Off now to catch up.

Today at Top Tip Tuesday we have everyone playing with a tipper week. 
We have great sponsor  too....

Our challenge this week is :-

Tag IT
use a tag on your project

My tip is - use tweezers to lift the backing from double sided sticky tape.

So here is my sample. I have made an anniversary card for my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary next month. I have made a centre step card and tried to make it feel like art deco style. 
I used Nesties, Sizzix numbers and hearts, Marianne scroll, Cuttebug dots and some chalks. Sorry can't remember the paper. I made a small roll up rose and added a diamond to the centre. 

I hope you will join us this week and leave some useful tips.
