Christmas Cards:)

Over at PaperPlay Challenges this week it's all about Christmas:) So with Tilda from Magnolia Stamps, Copics colouring, Stampin' Up! card and ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing and bits-n-pieces from the craft is my first card to show you today!

I discovered 4 Crafty Chicks this morning and immediately used the Christmas theme to make a couple of cards using CC Designs images, Copics colouring, Stampin' Up card, plus other bits and pieces from the craft stash:)

With a little inspiration from Stampin' Royalty this week...(I was thrilled last week when I was in their TOP PICKS!!!) I used one of my Lori Boyd Images, Copics colouring, Stampin' Up papers, flowers, sentiment, punch and a little Versimark background stamping to create this 'Holiday Greetings' card :)

These next two Christmas cards use this weeks theme over at Cute Card Thursday of Stripes....I just love Edwin in his Top Hat from Magnolia Stamps:) Copics colouring, Stampin' Up! papers, punches, sentiment, ink and bling from the stash!

So with Christmas around the corner...I had a request from my friend at the local florist to pop a few cards in the shop....So it was "Hi Ho! Hi Ho! Off to create I go!"...and here they are!

Hope your preparations for Christmas are coming together nicely!! Have a lovely weekend:)

Yippeeee!!! Top Picks!!!

How exciting that two of my Christmas cards from last week were in the Top 3 Picks at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Stampin' Royalty ...scroll below to have a look at them in the 'December Creations' or just jump to the link here:)

Belated Birthday Cards:)

I popped over to Unscripted Sketches (#136)for inspiration to create two special 'belated' birthday cards...and inspiration I found! Copics colouring, Lori Boyd and Stamp It! images, Stampin' Up! papers, punches, ink, sentiments, Cuttlebug embossing..and lots of love and creativity:) These two cards will be in the mail ( yes...I know...just a little late or ok..maybe a LOT late for one of them) for a special family about 17 or so hours drive away!! Always love catching up..and sending through special things!!! many more sleeps until Christmas??! So many things to little time:)

December Creations!!

The first card I'd like to share is a Christmas one using the latest sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:) I've gone for blues and purples using Tilda from Magnolia stamps, Copics Colouring (from October holidays?!?) Stampin' Up! card, ink, sentiment, punch, plus bits and pieces from the craft stash and just love the way its come together!!

The second Christmas card uses this weeks sketch over at Stampin' Royalty...again using the gorgeous Tilda from Magnolia stamps, Stampin' Up! Card, ink, ribbon, punches, Copics colouring and bits and pieces from the craft stash:) Time is just flying by...and with the lead up to Christmas being as busy as ever...I've managed to create a whole class of flip photo albums showing the highlights of 2011..and as I sit here about to blog some cards I've created over the weekend...I've realised that I haven't even taken one photo of my mini photo album creations?!! Had better take a few photos before they get sent home tomorrow:)
