Well this is my last card for tonight i promise.It's been soo nice not having to make a christmas card that i got a bit carried away lol.This last card i made was just because i had this stamp for christmas and just wanted to play.I have used basic grey 'eva' paper's,x-cut flower punch,papermania vellum,scallop circle nestie,rub-on sentiment free with mag ages ago,paermania and dovecraft ribbons,dmc thread and craftwork cards jellie tots.thanks for looking.hope you're all enjoying your last few days of 2008!xx

p.s please scroll down and take a look at my other three cards posted tonight.thanks.xx


Over on sketch saturday there is no sketch this week instead you have to make using your fave sketch!I loved sketch 30 because there was so many layers to it which meant i could use lots of papers which is a bit of an addiction of mine lol.I have used a sarah kay image coloured with whispers,paper's and ribbon are papermania,dcwv cardstock,x-cut flower punch,penny black sentiment and craftwork cards jellie tots...absolutely love these little beauties!thanks for looking.xx


The second card uses a forever friends stamp which i also coloured with whispers,free papers, flower and gem and anita's peel-off.hope you like?xx

Hi everybody!Does anyone else feel that christmas went by too fast?Can't believe in a few days we'll be bringing in the new year!Well last night was the first decent sleep i've had in about 4 days due to a stinking cold which is finally going.So now that i feel much better i have made a few cards with some of my new stamps!Well this week CCT has an 'open theme' which ive made two cards for as could'nt decide which one to enter lol!The first uses cross stitch tilda coloured with whispers,cut out and put onto card with 3d foam pads,the papers were free with a mag and so were the flowers and an anita's peel-off.Gosh what a cheap card that was to make lol.
