Hello and welcome to my new followers :)
Well I've had a lovely day today the boy's were off school because of the strikes, so we decided to put the christmas tree and decorations up and while we did it we watched The Polar Express to get us in the mood (i love this film).
Anyway today I have a card to show that I made using this week's Passion For Promarkers fab sketch. I've used one of my fave christmas Tilda images who has been coloured with Promarkers and teamed her with some Me To You Winter Wondrland paper's, sentiment was done on computer,ribbon is Dovecraft,adhesive stones are from hobbycraft and Handsticthing.
Well thanks for stopping by, Have a lovely evening :) xx

Good evening!Hope you've all had a good weekend?We've had a very busy but equally enjoyable weekend visiting family :)
Today's card is for one of my cousin's for christmas, have'nt used an image on this one because he's 17 and not really into the cute image's I use lol. So used my sizzix and nestability snowflake die's instead. I love the colour combo on this. I'm entering my card into this week's Charisma Cardz challenge which is Snowflakes.

Good evening.Hope you're well? This week's LOTV challenge is Anything Goes so I had to join in! I'm afraid it's another topper as I'm just not in a colouring mood at the moment lol. And these Tea Party paper's from Dovecraft went prefectly with the image, sentiment is craftwork cards, adhesive stones are papermania, ribbon is making memories and Handstitching. Really like the blue,creama and brown colour combo on this so think I may be using it again :)
Well have a lovely evening, I'm off to feed my boys :) xx
