More Christmas!

My card quota is growing daily! This time I have used a candibean stamp. Trying to practice my hair colouring technique. Here's the first one.
and here's the second one using a saturated canary digital stamp. Marker slipped on the short haired girl.....over zealous flicking technique!!

Lovely day for a spot of crafting!

I don't think it can get any darker outside, for daylight hours anyway! We have got to have all of the lights on and it feels miserable, so what a perfect opportunity to play with craft toys! I have been getting ahead with my DT stuff so I'm feeling virtuous and now playing with some of my other toys. I love my digi stamps as you probably know and these new Saturated Canary images really appeal to me. This little lady was coloured with copics and the papers were from the pad I bought at the works. No stitching on here today but there will be plenty of stitched cards in the coming weeks as I love my new machine! The die is a memory box one and a Christmas present to myself! Santa doesn't always get me what I want and so I have to give him a helping hand!

Saturated Canary pretty.

Morning all, what a weird weather day today is turning out to be! One minute beautiful sunshine, then a massive gust of wind threatening to remove the garden fence, then  the biggest, blackest cloud ever and you have to turn the lights on. I don't really fancy going out in it to be honest but I will have to as we are missing an item for my home made pizza later on....the cheese! You have to have cheese on a pizza! Anyway, on to my pretty lady card. i bought the new digis from Saturated Canary from the very talented Krista Smith and I am slowly making up some cards for the birthdays through the year. I was lucky enough to have a new sewing machine for Christmas :0). I was so happy! It's whizzingly fast, but quiet and I confess it's a lidl model, so wasn't expensive, but does the job and hubby is so pleased that it's not as loud or indeed as heavy as my old one...having said that I'm not getting rid of the old one just yet, we went through uni together and I made some of my clothes on it as well as masses of other things and as much as I love my new one, what if it packs up?? The newer model has everything kind of build in, so it's not going to stand the test of time I'm sure! Call me a cynic, but modern things just don't last like the old stuff. Anybody agree with that?

Moving swiftly on to my card, I have used copics to colour her, a range of dies and some embellishments from the ribbon girl. The papers, ribbon and button came from the works. I have been pretty impressed with their stuff recently, as they have had some great embellishments, plus you get loyalty points, which equals money back. Hope you like her. xx

Long time gone!

I hope that you all had a great Christmas and that Santa was kind to you. He was to me and he brought me some lovely crafty things! Dies being one of them! Here is a selection of both Christmas 2014 and a few Christmas 2015 cards, as I am being super organised this year and have made quite a few cards already! I don't know what's come over me! Probably the fact that I have been so flipping cold here without water and heating due to the boiler breaking down and that was weeks ago! And it's like friends reunited seeing all my crafty stuff again! It's finally been completed today and oh how lovely it is to be warm and not sit in your hat, scarf and gloves inside your house!So crafting is glorious!!

Waiting for Christmas.

I ordered the  Magnolia Christmas stampclub kit as I haven't ever been disappointed with these and this little collection was no exception. This is the first one I have coloured up and I'm really pleased with how she turned out.
