Christmas cards! What else??





Ok, I am getting to the point where I am fed up of making endless Christmas cards! Are you?? I must start them earlier next year! I always say that and never take my own good advice. I'd better start writing them soon and see how many I actually need to finish making. Perhaps then I can have a break and make some January birthday cards!

Lets get stamping group and Dottie's world challenge


This week on the let's get stamping group, Maddie provided the sketch with the added twist of adding spots and stripes. The Dottie's world challenge was to make a card for a boy.

Dottie's world challenge


This week on Dottie's world the challenge is to use gingerbread houses as your inspiration. I thought sweeties, candy canes, greens, yellows and other vibrant colours with warm ginger tones. What do you think?

Having a play today!

The weather has really been horrid today so I have happily been having a play with some images that I have printed out form Messy rabbit cd, charmed downloads and the Lofty stamps which are so cute.






Craftbubble challenge.


Today ove r on the craftbubble lets get stamping group, Lauren set this lovely sketch with the added twist to use one colour with white, black or cream. The image could be coloured however we pleased. I've used lots of embossing here, and stamping with ink to create backgrounds.

Dottie's world challenge

These cards are really beginning to take the craft world by storm! Here's another one I have made using a download from the digi stamp boutique. Sally-Anne has some beautiful images in her shop.

This weeks LGS group craftbubble challenge and cute and girly challenge


Well, this week over on the LGS group challenge we had to make an easel card. This was a Robinson first for me so I'm very pleased with how this turned out and I'm also pleased to say that my tag from last weeks challenge won me a brand new download from the lovely Sharon over at Willow designs! I'll get to play with that later. Yum!
Thanks Pinky for also informing me that this challenge fits in with the cute and girly challenge which has the theme of winter wonderland!
