A Peaceful Christmas

With just two days to go until Christmas itself, there is time for one more posting.

This card is one I made for my Nana who will celebrate her 95th! Christmas this year. I used my Cricut machine to cut the Nativity scene. I used polkadot paper as the mat and added the flowers. I don't know if you can see it but I also added some gold glitter on the flowers and the star.

And there is just time to wish you all a very Peaceful Christmas. I thank you for following my blog over the year and I hope to see you all again in 2016 with new work and challenges.

Oh Christmas Tree

So its beginning to look alot like Christmas! We've got one of our trees up and the Christmas lights. This is our mantelpiece looking festive!

I made a few quick cards this week too. This one is made using the Christmas Tree stamp by Woodware.

First I masked off the middle area with low tack tape before applying Distress Inks with a foam. I then over stamped it with the stamp and added the snowflakes and greeting. 

Its a super quick card which is perfect for "THOSE" emergencies!!

We Six Cats

Apologies for not blogging for a few days. I had a craft stall at my son's Christmas Fayre yesterday and have spent the last three weeks buried in glitter and glue!!

I treated myself to another Little Claire stamp this season which is We Six Cats.

I created the background myself using Stormy Sky Distress ink on watercolour card. I spritzed water and dabbed it dry to get the snow like splodges! The cats were coloured with Promarkers and stuck onto the snowy sky. I created a border using a fineline pen to make the image stand out.

I wonder what they are singing??!
