Last one!
For this speedy card I have used another Digi Stamp Boutique image, die cut it, and coated it with micro-beads so it all sparkles. Love these beads, especially on Christmas cards.
And that's it. Another three done! Yay!

Ok....quickie card number two. For this one I have used an image from Digi Stamp Boutique, coloured with Copics. I've used one of my fave dies to cut the image out and threaded through some matching ribbon.

Quick post for quick card!
Hazel's challenge at her CraftyHazelNuts Christmas Challenge blog is to make a card in 20 minutes or less. So I've made a few as I am sooooo far behind with my Christmas cards this year!
For this one I have used the free "Happy Christmas" die that came with a card-making magazine. I have used silver mirri card for the die-cut and layered up white pearlescent card with more mirri, adding a couple of sparkly snowflakes to finish the card off.

Hi everyone.
I'm here today with my little DT  make for The Crafter's Cafe where the theme this week is "Shaped Cards".
I've used an image called "Sunday-afternoon" from Karleigh Sue Digis. Isn't she just soooo dreamy! I've coloured her in with Copics and used X-cut xtra large dies to cut backing paper (magazine freebie) and my base card. I've added another die cut threaded with ribbon and some butterfly punchies to finish off.
Hope you like it. Now it's over to you. Our sponsor this week is:
Oooh, just wanted to share this little gem with you:
Not really my cup of tea but it's a giggle!

Good morning everyone!
We're going all Autumnal over at Crafting For All Seasons for the next fortnight. I have to say, if I was pushed to choose a favourite season, it would be Autumn. I think we are so lucky in the UK to have our changing seasons; I love each one for different reasons, but Autumn, for me, is the best. I love the changing colours of the leaves on the trees and I love the snuggly nights in and foggy, misty mornings.
Ok, turn off poetic mode; turn on card mode! We are sponsored by Limited Runs for this challenge

and I have used their little bird house. I've made a simple card using a snippet of pretty paper and some skeleton leaves, and a beautiful sentiment stamp (I'll try and remember where that's from!).
So that's it from me....get your snuggly onesie and warm socks on and go Autumnal!

Good morning everyone!
My card today is for The Crafter's Cafe where the theme this week is "For a child". We are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and I have used their little "AJ in a Race Car" image. Got my Promarkers out to colour up this little guy and made a simple layered background with papers from my scrap box.
The sentiment is from a fab set by Raspberry Road Designs called "Boy Labels".
Now it's over to you!

Hi everyone. I'm in Christmas mode today! And we have glorious sunshine Haha!
I have used a Lacy Sunshine image for this card. This little beaut is called Snowy Days, love, LOVE Rory!!!
I've coloured the image in using Copics and here's a close-up:
(and I've just realised I haven't coloured her eye! OOPS!)
Anyhoo....I've made a twisted easel card using papers and elements from the Vintage Frost collection by Michele R Designs. Love her papers! All gorgeous! I've added some Twinklets as snow and finished the card off with a few flowers from my stash.
Hope you like!

Good morning blogland!
I would love to tell you I'm in a really happy place but as I write (the night before this goes live), I am sad....not proper sad but sad enough. It's back to the norm tomorrow. Kiddies back to school and back to work for me. I've had just over two weeks off with them and it feels like forever. Loved every second. Lots of crafting; lots of baking; lots of watching Frozen ( had not seen it before!); and lots of lazing around just giggling and doing nothing much.
Oh well.....we can do it all again after 3.00pm today! Yay!
Onto my DT make for Crafting for all Seasons where the theme for the next fortnight is "Wheels and/or cogs". We are sponsored by the fabulous Kenny K from where this glorious "Devillish Donna" inage comes. I have coloured her in with Copics; had a bit of a play with the hair but quite like it! The rest of the card is made up from little bits and bobs from my craft room. Having a jolly good clearout because I have far too much stuff that will have a happier home elsewhere!
So now it's over to you, "wheels and cogs"....wheely easy!
