Happy Christmas

Morning all, I have been a bad girl and could not resist peeking at one of my christmas presents the wrapping was split and the temptation just got the better of me, and when I saw what it was I got so excited and could not wait to use it, I have confessed to my granddaughter what I’d done because I felt really bad hehehe. But I have another present to open from her and her family. I love my Penny Black stamps. So I made this Quick card, the stamp is called a thorny affair, I coloured it with promarkers added some  glitter to the berries and a Merry Christmas sentiment. Merry Christmas to you all.

Good afternoon, from what i hear and see from photos some of you are getting some of the white stuff, I love the snow, but I do understand it causes a lot of disruption for so many people stay safe and keep warm..  I have stamped  a little cutie hedgie from Penny Black, coloured him with promarkers, I stamped some snowflakes in white onto the blue square background but as they dried they seemed to fade away, I added a snowflake corner and a couple of snowflakes dies to the other corner. The white background I embossed using the fallen snow embossing folder from Stampin up

Festive Greetings

Hi there, I have been messing about this morning thought I would get my ink pads out and have a go at making some snow banks, there not perfect but I was quite pleased with the result, this was the best out of four or five lol.  The  birds and trees stamps are from card-io stamps, the sentiment is an old Woodware stamp, I stamped a penny  Black snowman and coloured him with promarkers and added some glitter. I love this time of year and because it snowed  at home yesterday it inspired me to use one of my favourite colours and make this snowy scene.
