Winter Wonderland Card

This is my card for the MSE challenge. This was a freebie image ( I cant remember where from) and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for this challenge. There is glitter on the snowy bits, but this doesnt really show in the picture.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Advent Calendars

These are the advent calendars I have made for my children. The pockets are mounted onto mountboard, covered with sticky back plastic.I printed the patterns for the pockets onto thick card and then added a stamped number. Inside each pocket has a paper insert to hold something in. In each pocket I have put some chocolate coins. I am quite please with the way they came out and hope they will last for a few years to come.

Father Christmas Card

I had these aperture cards and decided I would try Iris Folding. I was suprised how easy it was. I even made the pattern up myself! The nose is a berry from a Christmas Cracker wrapping from last year and the papers are just scrap bits left over from other projects.

This is my NEC stash. I brought some lovely Martha Stewart punches that I have wanted for ages. I also brought stickles, glitter, cards, backing card, dst, memento ink in different colours and a lovely butterfly diecut. My daughter had the diecut out of the package before I could take the picture, so it had already been used!

Choccys Challenge

I have done this card for a friends wedding in a few weeks time. This image was sent to me by CT on MSE, so thank you very much. I was also sent a Tilda one by Kms. I coloured them both and let my OH pick which one he prefered. I think I will add Just Married to the back of the car, but other than that I am very happy with it.

I did this card for one of the ladies on MSE, I hope she liked it. I made it using nesties for the ovals and die cuts for the flowers. The Happy Birthday is a stamp. This was the first time I had use promarkers to colour the main flowers, they were originally white.
