the sugar bowl # 23

i was doing so well today and thought i would get a few cards done when i dropped my container of brads everywhere!!!! it took me nearly 2 hours to get them sorted i was not best pleased, i really didn't know i had so many. anyway i have managed to get a card done tonight, it is for the challenge on the sugar bowl. i have used a stamp from the homegrown collection called 'santa's little helper' from funky kits. the rest is from my stash. well off to bed for me now, going to try and go out to lakeside tomorrow to start christmas shopping, should be fun!!! see you soon x

creatalicious challenge # 4

this is my first time in taking part in the creatalicious challenge and the theme is christmas. my new stamp from the jolly snowy collection from magnolia just had to be used. he is called 'snoowie snowman with bells' from sir stampalot. the rest is from my stash. i have added snow to the bottom of snoowie and dabbed glitter for snowfall. it is finished off with a ribbon and charm. while i was making this card my son thought it was for him.... this made me laugh as my jacob is 21!!!!!! have a great week and happy crafting x

truly scrumptious # 20

card number 2 is for the challenge on truly scrumptious and it is the sketch plus texture. the stamp is a forever friends called 'santa' from the glitter pot. for the texture i have used fun flock on the fur of the hat and jacket, the paper is from my stash and it already had the squiggly lines on so it was just perfect for the sketch. i have shrunk a sack of presents for the embellishment. i hope aarvin likes his 'first christmas' card. (i have an order for quite a few special cards from my friend amanda's office and this is one of them). thanks for dropping by x
