Hello guys! what a busy last two days... I've made three christmas cards and two birthday cards so am quite pleased with myself. I also spent last night stamping and colouring images so that's another job done!

Also i am a complete digital stamp convert! I completely fell in love with the 'Winter Delivery' squirrel on Mo's Digital Pencil and absolutely had to have it then when i looked through the rest of the christmas images i simply had to have the gorgeous Noelle Bearing Gifts and Siku and Shiya! Just couldn't help myself lol!

Anyway, hopefully i'll get the three christmas cards up over the weekend ...

bye for now

Tilda Birthday Card

Here is my third and final card...

This is my second attempt with my new promarkers I'm pleased with how the green shading turned out but it's definitely going to take a lot lot more practice to get the results i've seen a lot of you doing on your blogs! Here's hoping i eventually get there.

This post has taken me forever to write because my nutty westie has decided to sit on my lap (which already has a laptop on) so i'm leaning over him to write and he keeps having a lick of my hand which is really putting me off lol! He's a sweetie eh?

Anyway next card to follow ....

New cards!!!

Hey guys, it's been a long time since i've managed to find the time to make some cards, but today i actually made three! check me eh? i made two thank you cards for relatives for the lovely presents they sent me as they live away and also my nan's birthday card for Saturday. Before i show you the cards i thought i'd share a couple of pics of my michievous little westie Casper. Here he is in his winter coat...

LOL doesn't he look a handsome little chap! and the next picture is the little fella taking a nap... or rather looking at me like 'come on mum i'm trying to sleep!' lol
