Cards, cards cards and a dose of the old swine flu!

Hi, Haven't posted for a while on here, I've been really poorly with swine flu all week which thankfully is now subsiding so i've started to feel more normal again. Just felt so ill! I literally couldn't do anything but lie in bed with the tv on! Yuck! Anyway finally managed to do some cards today be it in my PJ's lol!

Anyway here's the first card using my gorgeous new little Claire stamp featuring the adorable Mr Darcy! I absolutely had to have this stamp because as you know i have a little westie too!

I used: Papers: forever friends and Daisy and Dandelion

Punched leaves: woodware

Second card is using my gorgeous Mo's Digital Pencil Winter Delivery image

Wow what a long post! hope you're still awake lol... Just one more card for you and that's a thank you card for my friend at work who has been an absolute star and really helped me get a lot of jobs done... she adores baking so i thought it would be a good time to test drive my brand new Tilda with Apple Pie!

I'm not completely convinced by the card! I had trouble with the layout and the colours of paper I wanted to use so i'm not too happy with it... i just hope she will like it!

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far... as you know I went to the NEC today courtesy of my lovely boyfriend, who also accompanied me (I know, how good is he?)

I got my first Magnolia Tilda stamp (Tilda with apple pie) my first two Little Claire's Designs (I could have brought the entire stand because all their designs are just absolutely gorgeous!) A cute christmas stamp set and a beautiful Penny Black stamp.

I also brought two paper packs, two punches (snowflake and little branch) three packs of pro markers, an A3 cutting mat, and 9 different lots of flowers (can never have too many flowers) and finally....... wait for it....... my gorgeous boyfriend brought me a Cuttlebug for christmas!!!!! YAY cannot wait for christmas day now!

Hope those of you who went got some lovely stash too!

Rachelle Anne Miller stamp

Hi again, here's my third christmas card from yesterday, i'm really happy with the colours of this one as they're quite bright but still feel christmassy. Here's the photo anyway...

Also it's the first time I've used flowers on a christmas card and I think they look okay.

Card recipe

Image: Rachelle Anne Miller image coloured with Pro Markers with a touch of stickles glitter glue on the holly berries.

Papers: Papermania Naughty and Nice and Home for Christmas

Flowers: Hero Arts Summer Collection with gems from stash for centres

Sentiment: Daisy and Dandelion

Ribbon: from stash.

I've just finished my first christmas card order now which has pleased me no end! only 6 cards but trying to find the time to actually sit and get them done has been tricky (again that constant problem we crafters have of time!) i've got about 10 more christmas cards on order, then my own to make, then of course some to take in for work colleagues to have a look at lol! Never ends eh? I do love it I just wish there were more hours in the day...

Anyway that's it for another day, going to spend the afternoon catching up on blog hopping and with Most Haunted as I sky plussed last night's episode.

bye for now x

Mo's Digital Pencil Christmas cards

Hi bloggers, here are the two christmas cards I made yesterday with two of my latest Mo's Digital Pencil images. The first is Siku and Shiya (aren't they just gorgeous?)

Card Recipe:

Image: Siku and Shiya from Mo's Digital Pencil, coloured with Promarkers and hoods decorated with glitter flocking powder from my stash.

Papers: Daisy and Dandelion paper pack, Forever friends paper pack and gemstones

Ribbon: from my stash

Sentiment: Daisy and Dandelion

Snowflakes and Mittens: From my stash

Second card is using the Winter Delivery sketch from Mo...( another gorgeous image)

I'm really not happy with the colouring on this card, definitely need some more promarkers i think so I can give more of a blended look. At the moment it's looking too 'felt pen' like.

Card recipe

Image: Winter Delivery by Mo coloured (badly) with promarkers

Papers: Forever Friends paper pack and Papermania Naughty and Nice and Anita's mirri Card

Everything else from own stash

Hope you like them, if you have any comments or suggestions (particularly on my bad colouring) i'd be really grateful. Thanks xx
