Birthday Card

Hi folks.

For the last post of 2011 I want to share the birthday card I just made for my aunt.  It's a little late (she's known me my whole life - it won't surprise her!).

I coloured Louie from Digistamp Boutique using promarkers, using the "round and round" technique which makes him look fluffy.  He is matted on baja breeze SU cardstock and finished off with some sunny yellow ribbon from Papertreyink.  [edit - I am aware I forgot to colour in his other hand!!  now remedied :)]

Last Christmas card of 2011

I made this using my favourite cartridge, Create-A-Critter.  I REALLY wish PC would ask Nancy Kubo to do another cartridge - her style is just perfect for Cricut.  I live in hope, anyway!!

This was my boyfriends card, a darling little penguin stood outside his igloo house :D  Of course this warranted LOTS of glitter, which I applied liberally to his house and scarf.

I hope you all have great new year celebrations.  I am ill at the moment (sore throat that has stolen my voice!!) so we'll be staying in watching something good.  I might have a drink for "medicinal purposes"  ;)

Love you you all and have a safe 2012.

Checking my list... and i'm done!!!!

This is the last "special" card I had to make - i'm going to have a glass of wine tonight, to celebrate!!

This was made using the "Checking the List" digi from Tiddlyinks :) and some of the GORGEOUS papers from the DCWV "Jolly and Bright" stack.

Harry Potter card

Hi folks.

I needed to make a card for my boyfriend's best friend, Paul who is HP mad :)  These are the wizard/wizardette digi's from Tiddly Inks.  I halved the card front, sprayed the bottom with silver glitter spray and topped and bottomed with torn "river rock" card from Stampin up.  The font I downloaded from

Images coloured with Promarkers.

I am alive... honest!

Hi bloggers and bloggettes!

Well I know it has been an age since I posted anything - my life has been going at 100 miles an hour and work has been a HUGE part of that.  So after delivering some HUGE projects, I went through a restructure and I got a promotion!!!  It starts in January and I am hoping to have a few calm weeks until I have to learn my new job and hopefully that'll mean I can get some creations posted.  I am following you all though :)  I love seeing what you make.

Also had a nice parcel yesterday!  Provocraft had cause to say "sorry" to me (it's a long story!) and they sent me three cartridges!!  I got Art Philosophy, Winter Woodland and Simply Charmed.  I haven't liberated them from their plastic yet so that is on my list of things to do tonight :)

I am really looking forward to my weekend - we'll go to Solihull and pick up some final Christmas presents, then come home and put the tree up :)  I also want to go to Lakeland to get some decorations for our new house - I can't wait to see this place all festive :)

I hope you're all ok anyway - keep posting!
