Great day had by all!!

A lovely day was had by all and the girls were delighted with all their pressies!! Lucy thought it was a good idea to wake up at 4!!...we sent her back to bed and then she got up again at 5!..she did eventually fall back to sleep then we had to wake her just after 8 when Jude woke up! All those pressies and they took no time at all to rip them all open!

Jude with the Barbie doll that was top of her list!!

Lucy with her Etch a Sketch.....which I never had the patience for when I was a kid!

MY PRESSIE!!!! my lovely hubby got me the Big Shot and my sis got me all the Stamping Bella stuff....she lives not far from Simply Create in Alford...the most gorgeous shop ever!

Hope you are all having a lovely cards from me yet cos the door to my cubby is blocked by all the girls pressies!!

Thats it no more!!! And Passion for Promarkers!

Firstly I apologise for the pics, I have only just finished some of them and had to take the pictures in my cubby cos that was the brightest place!

These are the Christmas Baubles I made for Jude to give her 2 teachers and her 2 classroom assistants.....and my first attempt at a candle which I made for Lucy to give her teacher! It looks better in real life...a bit pale in the pic! I am really pleased with how it came out....and it was so easy! I am entering these in the Passion for Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge which is anything but a card with a Christmas or New Year theme!

My cupboard doors are definately closed now!

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my previous is a lovely place to live although pretty cold tonight...the forecast is for -14 tonight!! On the way to school the girls found some strange tracks in the snow which I later found out on my way to work was from a little deer that had wandered down to the crescent and was wandering further along amongst the trees beside the bridge!

Made it in time for Passion for Promarkers!

Phew.....finished this in time for challenge over at PFP...this week was any colour and a theme of vintage...I hope this counts as I haven't really made any vintage style cards!
The paper is DCWV....a Sugar Nellie image which I have attempted to colour vintagey but not really done very well! The music sheet I found somewhere on the internet, sorry can't remember where, and I have stamped and embossed with some of my grunge stamps....ribbon from stash and the noel sentiment I have had kicking about for ages but I am not really very sure it goes that well! The holly I got from ebay.
Thanks for having a look!

I have this unmounted Sugar Nellie stamp that I have hardly used and I would like to swap it for some stamped Tilda images if anyone is interested?? Just thought it was a good way of clearing out some of my stash that I don't use!

Passion for Promarkers #25

Apologies for the pic....really dull day here and the light is awful!

Anyway this is my entry for week 25 at PFP where you can use any colour but must follow a sketch...which I love and have used it for two cards today!

The image is a freebie stamp I have had for a while coloured with sandstone, umber and pastel pink. The papers are all scraps that I have used up and some little hearts made with my punches.

This is the other card I did using the sketch again! This was a card I was asked to make for someone who is off an trip......Paddington is another freebie stamp and the earth I printed from the web and coloured with my PMs.

Thanks for stopping by!

PfP #24 and Just Magnolia

This is the first time I have entered a card for two challenges.............but it turned out that it worked for both! The image is another one that the lovely Sarah sent me (thanks!) coloured with Canary and Grass the required colours for this weeks challenge over at PFP......and Just Magnolia want to see distressing....every edge has been distressed and had a little bit of stickles added for some sparkle. I didn't have any patterned paper that matched the colours this week so I just drew some stripes with the Canary and Grass onto some paper and used that! I did have a little circle sentiment stamped but just couldn't decide the best place to put it...everywhere I tried just didn't look right.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
