Crammed full of stunning cards! I really have to get my pennies sorted and get some more Tilda stamps to keep my one little lonely one company!

Passion for Promarkers #22

Phew I am a bit last minute with this card......that's why there is not much to it...but its another Christmas card to add to the box!
This is a cute little stamp that came free with one of my mags, and I have used some leftovers again. The ribbon was white but I used my PM to colour it as I didn't have any red ribbon! The eagle eyed among you may notice that the pic below has some little gems my haste to get the pic taken before it got dark I forgot to put them on!

Many thanks for looking!!

Tilda cards

Made another couple of cards using the some of the images that Sarah had sent me...they are just soooo cute the Tildas! Can't remember the make of this double-sided paper, but I have used both sides on this card and edged with silver ink, I have also added some silver swirls to the corners. The two snowflakes are salvaged from one of last years crimbo cards!

I love this one....I have coloured her with PMs.. cornflower blue, china blue, saffron and sandstone for her clothes and the usual ivory, blush and dusky pink for the skin and cocoa and henna for her hair.

I hope I find somewhere at the SECC selling these lovely stamps cos I really want to get some wishlist is getting bigger by the day!! 3 sleeps to go!!!!!

Who out there is voting for John and Edward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry guys just had to vent my frustration!lol

Not A Christmas Card

Decided to have a wee break in between making Christmas cards today to have a go at finishing off this tartan card that I started a few weeks ago.
This is my one and only Tilda stamp....I bought it with the idea of making some Scottish themed cards (Fort William is a very touristy town)and maybe ask a few of the local shops to sell....just haven't plucked up the courage to go out and ask any!
The swirl is one of my new foam stamps that I got from Docrafts and I have gone over it with some black stickles and added a few punched butterflies.

Close up of the flowers and thistle.

Just watched Meet the Hasselhoffs and they have just been in Fort William!!!Heehee!

Please Please Please can it be John and Edward that go home tonight!!Jude will be most annoyed cos she thinks they are great (well she is only 5!)

Enjoy the rest of Sunday!

Passion for Promarkers #21

Here is my entry for the 21st challenge over at PFP which is a great sketch this week and any its another Christmas card from me!! And I have had a go at Caryns tutorial for her spikey flower. The only thing I am not happy with is the circle sentiment...don't think it looks right so might have to change it later!

I am pleased with my spikey flower....did find it a bit fiddly rolling it up though as I don't have a quilling tool!

Enjoy the rest of the evening!!

Anyone want some embossing boards??

Robins, Summery Happy Birthday doublesided, Flowers and birds Happy Birthday doublesided

Christmas doublesided,Fathers day doublesided, Happy Birthday doublesided, Valentine doublesided

Mothers Day Doublesided, Mr Men Doublesided, Christmas doublesided

Further to my clearout I have these embossing boards and stencils that I have had for a while and never used(got them free with magazines) if anyone would like them I shall give them away in their little bundles...leave me a message telling me which lot you would like and I will do a draw at the end of the week!

We had a fab time over in Dundee...the Sensations Science Centre was great, loads to do and Discovery Point was well worth the visit too! We also went on a bit of a nostalgia trip too for Phil as he lived in Broughty Ferry for a while when he was a young boy, so we went and found the house he used to live in and had a wee wander along the beach!

More Crimbo Cards!

I am on a roll at the mo with my Christmas cards! Still got loads to make though! This cute wee snowman was sent to me with some other Tilda images from the lovely Sarah (Thank you!!) as a thank you for the tool images I sent to her!

This one too!I love all the Tildas and I only have one stamp at the mo...........hopefully might be able to pick up a few when I go to the SECC next week!

I picked up these lovely papers when I was away during the the colours and my paper pile is getting bigger and bigger, think I will need to sort out some proper storage soon.

I haven't put any sentiments on these cards as I will add some special sentiments once I have decided who I will be sending them too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Passion for Promarkers Number 20!!!!

Here is my entry for #20 over at PFP........any colour with 3 different shapes, 2 papers and 1 ribbon. So I have a square shape on the base card, a rectangle and a circle and my little manga girl is sitting on a bit of ribbon....I have coloured her with a little bit of pale blues and greys to give her an icy feel. The sentiment is from my new stash from Docrafts.

I don't know how Jude did it but she managed to close our living room door while her thumb was in the hinged side and omg it looks awful, big gouges on both sides of her thumb...she was screaming for Britain! I am a bit worried that she is gonna lose her nail as it was right on the base of her nail and it is looking really black :0(.....she has it all bandaged up now and is all snuggled up on the couch. For being such a little girly girl she is the one who is always hurting herself and big sis the tomboy never gets a scratch!lol

All my orders finished!!!

These are the last of my orders! I was not happy at all with the mod themed card...sat playing about with it for ages, took it in and said she didn't have to buy it if she didn't like it...but she whooped with delight and said it was perfect! I think it is because it is a bloke card and I just find it soooo hard to get enthusiastic about them!lol
And this is my parcel that came from Docrafts this morning...can you believe I got all this for just over 6 quid?!!!!! They have a fab sale on just now!!

That is me finished work now as the schools are off for 2 weeks and 3 days!!!!!!! I am gonna try and cram in as many Christmas cards as I can! Not this weekend though as we are off to Dundee to take the girls to a Wallace and Gromit exhibition...they are so excited to be going away to stay in a hotel!
