All I Want for Christmas

That always reminds me of that song about wanting 2 front teeth lol!! Well, I suppose it is inevitable for us crafters that thoughts are already turning to Christmas. I am already getting in the swing of getting the first cards ready to put in the box for my Christmas Fairs. I have to admit though I really enjoyed playing with this Boofle stamp that I have got in stock.

I coloured him with Promarkers & added the highlight on his nose with a white gel pen. I used these gorgeous Nitwit Papers which were magazine freebies last year. They have been teamed with this dark green K&Co Damask paper.
I added some Glamour Dust to his hat & green Stickles to the Robin. 3 Snowflake Brads with their legs removed to hold the card in place x Clare x

Devil ATC

I have been asked to take part in an ATC swap this month. I need to make 2 ATCs with the theme C & D. So I decided to use a favourite image of mine - Cheeky Devil.

The image as always is coloured with Promarkers & I added this great cat & ghost confetti pieces. The ribbon is a small piece found in my stash with a couple of gems. Lastly I added the D rub on. I just love the fact that I can use up all the little bits & pieces I save to make these x Clare x

Twisted Frogs

Well it's the weekend again & we have had some lovely sunshine again. I have had chance to tidy my desk & get a card created, so I thought I would get a Xmas card made.

I love my Easel Cards, but this time I thought it was about time that I had a go at a Twisted Easel card. I used this great stamp featuring some adorable frogs. I stamped them onto pearlescent card & coloured it with Promarkers. I added stickles to their hats & edged the circle with stickles too.

Here is a closeup. The flowers are made with a die. I have to say I do have a soft spot for Poinsettias. The gold edging around the card has been made by cutting strips off holographic peel offs as I had none in my stash. x Clare x

Racing Car

Its the Weekend & It's Sunny!! I hope you are all enjoying yourselves. I am off to a Classic Car Show tomorrow with my cards & supplies. Here is a new card that I have made to take with me.

I am just loving this new paper that I have got in. It is just fab. The image is a topper that I will be stocking in the very near future. It is printed in black & white with a black & silver Mirri edging. Here is a closer look.

I have teamed the cogs & gears paper with black glossy card & added black ribbon. The sentiment is from a Kanban set.

I used another topper on the inside of the card & used the paper & ribbon for the final side. x Clare x

Girly Card

Hello Everyone. It has been a few weeks since I have blogged. Unfortunately I have been dealing with one of my cats over the last 4 weeks. She is only 7, but has been diagnosed with Arthritis in her right hip & Osteoporosis in her pelvis. They have also discovered that she has an extra vertebrae in her spine & are now waiting for tests to see if it has caused any nerve damage. However, I am pleased to say that the medication they have put her on seems to be working. So today I have actually been able to blog a card.

If you follow my blog, you will know that I am not one for doing a lot of pink girly cards. However, I have to admit, with the huge range of images that are now available, I do seem to be enjoying these more. I have used this great image that came free on a cd with a magazine. I have coloured with my Promarkers.

I teamed it with these great Nitwit papers. I then found these flowers hiding in one of my drawers & added gems to the centres. The sentiment is also one that I got a few years ago & hid in a drawer lol!
I have followed the theme of the papers & the sketch through to the inside of the card.

I am hoping that I will begin to get a few more cards made again as I have loads of new things to play with x Clare x
