Card made using Grand Calibur

Good Morning all, I have now got Brian back home and he is well and really enjoyed spending time with the family and friends and his treatment went well, so pleased he’s back it’s been quiet without him.

He bought me an early Christmas Present back with him, so excited as I got to open and use it, he got me the Grand Calibur and 2 dies whooo I am so lucky to receive a gift like this as I have wanted one since they first came out. He was also brought me a new paper cutter as my last one was driving me crazy.

I used one of the dies to make this card shape and distressed it with Pale Pink from Timmy and of course one of my new LOT stamps coloured with Pro Markers.

The paper is an old one from Basic Grey, the Snowflakes are from a MS punch then glittered twice to make them ridged, I think I went a bit overboard with the glitter as I glittered everything in sight lol.

I have entered it into the following challenges:

Wild Orchid – Blue Christmas

Passion for Pro Markers – Old and New– my card is Image and Paper

Everybody Art – Use Shapes – My shaped Card

Incy Wincy and Whoopsi Daisy DT Cards

Good Morning all

I hope you’re all having a lovely day, I am busy today as Brian arrives back home tonight, so happy, even though I have been busy while he has been away the days seem to have drag by.

I went to a craft class yesterday as I have always wanted to make one of those wooden ornaments you see in the shops at Christmas, yes those that cost the earth for a bit of wood and paint. I decided to make a rather large Santa; maybe I should not have been so adventuress for my first project as I had more paint on me!!! than Santa lol but I did have loads of fun, I shall show my results next week when I have finished it.

I have two cards to show you today , both are DT cards, one for Incy Wincy and one for Woopsie Daisy, I hope you will all join in.

Incy Wincy

Over at Incy Wincy the challenged is to use Blue and White.

I use this cute clown for a Birthday Card, coloured with Pro Markers and added glitter to the balloons to give them a bit of sparkle.

The Aspire To Thrive Charity Shop has new images in their updated store so please pop over and check those out.

Remember all money goes towards chairty projects :)
You can win $10.00 to play with in the store :)

Woopsi Daisy
From Whoopsi Daisy the theme this week is Holiday Card, I used the image from sheet 159 she's so cute, you can find the images here and coloured with Pro Markers, the paper and ribbon is from Bo Bunny, sentiment is computer generated and to finish with some gems and glitter, the snowflakes are from a MS punch and glittered.

You could win 2 Digis of your choice from Linnie’s great selection of images.

You don't have to use a Daisy image but it would nice if you did and there is a free image on Linnie's digi site here.

Watch out for our top three winners they will each receive one sheet of digis and a top three banner

Girl Friend Card -Shoes

Hi Everyone

Today was an early start for me, as I had to take Brian to the airport, as he is going to the UK for his treatment and 6 in the morning is far too early for me, but Hey Ho I did get to go to the craft shop nice and early and have tea and cake while I was there yummy.

Today’s card is for a friend who loves shoes and when I saw this image I just had to have it and some others with the same sort of theme, from Do Crafts.

I bought a few stamps when I was in the UK that still need cataloguing as there all in a box at the moment and it’s driving me nut’s, plus I have my new LOTV ordered (ohh I
hope it does not take too long to get to Bahrain) so I’d better get my skates on as I want it all orderly before they get here, I have plenty of time on my hands as Brian is away for a week.

The inside to match

Assorted handmade paper pack.

The back of the clear album so you can get an idea of what it's like.
