Special xmas cards

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are on the road to recovery!!  Today I'm going to post pics of the cards I made for the special people in my life. Couldn't post these before xmas as one of them was only finished on xmas eve!!!
This one was made for my daughter with a Molly Bloom stamp which I coloured with Promarkers. I mat and layered papers (which I think are from a Fizzy Moon paper pack) and added stickles around the edges. I finished off with flowers from Wild Orchid and a greeting from Lily of the Valley.
 This next card is for my son. The image is from Teddy Bo and again it was coloured with Promarkers. To add a little sparkle I covered the image with double sided sticky paper and added Glamour Dust. Again it was mat and layered onto fancy papers, stickled around the edges and then I finished off with some Organza ribbon, coloured with Promarkers, a greeting and a little silver hanging snowflake.
This card was for my darling mum and dad. The image is from Gayle Bond and can be found on the Scrapbook Sisters website. Again I coloured it with Promarkers but chose to black out the male image. I added some Glamour Dust to the dress and then mat and layered and finished off with stickles around the edge and the greeting.
This card was made for my boyfriend using a picture taken when we had a Christmas visit to London to see the lights and we visited Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park. I used a holly wreath image from Meljen's Designs and coloured with Promarkers. I then layered it over the image and mounted with 3d pads, finishing off with a greeting. 
The last card today was one I made for my daughter from her brother. The image is from Digital Doodling and once coloured I glittered the wings with Glamour Dust. I also used Glamour Dust around the edge of the picture rather than stickles and the effect is still amazing. This is the first time I have printed an image with the greeting around it, after a bit of practice I'm sure it will get easier and the sizing will be better. Turned out ok in the end though I think!! I finished off with the snowflakes which were diecut on the Cuttlebug and added some glitter to give them some sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my special cards and please visit again to see what I will be doing next. I have lots of new craft goodies to play with and will be getting to work with them very soon.

Happy New Year to you all.

Kenny K for twins!!

Hi all, just a quick post im afraid tonight as I've been working a long 13hr day today and have just realised that I didnt do the 'tomoro' post as I said the other day!!!
I have 2 cards for you today that I did for a friend's twin boys. I always try to do something different for them as they are both individuals. This first card is made using an image from Kenny K. The alphabet is the Olivia on the Cuttlebug and I mixed upper and lower case for a change. The backing paper is from my stash and it was edged in orange stickles once mat and layered.
The second card is using another Kenny K image, the same alphabet dies and paper from my stash. This time red stickles were used to outline. 
When both cards are stood together this is the result!!! Both boys were impressed and pleased with these thank goodness lol.
Please feel free to leave any comments, I do read them all.
Happy crafting

Fizzy Moon Birthday

Hi all, as promised I am showing the card I made for my nan's 97th Birthday yesterday. Im hoping that I scheduled this properly to post as I will be going to London with Sophie & Connor for the day to see the Christmas lights and displays and have a look round Covent Garden. My wonderful boyfriend and his sons will also be with us so it should be a very nice day out.
The image I have used is Fizzy Moon bear. I think the backing papers are also from a Fizzy Moon pack. I mat and layered the image onto the centre of the backing paper and then finished off with flowers and brads from my stash, lilac card candy and then used letters and numbers from the Olivia set on the Cuttlebug. As usual I've added some 'bling' with pink stickles! 
I hope you like this and come back again tomoro to see my next creation. Tomorrow? you say, yes, I have plenty more to show so may do this regularly for a change!!!

Martini Girl digi and candle

Good morning everyone, hope you are well.
Today is a day of celebrating birthdays. Firstly it is my darling Nan's 97th Birthday (card to be posted here tomorrow) and it is also my dear friend Katie's birthday. The card I am going to show today is Katie's. I have also done a candle with a design to match the card.
The Girl in Martini Glass digi is from Sassy Studio. I coloured this with Promarkers. The backing papers are from the Docrafts Tatty Teddy set. I mat and layered the papers and then edged in pink Stickles. I finished off by adding 'Special Friend' which I cut out using the Olivia letters on the Cuttlebug. These were glittered also. 
For the candle I used the same digi image and a greeting and printed these onto white tissue paper. I then coloured (very carefully!) with my Promarkers. I then added it to the candle in the usual way and finished off with some organza ribbon which I coloured to match and a few little gems. I then placed it into a clear bag and tied with ribbon as this is for decoration only.

I hope you like these 2 items and please come back tomorrow to see the card I made for my nan.
Happy crafting

Ruby Anniversary with doily die

Hello everyone, happy Thursday!!
Today's card is one I made for a friend's Ruby Anniversary. The doily die heart was kindly lent to me by my dear friend Eileen. Please take a look here at a card Eileen has made for Christmas using this die. She also has a wedding card on her blog using it. Her blog is lovely so please visit her.
The backing picture and topper came from Making Cards Special Occasion edition. I matted these onto red card, coloured some organza ribbon for the edge and finished off with a greeting on the computer.
Please come back tomorrow as I do have another card to post. I know its strange but there will definitely be another one to view!!!!!
Happy crafting.

Tealight Card

Hi all, Im back!!!!!!
Sorry its been so long but lots to do and lots I cant post until they've been given. Hopefully will now have chance to publish them all. The first card is one that I saw on this site here. I made it for my good friend Tina on her birthday and she was delighted with it.
The image is from Lily of the Valley and coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from Docrafts Tatty Teddy range. I finished off with some flowers from my stash with a brad and some gems. The card is tied together at the side with some organza ribbon which I again coloured with Promarkers.
This is the inside of the card and has a tag on the left hand side which I finished off with a greeting. I needed to make a box for this also and for once I managed to do it right the first time!!

I hope you like this long awaited post and come back soon for the next one. I have a few ready and waiting!!
Happy crafting
