Well it is the weekend again but I knew I would have no time to craft so I have managed to spend some time during the week making a card using another of Jenni's fantastic digi stamps. It really is so easy to just print out an image from the computer and colour it in. The image is called snow baby and it is really cute, can you guess what is in his present!
So this weekend, not that I'm bitter, my beloved husband was supposed to be off on a mountain biking trip to Wales. I had planned to spend the whole weekend, and this should have included Friday, pleasing no-one but myself. Eat when I want, watch what I want, craft all I want, are you sensing a ' but' yet? Yes you guessed it at the last minute he didn't go and all my plans crumbled. Ok perhaps that sounds a bit melodramatic but I was looking forward to not cooking, watching Strictly and the X Factor without having to Sky+ etc etc!
Anyway I did get some crafting in so I will have to settle for that. I have made this card for the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp which this week is All White. Not the easiest to follow I discovered and also not the easiest to photograph!
I used the image called Buttons which you can find over at Card Mad Fairy Creations along with lots of other Christmas Digi stamps. Then I dug around for ages trying to find anything I had that was white, which it turns out wasn't a lot! The background paper is actually wallpaper which I have had for years and the glitterboard is from Southfield Stationers.
The greeting is a doublesided peeloff which I embossed with sparkly embossing powder and the snowflakes were made with two different punches with sticky pearls added.
Here is the second DT card I have made using one of Jenni's fantastic digi stamps which you can find over here. This one is called Christmas Owl and I decided I wanted three of them, a bit like the three wise men!
That's what I like about digi stamps, you can play about with the size to suit yourself. I coloured them with my Promarkers, luckily I had the right colours to match the background paper which is one of Dovecraft's I think. I went to visit Jenni last week for a few days so I could visit our Mum who has just moved into a care home and I got total Promarker envy when I saw her collection! Definitely need to get more colours. The ribbon is one I picked up years ago from a street market and I am glad I remembered it as I think it ties in just right. You can find this image and lots of others over at Card Mad Fairy's Creations. Please go and have a look.
I am entering this in the following challenges: Digi Doodle Shop's Best-anything goes Bee Crafty- Christmas Secret Crafter-anything that flies Gingerloft Challenge- buttons Stamps R us Challenge-buttons and bows
Exciting news indeed! My very talented big sister Jenni has been making beautiful card to sell for many years using other people's images. Recently she started drawing her own and selling them on her website Card Mad Fairy. In order to promote her work she decided to put together a design team and I was extremely flattered to be invited to be a member. Please go and visit either of her blogs to see her beautiful work.
I have used the image Christmas Carol to make a card which I will give to my daughter Emma. As I have said before Emma is a singer so any image of someone singing is appropriate for her.
She also loves the colour purple so you can see why I chose that colour! Apart from Jenni's Digi image all of the other elements have come from my stash and I have had them so long I have no idea where they are from although I have a feeling the snowman paper is from Dovecraft.
Thanks for stopping by. Please have a look around and I'd love it if you have time to leave a comment. I have worked as a Teaching Assistant in the infant school my two daughters attended since the younger one was in year 1. She is now 20. I have been crafting in various forms for many years flitting from one thing to another as the Muse takes me. Jack of all trades, Master of none, but I don't mind as I'm having fun!
