Yep, I have done a couple more cards. Its a quick crafty fix for me as I take ages doing scrapbook pages haha!
I actually managed to do last weeks DCM card!
The challenge was..... "we are dreaming of a WHITE (and splash of pink Christmas!) I would love you to design a card which includes white mostly (ie: snow, snowmen etc ) and also a little splash of pink somewhere on the card. :)"
So this is what I did and I made it with one of my nieces in mind......
The background was embossed using a Sizzix texture plate and then the pink is a strip of vellum. The ribbon is tied around both pieces which was all then sewn onto the card blank. The little snowmen is Sizzix again which I layered and coloured in. There is a smattering of pink ink around the edges and highlighting the embossing under the snowmen. I also stamped little snowflakes onto the pink vellum. Aaaaw, love those snowmen - they are soooo cute!
This next card was for the latest Fiskarette challenge (click on blinkie on the left and join us!) - Sew onto a project. Thats an easy one for me cos I do that anyway.
I used Cloud 9-Christmas papers and chipboard sentiment from BasicGrey Wassail. The gorgeously thick felt is from a table runner which I bought at the weekend. I sewed around the flower and up the stem and added seed beeds into the middle of the flower.
I have a load of this table runner to use so you just might see some more appearing on projects over the next few weeks!
Fingers crossed I will get some time to craft this weekend. I really, really need to!
Last weekend Abi and myself spent the whole Saturday in town, looking at the stalls at the Victorian Fayre and managing to get some more Christmas shopping done. Abi managed to finish hers too. The whole town was heaving with people - so many come from far and wide to visit the Fayre and you could barely move! Had a lovely lunch at Pizza Express though - mind you we did have to queue to get a seat. Not eaten there before and as I am not really into pizza I tried one of their pasta dishes and it was gorgeous! Will have to go there again.
This Saturday is free at the moment though - so I must dedicate that to getting some presents made - and maybe more cards! You never know.... :-)
