Monster of a Birthday!

I've actually made some cards today!! Tony has had to go to Newcastle for an interview and has been gone all day (still not back!!) so got started on some cards which needed to be done. This one is for one of Sam's little mates who's having a party on Saturday and thought it would also qualify for the CCT challenge this week which is to make a birthday card!



The image and sentiment are both Whipper Snapper and have coloured the monster with Brushables and layered them both onto Bazzill green and blue cardstock. DP is Daisy Bucket and ribbon and brads are from my stash. Quite a quick and simple card! I will show the other card tomorrow as it's my DT work for Stamp Something.

One thing which I should have done last week but didn't because of all the excitement of Tony coming home is to let you know about a new blog. I have finally persuaded my good friend Jose to start up a blog of her own and she's done it!!! Well done Jose!! So pop on over and take a look at her work, it's great!

My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!

I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
