Black Friday!

Crikey, I've been so busy this week that I've had absolutely no time for blogging but hope to rectify that over the weekend.

The challenge on Stamp Something this week is Black Friday. To be honest with you, I didn't know what this represented but apparently it's sale time in the shops in the States! The challenge this week is to make something with black in it and here's my contribution......



My first time at inking this stamp which is called Santa's Collage - sorry, I don't know who it's made by but I've kept him simple by layering him onto black Bazzill c.s. and mirricard. Snowflake brads are from my stash and greeting is a peel off - haven't used one of those in ages!!

A really rushed posting again I'm afraid because we've got to race out to Tae Kwon-do but will have more to share over the weekend.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

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.
