Santa hands out Presents

Hi everyone,
I would love to show you my latest Christmas card!

Santa hands out Presents.. sitting on the Snowy Roof.
 I am just sooooo pleased with how this card turned out especially as its only my second try with Distress Inks!
Its been a bit of a trial trying to find a good smooth watercolour paper here in Melbourne I have to say!

Anyway, I wanted to make Santa look like he is ready to go down the chimney with presents, I think he looks just so right there. 
He had to have a sleigh and reindeer too and don't forget the Naughty & Nice list LOL..

Tilda with Scarlet the Pig

Hi everyone,

Here is a card for my youngest granddaughter who was 5 years old on the 25th October and will be joining her big sister at school next year, oh my goodness they grow up fast!

I've used Tilda with Scarlet the Pig as Tamara loves Peppa Pig and Purple, this is the closest I could get to it lol.

Daisy lace
Chiffon ribbon
Ballon die
all from my stash
lots of Stardust Stickles.

Have to say Tamara had perfect sunny day and she loved her card!

until next time, happy crafting.


Cards with Hessian

Hi everyone,

I would like to show you some of the cards I have been making over the last few weeks for a florist in my area.
These are only 4 of the 15 cards that I made in a little under 2 weeks - phew!
The blackboard parts on the cards are for putting own sentiments on once purchased.

I was really pleased with the way they all turned out considering I had never made a card with Hessian on, thank goodness for Spotlight for the hessian and blackboard paint!
It was definitely out of my comfort zone but once started it was fun.

Until the next time, happy crafting,
