Do you wanna build a snowman?

Good Morning all and Happy Sunday!

I've had a very busy cardmaking session for the last few days catching up on my DT work for
 and doing some of my own research into stamps and drawing a few doodles...
I will be sharing those soon but first another Christmas card using the beautiful new stamps, dies and papers from WRS.

 I've used 
Girl and Snowman stamp
Christmas sentiments stamp
Frosty Corner die
Frosted lace paper pack

Coloured with promarkers and Spectrum Noir pencils.

I added glitter glue to the hats and her outfit and ultra fine shake on snow glitter underneath.

 This frosty corner die was glittered and jewelled up too!

Snowflake charm, lace and gingham ribbon and flower for the finishing touches.


Some challenges;

Allsorts Challenge...Early Christmas makes
Let's Craft and Create...Anything Goese
Top Tip Tuesday...Anything Goes

So thanks for dropping by...please leave a comment or become a follower especially if you love WRS stamps. I've lots more Christmas makes to show too!

I'm back to school on Wednesday getting ready for the new school year...lots of new Yr 3's and a couple of new teachers, some familiar faces too among the upper juniors.
Looking forward to hearing all their news and seeing the holiday snaps.

Summer Holidays and Christmas Cards?

Good Morning!
I'm back again...
Summer Holidays have kept me away from my laptop, however, crafting has been taking place in between various activities...
Daughters birthday, trip to Egypt and a Wedding!

Just a couple of holiday phots for you...

 Resort pool...

Snorkelling in the Red Sea...

Desert Dune Buggy!

My youngest swimming with the Dolpins!

It's all about Christmas now to most cardmakers especially if you are on a DT for a wonderful stamp company called Wild Rose Studio.

So much gorgeousness popping through my door that its impossible not to be inspired to start the Christmas cards even if it's hot and sunny outside.

Too much cuteness!
Basically everything is from Wild Rose Studio...
Stamp, papers and dies and I really encourage you to look at the new christmas dies.
They arrived literally the day I went on my hols so I haven't managed to use them yet but the snowflakes and frames are beautiful.

Coloured with promarkers first and then with my Spectrum Noir pencils...

Organza bow and the ivory with a sparkle and pearl flower.
This postage stamp sentiment is from a set and I coloured it in which I've never done before.
Love how it looks!

Obviously had to add glitter and jewels to the bouquet!

Winter Wonderland...Anything goes for Christmas
Let's Craft and Create...Ribbon or Twine

So were heading towards the last week and wow how quick has that gone?
As usual I will be cramming everything shoes shopping and hopefully another beach walk.

We have movie and Pizza night tonight for 5 eleven year olds...
and then a 50th Garden party on Sunday!
Hope you all have a FAB weekend!

A Christmas Delivery...

Good Morning!
I'm up early on a holiday day to show you my weekend makes...
I had to forget the sunshine pouring into my craftroom window and transport myself to a Winter Wonderland of snow ...
Can you guess what I was making?

Yep...First Christmas Card of 2014 for Wild Rose Studio using the New releases...

Paper- from Festive Wishes pack
Stamp- Girl with Xmas presents
Sentiments- Christmas Labels

Coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pencils.

It was fun re-visiting my Christmas box of Ribbon and sparkles...
My glitter is always being used so I was squeezing the last of the snow one...

I decided to go for a really icy blue tone card for this little cutie...and matched up all the blue papers from the pack...I couldn't decide on which paper so I used a strip from each...

First time out for this Snowflake charm and the little silver stars are from a nail kit wheel...
Amazing what you can pick up in the £1 shop!
Ric Rac Ribbon and white 3mm satin ribbon are always in my stash.

Very sweet North Pole stamp from a sentiment stamp set which are so useful!

So some challenges for this card

Winter Wonderland...Anything Goes for Christmas

I love Promarkers...Ribbons

Allsorts...My favourite things
(My Wild Rose Studio Stamps, My Promarkers, Ribbons and glitter)

I have to say this is the earliest I have started my Christmas makes.
I usually wait until I've been on holiday!

Hope you can pop back again to see some more Christmas cards...
Leave me a comment so I know you have been...and I will come visit you too.
