I want to wish you all a
Merry Christmas

Fasten Your Seatbelts

Thats the name of the new release at

this week

I coloured her with pro markers and decided to keep her quite simple. I used plain blue, red and white card and did faux stitching. 
Having never flown I asked my daughter what airline crew say to you, she told me they point out where the important things are. So thats how I got the 'here' greeting :)

Merry Mistletoe

Hiya Bloggers
I'm back with this weeks New Release from

I love this image and I think she is just perfect for those special male cards

Don't Pout, Just Kiss

I coloured her with skin with copics and the rest with pro markers, added glossy accents to her lips and icicle stickles on her shoes and the pompoms on her leg warmers
The red backing paper is from DoCrafts 12 days of Christmas collection, backed on pine green card. The present paper is from my stash along with the gold ribbon and flat back pearls. The 'Joy' sentiment stamp is from the Whimsy 'Holiday Mini Postage Stamps' set and the 'Christmas Kisses' stamp was from a magazine freebie set

Bella Fairy

'Bella Fairy'
is the name of this beautiful digi from
and I would like to share my take on her with you

Again she was one of the images I took on holiday with me to colour, I decided to keep her very simple and pastel. I coloured her with my pro markers and then once home I found some pretty pink backing paper with a daisy/doily pattern on. I coloured a plain white doily with pastel coloured chalks to match the images and the flowers I had picked out to use. I added flat backed pearls to the flower centres and the corners of the card. The wings I made super sparkly with Smooch Glitz.

Mirror Mirror .......

....... on the wall
This weeks New Release at The Stamping Chef is just brilliant

I coloured her with pro markers and white gel pen, added clear glitz glam to the mirror and used a black glitter sakura on the mirror frame. I used a quite detailed paper so just used black co-dinations to matt it onto. The leaves & swirls are cut from purple mulberry & black linen paper using Marianne Design Branch Forrest die

Screw You!

Noooooooooooo I'm not being nasty or abusive, that's the name on this weeks New Release at The Stamping Chef

As soon as I saw her I knew she would be perfect for the dreaded male card, why do I struggle making men's cards, it does my head in
So she was coloured with pro markers and I used papers from my stash. The sentiment I stamped using some small wooden alphabet stamps, and yes I wanted it to look wonky. I added some buttons and a spanner charm to give a bit of embellishment but not too OTT
If you buy her this weekend you will get a fantastic 20% off the price but only for the weekend, so what are you waiting for
