LOTV Xmas Card xxx

Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a great bank holiday weekend. I have had a nice weekend so far. We went out for tea last night to celebrate Martin's Sister's 21st birthday and we have been out for Sunday lunch today with my Mum, Dad, Nan and Grandad, but I have a stinking cold so I feel rubbish - typical!!

I haven't done much crafting this weekend because I have started a couple of projects that are taking me a little while to complete so here is another Christmas card that I made last weekend.

I used another of my new LOTV images and used my new papers from the Craft Den (can't remember their name now because I am uploading at my Mum's - sorry!!). I love how different the papers are for Christmas. Sometimes I get a little bored with red/gold and green and I like to use something different.

I wanted to use a different embellie instead of the usual flowers so I decided to make a ribbon flower that I have seen Kathryn make many times and I just love the effect. I coloured the image with my copics and used lots of stickles.

I hope you like it and I hope you enjoy the rest of bank holiday!

Skating By.....

Oops don't know what happened with the last post!

Here is my second Christmas Card using the new LOTV image. I have made this for my Cousin who loves to ice skate so I thought that this would be perfect.

I made a small easel card with my new Cosmo Cricket papers, love them. I punched the snowflakes with my MS punch and added my new silver Kars glitter brads from the Craft Den to the Centres.

I added lots of stickles and coloured the image with my copics.

Large Christmas Tags!

I have started to make my Christmas cards so that I can try and get in front this year. I make my own cards and my Mum's so if I leave it until the last minute it can get a bit stressful!!

I am trying to make 2 at the same time, one for me, one for Mum!!!

I wanted to do something different so I tried making large tags to send instead of cards for the younger children in our family. I am really pleased with them.

I used my Bo Bunny papers that I had left from last Christmas along with some glitter mistletoe paper, I love this paper but it was my last sheet :-(

I used my new LOTV image, Baby's 1st Christmas - it's soo cute!

I coloured with my Copics and then stamped around the edge of the frame with a Lavinia Snowflake stamp. I then went around the edges with a distress ink! I also made an area on the back to write on with some plain card.

Some More Weding Cards

Hello everyone. I have been off work today poorly so I had to take a trip the Dr's first thing this morning for some tablets. I am just starting to come round, but still feel rubbish. Never mind, here are the remainder of my cards that I made last weekend.

The first is my favourite LOTV image because I have used it so much. It is so easy to colour and always makes a lovely wedding/anniversary card.

Again, I have used the Bo Bunny peacock papers - that's them all gone now. The wedding theme is purple so I have tried to follow this through on all the cards.

Same image, different layout and I used the off cuts of my papers from the first card.

My Auntie Chanelle kindly let me use her old wedding Magnolia image. I love it! I used some nice wedding papers and just added purple embellies.

Everything I have used on the cards except for the images are from the Craft Den!

I hope you like them and you all have a good weekend.

Crafting Weekend!

When my Mum called me at work on Friday and told me that I couldn't go to her house over the weekend because my little brother Owen had chicken pocks I was gutted. I am very close to my Mum and go every weekend. I have never had them and it is supposed to be dangerous to people who have asthma so I have had to stay away. (I am back today though!! lol)

Martin has been busy in our garden all weekend so I have been sat crafting. My Mum's Friend at work is getting married at the beginning of September so I have started to make some cards for orders. Her colour is purple so I thought the Bo Bunny Peacock papers were great to use.

It's really hard to make different cards for weddings because I only have a couple of wedding stamps so my favourite crafty Auntie lent me some of her stash to make different cards. I have been busy and made 4 cards in total, but here is my first. I love this one.

I made my own swirl with a viva pearl pen and added some flowers which I purchased some time ago at the Craft Den. I also added a couple of pins and a congratulations sentiment. I used the WOJ sitting willow on the matching swing - love it! I coloured her with my copics and added stickles.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Back from Honeymoon!

We arrived back yesterday evening from our honeymoon. We had a really good time and I am so sad it is now all over - the wedding and the honeymoon! They have both come and gone so quickly.

Here are a couple of photos of me & Martin on honeymoon

I will hopefully be back with some crafty makes soon after I have done all the washing!!!
