Season's Greetings

Managed to find some time in creating a card for Birdie Brown's challenge where two freebies were given and I hcose to play with Just for You.

I chose to use the following sketch from Created with Love Challenges where it was flipped over. Papers are DCWV The Xmas stack and sentiment is from Hampton Art. I punched a snowflake and added an adhesived pearl on it. Ribbon is from stash and picture was both colored with prismacolor pencils and copics.

Happy Birthday to me


Today is my birthday and I made this for myself since I love the image and never do any card for myself! I also wanted to include a Xmas sentiment to start the Xmas celebrations, feels like Santa brought this especially for me :-)

I used the sketch from 365 Cards and used the image from Pixie Dust Studio that she generously provided as a freebie on her Facebook! Bic markers were used to color the image.

It's the most wonderful time of the year

Christmas is around the corner and people are starting to buy in their Xmas presents. We are still only in November and the radio is playing Xmas music!!! Personally, I find that it's tad too early for Xmas music, I would prefer the songs in December...What do you think?

Today, I have used the sketch here and used Doodle Pantry's birdie image:

Can't Bear Without You


It seems that Christmas is coming around really fast this year and I'm trying to make some cards to send overseas. I wanted to break from this routine by making this card for one of my friends whose hubby is in Iraq right now. It's very difficult for her to be without him especially with Remembrance Day coming up this weekend. Her dad was in the forces too and she can't help remember him.

I have used the Spellbinders Classic Squares to cut the image after I have colored it with Prismacolored pencils. I then matted it over some Pink Cardstock, layered it over some patterned papers after I have placed down a strip of punched border. I then stamped the sentiment in Black Tsukineko Memento Ink and popped it with some Pop Dots.
