A Little Thank You Fairy

Good Evening crafty friends.  Hope you had a lovely Christmas.  We did.  My lad Brandon said it was his Best Christmas Ever!!  I was poorly the next day though as I have somehow have caught a cold :(

I was going to share another Christmas card but thought a thank you card would be more appropriate now that the big day is out the way....


The sweet fairy is from All Dressed Up and I have coloured her in with ProMarkers.  The papers are free from a magazine.  I wanted to use these as the colours are different from what I usually work with and I like how this has turned out.  Those flowers were also part of the free papers.  I glued them onto card to give them strength, then cut them out!  The ribbon is from the ribbon girl and everything else is from my stash.

Happy Snowman

Good morning crafty friends.  Hope you are well today and keeping warm.

I have another Snowman card to share....


I love using this particular Snowman from Pink Gem Designs and he is called Snowflake Chilly.  I have coloured him in with ProMarkers.  My dies are Memory Box, papers are LOTV.  I have computer generated the sentiment.  I printed a whole sheet of the sentiment and used them on the majority of my cards.  So cost effective.  Gems are from the works and everything else is from my stash.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Good afternoon Crafty Friends.  Hope you are all well today.

My lovely Son Brandon came back from his School trip yesterday.  He was there for 2 nights and 3 days.  First time ever he has spent that long away from me.  He has lost his voice and I'm not sure if it is from shouting so loudly with the other kids or a cold as he did have one when he left.  I put him to bed at 9pm last night and as soon as his head hit the pillow he was gone.  He did say he had a nice time though but with him being a lad, he doesn't say much lol.

Anyhow enough waffling on, here is my card...



I'm pretty sure that some of you will have this stamp and die set from Simply Cardmaking and Papercrafts.  My fella came home with these for me and I love it.  I die cut the sledge with red and brown card.  I stamped the reindeers and added silver twine to them as their reins and then stamped the stars underneath.  Santa is stamped and coloured with ProMarkers.  The sentiment is also part of the set.  The papers are LOTV NitWits and everything else is from my stash.

Another card completed for Christmas!!!
