Good afternoon, it's not 4.30pm yet and the light is going already- that tells me it won't be long before the clocks go back and it's dark by this time- which means Christmas isn't too far away. I'm woefully behind on my Christmas cards this year, haven't had much inclination to make anything apart from DT committments so I'm trying to shake myself out of it and get cracking on the Christmas stuff. I made a fairly quick card using two Lavinia stamps and distress ink. I die cut a circle from a square of copy paper , used the square to mask my white cardstock panel and inked up through the hole in the middle, removed the paper frame and stamped Rue using black Versafine Clair ink. I then covered the inky circle with my circle of copy paper and stamped around the edge with the little star stampin various shades of blue and silver. I made sure thiink was all dry (been caught out before!) then stamped and heat embossed the white stars. I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the fairy and vine and stamped the 'joy' sentiment. The second card is one of a batch I made last year and never got around to sharing- same stamps, a die cut branch and a little bling.

I used a sweet digi from Hetty Clare, coloured with Copic markers. The papers are from Polkadoodles cut with stitched dies and layered onto kraft card, I found the little wooden button in a pot of bits and bobs lurking on my desk. I added som faux stitching and stamped sentiment to finish.
I'm spending the rest of the weekend over at my son's house- babysitting my two youngest granddaughters while he takes my DIL away for a weekend of spoiling as a birthday treat. I'm looking forward to spending the time with the little ones....but not to the very early start tomorrow morning- 2 year old Charlotte is a very early riser!!! At least it's only one night....
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend whatever you're up to.

so I picked the theme of 'girly' for the DT to use- definitely spoilt for choice with so many sweet images to choose from.
The image I've used is Giselle (thank you Paper Shelter), this pretty image comes with papers and a precoloured version as well the uncoloured version I used, I really fancied colouring this one!
I used my copic markers for colouring then die cut the image with a sticthed circle die leaving her feet over the edge, I used a stencil and distress ink for the background .
The papers I used are Life of The Party (MME) the numbers sentiment letters are die cut individually - twice once from the pinkish card and once from grey card to add a shadow.
Please hop over and take a look at the lovely creations from the rest of the team- remember the theme is optional if you want to play along.
Thanks for visiting
have a happy weekend

Here is this month's sketch
The sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Sentiments, I was given this cute digi to use, coloured it with Copics and paper-pieced the top of the umbrella. I printed the owl a second time coloured and cut out just his body and the wing holding the umbrella and attached it to the main image with silicone glue for a little dimension, added glossy accents to the rain drops. Papers are scraps from stash, and a stamped sentiment.
Thanks for visiting
