Kraft and Medium Blue

My plans to see the hobbit tonight were somewhat waylaid, so I thought I might as well use the time productively and get another card in. Maybe if the nausea holds off a while longer, I'll go nuts and do another after this.

I used a freebie image, from Blackberry Jelly and coloured it in shades of blue, before adding glitter to the balls. I used paper from papermania's happy day set and layered everything up on craft card. The sentiment is again, computer generated.

Jingle Bell Rock

Another xmas card today, this time with an image from Bugaboo. The challenge this week on Catch the Bug was for 'favourite christmas song' and well, mine is a toss up between Fairytale of New York or Jingle Bell Rock, so I've gone with Jingle Bell Rock and used this lovely image of DeDe, coloured with promarkers.

I used paper from dovecraft (yes again, lol) and layered it on red card from papermill direct. Th sentiment is computer generated and I used snowflake embellishments and a few gems to finish it off.

I'm submitting this too:

Bear in Snow

Two cards in one day - wowza, been a while since that's happened! I'm sure it'd be three, but I really should go and make dinner after I post this one, lol!

I used the cute benson, from pollycraft for this card, coloured with promarkers and inked around him with blue ink, before adding glitter glue for a snow effect.

The paper is from dovecraft (it's possible I've been using it quite a bit since I bought it on Monday, but its just such a cute pack!) and the sentiment is computer generated. I embellished with just a few little gems.

Frohe Festtage!

I picked a lovely image from Angel's Landing for my card today, added the sentiment around it on the computer and printed and coloured it with my promarkers. The paper is from dovecraft, layered on dark green card from papermill direct. And I used twine and pearls to embellish.

Seasons Greetings, For A Special Mum

An important holiday card today... for my Mum.

My Mum loves reindeers - seriously, you have no idea how many reindeers are in this house... pictures, ornaments etc. And they triple at this time of year, lol! So that I'd use a reindeer image was a no brainer and I picked this adorable little image from Whimsie Doodle and added a sentiment around it, using the computer before printing and colouring with my promarkers.

The paper is from dovecraft, layered on red card from the papermill. I added, red twine, gems and a charm (another freebie) for embellishment.

Westie in a Stocking

This is probably the 3rd of 4th card I've made for a challenge this month and the only one I've actually remembered to post so far, lol!

I used the lovely westie in a stocking image from Delicious Doodles - I love this image, as I actually have a westie, so I always think of him when I use it! I coloured him with promarkers and mounted him on a red card base. The papers are from Dovecraft's Back to Basics Christmas paper pack - and I used gems, twine and a lovely little freebie charm I got in card making and papercraft to embellish.
