Lilli Of the Valley DT Card

Hello everyone. Sorry for my absence. My stash is all tucked away so this will be my last piece till the new year.
This week at Lilli Of The Valley, we would like to see a New Year Card. I decided to go one step further and make a calender card. The papers and ickle birdies are Magnolia, coloured with Copics and have cut the year on my MM Slice. The challenge runs for 2 weeks.
Sorry for the rush post, not enough time to see what challenges are out there. I'm a busy bee today.
I'd like to Wish you all a very "Merry Christmas" and a very Happy New Year!
Have lots of fun over the festivities and hope Santa brings you want you want.

Take Care

Multi Challenge Easel Card


Boy is it cold outside and down to -5 on the school run. Way too cold to be going out today so gonna get the house in order and wrap some pressies then hopefully find a slot for an hours crafting, had no time over last few weeks. Christmas sure is a busy time for all.


I coloured this gorgeous Magnolia image a few weeks ago, just not found any time to do anything with it. Coloured with Copics and Derwent Colorsoft, I chose to do another easel as these are my favourite and took the sketch from this weeks Friday Sketchers. Papers are BG and Magnolia. Made a scroll with a scrap of paper and ditressed the edges and added Stickles. MS Border Punch down the side with a trim of lace. A mix of embellishments, and lots of stickles and for once I remembered to use one of my many charms, I like the Christmas Tree!

And what with it being Christmas, this card meets Lots of challenges


Well I hope you are all organised for Christmas. Only a few day before the children break so I'm gonna be a busy bee over the next few days.
Take Care and Thanks For Looking!

WOJ and other challenges!

I have not entered a WOJ challenge for a very long time, but after receiving my new stamps I just had to play along with this weeks sketch. Think this is one of my favourite christmas stamps right now. I had so much fun colouring it. Last night I stamped some images and had a few hours just colouring. I love using my Copics but adding Pencil to them really makes a difference so I used Copics and a Mix of Prisma's and Derwent Coloursoft, blending with Sansador. Just love the overall effect. A little more time consuming but worth the effort imo.
The papers are BG Eskimo Kisses and the Sentiment is also WOJ. The flowers have sparkle and I have used a red Spica Pen for the baubles on the tree (not showing very well).

This card also fits in with a few other challenges and alot are chistmas themed so no surprises there!

Here are the other challenges, a great mix and I had alotta fun;


Taken a few piccies. The sun is shining today but I think it may be a bit too bright - LOL
Thanks for looking, the weekend is here, Christmas Tree going up tomorrow and I really need to get prepared for Christmas. Coming round way to quick again.
Have a great weekend and thanks for taking the time to have a look at my card!

Multi Challenge Card


I made an A5 card for a change as the die was so large. This is the Magnolia image I coloured the other week, she is so pretty and so glad my mojo returned as just love her on this card. Coloured with Copics, Derwent Pencils and Stickles.
Also distressed the paper with Tims Tool and inked with a Cocoa Chalk Ink Pad.


Sorry about the terrible piccie, really dull here and the conservatory is normally the best place for light. It is so much prettier IRL. I followed the sketch at this weeks Sketch Saturday. The papers are a mix of BG and Fancy Pants and Chocolate Bazill cardstock I have added a glaze to the sledge though not picked up and White Flower Soft around her feet. The frame is Spellbinders and the sentiment is also Magnolia. Lace is from stash.
Now must get on with a few chores
Thanks for Looking and enjoy the rest of your week!
