Sweet Stampin DT Card - A Recipe

Yay, is saturday and this is preposted as tomorrow morning were off to Heathrow to catch our plane. So in the meanwhile I'll leave you with this weeks card for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin. This week we have a recipe and would like to see "3 Papers, 2 Embellishments & 1 image". I have used James from LOTV and coloured him with Copics, White inessential pen and Crystal Stickles. The papers are MME and have used a green Viva Pearl Pen in the corners. Please do take a look at what other gorgeous creations the rest of the team have made, all so talented!

I don't know whether I'll get any computer time now. Still not finished the packing and a million and one things to do today. So I will wish you all a very "MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR". Were back on the 29th but then going to family over the new year so it looks like I'll be away for a few weeks.
I want to thankyou all for your continued support and its peeps like you that making crafting a pleasure.
So I'm signing off now (though may try and do a sneaky little hop later) and see you again 2011.

Love to all and enjoy the festive season.

Christmas Kitties!!

(Click photo for a clearer picture)
Hello again, managed to find the time to make another card and I think this image is so cute. Its another from MagicMoonlight. I've made a 5 x 5 for a change and rather pleased how its turned out as I was just doing my own thing. The backing paper is the MME Signature Christmas Pad. I've added lots of Stickles, distressed the papers with the MM Distressing Tool and glossed the leaves on the holly. Again used my MM Slice to cut out the dotty paper. Think the "Merry Christmas" sentiment is Magnolia and the Christmas Circle Stamp is Inkadinado. I've had this set for many years and it always comes out for my crimbo cards.

Heres a list of challenges;
Lollipop Crafts - Welcome Winter
City Crafter - Let It Snow
ASFOS - Christmas Cards
PaperPlaytime - Snowflakes (backing paper)
Crazy Challenge - All I Want for Xmas is You
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Holiday Greetings
Pear Tree Designs - Winter Wonderland
Cutie Sunday - Red/Green
PaperCutz - 2 Patterened Papers, Any Colour
All That Scraps - Snowflakes (backing paper)
Stampavie - Snowflakes/Snow

I've so much to do over the next few days. Today I've got to make a start on packing. Bikini's and sunscreen don't feel right with the weather were having but I'm sure once I get going, holiday mode will kick in. A few more DT cards to make too, eek- feeling the pressure now!
Hope everyone's well and hope to get another card or 2 posted before I go away.

Have a great day!!

Finally a Card!!

Finally a card from me. We've about 6 inches of snow. The kids are off though we are still have issues with Daniels school and he is off as we've chose to take him out for the moment till they sort out their teaching methods. Hubby at home and an internet connection when my laptop chooses!!!
Anyway, a christmas card using my MM Slice. Bought the magnetic pad with I just love. I'd already stamped Tilda and coloured her with Promarkers but it looked bare so using my slice helped fill in the gaps. I don't know what the corner stamps are but I stickled all the berries. Made the bow using the "Bow Easy" and a White Sakura Pen dotted over the Letters.
Not long now till my holiday and what with the weather, packing to do, kids at home and my internet playing up I'm not sure how often I'm going to be able to craft now. I'll be back tomorrow with my LOTV Dt Card and will craft and blog hop when I can.
Well I hope your enjoying the snow. Looks like we could be in for a night of it here in the SouthEast. I could sit at the window all night just watching it!!!

Heres a list of challenges and fingers crossed back tomorrow with another card;

Paper Sundaes - Adorn Those Corners
ABC Christmas Challenge - Yuletide ((red/green & holly and berries)
A Crafty Little Place - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - Anything Goes
Ladybugs Crafts Ink - Colour Wheel (red/green)
