Finally adding my last Christmas cards!


I wasn't sure whether to add these cards or not, seen as I didn't get round to putting them on here before Christmas. But I thought I might as well, as I have followed some sketches and they can still be entered for a few challenges. I've been feeling so miserable after our little Phoebe cat died just before Christmas I've not really been in the mood for celebrating, but the boys have still had fun.

1st card - Image is a High Hopes stamp (stamped for me by the lovely Squirrel), coloured with promarkers with added glamour dust. The papers are MME, cardstock is DCWV, ribbon from stash and the sentiment is a Pink Petticoat download.

2nd card - Image was a fab freebie from Pollycraft, coloured with promarkers with glamour dust and sakura clear glitter pen. I tried to do a bit of a night sky effect by colouring with lots of different grey shades and then using the blender pen over them - not sure if it really worked! The gorgeous bright papers were sent to me by Donna from Donna's Den. DCWV cardstock, ribbon from stash, sentiment downloaded from Pink Petticoat. The snowflakes were cut with the Cuttlebug icicle die, then lightly inked with fired brick distress ink and then added a little sakura clear glitter pen and a card candy dot.





3rd card - Large 8 x 8 card blank. Image from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers with glamour dust 'snow'. Shimmery blue cardstock from stash, pink cardstock is coredinations. Papers are MME, snowflake cut with the Cuttlebug icicle die (again!) with a blingy gem centre, Pink Petticoat sentiment (again!), and some tiny pink pearls to finish. I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers for this one but didn't upload it in time to enter!



I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
