3 cards in 1 post....

Well what is this snow like...I spent nearly all day yesterday clearing I felt like I had been in the ring with Mike Tyson...I am all sore and achy!! Anyway I had kind of started these yesterday but finished them today. The first card I thought would be fun to do....I have no idea where I got the sentiment stamp, the papers are Colourful Christmas from MME, I added some snowflakes and glitter.....easy peasy. I have entered this card in the following challenges.

charisma - sketch
The Creative Cottage - non traditional colours
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes
Totally Stampalicious - anything goes

The second card I have made using Midnight Frost papers from Bo Bunny...they are really beautiful IRL. The image is from CC Designs which I coloured with copics and to give Emma's apron a see through look, I stamped it again onto vellum and layered it under the ribbon. I punched some snowflakes with the Martha Stewart snowflake punches and added some glitter. This card has been entered in the following challenges.

Cupcake - light it up
Papertake Weekly - sketch
ABC christmas Challenge - Y - Yuletide
Cute Card Thursday - The blues
Paper cutz - 2 papers
Paperplay - monochrome

Oh...this took me a few attempts at colouring this image as I wasn't happy with it. Originally I wanted to do blue and pink but it didn't look right, then I tried blue and red and that didn't look right either so I finally settled for this....I am much happier with this one. The image is Siku and Shiya from Mo Manning which I coloured with copics, I added white glitter on the furry parts of their jackets. The papers are Basic Grey Figgy which I thought looked good with the image. I am waiting on the Eskimo Kisses papers coming along with some other stuff but due to the weather not sure when they will come so decided just to go with these ones. I punched some snowflakes and added glitter. I have entered the following challenges.

Simon Says Stamp - sketch
Stampavie - snow/snowflakes
By the cute and Girly - children
DP2 - glitz & glimmer
Totally Papercrafts - xmas punches
Stamp Something - holiday colours
Stamps R Us - holidays
OSCC - christmas cuties
Stamp & Create - tis the season

The Second card is very sweet - I love the CC design stamps, and the Mo Manning stamp is simply brill - You've been a busy lady! No wonder your aching all over - time for a hot choc and a mooch around your craft stash to put you right again!

Have a lovely weekend
