My favourite 5..ish creations of 2013...

As if it wasn't hard enough choosing 5 Christmas cards, I now have to choose 5 others....well not sure if I can stick to 5!!

Pop over to Debby's blog to find out all the details on what to do to enter her challenge...

 This has to be one of my the stamp, papers and the die...

This was a special card I made for a new baby which turned out well considering I don't make many baby cards.

I love this sketch and I do use it lots but I love these colours....

These Lili of the Valley stamps are just perfect for a quick effective too...

I just love these little fairies and this card took me ages but another one I am pleased with...

This was something different which involved no colouring, just sponging with distress inks...

I was so chuffed with this card as I don't really do digis, not that I don't like them...printer isn't the best, but I think it turned out well...

I hope you like my selection of my favourites from 2013!!

Happy New Year everybody!!

Peek-a-boo birthday...

Hey everybody...hope you have all had a fabby Christmas!!

So this is my first post on my new laptop, a new photo editor programme too so I am still trying to figure that out hence the rubbishy watermark....the colours may need tweeked a bit too but I am practising!!

I was beginning to have withdrawal symptoms with no pc which meant I was really crafting either so this is also the first card I have made in a few weeks.  The stamp is Peek-a-boo birthday from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with copics.  The digi papers are from the Sweet Shoppe.  The flowers have been cut using my die-namics layered rose die.  I added some glitter and gems to finish....hope you kike it!!

Charisma Cardz - anything goes
