This is the first time I have entered this challenge and it was a pleasure as it was to follow this sketch.
Image created with one of the new lili of the valley christmas stamps. Papers are My Minds Eye Merry Days of Christmas and sentiment is K and Co peppermint twist which matches these papers perfectly (although the colours on the photo don't seem right)
Snowflakes are spellbinders die.

This card was made with stamps from the stamps from the lapashe rang 'flippin men' - It takes me back to My childhood when we lived in a colliery house and bathed in a tin bath infront of the fire and had no inside loo!! -Oh Happy Days!!

Image coloured with promarkers and copics.

Made these three cards this week - lili of the valley images are my favourites at the moment. One wedding was all co-ordinated in cream/brown and the other was teal - hence these two. The other card is a ruby wedding card cut on the cricut with celebrations cart - split and tiers added to make it look more like a wedding cake.

Background paper created on computer (great when nothing else will do)


another lovely image from Lili of the Valley - papers are making memories -adage ticket is Tim Holtz, buttons and string from stash.

marianne's ribbon border punch

Image is lili of the valley again, coloured with promarkers - paper came free with magazine this month - is my minds eye - ribbon threaded through new marianne's border punch - is embossed but not showing up very well on the photo


This card was made for a Sunderland Football fan who is celebrating his three score years and 10 and 10 more this weekend. Tomorrow is also my own mother's 80th birthday. This makes me feel quite middle aged!!
Football frame, shirt and boot all cut on cricut with soccer cartridge. Shirt was cut twice and then sliced to make stripes (as authentic as possible) Numerals were chipboard coloured with promarkers and glittered with diamond stickle glitter glue.
