Christmas Shepherd

I love Christmas and feel that those who say that it’s mainly for the children are missing out!  I make lads of Christmas cards each year but I do like sending ones which have a reference to the ‘reason for the season’.

I made this Christmas card using a rubber stamped image coloured with Promarkers and a sentiment stamp from the same set.  I bought the set for last Christmas but didn’t get around to using it.  Having see the stamped results, I think I’ll be making a few of these this year.

We have always had labradors 2 yellow ones and now a black lab.  My younger son calls yellow labs “white chocolate labradors”, which I think is a much better name.  So here is a card with 2 of these wonderful dogs in decoupage.  I think this might find it’s way to my husband for his next birthday.

I have had the die-cut sheet for such a long time that I don’t even remember who produced the kit!

May your dreams have wings…


I am on a bit of a roll at the moment and managing to post every day.  Today’s creation is a card made with a Saturated Canary image.  The backing papers are various (non-matching) bits from my stash and the sentiment is from Hunkydory.

Steampunk birthday

I love this sassy steampunk image from Kenny K and have used it a few times for cards now.  Today I have mounted it onto a mat cut with my favourite Spellbinders die and then onto a kraft card.  The sentiment is from Docrafts Wellington collection and the gems are from my stash.  Red is my favourite colour and I love this combination with brown/kraft.

Almost at another birthday

One thing with having 3 children is that there always seems to be a birthday coming!  For child number two, whose birthday is in September, I have coloured a Saturated Canary digistamp with Promarkers and made it into a card using papers from a Papermania capsule collection.  I ran the yellow paper through a Crafts-too embossing folder to reflect the footballer image.  The sentiment is from My Paper Stash and the glittery peel-offs are from my stash.
