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!
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.
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.
I have created a scrapbook page for today’s DT project. The Creative Moments challenge this fortnight is sponsored by QKR and the theme is back to school. I chose these photographs from when my daughter started school.
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.
