Christmas easel with pollycraft and papermania

This cute little image is from pollycraft, I used some snippets to make the crossways panels and also for the poinsettia.

So this is another christmas card for the pile and I used a papermania stamp for the sentiment and tag shape.
The image has been coloured with my promarkers.
I chalked the edges of the tag after I had used a deckle edge scissor to cut out the shape.
The large brad is DCWV.

forever friends

Forever Friends Teddy Bear with a beautiful heart to share. I have made this card using Stampin up paper and card, some silk flowers, ribbons, gems and Rub-ons.

This image has been coloured using my promarkers and was stamped directly only a die cut spellbinders shape.  I have added a beautiful large button and attached using hemp and a tibetan silver lock heart charm.

The rubon is from Kaisercraft and the ladybird is one that you can colour yourself to match your colour scheme.

Flying in with a Christmas Card, at last, I seem to have fallen behind with my christmas offerings, so must get back on track.  This is another pollycraft image, and I have coloured with my Stampin up pens this time.  The sentiment is a  bizzy becs and the papers are mainly scraps from the SU card and papers that i have been using recently.

A wee shot to show that I have decorated the inside of this card as well.

Sweet Strawberries and Butterflies

This cute little pollycraft girl has a basket full of scrummy strawberries. I have coloured with my promarkers and I have used some of my new forever friends baby papers to layer up and frame the image. The green paper with white butterflies is by Queen and Co. I have doodled around the edge of the image and coloured the butterfly with my Promarkers too.  I die cut some poinsettias and these were the ones that were left over from the christmas card in the next post. I cut them into leaf shapes and again doodled on the card, then attached them here and there and also some pretty buttons.
The 'you're so sweet' sentiment is a Stampin Up.
The inside is decorated using a freebie paper and a die cut oblong.  I have added a few gems to the frame to bling it up a little. Sorry no photos, I completely forgot to take a piccie of the inside.xx

Snow in April should i say august? cos i could do with a nanny mcphee right about now

well its finally here. The snow arrived just in time for the roof trusses (end of week) it had better melt in time, cos between this, the leaks in the ceilings, the drip buckets in every room. Well its a good thing we built the extension first thats all i can say, at least we have one dry roof.
So Easter in the snow, brrr chilly bunnies.
I do have a project for you today, this is my daughter tishys easter basket (right at the bottom of the picture overload), that I have made for our easter egg hunt. Two more to make, will I manage in time, between emptying buckets?  Lovely SU card again and punches and su ribbon, held together with some of the red double sided and some brads.

For less is more

Just a quicky for you all on this rainy sunday evening, I loved the colours so much on the LIM Challenge that I had to make a card almost immediately. I also had just received my wonderful win from Sir Stampalot, a huge jiffy bag full of goodies.
sentiment from Great impression and flowers from the rubber cafe. So perfect.
Used su markers for the flower and a whispers ink pad for the sentiment, lace from my stash.
