Sweet Pea Stamp Fairy of the Night and a sparkly blue chrissy card

This gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamp is called 'Fairy of the Night', I coloured her in using my promarkers in soft and subtle colours as I felt she seemed almost fragile. I used the blues, purples, pinks and pale oranges of the early morning. I coupled her with an offset oval sizzix die cut, some sheer ribbon with embossed stars, some tiny flower, circle, snowflake(large) and heart brads and a gorgeous light amber gem.

I think she turned out quite surreal.

Uh oh another calendar card

This cute little image is another squiggles and is called gingerbread girl. I have even made a box for this calendar card. I know what was I thinking just make more work for myself, but I felt they really needed a little extra packaging, not just an envelope.
I have coloured this with my promarkers and have punched out flowers, diecuts, used pretty red gems and glitter. The sentiment circle is a LOTV.

A cute little mousy card

Just a Quicky, this card is made mainly from co-ordinations paper, I have cut out some 'marianne' swirly flowers and have roughed up all the edges.
I used promarkers to colour the image and used a piece of my fancy ribbon, I don't use this very often heehee.

Gorjuss birthday card inspired by a song

Hallo everyone, something a little different today, not christmassy for a change although there may be a chance to add some more later.  I have coloured this 'gorjuss' with my promarkers and have followed an old sketch from the sugar bowl.  I used a pretty magnolia bling and some punched out leaves for embellies and added a wee tibetan silver star.

The 'make a wish' is obviously because of the star and this is a birthday card for a friend's daughter.
The papers are some freebies from a magazine that I bought ages ago and they have been lurking in my paper cupboard all this time, terrible I know, but we are all guilty of stashing stash and not using it. ho hum.

I am entering this card into
CES ch 60 - Entertain Us! Song or Film (When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are) sorry got carried away there, but you get the gist.
