Kraft Red and White

After struggling to use the colours Red ,white and Kraft for the CAS Christmas card Challenge, I found myself making another card using it!
 I used a SSS stamp and a sentiment that says 'snowflakes are winters butterflies' and addition of a small gem and another card made !
Since coming back into blogland I have really struggled using what to me is the new blogger(I am such a dinosaur with IT) so I want to say a huge thank you to Michele Ferguson who took the time to face time me and help me understand where I was going wrong..thank you again! Now to see if it works again :)

Thanks for taking the time to look

Kraft,Red and White


 Loll over at the Cas Christmas Challenge has set us the task of making a card using Kraft,red and white and what a challenge it was for me I rarely use Kraft card !

In fact I had only one sheet of it in the house but thank you Loll for challenging me to try something different  and actually I quite liked the coulours when I had finished :)

I used the MFT merry christmas die and the snowflake Im sure is a old SU one but as I have grouped all of my snowflakes together Im not sure if it is??

I finished off the snowflake with some bling just because Christmas cards need a bit of bling to sparkle in the fairy lights :)

Thanks for taking the time to look

Over at the Cas Christmas Challenge we have been asked for Christmas tree and my one actually started off to be one for our foster baby's 2nd Christmas with us ....but for the life of me I couldnt find the sentiment that I wanted for him in my stash !so we went for the friends make the holidays ,as feel that i can make use it better with that sentiment.
The image is by Penny Black from the Holly Jolly set and after I coloured it in I just felt that it was a bit plain - which is unusual for me I am strictly a less is more person!
So I added polka dots to his scarf and gloves and then some red and gold stickles as baubles to the tree and of course perfect pearls for the snow. 

Thank you for taking the time to look

This  month over at the Cas Christmas Challenge ,the theme is the Twelve days of Christmas and I decided to use that famous Paper Smooches that I love so much and use the doves as the Two Turtle Doves in the song.There was only one dove and so had to try mirror stamping and had a few goes and decided these were the best of the bunch !

I used a pale blue  marker pen to highlight the top of the images and added a touch of wink of stella..... ,because well Christmas cards just call for a bit or sparkle!!! :)Then a few holly berrys to the leaves and it was done,apart from mounting it on a scrap of mirror card.

              Thank you for taking the time to look!

Hi there hope everyone is well and enjoying the Summer ,for Scotland it was looking not bad with plenty of sun until this week and itis now  back to rain again.Having a few wet eveninsg I was able to finally finish this card for the 
 CAS Christmas Card Challenge who asked for our card to be themed around the Nativity.

I love the Paper Smooches nativity stamp set but hadn't used the one above yet and Im really happy how it turned out....hoping you do to!.
(I dont know about you but its funny the things you struggle with when making a card and on this one it was the stripes on Josephs headdress they kept going wavy or maybe i just have a very shaky hand!:)
Thanks for taking the time to look

Merry Christmas

What a faff this card was !!!

 I decided to join in at the challenge over at  
Cas Christmas challenge which this month is for winter berries ,but if it could go wrong with this card it did.... and then I had decided that it was looking a bit plain so cut out a green mat and then I went and stuck it down without putting it on!!! 
oops...but it is done now and was intending to do it again (but layering up that die cut merry christmas from Clearly Besotted had me cross eyed the first time 
let alone the other three times I had to do it!) and to top it our wee man is teething at the moment so not getting a lot of time in the evening .Last week he got his first tooth then three days later another one,but he kindly was up in the evening but not through the night so I cant complain - except its cutting down the time I can make cards :)
Thanks for taking the time to look I really appreciate it.
