Joint effort

This card was a joint effort by my husband and me. I was watching Bev's video's for colouring and my husband was watching over my shoulder!! He decided that he wanted to have a go and this is the very excellent result. He used Spectrum noirs, pencils and spirit, and chalks. I will be leaving him with some more stamped images to colour for me:)
I made it into a card for his mom, using Nitwits papers and Marianne dies (cut with white card and embossed with WOW powder in pepper) which gives a lovely cast iron look.

Glitter geeks

I have made a card for this weeks GlitterGeeks - Let it snow
Now unfortunately my card is in the hands of the post office/correos winging it's way to Spain, so I can't show my card here yet as I don't want to spoil the surprise.
I have uploaded my card to my picassa album which you can view (it's your card Jan so don't look!) HERE
I will add the card here once it is received :)

Edit 22/01/12. This card finally made it early January :(

Christmas Glitter

Woohoo I've got the afternoon off work :) and I've still got another day (or 2 half days) to take before Christmas.
Here are 2 cards that I've just made up. The images and backing paper are from Nitwits - joyful hearts. The images were imported into Draw x4 and I added the shadows.
The first card has double sided tape and glitter added, the second one I edged with a versamark pad and used gold twinkle embossing powder and hand wrote the greeting.
I have made these cards for cupcake Craft Challenge - Don't look at the light

I don't do decoupage

Normally I don't do decoupage lol.
But I recently bought 'the big one' by la pashe, which is crammed with loads of stuff from their various ranges and thought I'd give it a try. I have to admit I quite enjoyed doing these 3 :)

Twinkle twinkle

I had a reorganisation last night of the cards I have made for the fayre next week and realised how short I was of Christmas cards so thought I'd better crack on :)
These were inspired by this site No Time To Stamp
I love how easy these were to put together.
The sentiment was stamped direct onto the card and embossed. The image was stamped onto card and embossed. papers and a strip of mirri/glitter card glued to the card then the image was mounted on foam pads. Easy peasy :)

Image - frosty trees - elusive images
Sentiment - HOTV
embossing powders - silver sparkle, gold sparkle and holly green - WOW
papers - jolly happy christmas - dovecraft. santas on his way - foresver friends
