Monochrome madness PTW

The challenge this week is to use only one colour on your project, you can use varying shades of one colour. I used a flourish stamp i got from a craft fair don't know the make. i finally managed to get my hands on that Santa stamp so used that for the first time, finished off with ribbon & flower from my stash. thanks for looking.

sitting tilda

OMG whats up with me 2 posts in one day, that's just not like me must be on a roll. Thought I'd have a go of making a card using my cricut which I've not used it in so long(kept forgetting to pick up some cutting mats) Used the home accents cart for this one. I'm not too sure about it i think it could do with something else but don't know what, what do you think. Thanks for looking shell x

Hubby's Card at Last

I have struggled to make this one every time i started it, it looked too girlie. Mrs j answered my last post and suggested i used Santa suit Lola i had forgotten all about her, this is what i came up with.

The papers are from Summer Driggs, the image is Lola occasions from pink petticoat coloured with watercolour pencils and pro markers, i cut some nestie shapes and covered them with a versamark ink pad then clear embossing powder, sentiment done on comp. do you think its OK? still a little unsure but gonna give it to him anyway.

I've got my works Christmas night out to night, Hopefully it'll put me in the Christmas mood, I dont know what is wrong with me this year maybe it's because the boys are growing up but i cant get in the mood, my tree is still in the loft. i may put it up over the weekend.

hope you all have a great day

pink petticoat comp entry

Here is my entry to Liz's comp at pink petticoat. The prize is a slice wow I'd love to win this, i made this card using the new mini download little swirls. I think this is my fave paper collection yet it will be useful all year round. I made it using the positive and negative in the same colour, the tree was made by doing some t bag folding which i learnt to do on Monday at a card club i joined, never ever done any before but thought it looked great on this card shape which is also new to me, tree then matted onto nesties. hope you like it and good luck to everyone who entered.

Christmas candles

I just thought i'd show you a few candles i stamped on the other day, they are for a friend at work to give to her son and daughter the are both having their first christmas in new homes so on the back i have put their names, year and address on as that is what she asked for. i enjoy doing these and have another order for 8 of them. only problem is i'm finding it really hard to track plain candles down.
