Photo from last post x

Just can not seem to keep up with a daily posting. Two cards to upload today - christmas again. How much christmas stuff dose a crafter need????? Loads lol.

The papermania bauble card is quick and easy. I used white bazzil textured card then inked the inside of folder and away you go. Just added glamour dust to the swirly bit, the base card l inked the same colour and then stamped with a gorgeous stamp it is a swirly snowflake from a set of stamps from elusive images a couple of years ago. The sentiment matches perfectly it is from a goody bag from craftwork cards l got ages ago.

The second card ... how sweet is Milton the bear in his santa hat. As soon as l saw this stamp l had to have it and l stamped him up straight away. Coloured with distress inks, lots of sparkle added, think l am going to send this card to Thank you for looking and for any comments you may like to leave x Susan x

Joined the GG challenge over on do crafts hosted by Irene. A lovely challenge - strawberries & cream or peached & cream, l came up with this creation but can't get on to do crafts to upload it. This is the first time l have used this stamp and decided to paper piece her dress with the strawberry paper by Magnolia, l also used a piece on left side of card. The other strawberry background l stamped using a WOJ strawberry stamp and a swirl then coloured, glittered and distressed. Not too sure on the card but it fits the challenge.

Hope you have all managed some craft time this weekend, take care x Susan x

What has your weather been like today??? Not too good here in Birkenshaw today - dull, showers and not too warm - perfect for tidying up a few crafty things. Decided to tidy some ribbons and did not realise how many pink ones l have. My craft table is now unusually tidy so will have to put that right and mess it up again or l won't be able to find anything.

The card.... l made this last night for my lads friend at school - Mel, she is 15 today and she loved the card. I used Kanban cake stamps from a set l bought a while ago and had not used, l coloured them with distress inks and added glamour dust and just kept it simple - l think they look ok and will be using them again soon. The papers and ribbon are the new stampin up colours that l bought in a share offer and l stamped her name from some CD stamps l bought years ago and again never used.

I think l should challenge myself to use something l have not used before each day and see how long it lasts for - could be a year or so lol...

Take care and happy crafting x Susan x

I was lucky to have a fairly relaxing weekend just pottering around and running kids to there various activities. The wind kept me indoors yesterday for a change. Another card to catch up with Snoflakes Christmas card challenge over on do crafts site. The stamp is a penny black coloured with H2 0's, sentiment stamp from butterfly kisses. The background has been through with cuttlebug with ink in the folder - l learnt this lovely effective technique last week (thanks Liz) and am sure l will be using it again. Nearly caught up so only 2 more christmas cards this week!!!

Hope you have all had a crafty weekend, thank you for popping in and for any comments you leave, x Susan x
