Once upon a time and Blue Christmas


A CARD FOR A CHILD

Wow talk about co-incidence I was asked to make a fairytale card for a friends little girl, this fits the bill perfectly with our challenge this week on < A Spoonful of Sugar


This may be a quick post not sure how long the internet is going to let me have access for today, I couldn't get access to the net until 5.30 this evening, but I understand there are a lot of you out there having the same problem.

I am not sure if I like this card not really my sort of thing but I stuck to the brief I was given by my friend for her daughters brithday card. The fairytale castle was cut out three times with a sizzix die then 3d with Pinflair glue gel, if you havn't tried this magic glue I recommend it, it sticks anything. The Dragon and Knight stamp are by High Hopes from Silly Monkeys, and the little princess is a Whipper Snapper stamp, all have been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's, they have also been cut out and 3d with the above glue gel as have the clouds which are from a Magnolia background stamp. The sentiment is another High Hopes stamp.




WHIFF OF JOY - LIZZIE WITH MUFF



Another card for fun cannot stop playing with these gorgious new WOJ stamps. I cannot remember where I got the sketch for this card, but I love it and have used it quite a few times, the DP are all Basic Grey Lily Kate, must order another pad of these gorgious papers. Lizzie has been coloured with Distress inks, I have been asked what colours I use so will try to remember to name them everytime, The inks are Tim Holtz Tattered Rose, Faded Jeans, Antique Linen and Tea Dye, her fur has been dusted with Galmour Dust. The flowers are from stash as is ribbon, leaves were punched with Ash Branch punch.
