Tweet Tweet & Hot Chocolate


Sketch Saturday

Another lovely sketch this week on Sketch Saturday, I really enjoy taking part in this challenge, and this week the DT have some beautiful creations for us to see. Click Here to go straight to the challenge.


At last the Tree is up and decorated, I began to think I would never manage it this year. I thought I had finished with Christmas Cards after I had sent the Magnolia Challenge card below to Donna, but what popped through my letter box on Saturday, this adorable Sugar Nellie Elizabeth Bell stamp from Funky Kits, well come on could you resist colouring her just once. She hs been coloured with Copics, and cut out with the New Nesties, the papers are My Minds Eye and I have tried to pick out all the colours in my colouring. Snowflakes are punched and scalloped edge is MSDP.




Magnolia Vs Stampavie


Its is another sketch from Donna this week on Magnolia Vs Stampavie, this is the last challenge for the year and will run until 4th January. There is another lovely prize of a set of Copics for the winner. So pop along and join in.



This really is the last Christmas Card (fingers crossed), cannot wait to get back to creating "normal" cards. My mind went blank when I first saw the sketch, and I really didn't know what I could put in the little circles, searched through my Magnolias and found this little bird who makes a perfect christmas Robin, and he fitted just right. He has again been coloured with Copics adde some Flowersoft to the bottom of the circle to give the impression of snow. Papers are Basic Grey, Flower from Prima and the Let It Snow sentiment is a Sizzix Die.

That card is so great that I just needed to comment. I use to be an annonymous reader, but I fell in love with your card and thought it would be nice to let you know. It's not the only card of yours that I love but this one is just what I needed to see today.
