Merry Christmas!

Hello one and all!

Hope you are all with those you love this festive season! Seeing as I have given these to friends and family, I thought I would share the little easel cards that I made this year - plenty of Copics were used in the making of this production!! The papers are a mix of Cosmo Cricket and Prima, and Dream Street. The stamps are the friendship jar collection from Papertrey Ink. I love these stamps and don't use them often enough!

Have a wonderful Christmas, and see you in 2012. Kx

The Paperlane Challenge - Unconventional Christmas Colours

Hello All! A really quick post from me today! This is the card that I have made for the 6th The Paperlane Challenge. This one is all about 'Unconventional Christmas Colours', and I really enjoyed playing!

I chose the palette of light fawn and pink, with lots of white. This was inspired by the sentiment ribbon and the small smowflake that you can see! I have seen a lot of decorative snowflakes used around blogland, so I thought I'd give it a go! Gotta love B and Q - the snowflakes were on 3 for 2!! I got a bit waylayed when I should have been buying paint!! Lol!
The sentiment ribbon is from American Crafts. There is no design paper on this card, I used some Basic Grey Christmas stamps to make the paper to match the colours I needed. The cute Nellie Snellen image has been coloured with my trusty Copics!

Here is a close up of the image and details. I love me bit of sparkle!!

Thanks for looking! Kxx
