Did you know !?

Hi all,
I was really excited when I popped into Sirstampalot Tuesday and found out that the new Christmas Magnolias where in stock.
I did wonder last year why did Magnolia launch a few stamps with the name Lucia in, well I had a look on the internet and lo and behold did you know that on December the 13th they celebrate St Lucia, she is the bringer of the light and to be chosen to play her is an honor. It is customary for the girl playing St Lucia to where a white dress with a red sash and to have a crown of candles on her head. St Lucia has hand maids and they carry either a single candle or a star on a stick. So after my ahhhhhh moment I decided I would stick to tradition when I coloured her in.

I used October Afternoon paper sing the carols
Hero Arts prisma glitter
Making memories Vintage findings gem pins
Spellbinders nestablilites labels eleven
Tilda as Lucia magnolia stamp
Copics I used are
For the hair E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
For shading on dress C3, C1
Reds R27, R24, R22, R20
Skin E02, E00, E000, E0000 and R20 for blush

I just had to have Sneaky Tilda she reminded me of when I was younger and I used to get caught looking at my presents trying to work out what they were before I opened them!!

For this card I used Sneaky Tilda Magnolia stamp
Nitwits Deer Friends paper - Stripe Red and Merry White
Martha Stewart Doily Punch
For the copics I used
Blues are B97. B95, B93, B91
Hair, Trousers E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Skin E02, E00, E000, \E0000 and R20 for blush
I am working on my photography skills but I think you will probably see better photos at the Sirstampalot gallery!!!!!

New home

Hi all,
Its official I think Dr Evil has stolen my mojo !!?
This card has been on my worktop for a week and the elements have been moved around and the base card has been changed soooooo  many times.
It is a new home card, but due to the enormous levels of stress my friends have gone through with this move I stuck with a thinking of you sentiment (which if you use a magnifying glass you might spot on the button I made from shrink plastic thank you for the inspiration Chris and Lou :)
All of the above is pretty much an explanation of why this card ended up being so simple.
Can I just say a huge congratulations to Louise for being published in this months Craft Stamper I love your work Louise this is well deserved I can't wait to pick my copy up tomorrow from sirstampalot :)

The stamps I used are Guitar Edwin
Martha Stewart Botanical Punch
Hero Arts lace ribbon
Glossy Accents
Prisma Glitter
The copics I used are for the skin E02, E00, E000, E0000 and for the blush R20
Edwin tie and trousers E59, E57, E55 and for Edwins guitar and Tildas hair E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
and finally for the blues B02, B01, B00, B000.

What else can you do with A Mummy!!?

This is just a quick post because this is a very basic card, a friend of mine has to go for an opertation on her shoulder and as we both have the same wicked sense of humour I altered a Halloween stamp into a get well soon  :)

The stamp I used is Mummy Edwin
I used Labels two Nestie, and the paper is Bo Bunny Alissa Love You.
I coloured with copics C5, C3, C1, E02, E00, and for the pink slippers R85, R83, R81.
I used a flower punch and cut the petals off to get the bunny ears.
I coloured the edge of the sentiment with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, and I am sorry before I entered the world of blog land, and someone mentioned don't throw out all your packaging,  I took all my stamps out of their packet and didn't make a note of what the sentiment stamps were!
Hope you like it :)
