Yet another christmas card !!!

Well I finally got a chance to finish my second christmas card last night.
I just had to wait for the glossy accents to dry before I could take a photo, have you ever thought its dry enough to take a photo and watched in horror as your glossy accents slumps down the page, I only made that mistake once :)

I used a new camera which I think has taken better photos, but I think it has washed the colours out a little, I cant win.

Well I hope you like it I used:
Stamp:Tilda hanging ornaments
paper: Magnolia Vintage Christmas Red Ornament
Glossy Accents
Martha Stewart Vintage Lace punch around the page set
The copics I used are
For the reds: R29, R27, R24, R22
For the browns : E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
For the Skin and Blush: E02, E00, E000, E0000 and R20
The charm is from my stash.

Santa's Little Helper

Hi Guys,
I finally had time to sit and have a play with a couple of little cheeky stamps I bought a couple of weeks ago.
I love this little character I rarely buy Edwin but this one was just soooooo cute.
I liked him so much I even broke into my lace pack I have been stroking but not using :)
The stamps I used are Santa Edwin
glossy accents
The paper is Magnolia vintage christmas Ice Princess
To colour the paper behind the chair I used Distress ink Weathered Wood
Now for the copics
Blue/Greens: BG78, BG75, BG72
Browns: E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Skin: E02, E00, E000, E0000, R20
I also used Puffy Velvet for the fur trim on edwins hat and coat.
I hope you like it.

I'm Back

Hi fellow groovers,
I'm back......
Where have I been, well I have been working on a couple of projects for some of the girls which have taken up a little of my time !!!!
I gave Louise her little package today so I can finally reveal one of the projects, the other, well I will post that one when I know Chris has got it.
So what did I make for Louise...............

Ta dah

Louise loved the bed socks I made for Janice, so after my trip to Ally Pally for the Knit and Stitch show, I got the wool, so I have been knitting for the last couple of weeks.
Then of course I had to make the Sox Box to put them in :)

The stamps I used are:Tilda as santas little helper
The paper is: Kaiser Craft Snap Dragon
I also used the martha stewart Vintage Lace punch which if you squint you might see I used this around the edge of the box
I used Glossy accents on the wax seals on the pressies, and of course Hero Arts Prisma glitter.
The little bit of knitting I did on really, really, small needles and slid onto the cocktail sticks, so louise could get a little glimpse of what colour wool I used which was from the Sirdar Crofter range.
Now for the copics:
Purples: BV17, BV13, BV11
Greens: G24, G21, G20
Hair: E33, E31, E30
Tree bark:E44, E43, E42
Skin and Cheeks: E02, E00, E000, E0000, R20
everything of course available from sirstampalot

Well thats it for now,god it feels good to be back :)
