Too Cute Titania!!!

Having a bit of a mental block this evening so bear with me...went to work for a 2 1/2 hour shift and got home 6 1/2 hours later, got sooo sidetracked (working on rosters) didn't even get lunch (those of you who know me well, will understand how unlike me THAT is). Anyway, this is my latest christmas card, I am on a christmas binge and its all I make at present.

Sugar Nellies Titania has been coloured with my copics and prismas for a little highlight (still mastering these). I tried to be "crafty" and add a border around her but had a minor incident with said border that resulted in me having to cut her out competely. Dp I cannot for the life of me remember what it is but its really neat, added some of my new ribbon, some brads, pearls, flowers and a dinky little pin made by yours truely. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and I am also entering the following:

Crafty Emma - roses and ribbons

Secret Crafter - Spots and Stripes

Thats all from me I am gonna post this before I doze off.

Sweet Sweet Snowmen!!!

Another of my spending spree purchases. I love this Sugar Nellie Christmas Garland Stamp, these cuties have been coloured with my copics, then Dazzled with Stampin Ups Dazzling Diamond Dust. DP is Bo Bunny Blitzen Colection and sentiments are also from my latest spree - Holiday Postage Stamps from Whimsy Stamps (also dazzled to within an inch of their lives). Embellishments are allsorts found from rummaging thru my stash.

I followed the sketch over at Christmas Challenges and am also entering the following:

Winter Wonderland - Make Your card Sparkle (I've Stickled and Dazzled everything in sight)

Our Craft Lounge - Distressed and stressed (edges have all been distressed but not inked)

Jingle Bells - Christmas See Thru Element (you can see thru Dazzling Diamonds to the image)

A Gem of a Challenge - Cold and Frosty (can't get any colder than these two cute snowmen)

Delightful Challenges - A Very Sparkly Christmas (as above all Stickled and Dazzled)

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Must be christmas bright and/or sparkle (went with sparkle)

Bah Humbug - Snowmen (Yup there two little cuties right there)

So thats all from me, hope you enjoy.

Double Bah Humbug!!!

This card just drove me mad, I had it planned in my head but somehow it didn't make it to paper the same way. Anyway, I am going to post this and then bury said card in my pile never to be seen again...until christmas when some poor unsuspecting person receives this in the mail.

So I decided to follow the sketch over at Sketch Saturday (been procrastinating over this card so long I've probably missed the challenge).

Over at Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog they want non tradional (not me) or distressed and me and this card were both VERY distressed by the time it was all said and done.

Decided to joing Crimbo Crackers for their first ever challenge where "anything goes" - and it all just about went finishing this off.

So image is my new Sarah Kay Noel Santa coloured with copics, crackled and distressed to within an inch of his life (been wanting him for ages and finally got him), DP is Bo Bunny Father Christmas, sentiment is my other newbie - Wimsy Stamps Mini Postage Stamps - love em love em love em. Pearls are old stash, and blood sweat and tears are all mine lol.
