A Clean & Simple Christmas Card!

Three posts in one day! I do apologise for hogging the network!!!
Thought I'd share one of my Christmas cards with you!

The image is a Just Inklined Digi Stamp called Little Church In The Snow! You can find it here! I've coloured it with my trusty Promarkers and cut out with my Nesties! I added some Diamond Sparkles Glitter but it's difficult to see! I matted the image onto some blue spotted paper from my stash & some blue mirri card. I added a ribbon, some star & round gems & a metal sentiment from my stash!

Edinburgh Winter Wonderland!

Ah the irony!!! We decided to go out for a wander as we couldn't take the car out again due to the snow! Didn't intend to but ended up in the centre of Edinburgh. We cut through St Andrews Square Gardens and saw this chap.
He was making snow bless him!!!! We have, interestingly enough, had about 6inches of snow today!

At the other side of the gardens is this lovely wooden Nativity Scene!

Walking down towards Princes Street we have The Scott Monument & the Big Wheel in Princes Street Gardens! In the Gardens there is a Scottish Market & at the foot of the Mound there is a German Market. It was quite quiet today but normally it's mobbed at the weekend!

This is the Ice Rink in the Gardens! They've had to clear the snow to allow people to skate! That's what the big mound is at the front of the pic! If you look closely you can see the little Penguins that the kids are using to help them keep upright!!! Soo Cute!!
 This final pic is of the Caterpillar ride at the kids funfair! They must have been frozen as it was cold enough for us just walking about!!!

Most Definitely Not a Christmas Card!

Yesterday was my dearly beloved's Birthday so I made him this little card!


So nice to get away from the conveyor belt Christmas cards!!! We certainly have been a production line this year!!!

I loved this image the minute I saw it! He's Strongo The Manificent and is from Just Inklined. You can Purchase him here!

 I simply printed him off & coloured him with my Promarkers.I tried several different colourways but decided to go with this one! I then cut him out with my nesties on the big shot.
The card base is printed with Spring time backing papers available from Scrapbookingmad. I have used them to do the matting & layering too!

The Unique tickets are from Sentiments 4 you & I coloured the outside edges again with promarkers & attached with foam pads for dimension. My other half is most certainly unique!

The Greeting is computer generated, I'm sorry I can't remember the name of  the font but will update if I do! It's not on the laptop so would need to power up the desktop!
The ribbon was recycled from one of my pressies!
