Heads Up For An Early Christmas Pressie!!!

Happy Christmas Eve all!
Just a quick heads up to head on over to Dude Time Doodles!
*Nudge* *Wink*
You might find Christmas has come a little bit early!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
I hope that Santa is good to you & that you have a wonderful time with Family & Friends!

For those of you who don't celebrate Christmas,
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Happy Birthday

It's Christmas Eve! Yayyyy!!! Only one more sleep till Santa!
Thought I'd share this card I made recently for a friends Birthday!
I was clearly having a pink & girly moment!!!

I used an A5 card blank for the base & the DP I have used is 
a digital freebie I got absolutely eons ago!
I've matted it onto plain pink craft paper.
I've actually used the same paper twice but printed it out in two different sizes, 
I love the effect this gives!

by the very talented Tracey Malnofski.
Such a versatile image & I so love her little face!
I added the sentiment to the image before printing out.
I coloured her up with promarkers, added some ribbon detail & some 
little pink photo corners!

I handmade the flowers using a patterned vellum & added some 
little matching diecut  leaves !
I also added some touches of glamour dust for a bit of sparkle!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like her!

The Snowman!

Happy Wednesday all!
We're almost there!! Yay!!!
It's time for a new challenge at 
This week, we want to see a project inspired by 
Your Favourite Christmas Movie!
Now, I was torn as I have so many favourites but.....

Yep, I love The Snowman!!!
I also love all the old Black & White movies!
 I opted to go monochrome to reflect this!!!
The image I have used is called
he is of course from Dude Time Doodles
I've used him before on this card

I used a 5"x5" card blank 
The layout was the sketch from

The DP I have used was courtesy of Jak Heath.
She added these freebies to her blog just as I was looking for a B&W paper!
Thanks Jak!!!
I coloured the snowman with Promarkers.
 I liquid embossed the snowballs using Anita's 3D Gloss & some glittery bits
 to the snow & the snowman with my Sakura Clear Star pen!
I cut him out with a nestie & also cut out a matt of 
plain black to go behind him.
The only additional embellishments I added were 3 black self adhesive gems.

I decorated the inside of the card a little to tie in with the front.
I enjoy doing this as it's a change from adding inserts, 
it helps to balance out the weight of the card too!
Thanks for looking & I hope you can find time to play in our latest challenge at
