Christmas Sparkle!

Good morning peeps!
Today's card is my GDT card for the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog!
The theme is Christmas Sparkle.
My card has lots of sparkle but I'm not so sure you can see it in the photos!

I used an A6 Kraft base & the DPs are Papermania  Festive Frolics
The Bauble Paper is glittered!
I matted the DP on red paper & the image on mirror card then red paper.
The sentiment was created on my pc.
I wrapped with two colours of bakers twine  & tied a bow!
I wanted to give this card a funky kind of feel!

The image I have used is Bark At The Moon from Stitchy Bear Stamps
I love this image! 
I highlighted some of the shaded areas with flexmarkers 
but I guess you could use the image just as it comes
My family have had Huskies for many years & have spent many a 
cold winters day at rallies with racing teams!

I was hoping you could see the sparkle done with a 
Sakura Clear Star pen a bit clearer in this photo!

My sentiment!

The inside of the card.
Thanks for looking, I hope you like my little card!

Fairy Grand Ma!

Happy Thursday peeps!
Here's a little card I made using a Just Inklined image!
It's such fun!

I made an easel card!
The design paper I've used is a free download by
Marisa Lerin over at Pixel Scrapper
I've distressed the edges with scissors & then an chalk inkpad.

The image I have used is Fairy Grand Ma
Isn't she just so cute? Everyone should have one! lol
I coloured her up with my Promarkers & Flexmarkers then
added some sparkle with a Sakura Clear Star pen!
I love that pen! Glitter without the fuss! lol
I cut out the image with an oval Nestie then distressed the edges
& matted her onto a scallop oval of pink paper.
I added a DP Panel where the pink paper was punched with 
a Martha Stewart Pine Needles border punch & added some pink 
spotty ribbon which is Papermania I think.
It's been in my stash since last year.

 For the base section of the easel, I mirrored the layout
but added a sentiment which I made on my pc & cut out
with a Sizzix Label die. I added a little more ribbon & a couple of buttons
Hope you like it!

Morning lovely peeps & a very happy Sunday to you!
Today's my Birthday! Yay me!!!!

I need to have a look see & sort out a little Birthday Candy, so watch this space!

I'm so excited as we have the carpet fitter coming to fit the hall carpet today!

Todays post is a card for the 
Crafty Pad Challenge this weeks theme, chosen by the lovely Pauline is
 #198 Add Some Glitter
Here's my creation!

I had a lot of fun making this one! I'm finally beginning to unearth some of 
my bits & pieces that have been stored in boxes for the last few months!

For the base card, I used kraft card-stock from Southfield Stationers
The DP's are from my stash & I have no idea where they are from
I may have got them in a goodie bag or in a blog candy, who knows!
The bauble paper is glittered but I'm not sure you can see it in the photo!

I coloured it up with Flexmarkers the cut out with an oval Nestie.
I added some Diamond Sparkles Glitter. I then matted the image
I added a greeting which I printed out  & matted on to the green paper.

The magic mesh was from a crafty goodie bag.
I used some twine & added some little bells. from Meiflower

I decorated the inside of the card,  using the green paper with the negative cut out of the
scalloped circle die & some white paper behind. I then added some DP scraps.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation!
