Mistletoe Santa

Good Morning Bloggers & a happy Saturday to you all!
What a week it's been, so glad I can put my feet up for a couple of days!
The card I have to share with you today is one for La Pashe!

This little stepper card was made using the Mistletoe Santa from the very popular 
I love stepper cards as I always feel the stand out in a crowd!
The card blank is actually made by La Pashe too so that makes it all very simple.
The paper & sentiment are from the CD too!

Here's a closer look at the image!
I'm not sure if Santa is delighted or horrified! lol
As you can see I've added some tiny adhesive pearls to the mistletoe
& to Granny's necklace! The image & backing paper have been matted on to
some red foil paper from my stash! 

Here's a little side view of the card.
The only other embellishment I have added is the little bow!
Not in to CD crafting? Well , here's just the thing for you!
You can buy the complete set ready printed here.
You can of course buy the sheets singly too!

Silver Fox Trot

Good Morning all!
Almost the weekend! Woo Hoo!
Time for a Just Inklined card!

I've made a 70th Birthday card for a lady who loves dancing!

The image I have used is Silver Fox Trot., from Just Inklined.
This image is also available on The Wrinklies CD Rom.
I coloured it up with a mix of flexmarkers & promarkers, cut out with a nestie
 & inked the edges with Antique Linen & Spun Sugar distress inks.

The button was made in my graphics programme. It was mounted on a piece of 
foam tape for some dimension. I love doing these little buttons!

I have no idea who the paper is by as it's unmarked 
& came from a goody box I purchased eons ago!
I added some of my precious favourite lace from my stash, then made three little panels 
which I fanned out to echo the line of her dress.  A double satin bow & a couple of 
stick pins were also added just to finish it off!

I decorated the inside of the card with some of the DP & a little
panel for a message to be written.
I was just looking at this image & thinking it would also be great for a
Christmas card or perhaps New Year if teamed with seasonal papers!
Thanks for popping in!

Wrinklies Mistletoe Paper

Good Morning bloggers!
I have a little card to share with you today!
This one was made just for fun & there is a bit of a deliberate mistake on it!
Can you see what it is?

This is a stepper card made using the mistletoe paper from
The stepper card blank is by La Pashe.

I printed the verse (from the internet) onto some matching cream card
 then used a nestie & the mat supplied to cut a frame for it!

The only other embellisment I have added is a sheer ribbon bow 
with a little bell attached!
A quick, jolly & simple card made in a matter of minutes! 
I don't know about you but I just love that sometimes!
