Winter Blues

Good Morning Bloggers!
A second card from me & it's not even breakfast time yet! Lol!
This is my post for The Crafting Cafe if you'd like to see my
post for Just Inklined, please scroll down.
The theme over at The Crafting Cafe this month is 
I have used an image from our sponsor is LEJ Designs.
She's called Unhappy Angel.
I can understand why she's not so happy & feeling a little blue, she
only gets out once a year & she's stuck atop the Christmas tree!
I'll leave the rest to your imagination!
At least she's warm & cosy indoors though, especially with all those lights!

Quite a simple card. I coloured the image with a mix of Flexmarkers
& Promarkers, trying to use as many different blues as possible.
I then added some Glossy Accents to the lights & her eyes!
I have to say here eyes look a little odd in the photo as the
light is shining from above! I did intend to take my card to work so
I could get some daylight photo's at lunchtime but silly me forgot!
I had to use my lamp which isn't that great!
Santa if you're listening???? lol

I added some twine, a couple of little jingly bells & some ribbon.
The glittery reindeer is punched out with my latest purchase!
Cute isn't it!
I forgot to mention the little de-bossed Christmas Tree border
& the little sentiment banner from my stash.

Here's the inside of the card!

Good morning all,
I hope your week is going well!
It's Thursday & time for a Just Inklined card.
Here's what I have to share with you!

A CAS sympathy card.
I was in two minds whether to share this one or not but as many of
it find this type of card difficult to make & I think it's important that 
we do make them, I decided I would.
The image could be used for many other occasions but I felt it perfect
in this instance. Not much to say about this one really.
The image & sentiment were printed onto a single sheet of card.

I coloured the image with Fexmarkers

I added a matt of back card & some black ribbon.
I found some lovely words on the internet so
I put them inside.
Thanks for looking, I hope you like my card.
I won't enter it into any challenges due to the type of card it is.

Go Girl Cheerleader

Good evening bloggers,
Here's a little card I made for a friend who is going through a bit of a tough time!

The image I have used is one that I've had for a long time.
She's called Cheerleader Tween & was from a company called
Digi's With Attitude. Sadly they are  no longer in business.
It took me ages sifting through things to find her! lol

I coloured her using a mix of promarkers & flexmarkers.
Cut out with a nestie & inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink
whilst still in the die. I die cut the sentiment too!
The papers are from Papermania.

Some butterflies & lots of twine to embellish et voila!
