Cards at last

At last I have made some cards tonight. Spent the last night designing name cards for my friends winter wedding, so I now have about 100 to make for her, I'll post a piccie when I've got them printed and one made up. I've also had to make up a couple of boxes of cards, one Christmas and one Other Occasions for my mum to donate to the Cancer Research raffle. Always struggle making boxes, but after 2 years of struggling I think I might have just about cracked it, did the lids in acetate so that you could see the cards and tied them in ribbon.

Was hoping to play with my Nestabilities dies as well last night, but my Sizzix Texturz kit hasn't arrived, so I will have to keep my fingers crossed it arrives tomorrow.

My first card I have mounted paper from Pink Petticoat onto blue card and mounted across the middle of the card. The Penny Black image I got from Natty K and I have coloured him with Marvy Le Plume pens and added stickles to his scarf and snow. Finished off with a peel off coloured blue.

I covered this DL card with some embossed paper that I had from a Crafty Bitz QVC TSV from about 2 years ago!!!! The image I received from Julie and this was coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens and stickles added. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

I love Snowbunny bella, she is so easy to colour and always look fantastic - wish I did after so little work :o) She is watercoloured with Marvy Le Plume pens and stickles added to her hat, pom-poms and cuffs. I've added little Papermania star gems and mounted onto pink card. The paper is both from Pink Petticoat.

Hubby has spotted a craft fair this Sat & Sun locally and was stupid enough to point it out to me!!!!! So guess where we are going this weekend :o)
