Hello my lovelies how are you all?

I've used 'Snowflake Corner', 'Holly Leaves' Prima flower & Snowman Charm, WOJ die to cut out sentiment & a Fabric Flower with added stickles for extra sparkle ;0)

This is 'Christmas Lantern Marci' she was of course coloured with Copics & I've added 'Yellow' stickles to the lantern.  Will add the colours shortly......

Simply Wishing You Magic

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I have a card that I made for 2 fabulous young ladies, & a young gentleman. I have kept it simple............yeah simple, not much foof on this one lol.
This is for my lovely blogging pal Pop's lovely 3 kids, I cant show you Pop's card yet until she receives it. I have text her to tell not show her kids lol. Last year I sent one between them all but this year I thought they deserved one especially for them.
I have been neglecting my Mo Manning images recently so I thought I should rectify that. I have used
 'Winter Fairy Halla' & 'Winter Fairy Talva' I mirrored her & then cropped them both length-ways & added a sentiment in the middle.

I've not used any DP's on this just layered with thin kraft type card. I used my MS punch for the scalloped edges.

I made a bow with white seam binding then sewn on a button, I love these buttons & then added a charm which says 'Merry Christmas' at the bottom, its lush ;0)

I coloured both the images with copics & added lots of glitter & stickles & 'Tiara' stickles to the thingies he is blowing out lol.

I stamped some snowflakes on kraft type card & heat embossed it. I also added a 'Snowflake' & I added pearl dots with my pearl pen which of course you cannot see lol. I'm actually pleased with this card, which doesnt happen often especially with my simple ones lol.

Ingredients used...........
Winter Fairy Halla digi image - Mo Manning
Winter Fairy Talva digi image - Mo Manning
Stardust Stickles - MCH
Tiara Stickles - MCH
Silver Pearl Pen - MCH
Sentiment is a digi I will add the link later as I've forgotten lol.

I did start my blog hopping this morning the about an hour or less later the electric went in our village, when it did finally come on we then had no internet for few hours, I thought my life was over lol.
Anyhoos' will be round to see you soon. Thank you soooooooo much for your lovely comments you all rock!!

Papertake Weekly GDT - My 20 Minute Card

Hello again everyone I'm completely & truly doolally, I think my tiny little head might possibly go KER-BOOM lol. I am completely getting mixed up with everything..........I got mixed up with my
  Papertake Weekly GDT creation & for some stupid reason thought it had to be done by Thursday.......yep Thicky Vicky strikes I rushed last night & made a card, so although late, here is my offering for this weeks challenge which is............
So we want to see a predominantly white or feature snow on your creation. I decided to go for lots of white..........not an easy task for me as I struggle with these white cards, mix that with running late. However I actually made this card in 20 minutes, think I'm still recovering lol.............all I remember is PANIC!!!!
I cheated & used one of  the Magic Moonlight photo's, I have loads of these printed out, have done for ages & never got around to using one..........yay for me for using one finally lol.

All the flowers are from WOC, they are White Carnations, White Large Rose & White 15 mm Roses. I also added Stickles to them, which here you can see still wet lol.

The image was printed off onto glossy photo card & I matted onto Spellbinders 'Marvelous Squares' which is gonna be a new fave I think ;0)

I embossed the background with the free A4 embossing folder I got with my Ebosser & added a doily on top, also inked the doily up a wee bit..........think its impossible for me to go totally white lol.

I also added white seam binding down the middle, made a bow & I sewed on 3 silver bells to it. I also added a White Pearl Heart to each corner. It still needs a sentiment yet, not sure which one as it all depends who it is for.
I cant believe I have managed to make a card in 20 minutes, I've never done one in less than an hour, it normally takes more than 20 mins for my brain cells work together as a group!!! 

Pop on over to the Challenge blog to see the GDT's & DT's creations, they are totally WOW STUNNING!!!!!!

Across The Miles

Hello all my lovely people how are you all? Are you getting excited for the big red jolly fella? He will be here soon wobbling his belly like a bowlful of jelly!!!!!!! Eeeeeeee I really cant wait & although its hectic this time of year, its the BEST time of year.......LOVE IT!!!!!!!
I am hoping for some crafty time today as I'm really missing it however I thought I would show you this I made for a lovely bloggy friend.
I made a gift bag to put some yummy goodies in.
I've used Inger Harding digi papers, I love digi stuff cus its perfect for doing different sizes.

I've kept it all pretty simple as its got travel to a different country & I didnt want anything getting damaged. 

The top corner shows the velcro to open it up inside. The bottom corner is the velcro on the flap, I also added seam bing there as an anchor to lift the flap.  Added 'Tiara' stickles to the large poinsettia.
I've added a sentiment & a 'Christmas Angel'.
Seam binding & lace is from my stash, gift bags I've had for probably 2 years & cant remember where I got them.

I did cut it down in length a bit although when I started filling it I wished I hadnt as I struggled fit it all in. I'm not gonna show you all the goodies as it will ruin her surprise...........although this lady wont know its for her lol.

I really enjoyed making this its ages since I've done one, you never know you may see more lol.

I did manage to do a bit of commenting last night although I'm sorry they were not my usual type I did it in bed from my Kindle & it was the first time I'd used it like that lol.
I did mean to do some earlier but Expendables 2' arrived as I had pre-ordered it from was absolutely fantastic & I will be watching it again later in the week, you've got to, its THE LAW!!!

Okie doke thats it from me I will be round to catch up with more blog hopping later. Thank you so much for stopping by, you are gems.
