Cross-Eyed Christmas Owl

I just love the face on this owl. Perhaps he's had a few too many and is concentrating staying put on his perch!! lol

The image is from pcCrafter and can be found here. I put a bit of glitter glue on his hat and a few red gems on the holly to give it a bit of sparkle. The background was scored on my scoreboard and the snowflakes were punched and finished off with a white pearl in the middle.

Well, the snow here is unbelievable and I'm having a day off as I can't get into work. I suppose I could always walk, but by the time I get there it will be time to come back!!

Have a nice day whatever you're doing xx

Christmas Wreath Pinecones

I used my new nesties on this one .. can't remember what they're called!! The red glitter paper is some I had in my stash and is really sparkly in real life .. shame photo doesn't do it justice, and the backing paper with holly is from Forever Friends.

Can't remember all the Promarker colours I used, but do remember the ribbon was coloured in Burguny, Crimson, Poppy and Antique Pink.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and don't have too much trouble with the snow. We've got a bit at the minute but it's copable!! xxx

This gorgeous Iris is from Just Inklined.

I've been that busy making Christmas cards I haven't had time to do any colouring in lately, so it made a nice change to get my Promarkers out.

The colours I used are:
Flower: Lavender, Lilac and Purple
Leaves: Meadow Green, Apple and Forest Green

Keeping everything crossed that the snow stays away, can't stand the stuff .. unless it's Christmas Day of course!!

Decoupage Poinsettia

Gone back to my first love decoupage for this card.

There is actually six layers but the photo doesn't pick it up very well. The beautiful Poinsettia is from the fantastic "Christmas Past" Cupcake Crafting CD.

I'm just waiting now for the go ahead from Wills and Kate to make a start on their wedding stationery!! lol

See you soon xx

Peony Take Two

Another fabulous Peony digi stamp from Just Inklined which can be purchased here.

I saw this lattice effect done (without the pearls) on another blog a while back and can't for the life of me remember where .. so whoever it was .. thank you so much for the inspiration. The coloured card actually started life as white, but after using the brilliant Greeting Card Factory I changed the colour by using the radial effect which gives a two tone effect.

The peony was coloured with Promarkers:

Leaves: Forest Green, Apple and Meadow Green
Flower: Cocktail Pink, Pale Pink, Almond, Vanilla and Ivory

That's it for now .. see you soon xx

Just Inklined Blog Hop

Here we are again, Just Inklined blog hop time. Can't believe how quick these months are flying by and not even started thinking about Christmas yet!!
Anyway, on to our hop and our host this month is Lydia who set the theme of "Use at least 2 different punches".

I used three .. Martha Stewart Doily punch, an inverted corner punch and a little butterfly punch, and the gorgeous image is the Peony which I coloured in with Promarkers.

If you're following the hop in the correct order you should have arrived here from Joyce, but if not you need to go to Lydia for the start and follow the trail from there. I'm sure all the ladies will have done a fantastic job as per usual and can I just say welcome to Joyce whose now a permanent member of the design team.

Enjoy the hop and here's a list in the correct order in case you get lost


See you soon xx
