Snow Angels

Thank you for the get well wishes, I am feeling much better now thank you. Sharing two cards I made with Beccy Muir's release 'Snow Angels'
I used the snowflake images to make a sheet of background paper for both cards. The images were printed and coloured with alcohol markers. The sentiments used were both from the set as well. 
Hope you keep warm this week.

Finn's Bells

Another new release from Beccy Muir called Finn's Bells.  For my door sign above I used two images and one of the sentiment from the set. I printed them out and coloured them with alcohol markers. Attached the images to a wooden stick. Thinking about putting it near my front door.

The second card was made by printing the image quiet large and cutting it out and making it into a shaped card. Coloured it with alcohol markers and then added the sentiment from the set. 

Hope you will join the fun at Beccy's Place this month. There are lots of chances to win!

Would like to enter my first project above in the Allsorts challenge blog: anything but a card.

Christmas card

Was asked to make a card for a couple who were going to get an Eglu (did not know what it was at first) to start keeping chickens.  I used images from  Beccy Muir's  Feathered Friends set, Hats Off set and Poinsettia Set. The Eglu image I drew myself and coloured  with alcohol markers. All the images were fussy cut and layered onto the front of the card. My friend was really pleased with this card and so was I. 

Would like to enter it in Beccy's Place The Month of Holiday cards challenge. Do come and join, there are prizes to be won every day!

Getting messy

It's lovely to play with Brush again and get a bit messy. Paula has a new monthly challenge and the first challenge theme is Take flight. The first thing that came to mind was this Tim Holtz stamp which I have not used in ages.  The background layer was done with alcohol inks and then embossed. The layer with the stamped image was done with Brusho crystals. I used glossy accents on the birds and pitt pen to shadow the tree. Was really nice to do something just for fun. 
Will also like to enter this card in the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge: Autumn colours.

Just to let you know that Skipper's blog has been taken down, she will pop up on here sometime. :)
Have a great day.

Hats Off set

The featured set from Beccy Muir's designs this week is 'Hats Off'. You can used the selection of hats in the set with other images from her range of any other that you have. You can find this set and all the other wonderful sets in her SHOP

I used the birthday hat and the sentiment to make my card above. Firstly I printed out a large version of the cat and coloured it with alcohol markers and glitter. Then made background paper with the image and coloured it with alcohol markers and panpastels. The background paper was cut into four and mounted on the blue card. The last layer was made by using various inks and stencils and perfect pearls. 

Don't forget there is still time to enter October's Challenge on Beccy's blog

Great week

It's been an amazing week so far. Hubby has been volunteering at the British Masters at Woburn, this week and I have been enjoying watching some wonderful golf. Met Sir Ian Botham but did not think to get a photo or autograph, silly me. We are going again tomorrow so maybe better photos.
Will be back to crafting next week. Enjoy your weekend.
