hat and mittens

Hi Everyone, hope all your preparations are well under way or finished, I am thankfully, except food shopping which I think I will leave until Sunday, probably when most will be doing it ugh! I'm working Monday and Tuesday so can't do it then, so Saturday or Sunday it is.  Only a couple of cards left of people I forgot!!!! so bad of me.

Anyway, a card for you today, you know I am a fan of Elizabeth Dulemba, well she is asking for Christmas cards for her gallery, so thought I would oblige.  Here is my contribution.  I chose her hat and mittens, seeing as a few friends "over the pond" have deep snow and we are getting a bit colder too.

I have decoupaged the image and used tiny eyes to accentuate the eyes on the mittens,  I paper pieced it all from a digi kit "Jovie" by Gina Cabrera. I used Atomic Cupcake's chalk action in PS to edge the snowflake paper, then cut a few of the image to get layers. I added buttons from the kit too, but added shadows to them rather than cut them out. A real cheery card as is the message, hope old neighbours will enjoy it.

1st Christmas card

Hi everyone, goin' to be another quickie I'm afraid.

The card is of course a first Christmas card, the image from Pink Petticoat coloured in PS, paper pieced with PP paper, then glittered a bow added, it has to be done doesn't it?  Simple.

Birthday Fairy

Hi Everyone, I'm going to be quick again!  Here's a card I did for a work colleague who needed a bit of a lift, so I thought magic, yep! a lot of people would like to know how my mind works LOL.

Anyhow, here it is a digi stamp from Karen's Doodles, I was there a couple of weeks ago and she has opened up again.

 I coloured it in PS following this colour combo by Seeds and added a blue background sky from Magiclands a digikit by Designs by Brigit, I just realised the paper is magic as well as the fairy, so I did know what I was doing after all, even though it was subliminal! oh! this is getting to complicated, I'll get on with the card.  I layered some silver mirror card then added glitter, as you can see some of the places I have added it are quite small, but I have a fine tip applicator which makes it soooooooooooo easy, HERE I wouldn't be without it, I even use it to add my paper to card.

Rudolph card

Hi Everyone, Sorry to be such a bad blogger, but had 5 minutes so thought I would you show you one of my Xmas cards.  It's an image from ELizabeth Dulemba HERE and I love the happy face on this Rudolph reindeer.  I coloured it in PS and placed it on a background I coloured in PS too, I added a snowflakes digi by Kimeric, I then cut around Rudolph added a layer of his head and scarf, sparkled the snowflakes added a tag of the snowflake and background paper and 3D it all onto the card oh! yes and added 3D gloss to his nose. I've added an angle view too.  Quite simple, but I think a happy card. Hope you do too.

101 birthday

Hi Everyone, hope the sun is shining where you are, it certainly is here this morning for a change, so nice to see light at this time of year instead of the miserable weather we have been having of late.

Another quick post to keep you in the loop so to speak, I am going to endeavor to get mojo trapped so that I can start my Xmas cards, no, I've not done any for me except my last post. gulp, AND it's only 21 days to go, my overseas cards should have gone by now, so Mr MOJO had better get here soon TODAY!

A card to show you, I was asked to make a 101 year old birthday card, isn't that incredible.  I was in the middle of my fair stuff at the time and didn't have time to make something that took too much time, so I got some papers together a quote from TLC and made this, I'm glad to say all concerned were pleased with it.  The papers are by Samantha at Pixel Scrapper the shape tag is from Paper Garden Handflowers digi kit cut file. I punched some stars out as, at his age, he is a star and loved too.

I'll enter the following challenges

Quick post AGAIN

Hi everyone, where is the time going? I still haven't started my Xmas cards and meant to start this pm, hoever Son comes and says his friend has had a baby girl and would I make one for him! Of course it had to be done today!

I had my first fair last week, last year it was a rip roaring success, this year was a damp squid!  It may have had something to do with it being held 2 weeks earlier than other years and before pay day, not sure what it was, but such a disappointment after my hours and hours of hard work. Never mind, hope the one this week will be better attended and if not, the children's ward will be thrilled as they were last year with the few things I had over then.

Any how, just a little card today as Elizabeth Dulemba was asking for Christmas cards, I HAD to do one of her little characters LOL.  I did one VERY quickly and this is it, I love these little bears of hers and put a sentiment that I thought suited the bears.  I wish you could see how sparkly this is. Love the expressions on their faces.  The background paper is by Carin Grobe at Digital Scrapbooking Design, I used a white brush in PS to add the snow then shadowed all the elements. Then added Glamour dust to sparkle it.

I added this to LIM after a comment from Marie, should have thought of it before!

I hope I'll be back here sometime this week with another offering.

After posting I decided to enter a couple of challenges here they are.
