Shaker Christmas Card

This lovely image from Susan Brown is free ,so pop along and enter your card in the challenge. from Unscripted Sketches -
Incy Wincy Designs - week 104 - shaker cards -perfect for Christmas themes.

I've used water colour pencils ,the paper and snowflakes I printed out on the computer.I was hoping to find some tiny snowflakes in my stash but had to make do with glitter and stars.I need to give it a shake my glitter is all at the right hand side.
Enjoy your weekend ,we have 4 houses to look at ,a mix of very old and ultra modern.This week has been very busy ,the Red Cross are opening a new shop and I have been helping to stock it ready for the grand opening next Friday. I've had a lucky week with my cards and won some images from KennyK ( not really my style) and some Kaszazz stuff.
Catch you later.

Christmas in July

this entire card is made from magazine scraps and a few bits of lace and pearls from my stash.The sentiment stamp is from Lucy's.I think I should go back to the craft room and add a strip of black velvet ribbon with a bow (across the top of the lace border). What do you think ?
I'm a bit disappointed with my photo ,it's very very sunny today and the antique colours all look way too bright.

Make My Monday - challenge 8 - Vintage with lace and pearls .They have had the vintage theme running all month and it's one of my favourites but for some reason I just haven't found the time to enter.

Creations by Gill - challenge 12 -Beach Scene - there is an optional sketch as well.

Fairy tale - challenge 20 - Summer ,Sun,Sunshine

I'm not sure what to think of this one ,I love the star fish which is raised on sticky dots ,I printed out the shells added the glitter and stuck them on, I'm not so happy about the way they look,the glitter was not my best idea.The colours are there in a subtle way.

Just right for the cold weather

Flashback Friday 13.0 -challenge -repost the first shaped card you put on your blog.This was originally posted in July 2009.

Butterfly Greetings

I hope you all had a good weekend ,the weather here is Tassie has been bitterly cold but lots of sun and blue skies ,just my kind of winter. We are still house hunting,the criteria is a large block of land with a smallish house and views of the river.Not to much to ask for lol ,it could take some time .

Papercraft Star -challenge 52 -Photo at top of post -I really struggled with this one.I love the colours but couldn't see any way to incorporate them,my only solution was the butterfly .

Card and a Half- Extra challenge 2 - Any sort of creature .

I used a post-it-note to mask the centre of the card and then stamped with the butterfly.The paper behind the tag is a peach and white gingham stamp with orange flowers.The butterfles I painted with water colours,tag sentiment is from VIBGYOR Crafts .

Some Bunny Special

This is my take on the above photo for Papercraft Star, challenge 51 .I shed a few tears as this is the last of my pink stripe and pink gingham paper, I'm determined not to buy anymore until I have used some of my other papers.
