Flutter By Wednesday # 88

Good afternoon folks, I hope you are warmer than I. It is pouring down here on the Costa del Sol and real miserable, I do feel sorry for the holiday makers but despite the rain they are walking around in shorts, T shirts and a brolly - brrrrrrrr far too cold for that in my book.

This week at Flutter By Wednesday we have a fantastic sketch designed for us by our uber talented Guest Designer Mercy Kerin, thank you Mercy I really enjoyed working this this and will defo use it many times over.

I am combining my card with Totally Gorjuss who have set there theme for Free & Easy.

I have coloured Fairies - A Big Bouquet with my copics and added lots of glamour dust to her wings, I do love this stuff. Papers are K & Co´s Sparkly Sweet, double corner dies are Nellie Snellen´s and flowers are from my stash.
Don´t forget to pop by my fellow DT´s blogs and leave them some love too, links are on my sidebar.

Christmas all over again!

Good morning peeps I hope you are all fit and well and in a real crafty mood cos I have set the challenge this week at the Creative Card Crew and kept it easy cos I know you are all up to your eyes no doubt making Christmas cards so what better theme for you than


The lovely Denise from Whimsy Stamps has kindly sponsored us again and she also has a Holiday Card Contest running until the 12th December so check out her link to play along for even more prizes.

I am combining my card with The Pixie Cottage who are asking us to Get Stitchy, Secret Crafter Saturday want to see Christmas Trees, Kraftin´Kimmi Stamps say Touchy Feely and Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential want Hats On.

Oki koki onto my card.

First I pricked my "Christmas Fun" brass stencil from Kars by Erica onto pearlescent card then placed it on my light box to emboss . . . decided to cut out the tree shape before continuing cos knowing my luck I would have made a boo boo after stitching the ornaments, sewing on the beads and adding the gems . . . just call it age related rofl.

Simple reverse of pattern for back of card, adhered backing papers from DCWV then inked up Santa by Anita ... coloured with Copics and added lots of glamour mist ... and I apologise
as I have added my greeting to other side so can´t show you that in case a certain person may see this.
I did try ribbons down the spine but thought they looked too fussy so added brads instead.

Have a super duper day, I am off to town to pick up my new glasses and will be back tomorrow.
