As promised....

Here are a few cards that I've been making whilst not doing alot of 'owt else.. well, one has to find something to do with their time when the Doc says 'stay warm and take it easy!'. Don't you agree?

This card was made using the FF Stickers, they are just great for quick cards. I remembered the other day I have about 30 cards or so I need to make, so this set has to be quick... I made quite alot the same as this, just different colours. The glitter card is from Craftime - and let me tell you it is AMAZING! The glitter doesn't come off, it's fantastic to glue and it is just sooooo sparkly! Backing papers are Dovecraft I think.
This dark is quite a rich green and didn't photograph all that well, although I'm sure you get the idea.Again, the glitter baubles are craftime. Flowers are Doodlebug and papers are HOTP.
I decided to delve into the drawers and pull out some of last years Papermania Christmas papers for this card. The topper tree is Dovecraft, again from last year. Ribbon is Doodlebug.
Cute doggies.. now there's a suprise! This was a quicky quicky card, using PM papers again from last year. The dogs are a stamp and thought it perfect for me with having three dogs! Image has been coloured with Whispers Strokes pens and then shaded with water.
I love this outline sticker.. it's Anita's and is actually silver! I combined it with the black and silver papers from Papermania. This one fits the Challenge over on Papertake Weekly. This is the brief -
This weeks challenge is to use one colour! You can use shades of the same colour and small accents of other colours if you like! The team have done some gorgeous examples for your inspiration!
This one fits in with the PTW challenge too - shades of red. The papers are DCWV and the flower is Doodlebug. I hope you like it.
This next card I made to go with the Challenge on Cute Card Thursday
Here was the brief -
.Challenge 40
This week we like you to dust off your punches (not die cuts!) and use them on your cards, you can either punch some borders or corners or use punched out shapes on your cards.
I couldn't resist using the snowflake punch and Dovecraft papers on this card. The stamp was coloured with Whispers pens and waterbrush. The punches I have used are the snowflake and the circle punch. Funnily enough it also fits in with the template challenge on HERE at Friday Sketchers. It's a lovely Sketch that I've used a few times.
Using this template again, I made up this card..
The stamp is a High Hopes stamp, and this was its first outing! Again, for this one, I used punches to create the flower in the top left and the greeting at the bottom. Papers are DCWV.
This card is my favourite this year. I used Dovecraft papers from the Traditional pack. The stamp is Whippersnapper and the cradle at the front is layered up and mounted in front of the main square. Coloured with Whispers pens and water again. I added some sparkles into the sky for the stars.
I have managed to get done my challenge for this week's Forever Friends challenge blog.
The challenge this week is for a card using a Christmas Carol theme.. mine was Deck the Halls..

Hope you have a great Christmas if I don't get back on here before then! Paul is off from tomorrow, and we have quite a few things we need to be getting done... I'm waiting in today for my order from Amazon arriving.. like it should've yesterday!

Have a good 'un..
