Cutting corners.....

Morning everyone, hope everyone is ok, I am recovering from the mother of all migraines! It started yesterday lunchtime and gradually got worse. So i am feeling a bit washed out today and to top it Meghan now has the same tummy bug that Alex and I have had, so that just leaves Mike and Maya to get it!!
Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Anything Goes, and for the next 2 weeks we want to see your creations 'Cutting Corners', which means decorative, or altered corners on your cards and projects.
I have used another of this years Sweet christmas Dreams tildas. This one is Halo Tilda and she is sooo cute! I have used a Martha Stewart corner punch. If you pop over to the  Craft Den, Lynne has magnolia stamps and MS punches for sale along with loads of other craft goodies.

She has been coloured with flexmarkers and the large snowflake behind tilda is a spellbinders die called ironworks scrolls.

A fairy called Whispy...

Hi Bloggers, today I have another Saturated Canary card to share with you. I think Krista's images just keep getting better and better, I love them. Anyway this one is called Whispy, a fairy, which is just the perfect name for a fairy. She could be used for lots of occasions I think. I have coloured her with flexmarkers and used oodles of stickles, well you cant have a fairy without sparkle now, can you?

White on white...

Good morning blogland, today I have a card to share with you which is a first for me. I have seen lots of cards out there in blogland that are white on white, and this is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I do like a challenge. So I thought I would have a go, and oh boy am I glad I did. I loved making this. So without further ado, here it is

I have coloured silver fairy with promarkers and flexmarkers, then gone over her wings with iridescent medium to give them lots of sparkle. I used my memory box die to cut out two borders, and I used bazzil bling card as my base with papermania glittered snowflake vellum, OMgoodness, this vellum is just stunning. The flowers are all from woc.

A real sweetie...

Morning everyone, time for a new challenge over at Anything Goes.

 This time our challenge is 'A real Sweetie'! so we want to see your cards with sweets, candies, chocolate, puddings etc

I decided to use a little House Mouse stamp that had never been out the packet! but it fit the bill perfectly as it had sweets and a gingerbread house on it. You can buy house mouse stamps over at the Craft Den.

I coloured the image with promarkers then went over the 'icing' with a snow writer pen that I have no recollection of buying, so goodness knows how old it is!!

 I added a tim holtz pine cone and some flowers from my stash. I also came across a little wooden gingerbread man that I used to put on painted signs, so he got a coat of acrylic paint and added to the card.

Thanks for popping by, any comments are greatly appreciated.
