Book Shaped Cards

This is the first book shaped card I have made, I used pro markers to colour in the image, embossed white pearl card behing then mat and layered on silver mirror card. Added some gold hearts, some snowflakes and the sentiment is from LOTV

Some New Christmas Cards

Not blogged for a while, so thought I would share some christmas cards am having a little Fizzy Moon monent, really getting into the spirit just over 60 days to go.

I love this card it reminds me of me and hubby always there to keep me warm

This is soo sweet and the sentiment really finishes it off "From Our House To Yours"

Never tried matting and layering with triangles but think it really works in this card and the poinsettia which I cut and stuck adds to it.

I love this shape card, it a template from Ema and just cant wait for some more

My nestie fits around the sentiment nicely

Hope you all have a great evening and would love you all to follow me and become

Couple More Boxes

Well I am addicted to boxes using the back of the top score board by Crafters Companion, here are a couple more.

I loved the hunny pot paper that I did, but it didnt look right on the top so put it inside and think it looks great, I used some of my fimo canes to make the leaf flowers and am really pleased with it

I loved the card that I used think it is very wintery, I used a template from a friend Ema who has a great website take a look, she has some great stuff take a look. I also coloured in using my fabby pro markers the tatty ted, and the snowflake stamp was a freebie from spending a day a little while ago at QVC with my Mother In Law.
