Parchment Christmas Tree

Well we've had another fall of snow overnight here in the south west and although it looks pretty at the moment it is causing major disruption at this busy time of the year.  I'm staying firmly indoors as there is no necessity for me to be out and about so best leave the roads to those who really MUST go out.  My friend Anne has received the parchment card I sent her so it is OK to post it here now.  I'm so glad I posted my cards off in good time  otherwise lots of folks would probably not have received one in time this year. Glitter backing paper and jewelled brads are from Papermania and the snowflakes made with an X-cut punch.

Quirky New Home

I just love Polkadoodle images and recently bought a set of stamps with quirky buildings on them.  This one has been made into a new home card; background paper is from my stash; image coloured with Copics; computer sentiment on SU punched shapes, swirls were from a Marianne die with flowers from my stash.  Afraid I've not been posting regularly - trouble with the weather, seasonal jobs to do and so on all getting in the way of crafting.  Roll on the New year.

Cheery Sunflowers

I came across these die cut sunflowers by Papermania when I was searching for something else in my stash and thought they would make a nice cheerful card for these dark days although actually today the sun is shining in a pale blue sky - still quite chilly though. Background paper is My Minds Eye and flowers were layered up using Pinflair glue gel.  Punched corners using SU and EK success punches and a Spellbinders border strip.
