Long Time No Blog!

Well hello everyone!!

It's been just over a month since I last blogged!  Time just ran away with me over the festive period and the first week of the new year has been spent recovering from a chest infection.....

But I'm back and I'm blogging again! Yay!

It was Jamie's mum's birthday yesterday, and even though they are a "no card" family, I still made her one.....

Quite a simple card - white card base stamped with a flower stamp using black memento ink - I think it is an Anita's stamp, computer printed sentiment cut out with a nestie and coloured using pearly chalks.  And three flowers stamped and cut out with pearl centres for embellishment :)

I really am on a roll again now, and think having a gentle push from Lizy is helping too ;)

Here is my next card, which is my first Christmas card of 2012!  I know, I know, but like many other people, at least I'll be prepared for this Christmas :)

A very simple card, mainly made for the Less is More challenge, which is a one layer card using a theme of birds...a penguin is a bird, isn't it?  Never sure if it's a bird or a mammal! I have used a Little Claire's stamp, stamped directly onto my card blank using black memento ink again.  I have coloured the image using Sakura Stardust pens for the glittery look.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More - One Layer Card - Birds
Sweet Stampin' -All That Glitters
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking and hope you like my cards!

See you all soon x

  4. Hi Kim, thanks for stopping by my blog. I have to come clean and tell you I didn't make the card base. It was a prefolded pack of stepper cards by Papermania. Give it a go - really easy!!
