Clean and Simple

Hi again!
Forgot to post this picture earlier and it's such a lovely card I thought I'd give it its' own post now instead of adding it to the last one!
I made this using an Altenew Stamp - Christmas Rose, and kept it clean and simple.
I guess it doesn't have to be a Christmas card really. The image is just floral so could be used for any occasion and the sentiment isn't occasion specific either so it'll be sent at some point in 2017 for some reason to somebody!!!
I also used a sparkle pen to make the rose shine - hope you can see it.

Flowers in bloom!

Good morning all!
Today, I have a lovely card to share with you which I made using the Flower Cart stamp by The Dreamees.
I fussy cut the whole image out and, using foam pads, I've layered it onto a brick wall background  which I made using a brick wall stencil as I don't have a suitable embossing folder!
The whole thing was then adhered to floral paper from my Docrafts paper stash.
The sentiment stamp is from Clearly Besotted and I've added sequins and some Nuvo drops for added interest.

I've entered this into the Flower Power Challenge at Quick Cards Made Easy!

Hope you all like it as much as I do!

Happy. Boxing Day!

Hi all!
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
I've managed to hide away in my craft-room for some much needed alone time so I thought I'd post a quick card which I made earlier! Well, when you've more than 20 minutes to spare, why not make a card and pop it into the stash for next years birthdays/events!!!
So, this is a shaker card which I've made using the free gift stamp set with my magazine, Quick Cards Made Easy, issue 161.

I hope it looks as simple as I wanted it to - I didn't want to over-fuss it but, as it's a smallish card, it may seem cluttered. What do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know!

Have a great Boxing Day.

Christmas is upon us----again!!

Hi all!
Well, if you haven't been shopping, prezzie buying or generally panicking, then it isn't Christmas in your neck of the woods but it is here!
For the first time in my living memory, I have actually done all my present buying and wrapping and I'm actually ready for the big day in advance and I'm looking forward to jetting off to Spain for a week 3 days later!!!
Go me!
He who works is home already (we have a funeral to go to today, sadly) but no more work for him until the 8th January! I give him 5 days and he'll be bored and wanting to go and do some! Lol!
As far as crafting goes- I'm pooped!
I have been making all my Christmas cards and Advent calendars and allsorts of bits and bobs and I've had no time to blog at all so, I'm going to post a few piccies for you to look at and hopefully you'll like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

This first one is a card I made last night and I'm entering it into the Tuesday Colour challenge over at  Outlawz Challenges.

White on white with a Christmas Rose in soft blue.

This is the selection I mentioned earlier : First -  Christmas Cards

Second - A fun bedroom door plaque for a friend

Third - Christmas decs

Fourth - A gift box

Finally - Advent Calendars

Hope you all have a wonderful, happy and healthy Christmas and I'll see you all back here in 2017 (hopefully I'll have some Spanish sun with me!)
