At Last A Card!

I can't remember when I last made a card. I don't seem to have had any inspiration to make them for some reason.
It's my parents Wedding Anniversary tomorrow, so I thought I'd make a card for them. The image is from Graphic 45, and the sentiment stamp is from Cavallini. I wanted to keep it relatively simple, so added cream flower trim and for a dash of colour added some blue pearls.
I'm entering this in the Take a Word Challenge 'Sepia'

Heart Ornament

Having a break from banners! I made this Christmas hanging from scraps I had. The oh so cute image is printed onto fabric and lace and fibres added, I think I'll make more of these, it looks great on my tree, I'm linking this to my MAMA friend Terri's lovely blog for 'Deck the Halls Sunday'

Christmas Banner

Made another banner today, I think I have an obsession with them at the moment! It sets my fireplace off just nicely, and I love aqua and white/cream together. I'm entering this into the Our Creative Corner Challenge ' which has the theme 'Ruffled'

It also fits in with the challengeover at Papertake Weekly Challenge, for favourite Christmas colours. This year mine is aqua cream and white!

Decorated Candles

Thought I'd try something new today. I've had some candles lurking since last year when I had planned to decorate them. Well, finally did today when I saw the challenge over at Gingersnap Creations was for 'wax'.
The first one was stamped in a light blue on tissue paper, so not easy to see in the photo.
The second is in brown, the stamp is from Crafty Secrets, which I added 'dew drops' to for a little bling

Christmas Banner

I made another Banner for my dining room, which will be aqua and cream for Christmas I've enjoyed making the banners, I want one to put on the fireplace too, hopefully I'll get one made this week!

Tree Ornaments

This is my entry for The Paper Players challenge this week.

Working with the colours Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gold. I've been making these tree ornaments to give out rather than cards this year.

I used a victorian image of a girl holding a Christmas tree, and used red and green Flower soft for the foliage, then added some rhinestones for sparkle.

The 'ornaments' across the left side are Paper Artsy stamps on shrink plastic, then strung on red thread. I punched leaves from green paper and added pearls to them.

Then framed the heart with cream and gold trimming, and added a red tassel and red ribbon for hanging

I'm quite pleased how it turned out..maybe another keeper!

The Paper Players Challenge

This is a Christmas tree ornament I made for a friend. I used Wizard of Oz stamps as her dog looks just like Toto

Create something Christmas (or holiday) with non-holiday stamps or colors!
