Christmas Pretties

Hi Everyone. Today I thought I'd show you these super cute images from Lily of the Valley. I saw them on someone's blog and I thought "what a great idea". Superb for when you are in a rush. I wish I could remember whose blog I saw them on and then I could give her credit for alerting me to these. I remember she made a gorgeous card, but when I went back to look for it I couldnt find it. Thank you anyway.  I just love them. The images are already cut and coloured all ready for you to use. All you need to do is design the card. Simple stuff, hey??? Now, I love to colour, but, if I'm to be completely honest, my colouring is Terrible, yes, with a capital T....... so I thought I'd give these a go and have an easy Christmas this year, as far as cardmaking goes anyway. Its a pity you cant see the sparkles on these because they are 'really' sparkly. Also there are other images, not just Christmas and they are all extremely cute. Nip over to lilliofthevalley and take a look. By the way, the postage was SuperFast.
On to the card. I used my very favourite Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart. I only just found this and I know I'm going to use it soooo much for Christmas, so get ready for seeing it lots on my postings in the future. The holly is also a Martha Stewart Punch. I added a bit of ribbon and 'hey, presto', finished. Too cool. I have already made a bunch of these so take a look underneath for the different images. I entered this into 3 challenges: - sketch (optional extra - easel card) - Winter Fun - Snow, snowflakes and glitter.
 See you all soon.
Hugs to you all.

Cute Witch

Hello all you wonderful bloggers out there, how are you all? Not long to Halloween now. I hate having to put all my goodies away when its all over. Lets face it, its another year before I get them all out again!!! I dont know about you guys, but if I see anything to do with Witches, Pumpkins, spooky trees and houses,  I just have to have it and for some reason I cant think out of the box with halloween. Some of you creative girls seem to be able to use them  throughout the year. I just cant. There's a challenge for you. Keep you halloween stuff on the shelves and see if you can use them during the year for other stuff!!!!!!! Mmmmmm, maybe I should take my own challenge up. Nah, maybe not. Anyway, I'm entering this into a few challenges just for the fun. Here are the challenges:
Copic Oz (wow, thats my 2nd card!!!)

Wow, thats a lot for me. Enjoy your day (or evening) depending on where you are and I'll see you all next time. P.s Sorry, I have the usual problem. The colours are all washed out on this photo and I took 20 photos!!! Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Hallweens Coming

Hi everyone. Well I'm back after quite a spell away from the computer. Halloweens coming, and though we dont celebrate it much here in Oz, I'm originally a Pom and we did celebrate it in England so I still love everything about it. A very dear cyber friend sent me this Witchy Poo stamp all the way from France. Isnt she just the sweetest? My friend AND the stamp, I mean. I thought I'd better get her stamped up before its all over for another year. I just love this image.
I'm not the savviest of computer people, so keeping up this blog work is quite difficult for me, but I promise to try harder. Even taking a good photo is a challenge for me!!! I think I've told you all that before. 
I entered this into the City Crafter Challenge Blog and Incy Wincy Designs and Copic Oz (I hope). I've only entered a couple of challenges before and its been that long I cant remember how to do it!!!
I hope your all well and creating lots of good stuff. 
See you again, soon!!!
Hugs to you all.
p.s If someone could tell me how to put this signature on top of my card  I would REALLY appreciate it. Isnt that where its supposed to go? See, I told you I was hopeless!!!
