Very Fancy Vixen

My house is upside down at the moment as I am decorating and I'm loathe to bring craft stuff into the mix but I've managed to get a few more Christmas cards made whilst I wait for things to dry out...

Here's a very simple masculine card I've done for a friend's Dad, in burgundy and grey. This die is one of my favourites because of the magnificent antlers.

I do like plaid papers and the heather colour mix in this pattern is beautiful yet still masculine. The greeting was created in Publisher and double mounted.

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

All Fun Challenges #18 - anything goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - V is for vixen
Crimbo Crackers #218 - anything goes

Skinny Girl With Dog

Today's card uses one of my favourite images from Bugaboo that I call 'skinny girl with dog'..

I coloured her using Promarkers and based the colour scheme on the gorgeous polka dot glittered patterned card from a pad by Deco Time (a brand found in The Range). The floral pattern was from the same pad.

I've recently run out of kraft coloured card so I improvised using a buff coloured stationary folder for the matting! Hard times at the moment for crafters with no papercraft shows! The flowers came from a Poundland pack.

I'm playing along with the current challenges at:

Christmas Cutie

Back to card making after a short break filled with decorating, having a clean out and my best friend's wedding...

It's a wet and miserable day here in the North East so I have decided to get a crack on with Christmas cards....

The Crafty Sentiments image is so cute! I've coloured it using Spectrum Noir pens and used glittered papers from The Range in the background. I've also added a shiny peel-off strip - cos y'know it's Christmas.
