Afternoon :)

Got a couple to share with you today :)  Been extra busy with poorly kids, prepping for xmas and the lymm dickensian so I think I'm pretty much done so can do some blogging for a change!

First up is a card I made for Ruby Choobz using a Teddy Bo digi coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The gems are from The Stampman and come in strips which is really very handy if you want to use a lot!  White flowers are papermania and embossed lilac DP I've had literally forever, I got it for subscribing to CM&P around 2004 and put it away for 'best' as you do!

This little cutie is by Mo Manning called Holly Fairy and is one of the candle box cards I've made again coloured with promarkers and I've added glitter around the edge.  My tutorial on how to make these boxes is here

Another candle box card using a silhouette by Stitchy Bear Stamps.  Cant see it very well but I coloured in the fireworks with a clear sakura stardust pen so its all sparkly, used distress ink around the image then stamped flowers along the edge in distress ink (flowers are from a sheet from The Stampman and I use them that much its stuck permanently to its own block!)

Entering into...

One stitch at a time - Use a digi

And finally another box card cutie by Di's digi downloads.  Saw this image whilst perusing and someone had entered one on a linky so I went off for a nose as you do and bought some - I'm sure I'll be getting more!  I coloured this one when I was sat in a kids play area and had a couple ooohing and ahhing over it :)
