Merry Christmas!

The big day is finally here yayyyyyy!!!!  This year is the first year both my little ones have been entirely aware what's going on and taking it all in with the lights and tinsel so they're so excited bless.  I let them open a present this evening that 'silly santa had left at nannas by accident' and Mols gets so excited with everything, it was a floor jigsaw but she was totally over the moon ahhhhh!

Hope everyone has a lovely day and you get everything you wish for!  I know I got one thing I really really wanted, a pair of trainers that are black and turquoise and they have a swirl on them that looks like the Hero Arts swirl stamp, I sooooo wanted them lol!  Mind you knowing my OH he'll give them to me for my birthday and make me wait the 3 extra days lol!

Onto my recent makes, I've been sooooo busy making stuff lately including earrings that I've not had nuch time to blog nor photograph them all so these are the ones I have.  My DD gave me a last minute order for card wallets so made 3 of them, well actually thats a bit unfair, she didnt give me a last minute order, I left it till last minute lol!  Anyway have done them and they've gone off to new homes :)

This first one is an image by Hannah Lynn from Crafts & Me, I actually saw pics of Hannah drawing this in various stages so I was thrilled it was a digi.  Its a Christmas stamp but can easily be used for easter and general birthdays/greetings too.  Its so pretty so really enjoyed making this, have made a couple of the candle boxes using them but didn't photograph them as I think you guys would get boredz of seeing them lol!

I coloured with promarkers and the new letraset metallics, the background is moonshadow ink (yum!!) and I used a martha stewart punch around the page punch on it.  The chipboard snowflake is from Home bargains :)

Next up is one I made a couple of weeks ago for the Crafts and Me challenge but just didnt get time to blog and whatnot but I'll share it on here.  The image is by Sara Burrier and is called Poinsettia.  She actually is quite long with a flowing dress (Look at bottom pic) but I zoomed and cropped her.

This is the first of the image wallets I've made that open up and have flaps inside and I put the present onto a label which was a show and the date it is and popped that inside.  The image is by Teddy Bo and is coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.

And finally the last wallet using the Poinsettia stamp again in a different colour scheme, I mugh prefer the wings on this version!  I coloured them in pastels and glittered with glamour dust.
The 2 tags on the inside of this use the image again, the first one is Poinsettia in her full glory and the 2nd I did a mirror image of just the face area.
