Another Christmas card - thanks to the challenge blog!

Luckily, over at Glitter n Sparkle, I had another Christmassy challenge... show some snow

I got the image of Mary Sanderson...
She is a witch, in the Hocus Pocus film!
The challenge was to "show some snow" so I (hope) I made her 
look quite different.
I embossed the background and added a digi stamp sentiment.
I also found some sparkle varnish in my christmas stash
(which I bought years ago in Canada) 
and painted it on the embossed snowflakes, with the teeeniest of paintbrushes!
A little sparkly gem finished off each snowflake
and a length of sheer ribbon, tied along the bottom.

My first Christmas card! (challenge 59 - Glitter n Sparkle)

My card for challenge 59 at Glitter N Sparkle blog... add or make a tag...
and I got a Christmas image - so I thought I'd better bite the bullet!

The cute image is called "Dede - christmas bells" from Bugaboo.
It was a joy to work with...
I added a sentiment...the first one that came to my mind..."jingle those bells!" and printed it off.
I used promakers to my gold promarker.
Also, glamour dust was sprinkled on the fur trims of the hat and skirt. 
The little presents are a digi image and I quickly handcut the holly for the corner,
Just a simple black line finished off the edge of this card.

A first birthday

Here is a card I made for a friend to give to her friend...
I used a dovecrafts papers, Debbie Mumm digi image,

This card looks sooo much better in real life...the photo does not do
it any justice.

I got this lovely pre-coloured "Emma raking" image for this weeks challenge card.
The backing paper is a digi paper I have had for ages. 
I cut the bird off the 'large bird on a branch' Marianne die.
