I couldn't decide whether to colour them in Promarkers (left) or Twinks (right), so I did one of each and put it to the family vote. Here they are side by side. The boys decided that the Twinks looked better, so the rest were coloured that way.

However, my friend Ju has decided that she's old enough and is now going to start having un-birthdays. I made this card for her as a bit of fun.
Sorry about the lighting on this one. I used stamps from the Creative Expressions Jungle Friends plates and coloured them with Twinkling H20's. The background, which you can hardly see, lol, was using the Joseph's coat technique. I stamped the leaves with a Versamark pad and embossed with clear powder. I then took a Distressed Ink Pad in Walnut Stain and wiped it over, buffing when dry. The paper was such a dark patterned green, you can barely see it.

This one is the one I made for my hubby off our 2 boys. It uses an image from one of the MCS CDs. It has been sat on the table since July ish waiting to be cut and stuck. It wasn't til I was cutting it out a couple of weeks ago that I realised that the little bear is holding a a blue teddy. Our youngest son's bit of comfort is a blue ted.
This card is for Lewis from his little brother. However, his little brother likes it more than he does, lol. Kieran is car mad at 22 months old!

The theme for November's Inspiration Card Swap group swap was 'Tea For Two'. I REALLY struggled with this one but decided that these two ladies from the Lilac Lemon Designs Art Deco plate were having Iced Tea.......are you convinced..............................?lol.

This is such a simple card but I love the effect of the gold embossing powder on the mink pearl card. Both the flourish and the greeting are from the Flourish Snowman Inkadinkado set.Even simpler still......I repeat stamped this tree using a Whispers brush pen (not sure what the colour is meant to be) and used the same pen for the message. I then scribbled over the trees with a Quickie Glue pen and glittered. Such a pretty display.
Last one for tonight. I stamped, coloured and cut a lot of the wee meeces and friends from the Winter Tales collection over several nights. I love this card......clean and crisp.

This card is an Elzybells stamp and greeting, the backing paper is from a CD but one I had left over from last year so I have no idea which one.
The final card is my first attempt with Distress Ink pads. I used Faded Jeans and blended it round the edge using Cut n Dry. I then stamped around the edge with an Inkadinkado stamp from the Filigree Snowman set using a Versamark ink pad and dusted the image with Perfect Pearls. I overstamped the corners and the the Filigree Snoman in the middle with Faded Jeans. Not sure if I like this. Comments please..............

This image is matted onto some purple holographic card and I used the same holographic as the base matt on the card itself. The snowflakes are printed from the Winter Tales CD. The finishing greeting is from Elzybells.
This card is stamped with some Cute Companions snowflakes using white Stazon. I dotted some crystal glitter glue in the centres for some added bling. The red card itself has a small silver fleck in it which inspired me to get my Moonshadow Misters from Lindy's Stamp Gang out to add a little something. As I have said before I don't have any Nesties so I used my premade template to create the shaped layers. I am into sqaure cards at the moment and just love this shape. The greeting is also from Elzybells.

I was quite pleased with this card until I put the 'floor' in. Now it looks like someone has wiped doggy poop across the middle of my card.
I love this nativity scene. By repeat stamping the little meeces I got 3 kings and 3 shepherds. Aren't they cute!
I have made a few of these snow globe and bauble cards for the children at the childminder that Kieran goes to. This one is for 2 sisters. I made cards with either a snow globe or a bauble for the children with no brothers or sisters.

The backing paper for Popcorn was taken from the Popcorn Floral CD. I tried a slightly different method of matting and layer using a strip of card the same colour of the base card and edging it with some scalloped scissors.
Tilda was mounted onto some paper from my stash and the corners trimmed with a Fiskars corner punch. I rounded the corners on the mirri board. The 'Just for You' is a Letraset rub on.

The first card is for my son, Lewis off his brother. It's Popcorn Bear and Sofflé fishing. Stamped with a black versafine ink pad and coloured with Promarkers.
The next card is for my niece. Again, Popcorn Bear on a present. Stamped and coloured as above.
These are my first endeavours with Promarkers.....I'm sure I'll get better!

The next is a set of ATCs I made for a "cute" swap. They are Tilda and Forever Friends stamps.And finally for now, is a New Home card I made for my online pal, Anesha. Simple but I really like the stamp!
There are still a few I need to download from my camera and I have some new stamps to play with so watch this space..............

I made this card for a completely unrelated project but Lewis loved it so much he wanted to send it to Kieran for his birthday. Who was I to deny him....especially when it saved me making another, lol.
