The Slippery Slope!

Hi peeps

I managed to get this one finished before my hols, but have scheduled it so that hopefully you'll get to see it while I'm away - no more thinking about Christmas for me for 3 weeks!!

I've used another LOTV image which I coloured with Copics and glittered up with lots of Glamour Dust.  The background papers are Bearly Mine Designs and I've used the MS icicle punch for the border.  The 'Wish List' is from Whimsy, although this isn't actually a stamped image - it was cut from the packaging which I bought the stamp  in - waste not, want not!  The sentiment tickets are also from Whimsy.  A bit of machine stitching, and some homemade candy, and that's it.

Hope you like it enough to leave a comment, and I'll look forward to catching up with you all when I get back from Spain.

Christmas Dinner or Dog's Dinner?

Hi everyone

Thanks for calling by.

Today's card is made with one of the new LOTV Christmas stamps, I just couldn't resist this release and bought six of them, so expect to see them popping up now and again, although I'm off on my hols again on Monday, so you won't be hearing from me for 3 weeks (BIG smiley face!)

Anyway, back to the card - the papers are digis, from Bearly Mine Designs (I think!). The little red snowflake border was an MS punch, the musical paper is stamped with a Whimsy stamp (a pressie from my friend Tasha), and then embossed with WOW embossing powders - I love these for fine detail work.  The poinsettias are cut with a Marianne Design die, to which I added punched stamens cut from coffee filter papers and then dyed with distress inks.  A little bit of stitching, a sentiment stamped with an old HOTP stamp, a bit of ribbon from my stash, lots of Stickles, and that's about it.

Hope you have time to leave a comment as I love hearing what you think.
