Another Bah! Humbug!

Before I cleared away my stash from my last Bah! Humbug! post I thought I would use the other bird with berries stamp and decorate a candle.

Thanks for looking.

Less is More. Week 4

This weeks challenge is to use 3 squares.  I had a few ideas whilst out shopping this morning, but when I got home my parcel from QVC had arrived......lots of t!m holtz goodies (TSV on Tuesday).  So needless to say I've been having a play this afternoon.

The kit included some alcohol inks, but I used some of my own.  The first square is glossy cardstock, the second is foil tape which has been embossed and the third was shrink plastic.  All squares have had the same alcohol inks applied - lettuce, juniper, sailboat blue and gold mixitive.  The little sentiment stamp was inked with versamark and lettuce dye ink and then clear embossed.

Thanks for looking

Bah Humbug Week 8

This weeks challenge is "Things that Fly".
I've used two stamps from Elusive Image, the holly background from the Christmas Flourish set and the bird image is from the Wise Owl set.  The inks I've used are Antique Linen Distress Ink and Versafine Onyx Black.  I added some red glitter to the berries and finished off with an embossed greeting.

Thanks for looking,

Oh well, here we go.........

The day has finally arrived!

After hours spent looking at other blogs I have spent even more hours trying to set up my own!
Please be patient with me - I don't have a clue!!

The reason for this venture? 
I love making cards and felt brave enough to join in a few challenges.  

The first challenge group I joined was  as I was so disorganised last year. (I was still making cards on Boxing Day!)  

I then joined in with  so hopefully I can make a stash of all the other cards I need!

Hope to see you soon
