Mo Manning - Christmas Card

Good Morning everyone, jeepers isn't it a windy one. A few weeks ago when it was this windy 2 ridge tiles blew off the roof and put a dint in Chris's car door. He only got his car back from the repair shop on Friday so he has just gone out and moved it off the drive onto the road. The tree will probably blow over now and crush it lol.

My card today is another Christmas card to add to my collection.

I have used the gorgeous Monique by Mo Manning
Coloured with Promarkers
Charm and Bakers Twine from stash

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - Hardware - Metal charm and staples
Christmas Challenges - The Sketch
Winter Wonderland - Here Come the Girls

Don't forget you still have 3 days to join in with the Nutcrafters challenge of Anything Goes.  The rules have changed and you no longer have to use a Nutcrafters image although we would love it if you do.

Jean's Birthday

Good morning everybody. Sorry I haven't been posting lately. I had 3 days off at the end of last week and as Chris was off too, we went out everyday so no time for cards I'm afraid. :(

I had a lovely time.  Wednesday me and mum went to see The Dancing on Ice Tour.  We loved it.  The show the professional skaters put on was fantastic.  Friday Chris and I went walking in The Chadkirk Chapel Estate in Stockport, Saturday we went to Quarry Bank Mill and Sunday Little Moreton Hall.  We have just joined the National Trust so no doubt we will be spending many weekends now out and about.  I'll have to start crafting in the evenings, if I can stay awake after a day at work.

Anyway enough waffling, back to today's card.

I have used this fabulous stamp by Lili of the Valley - Glamorous Gardening
and coloured with Promarkers
Backing Papers - Dovecraft Sugar and Spice
Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly
Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps
Gems and Beads from stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
I love Promarkers - Floral Image
Lili's Little Fairies - Diamonds and Pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Just before I go, don't forget you still have a week to join in with The Nutcrafters Challenge.  It is a nice and easy one this time ANYTHING GOES.  The rules have now changed and you don't even have to use a Nutcrafters image any more, though we would love it if you do.  I'd love to see some of my blogger friends joining in.

White on White

Good Morning everyone. Hasn't it been a lovely morning. Today I am posting a card made for my Auntie Christine's 60th birthday.  She is my mum's youngest sister and mum and dad are going to stay with her next weekend so they can take my card with them.  She lives in Lincoln so they can pop in and see Emily whilst they are there.  Chris is taking her back to Lincoln today so she can have a week of revision before Uni starts again next Monday.

I have made a white on white card, think I have gone a bit OTT with the embellishments though.

Snow Day

Good Afternoon all, hope you are still having a nice break.  Chris has just made us a yummy roast pork for lunch, loads of crispy crackling, don't think it will last very long lol.  He has just gone to see his mum and then is picking Stewart up on his way back so we can have a nice family lunch.

My card today is a Christmas card.  Last year I made one a week but haven't managed it this year so seeing as I had  a bit of time I thought I would get one done.
