It's Nearly Here!

Yep 2016 is just around the corner - I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year and the coming year brings you Health, Wealth and Happiness!
This cute digi was a gift from Gerda Steiner = she is the sweetest person and pops up in my emails every now and then with a lovely digi for her subscribers to download!

I found a template for a wine bottle card and this is what I made!

Now that is such a cute start to the New Year! I coloured the digi with Promarkers and dut the neck label from some gold paper and added the sentiment cut with a Tattered Lace die.

If you're not a subscriber to Gerda's newsletter pop over here and sign up!

Miss Daisy Stamps!

I got a message out of the blue a couple of days ago from Kathryne (Formerly Stamp Art Design) who used to be one of the Whimsy Digi Artists, when Whimsy stopped doing digi stamps the very talented Kathryne was lost to us - until now!!
She has opened her own store - Miss Daisy Stamps - where you can find all her adorable images!

This wonderfully happy snowman was free in the store and I just had to play with it!

I coloured him up with Promarkers and gave him a little glitter! He is layered onto a snowflake vellum layered onto a matching blue, the sentiment is a Spellbinders die cut and the snowflake I cut twice from blue and white glitter card then finished with a pearl heart. Doesn't her just make the prettiest Thank You card!

You can also visit her on Facebook Here, so why not pop over and say Welcome Back!!

A Very Late Christmas Post!!

I should have posted this before Christmas but got so carried away with all the preparations for the festivities blogging was the last thing I thought of!

This adorable little Santa is the image from Gerda Steiner for the December Progressive challenge, I coloured him with Promarkers and used some gorgeous papers from a pad I found in Lidl that has some gorgeous Christmas paper sets in it!
I cut out a twisted easel card using a shaped die and followed the shape right through with the different layers, the sentiment is a die cut from Crafters Companion.

I hope your Christmas was peaceful and filled with joy and laughter!

So if you've not found her yet - go visit Gerda here.

Christmas is Coming!

Yes it won't be long now and I bet everyone is busy getting their holiday cards made and mailed out to friends and relatives. At Dragonfly Dreams we would love to see all your holiday cards either Christmas or Hanukkah! Our Lovely sponsor this month is Fred She Said and  we got to play with some of her beautiful images, here's what I made using some of the coloured images

These are such fabulous images to work with - the top one is called Christmas Roses and I added it straight to the card and used one of the smaller images from the set for the corners, I used some glitter and liquid pearls from Trimcraft to pick out some detail, the sentiment is die cut.
The lower one is called Naughty or Nice Elf and I used a label die set to cut out the digi and the gold glitter mount. I added a nice bow and die cut the sentiment.
I hope we see you over at Dragonfly Dreams for this month's challenge, we love to be inspired by your beautiful work!

12 Days of Christmas!

Hello, we have a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and the Pink team challenge for the holiday season is:

12 Days of Christmas!

For my project I used some papers from Tonic that feature the 12 days of Christmas, I cut each of the 12 days out with a hexagon die and layered them onto some delicious vintage paper (from the same set) and finished with a die cut of a Partridge in a Pear Tree that came with one of the craft magazines and was perfect for this project!

I hope you will find the time during the holiday period to join us for this great challenge. It's anotther chance to make a wonderful Christmas card - so what are you waiting for!!
