Cards for my Sons

Here are the cards that I made for both of my sons this Christmas. I needed to wait to photograph them until my son came over to show me how to use the new camera.

The Father Christmas centres are parchment craft, coloured with pergamano inks and decoupaged. I was very pleased with them.

Any comments most appreciated.

Friday Sketchers Blog hop and challenge

The challenge this week is a sketch set by Claudia and a wonderful sketch is was to work with. My card for this challenge at Friday Sketchers is one I have done for a good friend who reaches retirement on the 3rd of January.
I have used a Magnolia stamp and it is on a Stampin up base card with Basic Grey background paper from the Boxer set. Also used SU DP as accent. I have used one of the feathers in my stash and cut out some flowers and used SU flat back pearls in centres. SU greetings which I used their punches to mount with. Grosgrain ribbon from stash.
Happy New year to all. Marion

Snow Much Fun

I have managed to do another Christmas card. I am entering this into Quixotic challenge No6 here Seeing Stars. Well I hope this qualifys as I only have 1 star on it. I have used Bazzill Cardstock and a Penny Black Image which I have coloured with Aqua colour Pencils. I have used Stickles for snow, Sakura pen on snowflakes and Art Institute glitter on mat layer. Embellishments from my old fav kit from QVC. I hope you enjoy your visit and I do love to hear from you.
Will have lots more time after Christmas as I retire Christmas Eve. Whoo hoo, can't wait.
Have a great week and thanks to everyone who visits and leaves me a comment.
