Let it Snow card

Hi there, I see it's the weekend yet again....the weeks fly by so quickly don't they? the weather is being kind to us for Autumn in the UK...let's hope Winter is just as mild now.
I am happy to report that all my Xmas cards are now made and I have also bought all my Xmas pressies too. Ok don't hate me for that  lol ! Makes me so much less stressed when I have all that sorted before the mad rush starts. Just got to address the cards and wrap the pressies and I am all set...happy days !
Anyway you are here to see my card I am assuming so here it is below. Another one for the 'Less is More' challenge which is 'Metallics' this time. Funnily enough I had just finished making some cards with snowflakes on (will post them soon) but using sparkly glitter not metallic really. Anyway I quickly made a similar one using some shiny silver card this time. Hope you all approve ;)
I made this card in between making a cheese and onion pie for us all tomorrow and a lemon tart too. Lots of dashing back and forth to the kitchen and then my craft room and then trying to get pics taken at the right time with sun etc. I was like a whirling would have laughed I am sure. I will add pics of my baking at the bottom if you are nosey ;) 

Of course .....enjoy your week whatever you have planned !...I plan on tidying my craft room as it looks like a bomb dropped just now lol !! 

So hard to get a proper photo of shiny card grrrr!...I know everyone will be saying that this time though ;)

The Flower Challenge #26 'A Special Occasion'

Hi there friends, I am here once more to share my latest DT card for 'The Flower Challenge'. I can't believe it's November will soon be Christmas, ...are you me neither lol!

Anyway onto my card, this month our theme is 'A Special Occasion', so Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, New many options. See all the cards made by our talented Design Team if in doubt.

Right onto my cards, I made two in the end, do come and have a closer look...and of course enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Floral Birthday card

CAS, Flower Challenge, Special occasion

Smooth White card
AltENew Floral Art stamps
Avery Elle Loads of Wishes stamp
AltEnew Watercolour inks
AltEnew Clear Embossing ink
Altenew Rose Gold E/P
Neat & Tangled sequins

I made my card base and another panel to go on top. I then stamped and embossed my flowers  and leaf. After that I watercoloured my flowers. I stamped my sentiment on another strip of spare card and added some watercolour to the edges then attached it to my card. A sprinklng of sequins and my card was complete.

Hydrangea Birthday card

Flower Challenge

Smooth White card 
AltEnew Mega Hydrangea stencil
Hero Arts Shadow ink Soft Sky
Lawn Fawndamentals Ballet Slippers ink 
Avery Elle Loads of Wishes sentiment stamp 
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Faber Castell pencils
 I made an A6 top fold card base and then added another smaller panel on top. I used my inks over my stencil, blending the colours as I went. Then I used my pencils to add some shading to my flowers.
Not used to using pencils so I went gently...need more practice I fear lol , but I did enjoy the process.
I added my stamped sentiment and my usual sprinkling of sequins and my card was finished.

 Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
you have until the 25th November. We are back on the 15th with
reminder cards.

Hi there friends, just a very quick post from me today. No cards this time but instead...unicorns ;)
I bought these cute Neat & Tangled unicorn dies recently and decided to make two unicorns for two of our grandchildren.

I had recently bought a lot of felt luckily...(I am hoping to make some 'felted' animals soon and the felt will be used for clothing for the animals), ...anyway I used some of that.

Don't look too closely at my stitching either lol, the felt didn't stitch too well. At least the grandchildren liked them and they went well with a book on unicorns I got too ;)
