Good afternoon everyone!  Have had a very busy morning at work so am having a relaxing afternoon. I have only just started using Kraft card but have to say I really like it and I love this Humphrey stamp, he is adorable and so easy to colour, I used promarkers. The flourish die is a Cheery Lyn one and then I just made the flowers freehand as I haven't a die for those (yet) and of course the doily border punch from M/S.

Kraft Christmas

Morning all!
I have managed to make quite a few cards this week however my holiday is over now and its back to work for me so it'll be back to not posting very often again, there's never enough time for the most enjoyable things! Anyway this card is my first attempt at using kraft card and also have used distress inks which I am not that good at but plan to start using them more. I'm not entirely sure about this card, it's one of those where one minute I like it and the next minute I don't, lol! I'm not sure what the image is as it was sent to me ages ago when I used to take part in the wallet swaps over on docrafts. The snowflakes are sizzix dies and I have embossed one in brass embossing powder and decorated the other with blue glitter glue and a viva pearl pen. The rosette was made on hougie board and the round reindeer stamp was free with craft stamper magazine.

It' snow time!

Have spent today recovering from my trip to the NEC yesterday! It was a brilliant day but so tiring, I haven't even unpacked my bags yet, there was so much choice I nearly didn't spend anything because I just couldn't make up my mind what to get, I am sooooo indecisive! It's been a few years since I last went so I really enjoyed it and even managed to get a couple of christmas presents!
Anyway todays card is another christmas one using the gorgeous memory box snowflake border die, I absolutely love this die and have used it on my last four cards. I have used a popcorn the bear image coloured with promarkers on a distress inked background with some gems.

I am entering this card into the monthly crafters companion challenge
