An order of four

The two top cards are made using edgers from the clipart fairy If you've never been into her site then you don't know what you are missing. She has some wonderful designs and very reasonably priced too....................These two I adapted from the christmas range, and prettied them up a bit so they were suitable for birthdays...........I love the effect it gives and a little different to just a plain old A5 card!!

Don't we get some stange requests?

He wanted a Steam train on a Christmas card..........................................I asked should I look for one with some snow on and he said NO he wanted this particular picture!! Apparently his brother and wife live in New Zealand and don't get snow, but that didn't stop me from adding a few snowflakes and some holly..................It has to look festive!!
Oh and the good driving bit is because his brother drives a small gauge train around the local park giving people rides!

I am on the admin team there and we are working on a hush hush project which will be revealed this coming Sunday. These are an order for the same lady. I make loads of cards for her...........He he! She has a large family!

Christmas card for OH

New Kenny K images were released at the weekend, so I thought I would buy one for OH's Christmas card. It's a dream to colour in, I merged the north pole image with the girl santa and also used some of the Christmas accessories to finish it off. This is just the job for this weeks challenge also, as it is 2 x 2. I've used 2 dp's and 2 images.

Good Luck Card

I'm right into doing cards with large letters on at the moment and I'm building up my collection of alphabets. Both the red alphabet and the owl came from The clipart fairy whose work can be found HERE They are not fiddly to cut out either. I think it gives a brilliant effect!

Challenge 28 DT Card for OSAAT

This week's challenge(which starts today at midday) Is "Girly" Or you can use colours from a colour inspiration piccy.
I used Trev drawn by Purple Panda........Purple Panda has lots of animals digis in her shop which needed to be made girly. So I printed it twice (one flipped) glued them back to back, coloured both sides the same and used Trev as a charm. The handbag is a from a downoad from the clipart fairy.
To join in this week's challenge.............You'll find the link on my side bar

Four Christmas Cards

Made four similar this morning. I first downloaded three images from Sassy Cheryl's ( I just loved the image that Jak used on her card of the boy with his tongue stuck to the lamp post!!)
The BP I made myself and changed the colours slightly to match each digi stamp.
I tend to make my Christmas cards in batches as I have over 150 to send!

A free Christmas download

By The Clipart Fairy. Because my printer is acting up again I can only print on light card so I attached this to a square linen card. Looks OK though! To get the download go to the clipart fairies blog which can be found here

There is also a tutorial to show you how to make it (the print out actually makes two) if you print the backing twice!
