Here are some I've done since quitting making christmas cards! I think my fave is the first one, the colours are all very bold but somehow it still looks ok! And on the last one I've finally got round to using my new butterfly punch, quite pleased with how it's turned out and I love how the wings stand up :) on the other hand I think the backing paper is a bit too busy...

This is the Fab stash I got at the NEC, when I added it all up I had spent about £65!! Doesn't look like I got much for that does it! I got my oval nesties for £12.50 thanks to Tammy and Marie's excellent negotiating skills as we were all bulk-buying! I had such a fantastic day meeting everyone and will definitely be going to the next one. Roll on March 2010!!

This week over at One Stop Crafts the challenge theme is Beary Nice! I have used a stamped image sent to me by the lovely Padster, coloured with Promarkers and I've added a paper flower over the stamped one. Paper is Basic Grey Euphoria and the greeting is a papermania stamp cut and embossed with nesties.
This week's challenge over on Creative Card Crew is to use a recipe of 2 papers, 3 flowers, 2 brads, 1 button and 1 ribbon. I have used a Tilda image along with 2 Basic Grey wisteria papers, flowers from sarah's cards, brads, ribbon and button from my stash. Thanks for looking!
Hi all, here' s my card for this week's Allsorts challenge, snowflakes! The image is a stamp from wild rose studio, papers by dovecraft, punched snowflake from white pearlescent paper and the greeting from craftwork cards. Thanks for looking!!
After deciding that the desk I was using for crafting on before was far too small, as I kept losing stuff off the edge, I found myself a new one from Ikea - it was only£15.99, how bargainous! Easy to build too, I managed it all by myself! I had a little rearrange of my stash afterwards, got lots more work space to make untidy now!! :D

This is a container that I altered for the challenge that Rusty set over on Crafty place :) It was to alter a contained suitable for storing craft stash. This used to be a cotton bud box, now I have made it into a box to store ATC's in as I thought it was just the right size :)

Here's my card for the Creative Card Crew 'Christmas in August' challenge! I've used a Lily of the Valley reindeer stamp coloured with promarkers and chalked in pink around the edges. Papermania papers and mirri board and some ribbon I found in my stash :) Thanks CCC!

I made this as part of the challenge I set over on MSE to use stitches or stitching effects on cards. I have used a Miss Anya stamp, coloured with my shiny new promarkers and doodled stitches around the edge, forever friends paper and some purple card embossed with divine swirls, plus papermania greeting stamp and glossy accents on her hair bobbles which you can't really see from the pic. Loved making this :)

This is an anniversary card I made for an order, the colour of the wedding was burgundy so Ive tried to keep that theme. Backing paper by papermania, flower from calico crafts plus card candy and a peel off that I don't know who it's by but it's a lovely style of lettering. I really must get an anniversary stamp as I'm getting short of peel off's!

I've been very busy trying to finish this cross stitch piece, which is now finally done, Ta Dah!! I must admit it's the hardest thing I've done so far, lots of half stitches, combined colours, I almost needed a degree to dechiper the pattern! I took it on for my auntie, as I encouraged her to try it and as she's not a regular cross stitcher she found it a bit much to cope with, I do hope she's pleased with it!

Here's my card for the MSE Christmas challenge! I've used Papermania papers, a Daisy stamp and greeting that was free with the latest issue of Docrafts, and my shiny new nestabilities for the first time! I love them and will definitely be getting more sets :D
