Papaya Collage...

The weather down here in Somerset today  is absolutely dreadful, lashing rain and wind and it is so dark and gloomy, but I have managed to put together one card.
I've used stamps from S.U. Papaya Collage set, backing paper is from SU. also   SU Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder,  the little edge die I have used is one of the  S.U  Edgelits called  Finishing Touches.

                 I would also like to take this opportunity wish you all

Thank You....

Hope everyone has had a good Christmas, cant believe its all over now for another year..

I've  been making 'thank you' cards and this is one of them...such a dreadful photograph but its so dark and miserable its just impossible to get a good photo.

I've  used one of the butterflies from S.U. Papillion Potpourri set, dies are also from S.U. and so is the pricking template I have used on the dies,  the lovely banner die was a gift from Tara  as part of a 'Thank you' gift for being on the DT of St Lukes Charity card blog.
The embossing folder is also one from S.U.

Winter Fairy....

Came up to my craft room to put away all the Christmas stamps and papers that are laying around but thought I had just better colour this gorgeous little Winter Fairy Digi stamp from Mo Manning that had been sitting on my desk waiting to be coloured but not used this year.
Coloured with Polychromos pencils, I used Light flesh, Medium flesh, dark flesh, cinnamon for her flesh and Prisma Light Aqua, and of course yellows for her hair. I also used Staedtler Gel liner pen to do some  highlights and of course a little bit of glitter.
Papers are from DCVW called 'Linen Closet', sentiment computer generated.
This card will go into my Christmas box for next year....My friend Val over at Aquarius Blog and I are going to try and make at least one or two  Christmas card each month to help start next years cards...

I think most of us now are getting things ready for Christmas so blogging has taken a back seat but I will be back with one more post before Christmas...

Hope you are all keeping warm and dry in this awful weather, nothing but rain, rain and more rain today...

Thanks for popping by...

I'm still here!...

 Yes I am still here and thank you to my friends who emailed to see if I was O.K.  I've just been so very busy,  I was so behind with Christmas shopping and making my Christmas cards....3 cards left to make and they are for my 4 grandchildren so thought you might like to see one I've made for our youngest  grandson who is 2 years old.... 
I've used one of the Wee Stamps printed toppers so I didn't even have to colour!  Backing papers is from LOTV so I've just added a little bit of glitter and put his name of the card using Sizizx Naturally Serif Alphabet die.

We have our club party tonight so the girls will be making something a little bit different but NOT a card, will post tomorrow of what they make and once they have done the project we will have food.

Its Pantomime time at the weekend, our yearly treat is taking the Grandchild to see the Panto...and of course it means a sleep over.
