A Pile of Penguins!

        Good Morning!
I'm back with another card using a design by LOTV that features their super cute penguins!
This design is called 'Pile of Penguins!' and is such a fun image, you can't really tell from the photo but I have added some stickles to the star in the design, simply because you can't have too much sparkle at Christmas time! 

INGREDIENTS -
LOTV 'Pile of Penguins' Digi Stamp & LOTV Sentiment
Maja Design Papers
Snowflake Die-cut, Berry & Assorted Flowers
Clear Dew Drops, Twinklets & Frantage Embossing Powder

 Thanks for stopping by!
HAPPY CRAFTING!

Here we go again!

 Good Morning!
It's that time of year again when the Christmas blog fires up again, here's what I have made so far this year condensed into one post. Don't worry though, after today I will make sure that each card has a post dedicated to it with all the details of what I've used listed with them.
You can find the details for these cards over on my main blog in the meantime.

Happy Crafting!

2020 Christmas Cards

 Good Morning!
I have been absolutely useless at keeping this blog up to date this year with my Christmas makes, so here is a quick post showcasing all the creations I've made so far.
You can find a list of ingredients for each card over on my main blog, but for time's sake I thought I'd combine all the pictures of the cards made so far into this post. 

I promise after today normality will resume and I'l keep this blog up to date with the full and detailed posts! lol

Happy Crafting!

Christmas is On the Way ...

Good Afternoon!
Christmas is only two days away so it seemed rather fitting to create a card using a stamp called 
'On the Way'. 
This card uses an older stamp from Lili of the Valley and is the card that I'l be giving my partner this year .. the stamp seemed perfect as it also includes a little pooch (we have a dog) and some Christmas foliage (I'm a keen gardener) so the stamp reminded me of us both ...
it's the little things lol

Merry Christmas with Tilda

Good Evening!
After sifting through my Magnolia stamped images last week I couldn't help but have another look through them all and pick another design to play along with! I used to craft with Magnolia stamps all the time but haven't done so for a while, so this card was made simply for fun!
I do love the older Christmas designs and this little tilda with a garland is ever so pretty.

Penny Black Saturday December Challenge!

Good Evening!
There's still time to play along with our challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE and the theme is 'Anything Goes + Option of Sparkle & Shine!'

I've created a clean and simple card today and kept it as minimal as possible for me! I even kept the stamped image as black and white for the simplistic look. The stamp I've used is an oldie but one of my all time favourites! 
Unfortunately you can't tell on the photograph, but I have added some frantage embossing powder over the main image for an extra wintery effect ... I really need to find a way to improve my photographs of Clean & Simple cards.

Penny Black Stamps
Doodlebug Sprinkles & Papermania Shimmer Dome Stickers
Frantage Chunky White Embossing Powder
