Ho Ho Ho in Mono

Good morning to you

It's Friday again and I have another Christmas card, oh come on it is so hard to break the habit after posting them for so long at the Winter Wonderland and with them having the best sponsors lol 
 I went with a traditional Santa
The base layer and contrast is cream the papers are from Bearly Mine.  I used my grand decorative nestie and the plain one too for the image plate.  I added some ribbon, a charm, a pearl brad and lots of gold pearls all from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of that fabulous Kenny K image coloured in Sepia tones with copics with a little stickles for a bit of Xmas glitz

I would like to say hello to all my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

Flutterby's with Wild Rose Studio

Good morning to you all

Hasn't it been quiet on my blog, well you see I have been working on a Wedding order, which I will show you all soon, but did not want you to forget about my normal weekly post for the


and that Candy that is running on not only my blog but also on the 


which is some awesome goodies from the New Release

What have I got for you this week, well I loved the butterflies in the new release but also remembered those gorgeous butterfly papers from one of the early releases, and thought that they would work together so well, so

Using
Papers - Butterfly Glade

I have another generic card for you to check out

such lush colours don't you think? and this was such a quick make


The base layer and contrast picking up the mint green in the papers is mint green, I have edged the oval frame die with some distress ink in the green, not as light a colour as I had hoped but it is not too bad.  I then used the butterfly die and some more of those lovely papers to cut the butterfly using the mint green for the body.  The sentiment is I believe a Woodware one.  See a quick make :)

Here is a close up of the butterfly, cut from the papers so pretty I think

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome my new followers and thank each and everyone of my visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments, which allows me to visit you all in return.

Glass Etching

Good morning to you all

I hope you have all had a great week and that you are now looking forward to the weekend.  

I mentioned a while ago that I had been playing with my cameo again, this time I had made my first ever vinyl cutting and then transferred this to glass to complete my first ever glass etching piece.

Now the piece was for a special heartfelt occasion, the christening of a very good friends little girl, in all of my creating last weekend, we did take time out to attend the christening, it was a lovely event, and felt so special to be invited too.

I did decorate the box too, but forgot to photograph this, but it was hand stamped and vintage looking, I know that doesn't help much but it was pretty honestly.

Anyway enough of my babbling and on to the creation

I love these, pure glass and with a little glass stand too.  It just shouted out decorate me.  The heart scroll was from the silhouette on line store.  I added a little tiny rhinestone and the wording is my own design. 

I was a little gutted when I had left it four hours to do the etching bit and when I washed it off I could not see the design.  Ah!!!!!!!!! I had to wait for it to dry and then like magic the etching appeared, phew :)

Now to think what else I can make

Anyway just a quick reminder of my current candy which you can find
