Everything Christmas Now

So I've created another collage Christmas card and these are fantastic to use up bits and pieces that are just around and arranged on a card. I've used some papers that I've had for a while and made them more in the spirit of the hoilday who says you can't keep adding on them. So pretty well everything here has been coloured differently to add in the more festive feeling.

Art Book Cover

Now this is just a simple cover I've made up for my niece's book it's a sketch book for her to draw in and I'm hoping she will like it I've kept it flat so she can carry it anywhere with her and it won't get snagged and bug her when she's drawing I have covered the whole thing in clear embossing so it won't get to dirty and will be abled to be cleaned easy and no one can steal it seeing her name is right there :)

Just to say ....

Well sometimes you need a quick card ... Minus glue drying time of course
but Flower Soft Toppers sure did save me time .. no colouring so I did use alot of
Flower Soft on it and mixed in a little Pink Micro beads for extra subtle sparkle.
Plus when your trying to keep your embellishments thin Flower Soft sure is the way to go this can be mailed anywhere for the cost of a stamp YAH!!!

Little Hello's

Lately I've been trying the sketch challenges to try something different for me
I 've followed Totally Gorjuss's and I loved the Background paper and didn't want to lose the fairy so
I've added in an acetate layer with flower soft and white flocking around the edges and 4 little mini star brads to hold it in place. Who wants to see glue attached behind the acetate Yuck!!!
The fairy paper and Adorable little stamp is from Asia I was lucky to have won her candy a while ago.  I went to town and coloured this guy up a few times but this is what worked best with the paper.
