Sandra's Birthday card

Hi all, I've been such a bad blogger this year, deffo need to put it down as one of my New Year Resolution for 2023, not much hope for the remainder of 2022 LOL

Anyway I have a wee Birthday card to share for my friend in work, using this cutie from Lili of the Valley.  Coloured with polychromos, glitter added to the cupcakes and clear gloss to the jelly.  Some little snippets of leftover purple card to finish.  I won't confess how many attempts and how much time it took to tie the cord hahaha!!!

More Snowy Snowdudes

 Hi all!  We had such a lovely bright Autumn day today, so nice to see it as it feels like we've had nothing but rain recently!  Halloween night was pretty much a disaster, we had the grand total of 5 youngsters at the door ...  a bit of rain wouldn't have put me off getting free sweeties when I was a kid! 🤣. Mind you, we were only allowed to visit 3 or 4 houses, none of this visiting the entire neighbourhood and definitely not knocking the door of folk you didn't know! 

Anyway, I've been trying to get my Christmas card count up.  This one uses my Simon Says Stamp snowmen yet again. 

I was on a shopping trip recently at Creative Depot and splashed out on some of these lovely paints after seeing one of their DT using them - wow. I'm so impressed!  They give a real metallic shimmery finish and I think I'll use these a lot!  I've splattered the silver one here for my snow and it looks fab in real life.  

  • As You Like It - favourite Christmas image - I have a total soft spot for snowmen and have an ever growing collection of snowman stamps!  Plus they're always quick to 'colour'!!  (these dudes just get the faintest lick of pale blue watercolour at the edge)
