Christmas cards in non-traditional colours

Here are the results of last nights crafting. I made them for a challenge over on the Trimcraft website, we had to use non-traditional colours and at least 1 star. It was so hard not to use silver on these cards, as I seam to use a bit of silver glitter on most of my christmas cards! Was pleased with how they turned out.
The lovely image used is Mrs Tilly Claus from Wendy's digital doodling which I coloured in using my new promarkers.

I can't believe it!!!

I was picked by a random generator for the winner of the C.R.A.F.T. blog challange with my postbox card. I'm so excited, as I've only just started to enter challenges I wasn't expecting to win. I've won some lovely digital images by Doddles by Hope Jacare and a goodie bag which including a couple of sakura pens. I'll put some pictures on here of the cards I make using my new goodies. Thanks C.R.A.F.T challenge.

The Kids Christmas Cards

I thought I'd show you my kids crafting skills!!
With help from Mummy and Daddy on Sunday they made all their Christmas cards. Here's one of them. It got very messy but we all had a great time getting the paints out. They enjoyed it so much they wanted to carry on so they painted pictures to send to Santa. I wonder if they will still want to make cards in 20 years time???????

C.R.A.F.T Challenge Entry

Here's my entry to the C.R.A.F.T. challenge. This is the first time I've entered this challenge, the theme was a christmas card based about an inspirational photo of a postbox. I made this card for the challenge which I will then give to my great Auntie for Christmas. It's my first easel card and I was really surprised how easy it was to made, I'll be making some more christmas cards using this type of card.

Welcome to my blog

Thanks for looking at my blog. I've only recently discovered the big crafting community that can be found on the web, so decided to set up my own blog. I'll update it when I can with cards I've made for different competitions and special occasions.
