A card at Last!!

Its been such a busy Summer and I have had hardly anytime in my craft room, we have had lots of visitors ( that's what happens when you live near the sea lol) and the weather has been glorious.
At last I had time to make this card for the "Christmas Kickstart Challenge #18".

The challenge is to use their header as inspiration.

So I decided to make a shaker card using the Simon Says Stamp "Holiday Frame" die and adding lots of sequins for sparkle. The background paper is  turquoise and sparkly which doesn't really show up in the photo.  The snowman is from the Heffy Doodles "Wanna build a snowman" stamp set which I have coloured with Zig markers.  I then layered up onto a Turquoise card base.

I am also adding this card to the current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"
We have another couple of busy weeks coming up but I hope to fit in some card making too.

New Cards!!

It seems ages since I have posted on my blog!!  We have been away for a while house sitting at my cousins house again and looking after all his animals and then when we got home we had a major computer failure!!  It was a complete disaster but after a week at the repair shop it seems to be up and running again although the computer techie man says its getting old and we are going to need a new one soon!! Aaaagh I hate having to set everything up again, lets hope it lasts longer than he thinks!

At least I have had time to make a couple of cards although I have also had trouble with my mojo !  This first card is for the Simon Says Flickr Challenge "One Layer" .  I used the centre Cut Flowers and stamped and embossed in white.  I then coloured with my Zigs and cut out the hexagonal shape,  adhering another hexagonal to the back to form the card.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and  embossed in Rose Gold powder.

This second card used a panel that I had coloured in my stash made from the Simon Says Gerbera background, I layered it up and added the die cut sentiment.  I will add this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge  "Add a Die Cut".

Hope you are having a great weekend
