Hello everyone are you getting ready for big jolly fella in red? I'm excited although stressed as well, worrying as always if everything is going to be done & ready...........I do it every single year. Oh worst part is I've got food shopping to do yet..................aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhoo's I thought I would show you the cards I made for Natalie's group/class at her daycare centre. The groups are small, luckily for me lol, so all I had to do was 9 cards. So I went & got some digi images that would not take me as long to colour............... & grabbed the perfect paper pad with fab colours ;0)
WARNING PIC HEAVY!!
90% of these images are the DigiStamp Boutique thanks to my lovely blogging/DT buddy Lisa who makes fabulous cards & therefore drove me to purchasing these images ;0)
Seriously though they are fab for those quick makes, especially for people like me who normally take 3-5 hours to make a card, thats not counting how long it takes me to colour an image.
This cute snowman is called 'Sketchy Snow Person' & is seriously so easy to colour I used him 3 times. However as I dont like making the same card twice each one is coloured differently.
These 2 have very similar papers so just thought I would show you that they are in fact different, so still each card is unique & not repeated exactly ;0)
These 2 images are the ones I saw on Lisa's Blog & what made me go over & spend my pennies lol. Look how cute they are ;0)
The image with the spotty paper is 'Cute Polar Bear' & the one on the right is 'Festive Hug' & I added drops of snow with white enamel.
These images are the 'Cute Christmas Frames', I love how they pop out of the frame a little, especially the snowman ;0)
Ok now this image I fell in love with but its from a different digi shop & one I havn't used for soooooooo long. However when I went over & saw all her yummy images...........well lets say this isn't the only one that went into my bastket lol.
This image is 'Hedgehogs Kiss' from Di's Digi Stamps. I also added glitter & snow drops.
I had to use pink card behind the cards to show them as the white was blending in with the white background of my photo booth lol.
The insides on these are blank as they are quick & simple makes.
Ok products used were Card Blanks & red & green card from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart around the page punch to do the fancy edges top & bottom of the red card. The sentiment is the same on all of them & its LOTV 'Handwritten Christmas Phrases'. The paper pad I love because of the colours, its perfect for younger peeps I think........... its MME 'Mistletoe Magic'. All images were coloured with Copics, sorry I didnt write the colours down as I basically grabbed a load & threw them on my kitchen table & set to colouring lol.
Well thats it from me for now............or until I get time to come back on again lol. I actually meant to post these yesterday but had last minute christmas present shopping to do & other stuff that by the time I finished I ended up in a dark room with a migraine lol.
So I will be round though this morning & later today sometime............family day today, my fave day of the week. Hopefully Natalie is up to going out as it was after 5am this morning before she settled in her bed. Yes I've told her santie is watching her. If not everyone will just come here so its all good anyways lol.
Ok enough babbling from me thank you all for your lovely comments mmwah

Lotsa huggles from me to you
