I love this colour combination but I don't think the photo does it justice. The backing card is a opalescent burgundy/brown colour and the snowflakes match this.

I'm not sure about the finished result of this card, once again I just think it needs something extra but I'm not sure what that is. I'll probably keep looking at it and hopefully inspiration will hit before Christmas!

As I'm sure you all know by now my internet connection in Devon is temperamental to say the least. For this reason I have left posts scheduled to appear on here daily, so please do check back over the next few days and I'll try to log on and let you know what I'm up to if I can. I am planning on returning the weekend of the 1st November, so I'll catch up with you all then if not before.
I'm going to turn the word verification for comments back on while I'm away as I won't be able to check for spam messages and don't want you all bothered by them.
See you soon
I've used papers from the Papermania Flowery Pack and a peel off sentiment.

This weeks sketch:
You can't see the vellum layer very well in the picture. I've stamped it with a smaller version of the same stamp as I've used in the centre of the card. I used white stazon and it is quite a subtle effect which is why it doesn't show that well I guess.
2 Anita's stamps
Turquoise and clear gems

Here is sketch no. 24 from Friday Sketchers:
Challenge no. 35 on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog was to use ribbon, I often use ribbon so this was a nice easy one to achieve!
An image which I received in a swap, (sorry not sure where it originates from!)

I've finally managed to get away from Christmas cards and make a much needed birthday card instead. I love using blues and like the colour combinations on the card. I'm not so happy with the image as I think I could have chosen better colours and also the paper has creased/wrinkled slightly as I used thick paper instead of my watercolour pad because I couldn't find it!
The papers are from DCWV
The stamp is from the 'Dotty Dollie' set
Sentiment is a Papermania rub on

Once again I've made another Christmas card, my brain seems to be well and truly stuck in Christmas mode now. I've got some birthday cards to make but I just can't seen to get away from the festive ideas! I've gone for really traditional red and green and used my current favourite stamp.
I've used the following:
Penny Black 'Xmas Kiss' stamp which has been coloured with watercolour pencils
Papermania Merry Christmas stamp
Backing paper from the Dovecraft 'Tis the Season' Pack
Red narrow ric-rac ribbon

I decided to make another Christmas Card as I've still got loads to make although the list is getting gradually shorter!
A Forever Friends Sticker which came free on the front of a magazine
Backing paper from the Dovecraft 'Christmas Traditional' Pack
Green paper from the Dovecraft 'Victorian Christmas' Pack
Plain mustard yellow cardstock
Christmas domed stickers, (not sure where these are from as they are no longer on their bag!)
