ArtbyMiran DT card

Morning all,.... back to a card today :)  A new challenge is starting over on the ArtbyMiran Challenge blog,   I have used the cute Hey Miss Santa, by MiRan, another gorge image to colour up.

I wanted the main focus to be on the image for this card, so kept the card quite simple (for me, lol)
Had the papers in my Xmas stash box, so no idea where I got those from.  

I have coloured the image with copics. Using ...

Skin  E00, E04, E11, R20
Hair E13, E15, E17, E18, E19
Dress R81 R83 R85
Jacket G20, G21, G24

Holly Die by Cheery Lynn
Poinsettia Die by Marianne Creatables.

Have fun joining in with the challenge, and make sure you pop over and check out the awesome makes by the rest of the DT... 

be back soon with something else... craft wise :)

Polka Doodles Digi Queen Inspiration Card (Wk 10)

Good Morning all, sorry I am a tad late with my posting, but my computer is dying on me.. Time to go shopping for a Chrimbo present for myself I think... If its not overheating, its switching itself off.. probably due to overheating... Dog hairs and Dust !  and there are only so many times I can have it taken apart.... so I do apologise..  but it just didn't want to play yesterday, for me to schedule, and true to form.. I overslept this morning... typical ! 

So... a little bit late, but here is my card card for this weeks Polka Doodles Digi Queen Design Team.

I have used the fabulous Etty Bear Sewing digi stamp.

I have coloured her with copics, 
E30, E31. E33, E35, E37. B0000, B000, B1, B2, B5. R81, R20.

The Embossing folder is Boofle Mixed Buttons I have had this for ages and never used before, but as soon as I started to colour up Etty, I just knew what I wanted to use as a backing... I lightly rubbed over some of the buttons using chalks.. added three buttons from stash, and some ribbon and bow...  The Die is by X cut.   

Make sure you pop over to take a look at the wonderful creations by the rest of the Digi Queen Team, and there is still time to join in the current challenge

Have a fun day... hugs Jackie.

Cuddly Buddly DT Card

Been awol far too long AGAIN !... too many projects on the go at one time I feel... so... with that I have left my Shabby Chic furniture and object upcycles to one side, my decopauging of various items to one side, my jewellery making... again.. to one side.... and now I am going to add a card... whoop whoop.. back to where it all began... lol..

I am having the total pleasure of working with Kim at Cuddly Buddly and have had some fantastically cute stamps, to work with.    Today I have used Jolly Santa... and coloured him up with copics. adding a bit of glamour dust, as you do ! lol..... and using the fabulous Silent night papers by our very own Kim (at Cuddly Buddly).    

The Image, can be found HERE... and the sentiment is also included in the stamp set... bonus !!! I had the little charm and ribbon in my stash and thought it perfect for this.
