Christmas is coming

I haven't joined in with any blog challenges for a very long time but decided that maybe I should get back in the saddle and try to get my mojo back.

 I am entering this card in

September? What happened to July & August

Well what can I say but hello I'm still here.
Been far too much going on in our lives the past couple of months but I have decided to try and get back into blogging.
So without further ado here are some cards I've created in my absence.

This Gorjuss Girl card is one I made for our nieces young daughter Emily. I coloured the image using Copics and used Crealies patchwork and Sue Wilson dies.

This one is for Emily's twin brother Thomas. I have used Visible Image Stand Out stamp set on a background created using brusho's through a stencil with a touch of stickles.

This final one is another Visible Image stamp onto a background created by taking the brusho's off the stencil used for the Stand Out card. Two for the price of one.

Hoping to get back soon.

New family member

There's been a lot going on since I was last here.
My hubby John was admitted to ITU and spent 2 weeks in hospital
I put my back out.
However we had some special news on 3rd June our beautiful grandson Samuel James was born.
Here he is looking peaceful and content.

So here is the card I made using the Crealies patchwork die, LOTV stamps and the papers are from one of Jayne Nestorenko's CD's

 This next card was made for my Grandson Elliot's 13th birthday on 13th using Visible Image stamps and Brushos

My friend and fellow Cliff fan Michelle was 50 yesterday so this next one is a box card I made for her. The flowers were stamped and cut from some card I had coloured using brushos sprayed with Glimmer Mist instead of water to give a lovely shimmery effect.
