Here's to a great 2013!

I would just like to wish all my dear blogging friends a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
Hope you manage to keep your resolutions. I've decided to eat more nutritionally and to be more organised but as I say this every year and fail at the first hurdle I'm not feeling terribly optimistic. Who knows this year could be different so I'll let you know in a few weeks how it's going!!
Before I go here is a card I made earlier this month using a free Papermania stamp

And this is a collection consisting of card, boxes and gift bag I made for a very dear friend for Christmas. The papers are Bo Bunny and the bauble stamp is one I bought many years ago.
Well folks eat drink and be merry and I'll see you in 2013
Very Best Wishes

A festive collection

Hello dear friends, hope your Christmas plans are coming together ok.
I think I'm pretty much sorted but there's always something that crops up at the last minute.
Thought I would share a little collection of cards with you all following the same theme and using the beautiful holly stamp.
I love this stamp, it's so classical and beautiful to colour. I've used copics to colour them and although it doesn't show on the photo the petal shaped  diecut was edged with bronze glitter with cinnamon added to give a lovely Christmassy scent.
This next card was made for a Campa van lover.
The background of this card was created in Craft Artist and the gorgeous Campa is a digi stamp which I bought from the very talented Beth at Sqidgy digi and I coloured it with copics as usual.
Thank you for visiting

A West Ham fan

Todays card is one I made for my Nephews birthday.
As you can tell he is an avid West Ham supporter so the colour combo didn't take much thought.
As in my previous post I must apologise for the fuzzy photo (must be the camera!)
Anyway I'm sure you will recognise the fabulous numbers from Jayne Nestorenko's Patchwork Polly collection. I coloured them with copics and was fortunate to find the sheet of matching paper amongst my stash.  I used the Clarity letterbox stamps that I picked up at the NEC for the name.
See you soon

Birthday clock

Hi there bloggers, hope you are getting organised for the festive fun.
Wish I could say I am but I know it will all come good in the end.
The card I am sharing with you today is one I made for my buddy Adele.
Apologies for the fuzzy photo, I'll blame the camera but somehow think it might have been the photographer (moi).
The embossing was done with an Embossability and the petal shape diecut is by Xcut. The centre centre month clock I created on my computer. 
Well hope you like it.
Thank you for visiting.

Taj Mahal

The card I want to share with you today is using another of the Grande Journey stamps this time the Taj Mahal.
I coloured some card using Distress Inks (can't remember which colours), then stamped the image before cutting it using the Spellbinders tag die. The border is also a Spellbinder die. I scored a trellis design using the Hougie for the background and added some Cosmic Shimmer glue pearls.
Thank you for stopping by today and for your kind comments which are very much appreciated.
Bye for now
