Christmas Creations

Good Morning hope your all keeping warm and snug in these hurrendous temperatures.Now they say this may continue into the New Year just what you need to here -7 here last night thats when we got home around 8.30pm.Yesterday morning unfortunately had to go out to drs.My the temp then said -4 during the day.....omg.Never mind i came home wrapped up warm heating on and sat and did some creating.
I have finally finished all my custom orders now have to start on my personnel cards.
So today i have 3 cards to show you two i am keeping and one is my Younger Daughters . request.
"Oh Christmas Tree"
This has to be one of my favourite Tildas out of all the Christmas collection this year.
I have coloured her with copics and added /glamour dust crystal to the coat and the edges of the branches.all card is Stampin Up.The design Paper is from Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses".
I have used this beautiful white ribbon with crimbo trees this was a gift feom a friend in USA.Really lovely cotton rich ribbon with cute trees on.The flowrs are Prima.The Tree brad from last years stash.The green Brad is Kaiser Craft in the flower.
The swirl is from the Marianne design Dies and also used nesties Labels 8.The we pearls are from Kaiser craft also.Sentiment is dovecraft one stamped in memento black ink.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge :F is For Foilage

"Ho Ho Ho...Santa is a Coming"


This card is a custom made well for my youngest daughter.Whihc well tried to get her to have some extras on ie flowers ...you know me flowers are my downfall.But no strict instructions and i know if io had put them on ,id have just had to re do.This is for her best friend .
The design papers is a sheet left over from last year not sure the make.The card is all Stampin Up whisper white.The image is a Crissy Armstrong image "Jolly Santa"i think?.It's coloured with copics and glamour dust again added to santas coat and beard .Which chloe helped do .The lace yes is wonky but daughter also stuck that down...lol.So she has put her stamp on the card sop to speak and the glamour dust all over my craftroom floor...lol.The sentiment she wanted me to use is a Peel off from Papermaina,and then added 4 wee start to the corner of the card.
Hope you like it ,it is of course joint effort,not that ofay with her using my copics just yet..lol
This card we are enteringinto the Christmas Cards all Year Round Monthly challenge.Which i love only wish id found it sooner than October.But hey will be there in January !Now this months challenge for December is:Santa either piccy or the word santa on.To be entered into the prize draw you have to make 5 cards .This i have to say is the last one that completes my collection.
"Friends Are Like Snow Flakes"

My last card to show you this morning is a sentiment card as i have followed the sketch at Charisma Cards.which is sketch and a twist.The twist being verse or sentiment no image,only on the card.


I have used Stampin up whisper white card,design Papers Pepper and friends Christmas.
Ribbon is from Wild Orchard crafts.Brads are all Papermania.The pointsetta is a Marianne design die,with small pearls from Kaiser Craft.
The star and snow flake is Papermania.
The verse it self is stamped with Black memento ink and is from Magnolia.

The piccy too light but i was trying to get close up .
So you could maybe read the verse
