Christmas Peace

Good Afternoon, not had much time for posting and crafting this last week, I have been to see my granddaughter's in their Christmas plays, Advent Services etc, all were enjoyable and it was lovely to see them all doing their different performances and singing. Emma (6) was a narrator in her Nativity play and read really well, Jude (10) sang a duet at her Advent Service and sang beautifully, Abbie (10) played Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and peformed beautifully, they all brought tears to my eyes and I was so proud of each and every one.

I am now on the last lap with my cards, just a few special ones left so today I am showing you another two for my granddaughters.

The first one has the image "Little Ivy" from LOTV, coloured with Copics, papers are from my stash, flowers from "Wild Orchid" and I added Stickles, pearls, ribbon and computer generated sentiment. I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Vintage Christmas

Good Morning, hope the weather is fine with you we have had some snow over the past couple of days but it hasn't lasted too long though the temperature seems to have dropped dramatically this week. I have a busy week with three different granddaughter's Christmas plays to attend, but each one will be enjoyable. Well onto my card for today which is for our challenge at "My Time to Craft" which is Vintage Christmas, the image I used is from a Graphic 45 Scrapbook paper and I added some Stickles. The bp is by Bo Bunny and I added some gingham ribbon and some holly from Prima.

Icy Angel

I have a card today for the challenge at Cutie Pie which is "Pastel Christmas". I decided on pink for a change and thought it would be suitable for one of my granddaughters this Christmas, though I have yet to decide which granddaughter! My image is one of the new LOTV stamps - Summer "Icy Angel" I have coloured her with Copics and added some Stickles on her wings, I cut her out with a Nestie and added a silver doily behind. The bp is by Bo Bunny and the music is another LOTV stamp which I have stamped onto a scrap from my stash and both papers have been distressed. The border is cut with another of the gorgeous new Memory Box dies and I added some cotton lace with brads to this. The silver corner is cut with a Cuttlebug die and I added pearls, snowflake charm and a computer generated sentiment.
