Pearly Christmas

I don't have any sequins so pearls it is.

It is a little hard to see from this but I have
embossed snowflakes on the white card and added the pearls on them
I started with red pearls but they just didn't look right so off they came.
The gorgeous stamp is of course a Penny Black a new one that I had been itching 
to use, just think he is so cute.
Finished off with lots of glitter of course.

Am entering this in:
52CCT- sequins and or pearls
Make it Monday - Anything goes.

I have about 10 days of super slow internet now as I have used my allowance all up
so blog hopping will take a back seat.
Of course I should increase my internet allowance
but I have such a good deal it would mean paying more than triple per month to do so.

Thanks for dropping in.

................It's not a Christmas card bet that was a bit of a shock to you all

Felt like a bit of a change today so went looking for something to do
and found The Lollypop Ladies who are wanting Musks with spots.
Didn't think I had anything near the colour and nothing spotty but look what I found.
and just enough of the orchid card to use as a mount.
The flower stamp is a Victoria's secret and I have no idea of the sentiment.
The card is very CAS because I followed the sketch at

Christmas lights

I have dug out another old favorite stamp this time a Hero Arts
to light up my Chrissy card.
I stamped this with black Fabrico and used psychedelic embossing powder.
They really catch the light, but you can only glimpse it right at the top
the camera did not reproduce it well.
 The smallest of my oblong dies was just the right width to cut out a frame
but not long enough so I had to move it down.
The greeting was a Lucy stamp from years ago too and this I stamped 
with the Fabrico but used clear embossing this time.
I used liquid pearls for the stars and the sparkle.
The lights were coloured with my copics

From this photo you can have a peek inside and see that
I mounted the frame.
Some bakers twine completes the card.
Not the usual Christmas colours.

Am entering this in:
52CCT - Baubles
Christmas stamping AYL - I used heat embossing, Twine and Copic markers
CHNC - Window or frame
CHNC 2-Anything goes

Shades of green

I am not going to tell you my first card got filed in the waste bin.
 I have only scraps of green card left so have put it on my shopping list
but don't know when I will get to shop.
We do have a Quilt and craft fair coming up in Hobart
at the end of the month but doubt there will be much in the way of
paper craft there.
However I found these trees cut from an old Sizzix die in a box marked Xmas things.
Amazing I am not usually so well organised.

Now am quite happy with this very CAS card

Am entering this in:
 52CCT - Shades of green
CHNC - Used die cut or Punches
CHNC 2 - Anything goes 
Make it Monday - Anything goes

Lots of Holly

Glad to say my recovery is going well now have begun driving again and
that is fine until I have to back out of a parking spot so looking for lots of easy parking.
It is good to be feeling human again.

This is the week 52CCT have a sketch to follow.
However I am never sure whether I will follow closely or go off on a tangent
I just go where my card takes me.

As you see have used lots of Holly today.  The stamp is an old PSX one from 1999
and one of my favorites though it hasn't been used for a long time now.
It always stamps up so beautifully, have coloured with copics and then
used dimensional magic. 
 The very tiny holly stamp was from
Amazing creations don't think the company still exsists.
I coloured that with gel pens as without colour they were lost
The greeting is from LOTV.
Don't know where the holly paper came from but have been saving
this up for a while, now only have scraps left.
