Cold, Colder, Coldest!

Oh it's reet nippy in't Northwest but not as snowy as elsewhere - all my arthritis is cold so I have cold knees & hips. I have seen a lovely blog called Pinkpuds by Mina who is giving some blog candy to lucky winners - see my sidebar to her site - all she asks is that you tell her what crafty goodies you want from Santa! Her cards are gorg!

I've two today.
This is another Mo Manning digi and I love the child looking back at his/her footprints in the snow. Used my Promarkers and had fun with the dad's jeans; just consider them distressed denim! The card is 6x6" and the image is matted onto white card sprayed with Shimmer Mist, which incidently is all over my hands (klutz or what?)  I made all the embellies, which were great fun!

The second card is A5 size and the image is a free digi from a french blog which I did not make a note of; Promarker and Lace Stickles to colour and mounted on foam with brads at each corner. The pouch is made with the reverse side of the PM 12"Christmas Pack backing paper I used and measures 10.5 x 7.5cm or 3.25x 4.25". It easily holds scratchies, as demonstrated, or gift cards or even cash as the pouch is fastened with self adhesive velcro. I got the idea from watching a demo on CUP TV but just downloading and cutting is not my thing so I hatched a cunning plan........! I can't stop, it's a sickness. I loved the result so much that I finished it off last night when I usually would wait till the better light in the morning. Hoist by my own petard; the holly berries are orange not red, as I thought they were!!

I'm excited because Morag's dog is coming to her this afternoon and she needs a bit of cheering! Also my darling Mum has bought me a Martha Stewart punch for Christmas, ooh the luxury of the easy-to-punch punch. It gave her enormous satisfaction to tell me I was getting a punch from her for Christmas! It made me laugh too but I looked at her sideyways because she was a bit too delighted, if you ask me!

Internet buys have started to arrive, from as far away as Italy, so Morgan will definately get her Roberto Benini DVD for Christmas (she speaks Italian and French fluently).

Arrivederchi Tuotti, Hazel x

  2. I love that Mo Manning digi (have got it too) and the way you have coloured it is great - the footprints just finish it off nicely. That's also a cute digi stamp you have used on the pouch card - another good idea. Elizabeth x
