and this is my attempt..

Hanglar Girl and Teddy

and a close up of her…isn’t she cute a lovely hAnglar & stAnglar image which I was sent as a RAK. 

Hanglar Girl and Teddy-close up

I have used Crate Paper-Katlin range which I adore. As mentioned before, the image is a H&S (when O when will be able to buy these in the UK she cries) I have used ribbon roses, wire curls with swarovski crystals on the end for a bit of sparkle.  The punch used for the two sections is a SU punch, Ribbon, flat back pearls and a Martha Stewart rose leaf punch.  I think thats about it, I love your comments so feel free to leave yours- bye for now Jo XX

I have used the Mojo Monday Sketch here

and thought I would make another card using a  Christmas Sugar Nellie Stamp..well here she is

Sugar Nellie Top Fold

Again I have used the Colorful Christmas Papers from My Minds Eye which I bought from David and Brenda at www.craftobsessions.co.uk. I have also used stickles and of course crystals and ribbonwhich I also bought from them.  Here is a close up of Maggie…

Wow – She’s enormous !!!! I really love using these funky colours for Christmas cards…something a bit different from the normal !!!!

Well I always have the Sugar Nellie Blog as one of my tabs on “tinternet” and today Karen asked to see Chrsitmas cards using Sugar Nellie stamps…well I only have one that is vaguely Christmassy and I wasn’t “feeling the vibe” to use it so decided to festive up one of the Manga Chicks….I also attempted a tri-fold card using one of the tutorials on Split Coast Stampers…here is my card, I hope you like…

I have attempted the challenge over on the Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog which can be found here..

http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/2009/08/friday-sketchers-66-sponsored-by-simon.html

and here is my card…

Heartfelt Wishes

I just love the colour combination of the Turquoise and the Orange…the paper is from Mt Minds Eye and is from the Bloom & Grow range. The stamp is the C C Swiss Pixie – Heidi who I absolutely adore. I have stickled her wings and I have used my Prisma Pencils to colour her….although I am getting a hankering for some Pro-Markers which I just can’t ignore !!

Here is a close up of her…

Bethany Angel

I have used the Lime Rickey range of papers from Basic Grey and also Bethany Angel from High Hopes Stamps..I love the combination of colours with her slightly hippy look.  I have also used for the first time my Edge Distresser from Heidi Swapp, I have had it for years and NEVER used it, I will from now on.
