Fashion at Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all,

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas ......did you get spoilt :)
We had a lovely time at my parents but it was all over so quickly.

I am here to share a card for the new  challenge over at Winter Wonderland  - Fashion....

We want to see you cards including clothes, bags or shoes that are fashion related.
This can be a non Christmas card.....we are having a break for a few weeks from Christmas cards.
 We are sponsored by Crafters Companion 

The lucky winner will have a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.

Yet again I have a clean and simple card using a Penny Black image called Mimi in Paris......Oooo la la!!!


The image is coloured with Polychromo pencils with some highlights of glitter glue.
The sentiment is from Craftwork cards
Ribbon from Meiflower
Twine from stash

Hope you can join us for the challenge.

Now what shall I do today?  I have a few days of work so I might be able to get my Craft room a bit more organised :)  I have so much stuff to get rid of too!

Its very windy here so hope wherever you are you are keeping safe.  Have a good day.

CAS again.....

Hello to you all.
Hope you are all having a good week so far.

I had planned to share quite a few cards over the last few days but it hasn't really gone to plan.

Mike's eldest brother died suddenly last Wednesday from a heart problem which was a bit of a shock to say the least :(    It has put everything back into perspective again and hope that out of the sadness will come something positive and it will bring the rest of his family closer together :)    The funeral won't be until the New Year so just taking each day as it comes and being there for Mike and his family.

I did manage to put this super speedy CAS card together at the weekend for some inspiration for the Clean and Simple challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink
I think it is almost too CAS!

The image is called All Lit Up and is perfect for any last minute cards as it is very quick to colour.   £1.75 from the Ladybug Crafts Ink online shop :)

Well I am off to Slimming World now to see if I have lost anymore weight if I have I will be a happy teddy :)

Catch you all soon.
Thanks for stopping by.

Gingerbread Men and Candy Canes....

When I lived in California  as a child I remember two things that were always around at Christmas ......Candy Canes and Gingerbread!
I have a card to share today that features both of these. 

This card is made using There She Goes clear stamps illustrated by the super talented Torico.  I have combined two sets, Buckets of Love and BOL Holiday additions.

The image is coloured with Polychromo pencils on white card stock from Paper Mill Direct....I use this now for the majority of my pencil colouring as you get a good result with the shading.
Just need to brush up on my photography skills now!!!

I have added stickles and glossy glaze to the image to finish it off.

I would like to enter the following challenges 

Jellypark Challenge - Christmas
Stampin for the Weekend - Feeling Festive
Totally Papercrafts Ho, ho for the Holidays
Suzy Bees - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your evening.
Hugs Sally xxx
