Challenge 16 at Little Claires

The theme this month is for 'Family Christmas', so I decided to use the 'Room With A View - Nativity' stamp set.  Here's my card:

I used Kraft paper to give a rustic feel but glammed it up with Kaleidascope embossing powder - love this stuff!  The circle sentiment and crown stamp are all from the set.  I coloured the image and sentiment with Promarkers.

Hope you're all ready for Christmas!  I have a few odds and ends to get but I'm just about done now.  Just as well really, as I've had a bad cold/cough for the last few days and haven't had the energy to do anything.  Moan over ... !

Have a fab week xx

PS.  The prize for this month's competition is a £10 voucher from Little Claire whoopee! and just to let you know, there is a sale at Little Claire with some very yummy goodies, be quick though, they wont hang around at those prices.  Click HERE to look at the sales items.

Fabulous shoes and handbags

Here are some cards I've made using the fabulous Christmas Diva Doodles from Pink Petticoat.

The first two are made using a Handbag shaped card ...

... the papers are from Pink Petticoat too ...
 ... and there are even inserts to complete your card.

I love these downloads as they are so stylish and make a refreshing change from traditional themes.

Enjoy the rest of your week

A monkey on a Christmas card? !!!

Yes, I was asked to make a Christmas card with a monkey on it ... and since it's for my son-in-law to be, I thought I'd better oblige!!!

Here it is:

It's a gate-fold card.  I gave the monkey some Christmas-red shorts, added some Inkadinkado flourishes, Flower Soft snow and Card Candi ... et voila!

The monkey image was a freebie - if anyone recognises it, please let me know who drew it, so I can credit them :)

Teapot gift set

Here is a cute little set I made for my mum's friend.  It was her birthday last week and she's feeling a bit under the weather, so I hope this cheered her up :)
I used the Teapot Shaped card and Teabag Holder, both available from The Cutting Cafe.  The card even comes with a matching envelope which I decorated to match the teapot.
Inside the Teabag holder, I have put a couple of Fennel teabags with brewing instructions.
There are tons of fab files and inspiration at the Cutting Cafe, pop over and have a look!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend xx
