This turned out to be a great mistake. I took a class and it involved these sponges and afterwards to clean them off I used a piece of glossy cardstock that I did an "oops" with the sun. Well it turned out like clouds! I was not intending that and I think if I tried it again it would not tunr out so well. So I came home and added some blue and purple and the dove flying in the center. It reminded me of that famous midieval painting where all these people with angels are going towards the light. Anyway I added a dark blue and purple border and I embossed with blue pearl the snowflakes. I got my Christmas cards done in the nick of time. I hope you enjoy them:)

Snow Queen

I love fairy tales so I thought, let's use a fairy and make her a Snow Queen...but not so mean:) Again it is the green and light blue with brad(s). I used my cuddle bug for the snowflake design and then i coloured the snowflakes with tombow markers and the circles also in a light green(shows up darker here). I stamped the fairy in silver and embossed her in silver and then coloured her in. I placed light blue brads in four corners and finished it off with a nice saying for Christmas.

snowflake geometric

This version is using green and light blue with a brad. I have this lovely stamp(my hubby spoiled me). I used lightblue card stock and stamped it with gold dye ink and embossed it with dark green (kind of hard to see). I then took light green cardstock and embossed with sparkly light blue and then used a dark green and again the light blue embossed. I used the snowflake brad in the middle and I hung a dove with silver thread. I finished it off with light blue and green crystals.

Fantasy Poinsettia

OK this card I just could not take a decnt picture of but it will have to do. This is for the dark Blue and purple with a snowflake. I got this stamp for my birthday from my hubby. I used the dark blue and purple pigment ink and then I embossed with psychedelic and purple glitter. I used chalk to colour inbetween and I added the dnowflake in the middle. I finished it off with blue and silver glossy cardstock and purple card stock at the end

Angel By My Shoulder

Today's challenge at 365 Cards was Sunday design challenge(OK I was just looking at the site and you ever have a brain freeze with memory so apologies if I forgot the right title). I decided to combine the challenge with part of the challenge for Christmas Cards All Year Round. I still have 4 more cards to do for June Challenge at that site but here is todays. I took glossy cardstock in brown(could be bronze but I am saying brown:) I used the cuttlebug for the pink and stickled the snowflakes. I also used the cuttlebug for the pink cutout but I must be doing something wrong because it did not cut all the way through so I had to take the exacto knife(which I hate using) and cut the pieces out. I had a sticker with the angel and then finished it with a large flower and small pink crystal flowers. Have a terrific rest of the day!

Be Free

Well all caught up...kinda:)) This is my version of the silhouette. I am not sure if it is correct but I enjoyed making it. I have had a fair bit of.... blechh occur. My hubby was laid off, same day our AC didn't work..and we were suppoed to have it fixed a month before. 2 days later I saw a dear friend of mine get into a car accident. She is OK but shaken up and I am certain quite sore. I will not ever get the image out of my head and my heart just went out to her. I just wanted to hug her and say all will be OK when i saw it happen. Thankfully all is well. I am hoping there will be no more surprises and before you feel bad for me, you will now want to throw a pillow at me:). My Michael and I are still going to go to Europe in Sept. It is funny but has anyone watched "The Bucket List?" I love that movie and it does make one think. So one can always wait til one thinks it will be better but, in life, you just never know so one has to grab the opportunity because it may not come around again. I had to wax philosophy today so...sorry. I decided to do horses because they represent freedom and strength to me. I used glossy white paper and stamped them in black and used different coloured ink pads and with sponges I created the background. On that note I wish everyone a beautiful day or moment. Enjoy the aromas, sights and tastes and may cardmaking bring a great joy and peace to everyone.

Well I Believe this is from yesterday at 365 day card. You could only use a stamped image and a stamped sentiment. I got this lovely stamp from Michael for my birthday. I used watercolour paper and used my tombow markers to colour in the image and then the sentiment...well I do believe in that too. I thought it went well together. I then ripped the bottom and then watercoloured the edges.

OK this card was not on any list so I guess I cheated:) I made this card for someone at my work who lost a very dear friend to cancer and so it was in honour of her friend and their friendship together.

OK I had to do this card because you had this a a couple of weeks back. Use the image you provided and create a card. It was green, black and white. So many did such beautiful work-I was inspired but I was not able to get to it til now. I embossed white on white and then brayered black over top. Used green and stamped a bow and used black glitter embossing powder. I think the others did much better but I am OK with this card:)

Love is a Rainbow

Well I have been gone for a bit. Break out the wine cos here I go...Car repairs followed by needing a new car (well used), sprained ankle pretty badly, My beautiful lab is now on arthritis meds-vet and I just had to go through with a colonoscopy.Yuck Yuck Yuck. Today I am on my feet-OK I hope all of you who read this had some wine to go with my whine:) Now on to fun stuff. I am hoping to make some of the challenges from the past week or so but this is today's. I love the music, wasn't that from the muppet movie. kermit sang it...with John Denver?? Is my memory going?? Well This music was so sweet so this is my version. I tried to pick out the rainbow and the word Love was in there and stars so I decided to invent this card. I used my brayer on white glossy cardstock and used the Kaleidacolor Dye inkpad called Spectrum. I have a brass stencil with the pussy cats so I coloured them in with black ink (kinda smudged but oh well). I used yellow cardstock as a background and finished it off with black felt that has glitter in it. I just can't get rid of glitter. Oh yeah and I used the red Stickles on the heart between the cats. Enjoy the beautiful day.
