Christmas Tag Card

Morning All,
 time for another upload, I am off work today full of a cold, sneezing everywhere so its a good job you can't catch these things over the internet.
I've made a few of the card I'm putting on today as they were quite simple to do. 
 I love the look of Kraft card on Christmas cards, I think it works really well. I stamped the image, Penny Black "Stitchery Santa" which I've had
since 1999 and has been a favourite most Christmases.

 He is coloured in with Copics, embellished with a white gel pen, glitter glue and  cut out and layered onto a Sizzix tag that I had stamped with Penny Black "Winter Scroll" in white.  I then layered onto backing paper and green card and onto the Kraft card. I added folky ribbon, sentiment, a little star brad and glitter glue to finish.
Well I'm off for another lemsip, hope the cold doesn't catch you up,
but the crafting bug does.
Thanks for looking

Where Did The Time Go

Well haven't put anything on my blog for months, just haven't been in the crafting mood. Aha but now Christmas is nearly here and I thought I'd better get my crafting act together and get some cards done.
So have been busy in the background stamping, sticking, glittering etc etc. Will start putting a few on here in the next few weeks.

So here is my first "show and tell"

Its a lovely Molly Blooms image, I stamped in Versa Fine Vintage Sepia and then coloured with Copics. I used "Old Paper" Distress ink around the edges of the image and the card. Its layered onto green card and then onto backing paper which is a download that I just can't think of the name right now, will look into it and update when I can. I stamped the Woodware sentiment and punched out and then layered onto a nesti.. Added glitter glue, ribbon and buttons to finish. The card blank itself is a Craftworks card.

Hope youv'e all got your cardmaking mojos in place and are busy with your cards too,

Thanks for looking
