crafty boots challenge - Christmas

Another crafty boots challenge- Christmas, but before I share my
christmas project I would like to thank everyone who joined in on our blog hop
and thank you  all for such lovely comments, and now for one of the lucky winners
who was selected at random 
                                   BUNNY !!
please email Stephanie - Emma  at to claim your crafty goodies
Congratulations !!! hope you enjoy your prize x

and now for my crafty boots christmas project
The image is a digi stamp from Cuddly Buddly and I coloured it use pro markers
the 'when santa got stuck up a chimney' stamp is a CLARITY stamp,
I had to get this as I thought it is brilliant for childrens cards
I made a large paper rosette out of paper I had in my stash
the snowflakes are cut using a snowflake die from spellbinders,
the  backing paper is also from cuddly buddly, I also glazed the star 
and glittered the snow but its hard to see as I'm not that good at taking photos lol.
I hope to be doing lots of crafting soon as I only have to do my food shopping
then I'm finally finished christmas shopping , yippee ,so hopefully 
I'll have more cards/projects to blog soon
thank you

Christmas cards

some christmas cards I have made over the last few week
the first one is Stampavie holly jolly coloured in using
copic the second card is Stampavie polar present
coloured in using promarkers,the third card is Stampavie
purrfect christmas coloured in using promarkers and last
but not least is Magnolia sweet christmas dreams ,I really enjoyed
making the holly jolly card as the colours are quite bright
and different from the colours we tend to use this time of year
I have been picking my papers first and then taking the colours
from there which I used to do the other way around,but I'm finding
this way better as I am now using colours I would not normally use

Tilda - Santa's little helper

I thought this card would never get finished ,it was doomed from the start.
First I dropped a black pencil on Tilda's face ,so I started again ,then
I tipped half a bottle of sansodor over my finished Tilda,so as they
say 3rd time lucky!!
I coloured this image in using my new found favourites
prismacolor pencils blended with sansodor(lucky I had some left)
paper from my stash ,Martha Stewart punch and some flowers from my stash

with them,will have to dig them back out , the front off the card
is acetate and paper  I had in my stash for forever,will have to
improve on my photographic skills(or lack of in my case)I think.
