Finally got to Ismaki...... and OCC and CCT......

(LOL)Well it has been ages since I have played along with Ismaki!! Since school started Mondays have just been crazy!! But I had to try the sketch out and needed to make a couple more Christmas cards for the neighbors.Can you tell I have been playing with my photo editor!! (LOL) I found these little bells and thought they would be cute for a card. But they don't make much noise ~ oh well! The option is glitter. The flowers are covered in glitter and I have used my glitter pen alot!! I also added alot of glimmer to my snowman using Twinkling H2o's.

Paper: Basic Grey ~ Dasher
Inks: distress inks
Accessories: flowers ~ Prima, twine and bells ~ stash. rub-ons ~ Creative Imaginations


This card I made for another sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner. I have also used my word window punch and the twig punch for the challenge at CCT which is to use punches!!I can't remember where I got this image from but I thought she looked like she could be one of Santa's elves!

Paper: Basic Grey Wassail
inks: distress inks
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Micheals, flowers ~ Prima, Spacers ~ Marlene's eBay store

Well thanks so much for stopping by and hopefully I get around to everyone tonight! I have just been so sleepy earlier. I think it is because it is starting to get dark at 4:30 already!!
Oh well have a great day!! Oh thanks to everyone who congratulated me on becoming a sweetie ~ I really appreciate your kind words:)
