Heartfelt Christmas Wishes Cake Stand Card

I've used 'Love Santa x' stamps again Coloured with Promarkers
Red Roses and Rosebuds from WOC with added Glitz it clear frosting
Ivory Button Twine from The Ribbon Girl

CAS With love at Christmas

Yep you read right... Christmas! June!
We're now half way through the year, can you believe it?! And I decided I'm ready to make my first Christmassy card!
I was actually quite excited to look through my Xmas craft stash again!
I've not made many Clean and Simple cards before so this was very hard for me to resist putting gems flowers ribbons etc on but I really wanted to try just a nice Clean simple design!

The Stamp Set is called 'Love Santa x' which I got free with Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine last year and this is the first time I've used them!
Coloured with Promarkers and added faux stitching around the edge using a Letraset fine line drawing pen
The paper is from Raspberry Road

This cupcake stand is so cute I think I'm going to make another card with it today but add some pretty embellishments this time :-)

Hope you're having a great weekend!

I also used Glitz it glitter glue around the Birthday sentiment and on the edges of all the petals so it's all glittery and pretty :-)

We've had no phone line or internet all week (again!! BT are making a nasty habit of this! 3rd time this year! The 1st time it lasted 3weeks! And the 2nd time was only 6 weeks ago!)  so frustrating!
Anyways I've got a bit of blog catching up to do now and a few cards to post! If I have the energy lol
So... The Ribbon Girls blog challenge this week is Ivory! Not a colour I've ever really used in my card making so mum routed through all my stash for me for ivory bits!

GOAL! Come on England! LOTV Card

Hi there
This months blog challenge at Lili of the Valley is Male/Sporty and I wanted to try something a bit different! The World Cup has now started (or so I hear...) and England's 1st game is tonight so this card is perfect!

I used a pre coloured image from LOTV I cut out the goal, grass and flags all free hand Made a little trophie on white card and coloured with Promarkers Made the GOAL sentiment using Studio G Alphabet stamps, and used foam pads to attach. For the goal net I used 1mm cotton thread and weaved it all
This took me quite a while and I got a bit sticky with glue :-P but love the result, great for a footy fan

Hope you like it and come on England!

Good morning bloggers!
Hope you're enjoying the sunshine!
My skin hasn't seen daylight in over 2 years now! How mad is that! Time really does fly by while I'm bedridden in a dark quiet room - I can't even get to a window, plus it's far too bright for me!

I've not made many new baby cards before so this was a nice change for me!
And I got to use some stamps I've not used before now! Oh and I used my first image from the LOTV babies die cut images sheet I bought nearly 3 years ago!! :-P

Such a gorgeous image!

I Used:
