Feathered Friends Christmas Decoration (LOTV)

Image
Hello!
Today I'm sharing my first ever Christmas Decoration!
I used the gorgeous Feathered Friends Stamp and Festive Trimmings Paper from LOTV and also their Classic Christmas pad for the holly leaves



I cut the base from Kraft card, Added string to hang and ribbon with jingle bells from my stash Coloured the image with Promarkers
Used WOC Poinsettias and pearl stamens - painted with red nail varnish (hehe) and red glitter glue. I inked the edges of all the layers, the flowers and holly leaves. I drew and cut the holly leaves by hand and then gave them some shape (definetely wasn't a quick jobby make!)
Then finished with Stickles glitter glue on the snow, and liquid pearl dots around the image and patterned paper!


Love the vintage feel and the glitter finished it off nicely and made it nice and Christmassy :-)
Thanks for popping by! Hope you're all having a lovely crafty week! And thank you so much all those who leave comments! :-)

Patchwork Owl With Love

Hello!
Here's a card I made for my Mum. It's a bit of a sorry card and to tell her how much I apreciate all she does. We are going through a bit of stress at the moment to do with my illness and I've been a bit snappy and rude. So I decided to make her a card using her favourite colours and animal, and got my brother to get me a box of Lindt Chocolates (her favourite) to go with it



The cute stamp was a mag freebie Coloured with Promarkers Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas Papers Brown Seam Binding and twine - Ribbon Girl Made With Love Charm - Hobbycraft WOC Flowers Woodware butterfly punch


The ribbon is a bit wonky lol but I work in a dark room with fuzzy vision so you must forgive me  :-P
I gave it to her earlier and she came in tearful and we both cried and I just about managed a small hug with her! :'-)
