I started the year making 1 christmas card a week for a challenge on docrafts, but have got way behind, so when I saw the challenge on pink gem, I thought great i'll get started again, lets hope I can keep it up.

I have used a pink gem digi stamp and  used stickles 'frosted lace' for the rain and puddle, the large snowflakes are a provo craft die and the smaller ones are punched.

Hi all 2 cards in 2 days things are looking up, this card is for the friendship swap on Docrafts. I bought the Marianne die at Summer Crafting in Doncaster, and this is the first time I have used it, it goes really well with the flowers, def a good buy.I have coloured the image with promarkers, instead of my usual copics, I only have 12 which I won as blog candy, so don't have many colours, but just the right colours for this image.

I am entering the following challenges

We went away camping the week before last, first time for 5 years, and really enjoyed it. Our daughter Tracy and family came with us, we were near Matlock in Derbyshire, and our other daughter and grandson came to visit for a day, they live in Birmingham, so not too far to travel. The only downside was I got some terrible bites on my legs,  which were quite painful, why is it always me that gets bitten?I must be tasty. Anyway I have finally made a card, always takes me a while to find my mojo when i've been away, and here it is                                                             
It's a LOTV image, coloured with copics
Flowers from  Wild Orchid crafts
Sentiment  MCS CD
and I think the backing paper was a freebie with a mag.
I am entering it in the following challenges
