Well it's all over for another year, phew!! I hope you all had a wonderful time at Christmas, we had a very hectic 2 days but it was lovely to have all the family together and for Don to enjoy it this year, he has very little memory of last year as he was so poorly. We all tried to make this Christmas special for him and for us.
It was my very dear friend Ann's birthday on Christmas Day and this is the card I made for her, I hope she liked it! The cute Penny Black image has been coloured with Prismas, the background paper is My Mind's Eye and the sentiment printed on PC.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of the holiday week and best wishes for 2010!!

Whoopee, at long last all my christmas cards are finished and posted and these are the last two made. All my christmas stuff is packed away for another year and my craft room is looking nice and tidy (not for long! he he).
The Tilda image I coloured using Distress inks and the cute elf image was coloured with Prisma pencils.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2010.

Don't know about you but Christmas is not my favourite time of year but I do love making Christmas cards, however, I am all Christmassed out!! Can't wait to pack all my chrissy stuff away and get back to 'ordinary' cardmaking! Every year I vow to make a Chrissy card a week, then it won't creep up on me, but my craft room is awash with sparkly bits and pieces and shelves full of christmas stamps I need to move it all away to make room for all year round stuff!
Here are a couple of Tilda cards using I think is the Christmas Eve Tilda. I have coloured her with Distress inks, my latest 'must haves!' These 2 are my first attempt with the Distress inks, I don't think they look too bad (if you don't look too closely!). Practice makes perfect so they say and I am enjoying practising.
