Christmas easel card

One of my mums clients mum (my mum is a carer) had been looking for a card for her daughter who suffers from MS and was telling my mum she couldn't find anything suitable anywhere, so of course my mum said "my Daughter can do you what you want". And this is the card:

I do hope she likes it! The lady wrote the verse herself which is very moving indeed.

The image is one that was sent to me by a friend before I started getting into Tilda, isn't it cute! It is coloured with ProMarkers. The textured card and papers are from DCWV, as is the message sticker. I have used a Martha Stewart punch around the page set, and the ribbon and flowers are from my stash. I wasn't sure about putting flowers on a Christmas card but I think it look ok. What do you think?

Dotties World Sunday challenge

The challenge over at Dotties World this week is set by Karen and here is what she says:

Conditional Christmas

This is the time we all make a start on our huge pile of Christmas cards - if it isn't then it should be as you surely don't want that last minute panic :-) To get you started we would like you to create a Christmas card, the condition here is that you must not use traditional Christmas colours, so I don't want to see any reds or greens, anything else is good to go. The only absolute must-have is of course one of the gorgeous Charmed downloads.

And here is my card:

The image is from the Charmed Christmas collection which is available at Charmed cards and crafts and is coloured with ProMarkers. I've used my bug and the swiss dots embossing folder. The large snowflake is from a pressie from last Christmas and the small ones are done using an X-Cut punch.

Dotties World Sunday challenge

The challenge over at Dotties World this week is set by Louise and here is what she says:

"Hello Folks, Louise here. As this challenge goes live I will actually be sunning myself in Turkey! So I think it would be a fitting plan to make a beach/vacation themed card - make it sunny please! Don't forget your Charmed download!"

I decided to make a little holiday memories book instead of a card. I made one like it at a craft club a while ago and thought they would make lovely little gifts so have made a few for people.

And here it is:
The image is from the Holly and Madison world tour Collection which is available at Charmed cards and crafts

I've coloured the image with Sakura pens for a change as I wanted it to have a glittery touch. The beach themed stamps are from a See D's set which I think is called "Lifes a beach"
The card and papers are from little stash :)

Isn't it a stunning photo!

Card for 2 challenges

"what's YOUR MUCHNESS? We want to know the HEART of your stamping style. Whether it's your favorite embellishment, "signature style", fave technique...we WANT TO SEE the MUCHNESS!"

I've used a digital stamp on the card which is one of my fave things to use as you can re-size them to suit the card you are making.

The second challenge is Dotties World this week it is set by Gunn and here is what she says:
"On this one I kind of want to challenge myself and you guys has to come along on this one. I am not that clever to use the colour green on my card, I mean as the main colour. So on this one I want you to have green as the main colour on your card. And the rest is up to you, but you have to use a Charmed download for this one, that is in fact the most important thing. I also would like you to include a metal charm."

Well green is my worst colour too, I hate it and hardly ever use it.
