Me to You Christmas Card

Hi everyone, well cant believe it is end of August already just wish the summer holidays were just starting again and not ending. I do prefer Marc and Chloe being at home but I just have to think how much more organised I am going to be as Chloe is in Reception next year and I will have the whole day to just me and Mitzi ( I hope I dont get hooked on daytime television). Known my look I just turn around and the day be gone before I know it.

Well the card is 6 by 6 scallopped edged. Backing papers are Kanban and fuzzy bears. Me to You topper is off cd rom. Then I have finished with gems and ribbon, flower - the snowflake I was given (only a 3 of these) I coloured in using pro-marker pink blossom.

Christmas Cards

Evening all. I have had a nice day over at my mam's with my sister she is teaching me how to do some basic bracelets and keyring charms. I will be showing some pictures on here shortly (going to take a while to collect eveything I need I think) and to be honest I want Chloe to learn how to make these more as I love card making too much.

Well the cards I have made are from Kanban packs I bought last Christmas from QVC when Dawn Bibby was there. The cards are all 6 by 6.

The first (above) I have made with my son Marc. He picked out the topper and the backing paper and together we came up with this card. Background card and topper are from Dawn Bibby designs (kanban) Kit. We then finished with ribbon, gems, Christmas Hat brad and of course some glitter.

The second (above) is just a simple card backing papers from stock and the finished with gems, ribbon and peel off border around the card.

I just like to say thanks for stopping by and hopefully I get some general cards made by the weekend.

Me to You Christmas disc - card

Evening all, got a lovely Me to You bear Christmas disc and after a couple of days figuring out what to do I managed to make the following cards - not sure how to print on the 6 by 6 card yet and getting the image the right way so at moment printing cutting and placing on card. I also not sure which card best to print on to get the best quality of the image (any tips welcome).

I created both designs with the programme, the first I have printed in pink I have only made these cards 2d and then finished with glitter, gems and ribbon. The second is green/blue again finished with glitter gems and ribbon.
