1 Tilda Christmas image 2 cards

Hi all - gosh where has the time gone.  Been busy making my children' Christmas cards, just done a stamped image on cards that are 4 by 4 had over 60 to do but finally finished and now back to trying to find some more challenges.  

Just to get back into the swing of things I have made these 2 cards which I want to show you.  They are similiar but just a little different.  They are both 6 by 6 and I have used the same Tilda stamped image on them both, and they are both coloured in using pro-markers.  The backing papers are from stash.   One as you can see I have finished with flowers and the other I have finished with Poinessias.

Hi all havent found a challenge as yet but starting to get in a better routine.  I was asked to make a couple of birthday cards a while back and as I like to give my customers a choice I make a few cards per order.  They pick what they want and I then sell the rest on ebay.  I am trying not to get too carried away and make too many cards.

My card is 6 by 6, backing papers are from stash.  LOTV stamped image is coloured in using pro-makers and I finished with glitter on tiara, flowers, and gems.

Ice Skate Tilda - card

Hi all, hope you are all keeping well. I cannot believe how stupid I can sometimes be. I have been watching and buying a couple of Tilda stamps of ebay I have about 8 now but could have had aload more if I remembered about Sir Stampalot and I would have saved a bit money. After watching this stamp for absolutely ages and seeing it sell for stupid monies even starting price in some cases was £25.00 I have finally bought the same from Sir Stampalot for a lot lot less. Well needless to say I be buying all my Tilda stamps of this site from now on. Guess so of us learn the hard way but never late than ever haha. This is the card I have made size is 6 by 6 backing papers from stash (blue with glitter is from Forever Friends baby collection).

New Year - New beginnings

Hi what a fantastic Christmas I had hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too. Happy New Year to you all.

I am currently having some technical problems with my blog on my laptop (using my son's at the moment) so hopefully I can get these issues resloved and then be up and running in the next couple of weeks.

I have now got everything at a balance I think so I giving myself a little challenge starting from Monday. Using this blog and my facebook page I am going to do a card a day challenge. That way I am not either making too many or not enough.

Therefore hopefully on Tuesday you will see my first card of the year. Big hugs a goodluck to you all for 2012.
