Anyway we have a new challenge over at Crafts & Me today but first we want to thankyou all for your monochromatic cards.....wow were they stunning picking a top 3 is not gonna be easy.....
This week our lovely Tracy has chosen the theme, a nice easy one & with whats around the corner this will come in handy.......
With Valentine just around the corner this should be very easy lol......or you could even go as I've done & actually make something ready for whats around another corner.....well its actually more like a train ride away but how quick these weeks are flying by it will soon be around the corner......lol.
I brought some new stamps off Teresa a few weeks ago & this one I have wanted forever so I just HAD to ink her up.........
See you could make crimbo cards as well as valentine or any lovey dovey cards.....I said that I would make 1 maybe 2 crimbo cards a month until August time to get ready for crimbo....last year was my 1st crimbo making cards & OMG it was manic half got lost in post cus of late posting & a lot were VERY late. So this year I'm sending them out in the 1st week of December to make sure everyone gets 1 in time lol. So far on my plan I've made......none.....until now yayyyyy my 1st crimbo card of 2011...dum dum dum!!
Anyway this little beauty is 'Wintergreen Wishes' by Hannah Lynn which of course you can only get from Crafts & Me. She has been stamped with Memento on this card & coloured with Copics & Promarkers.
The fur around her hat & clothes I covered with 'Ice' stickles & the snow on the trees & around her I used my snow-marker which I've had for a few months but forgot about it. The white dots I used my white gel pen.
The flower & bead in the middle I made myself & then distressed it with walnut ink & spritzed it with
The paper is from 'Bearly Mine' which I distressed with my skissors & then heat embossed the edges with hologram super sparkle embossing powder.
The scalloped card & the red rose on the bow are from Crafty Emma's who has had new stamp & other bits & bobs in.....you should have a peekskie I cant wait for my new stamps arrive.......I'm sure Emma does things on purpose to make us girlies keep spending our money lol. The ribbon is of course seam binding which was cream but I dyed it red with my cosmic shimmer.....I could of entered my hands into this challenge cus they are as red as this card.........yes I forgot to put gloves on....well it is 'Thicky-Vicky' lol.
