Anything Goes

A quick card for My Time to Craft Challenge this week which is "Anything Goes". Papers and topper were free from a magazine I added some Stickles Crystal glitter to the topper and some adhesive stones for the champagne bubbles. The flower is a silver Prima flower with a cream rose in the centre from which I have hung three tiny silver bells, three tiny buttons, a swirl cut from glitter paper and a Happy New Year peel off to finish.

The Last Christmas Card

I have been snowed in all day at home, the roads out of our village are covered in snow, hopefully it will have cleared a bit by tomorrow as I still have some food shopping to do before Christmas.
At least it means that I have managed to finish my last Christmas card which is for my husband. The stamp is a Sugar Nellie, coloured with Copics, papers are free from a magazine, with a border of bright blue glitter paper punched with Martha Stewart Stars border punch. I added a snowflake charm and computer generated greeting. I am going to enter this for the challenge at Simon Says which is "Merry Christmas".
I would just like to wish everyone who visits my blog a very Happy Christmas and a great New Year.

Z-Folds : My Time to Craft

Stamp is Snowflake Daisy from Squiggle Stamps coloured with Copics and Crystal Stickles. The borders across the top of each section are white crystal glitter paper punched with Martha Stewart Lattice Arch edge punch. Finished with a white flower covered with crystal glitter, a tree charm and computer generated sentiment.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

I coloured with Copics, the papers are Basic Grey and from my stash, the title is computer generated and I added a couple of adhesive stone stars and really kept it quite simple.
