Gnome mistake

Hi there, I finally got to have a little play with my new stamps from Creative Expressions called "Make Gnome Mistake"
I used a die and cut some hill shapes that I edged with a bit of distress ink, the sky is Raindrops embossing Texture plate from Crafter;s, I stamped my Gnome , masked him off then stamped mt toadstool on top of him, to give the appearance of him sitting on top. 

He was coloured with copics, and a bit of glitter,
Quite a plain card for me, but I've been trying new styles out since leaving Crafter's,
had more me time to play.

Cute Christmas

Hello there,
Isn't this a gorgeous image? Trouble is I forgot to rename it when I saved it on my hard drive and now I have no idea where I bought it, so if you know please leave me a comment so I can credit the company, I so hate it when I can't pass on the artists company.

I'm using a traditional colour scheme here, using my trusty copics to colour with, the edges I've distressed, Dovecraft vintage basic papers, Marianne square doily that I cut in half, pearls , bell and ribbon with a touch of glitter on his hat. 

I'm going to enter this into the following;

Christmas Deer

Hiya, I thought I would make a start on my Christmas cards, I found this image Christmas Deer from All dressed up in my Digi box printed off from last year that didn't get used, she looked so forlorn I had to bring her to life.

I coloured her with copics, used Joy Winter Wonderland papers and snowflake dies, paper flowers and tulle out my bit box, pumice stone and broken China distress inks, and a bit of frantage embossing on the tree and image. 
If you pop over to the ADU blog there is a competition going on where you can win 3 digis and also a DT call ending 15th Sept.

Hi there, here is a card I made a few weeks ago.
I treated myself to some Brusho's, and I must say I love them.
They are so bright and vibrant.
And i must say a little bit scary, as they are very random and i love regimented, I think it did me good to cut back and kick my heels up
