Christmas is Coming

Where oh where has October gone................
I just cannot believe it is November, I have so much work left to do for this year!
But at least this challenge has made me get a Christmas card finished, I seriously think I'm going to have to do the unthinkable...Buy some cards....No, did I think that or say it out loud.
If you haven't already guessed the theme for November Facebook challenge is "Christmas is Coming" I have used Monster Dino that I coloured with copics the papers I've had for years and are from Dovecraft the sentiment is an old one from All dressed up stamps, there's a bit of white glitter and glossy accents.

Jenson's 3rd Birthday

Hiya, it was my Grandson's 3rd Birthday this week, so I made him this card, it's using a whimsy digital stamps called Leon this is just perfect for Jenson as he is turning into a right petrol head just like his father. We had his party today so it was great getting all the family together.
I coloured it with copics and used salty ocean distress ink for the sky.

Robo Christmas

Hi there, I have finally managed another Christmas card, CAS that seems to be my style for this Christmas ha ha, I've used a very old digi from Tiddly Inks called Roboto
who said a Robot was just for Birthdays, I thought if I coloured him in Christmas colours he would make a perfect boys card. The Son embellishment is a chipboard one that I coloured and then used glossy accents on it.

Kitsune Sprite and Hepaticia Sprite

Wow,what wonderful new releases we have from Mitzi at aurora wings this month, three of them, and if you would like to see what all the other DT have made please pop across to the Aurora wings showcase blog for loads of inspiration.
There is also a money off coupon with the codes attached.
I'm afraid I didn't get round to colouring Indian Corn Sprite
Here is  Kitsune Sprite, Mitzi has informed me that  "kitsune" is fox in Japanese. People in the west (mostly the anime and Japanese culture fans) tend to use kitsune for the multi-tailed fox spirit of the Japanese folklore (not everything is cuddly or cute, as 'spirit' can be more of a demon than a friendly ghost).
So you live and learn.

I have coloured with copics, used Basic Grey pyrus paper and the sentiment was a freebie.

New Home

Hi there, well it's a very wet Sunday afternoon here, so I'm upstairs playing in my craft room. 
When I was a young girl (many many years ago now) when it was raining so hard that the raindrops were bouncing in the puddles, my Mum always announced "It's colouring book weather, get your pens out" so I need no excuse to do the same today.
This is a card I made for a friends daughter, Helen and her partner Justin have just moved into their new home together. I have had this stamp for years it's called Crowns and Castles 4 from paperartsy I believe it's been discontinued now as I couldn't find it on their website.
I coloured it with copics and used salty ocean distress ink on the sky

Autumn

Hi there, well I don't know about where you live, but Autumn has certainly arrived here on the East Coast, the ADU facebook challenge  this month is all about 
"Autumn or Halloween"
So you have a choice, we don't really celebrate Halloween so I opted for the Autumn theme.
I used one of the three-little-autumn-girls and also the Autumn-papers-1 collection, I coloured her with copics and added a few dots in the corner that I got from Anna at The craft box uk the sentiment as a freebie from a magazine. I doodled round the edge of the image with a fine liner.

Angel of Remembrance

Hi there, Mitzi is spoiling us with two Angels of Remembrance 1 & 2 they are both amazing.
Angel of Remembrance 1 I decided to colour in shades of lilac, just because it's one of my favorite colours, I used copics, Anna Marie Blissful Green papers, some SnipArt and gems on the border and Petal pink liquid pearls.

Angel of Remembrance 2 I went for Summer colours, as just this week I've noticed the leaves changing colour and there is a lot of leaf litter on the ground, I don't think I'm quite ready for Autumn yet. The papers are again from Anna Marie Designs, I must say this is one of my most used paper books I got it in green and beige, love them both, you can't see much of it but there is a strip of lace across the bottom, flowers an gems from my stash.

Seb’s first Birthday

Hello, and welcome to my new followers, I'm always excited to see that number going up.
This card is a super special one, it was my youngest grandchild's first birthday last week. Baby Sebastian, Seb for short, was one and he is growing into an amazing little boy. That's four fantastic Grandchildren I have, I feel so blessed, I was often told there is no love like a Nannar's and it's so true, once you hold them in your arms, that's it everything evolves around making sure they are happy, and how many Nannar cuddles you can get in before they run off.
This card is using an All dressed up stamp called Jungle friends that I coloured with copics, papers are DCWV and Bazzil Basics, there is a touch of Glossy Accents on the coconuts.

Zodiac Sprites

What a bumper blog post I have for you today!!!
Mitzi from Aurora Wings ha designed the first four of the Zodiac signs, how amazing is that ?
I decided to make them up into a set, using the same colours and papers on each, they are all coloured with copics, the backing paper is from The Works and is called Magic Moments, it's a 12 by 12 pad and was only £3 for 24 double sided paper (although it's as thick as card) and I have used it on loads of projects, I really must pop back and see if they have any more. Go Kreate was the alphabet dies I chose as they were the perfect size.To see all the links and other DT work pop across to the Aurora Wings Showcase.blog
