I wish it could be Christmas every day...

These latest stamps from Magnolia are soooo sweet and great fun to play with! My latest kit arrived last week and here's what I made

The DT also received a plain white box to decorate this time, and here's what I came up with:

And using one of my favourite stamps from last year's Winter collection, I made this tag card

All stamps, papers and embellishments are available now from Magnolia's Webshop.

Green Christmas

Here's a card I just made for Friday Sketchers - I love these sketches but I keep forgetting to check in for the latest challenge so I think it's time I put a link on my sidebar for them! Here is Bea's fab sketch

and here's my take on it - still practising with distress inks - I've not quite got it yet but oh it's great fun trying! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by!

Santa Claus is coming to town

You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry, better not pout I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town......

and I can't wait!!! Keep your eyes peeled on the Magnolia blog for more information about the release of the Santa 2008 collection. Hopefully he'll be dropping through my door any day now too so I can't wait to get some samples up here!!

An Experimental Christmas Card

OK, bear with me - this was a bit of an experiment that didn't quite work out how I hoped it might. I have been so entranced with Aija's unbelievably stunning artwork that I had to try out her colouring technique for myself - it didn't work! LOL!! Never mind, I had great fun trying and now I've got the bit between my teeth, I can't give up till I've improved substantially!! What I do like is the depth of colour you get with distress inks though I find them less easy to control than ordinary watercolours. Thanks for popping by!
