Christmas Treats

Good Afternoon everyone...

Firstly, I just want to say sorry to all my lovely blogging friends for not getting around all your lovely blogs as often as I would have liked this month.  For some reason October has been a bit 'full on' and I really feel I have neglected you all!

I am hoping to put that right in November - so please bear with me...xxx

Today's card is for the lovely Lili of the Valley Design Collective
I have used the beautiful stamp

I have coloured this poppet with Copics and made a very simple round card.

I have added some Stickles and sequins to create some Christmas sparkle.

...and here we are, Christmas Treats for those cute robins...

An Early Christmas Gift!...

Good evening friends, 
Happy Friday...

Today's card is the beautiful fairy

There is still a whole day and a bit left to visit Lili of the Valley and enjoy the fabulous offers on selected stamps, paper pads and art pads.

Plus there is a super fun challenge running on Lili of Valley's Facebook page
I have decided I am just a teensy bit in love with colouring on Kraft!  Somehow it makes Christmas cards in October totally bearable!

I have coloured this lovely Christmas fairy with Copics and opted for a sort of simple layout with polka dot frame.

I have used Lili of the Valley's wonderful Christmas sentiment set 
Grunge Christmas Postmarks and some die cut snowflakes.

There is some Wink of Stella on her wings and fur trim but unfortunately the camera has n't picked that up.

...and here we are, a beautiful fairy bringing a Christmas Gift early... (a bit like those wonderful folk at LOTV who currently have such fabulous offers for us all)!
