Bah humbug!

This poor dog with his Christmas hat seems to me to be thinking 'Bah Humbug' and wishing it was all over.  

It's a lovely image from the Furry Friends cd by Joanna Sheen with artwork by Rachel Hale.
I've used a complimentary paw print backer from the same cd. The main image has been set at an angle with an added holographic snowflake in the top corner.

Cheating already

I've not done any cardmaking today so i've bent the rules of Kathy's challenge a little and am showing not a card but something made from card.
I needed something on which to display any necklaces that I make so searched and came up with this little stand. The necklace on it is not one of my creations I hasten to add.
The template came from boo-jewellery and is very easy to download and make.
I've used quite thick card and brads in the folded areas at the bottom to make it sturdier. It's all explained on the website, there's even a smaller one for earrings although it does say on this that holes can be punched to display earrings as well. I've just got to round off the edges a bit to take the sharpness away on the 'shoulders'. 2 of these can be made from 1 A4 sheet of card.

Finished a couple

Day 2 of the Card a Day blogging and i've got 2 finished Christmas cards to show.
My daughter went to the craft show at Donnington in the summer and received a goodie bag for her troubles. Her partner went also so I had his bag. In it were several sheets of Christmas decoupage from Hunkydory (I think), not my usual style of choice but they make up quite well.

I added a couple of flower heads to each and layered them up with a bit of foliage onto A5 cards. Quick and easy but isn't that what we all need to do at this time of year.

Kathy's facebook Challenge

Kathy has set up a group on fb to get us to make and blog a card a day, since my blog has been neglected for well over a month I decided to join in with her.
I've assembled quite a few cards today but left it too late to photograph them before the light went.
So here are the two I made for my Grandaughters' birthdays last month. One 8 years old and the other 11 years old.

This is an image a friend stamped and sent to me ages ago, i've used Promarkers to colour it and added die cuts and a doily as well as a few well stuck down seed beads.

This is a Kanban stamp which i've used again today. I used the same die cut and a circular greetings stamp, again coloured using Promarkers with addition of a bit of glitter glue.
Looking at it now i'm not sure about the flowers added onto the washi tape but it must have seemed ok at the time.

Tomorrow I will make an effort to take some pics while the light is good so I can show more recent cards.
