Bizzy Becs Design Team Card - Saturated Canary Wendy

Hello there! It's been a while since I last popped in, but it's been a crazy few weeks here with the lead up to Christmas, hubby's return home and my mother in law's arrival.  And I don't know where this year has gone but it has certainly whizzed right by me that's for sure!

So here is what will most likely be one of my last cards of the year. This is for Bizzy Bec's Design Team and I have chosen the gorgeous Saturated Canary - Wendy image from Bizzy Becs Online Store. And you can currently get her for 20% off!!  And as an added bonus, the gorgeous Carta Bella papers I used called Paris Girl are also on sale ... for a whopping 33% off! I just love these papers, the colours are so soft and I just adore anything to do with Paris.

The embellishment on the ribbon came from one of Bizzy Bec's gorgeous card kits,and there are now a whole bunch of new ones that were added this month! Be sure to check them out, they are gorgeous and make it so easy to put your cards together because everything matches perfectly.

I chose to leave a sentiment off this card for now, because I don't know what I will use it for but I figured I could easily add one when I need to.

Image: Saturated Canary
Cardstock: All papers from Carta Bella's Paris Girl 6x6 pad
Other: Embellishment from Bizzy Becs card kit, stitching, ribbon, copic markers

I hope that you had a fantastic Christmas with your loved ones, and I wish all of my blog readers a very Happy New Year. May 2013 bring you only wonderful things.

Just Add Ink Challenge #147 - Just Add Balloons

Well just for a change from all of those ornament pictures, I thought I would share my card for this week's challenge over at Just Add Ink. This week the challenge is to add balloons. And if you're looking for some inspiration be sure to check out the JAI blog, because the girls have some great projects up this week.

For my card I pulled out a really old stamp (well over 10 years old!) from my stash. I used a combination of copics and paper piecing on the image.

A couple more ornaments

I have been having so much fun making these ornaments that I have created a couple more.  I think the Bermuda Bay coloured one is my new fave :)

Bizzy Becs December Challenge - Christmas

Wow, can you believe it's December already? So what better time to get into some Christmas challenges, and that's exactly what we have for you over at Bizzy Becs this week.

The months prize for Decembers Challenge will be a ....
 kindly sponsored by..Artii Craftii Creations .
They have a huge section of charms, casts, washi tapes and
 lots of arty whimsical style embellishments,  Ok...lots of fabulous goodies for your creations.

I made my card using this adorable Little Santa digital image from Bec's online store.
You can find him HERE. 
I have coloured him using my copic markers, and left the rest of the card pretty simple. I have used some various Kaiser patterned papers and some green ribbon. And although it's hard to see, I have added some texture and glitter to the furry parts of his Santa outfit.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Christmas Ornaments

I have had fun making some Christmas ornaments this weekend. Some simple ones using rosettes and a couple of the fancier ones that were featured on the Stampin' Up! Christmas Catalogue. I did one in the traditional colours at a workshop and then came home and made one in pink/purple for the little girls who live next door as that is their favourite colours.  Here are a few photos.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
