Christmas Mice 1

Hi All

Not sure where these weeks disappear to are you? Sorry I've not posted for a while...even though I've not been very 'bloggy' I have been busy card making - some for the Joanna Sheen Design Team and plenty of others for Christmas cards and competition entries.

Speaking of competitions I was thrilled to find out that I'd come 3rd in both the Flower Soft and Joanna Sheen categories of the Cardmaker of the Year competition run by Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. How lucky am I! There were some fabulous entries and it really gets your creative juices flowing when you are challenged to make cards using specific products. I entered other categories too so over the next few days will upload my entries for you to see. Hope you enjoy them.

In the meanime, here are some of my Christmas cards - mousy themed, of course! I would like to enter this one in the Secret Crafter's Christmas themed challenge.

Best wishes Karen x

Tag It!

Its another dark and miserable day here in North Wales so sorry if this pic isn't that great - the light isn't good for a David Bailey session! I've made a tag using the Victoria embossing folder and then enjoyed getting messy with Distress inks and Cosmic Shimmer sprays. I tried to make it a little shabby and vintage looking - distressing my flower, adding Rock Candy Distress Stickles to my lace and frame and antique gold embossing powder which I sanded a little for another shabby look. The stamped frame is from the Chatsworth set by Papermania.
I hope to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge - which this week is with a 'Shabby' theme, Totally Papercrafts 'Tag It' challenge and a Spoonful of Sugar's 'Relish to Embellish' theme.
Have a great weekend!
Best wishes
