A few more Christmas cards

******WARNING THIS IS A LONG POST*********


Did anyone else see frozen planet the other day? I do LOVE penguins and the filming as always with the BBC nature programs is just incredible! Well if you saw it and saw the emperor penguin bit you will know just where my inspiration for this card came from :D
The gorgeous main image is of course from the House mouse range and this one is a decoupage sheet from the lovely Joanna Sheen. I have added stickles to the snow so it really sparkles (not that this pic shows it very well). The sentiment is one I got a couple of years ago I got a whole load of them when they were on sale and they are from DCWV if I remember rightly. The paper is an old one as well from a couple of years ago from Dovecraft. The ribbon is from Fantastic ribbon while the border punch is Martha Stewart's doily lace edge punch from Crafts and me.


I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Scrapology - Feature a house mouse (that is not hard for me :D )
House mouse challenge - Warm and fuzzy
Shopping our stash - Winter or Christmas related
Ladybug crafts - Blue Christmas


My next card is using one of the brilliant digi's I won from Bronte and Bella's challenge a few weeks ago. Isn't she just sooo sweet! She is called Ragged Angel and you can pick her up HERE from Mo's Digital Pencil. I have coloured her with promarkers and added some stickles for a touch of sparkle. I have stamped some snowflakes around the edges of the image and torn all the edges before inking them for a more distressed feel. The paper is an old one again (yep I am trying to use up that old stash) again from Dove craft I think. The sentiment is from craft work cards. The peel offs gems and ribbon are from my stash.


I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Paper crafting journey - Anything goes
Daisy doodles creative challenge - Christmas creation
Digital Tuesday - Sparkle and shine

My last card is just a quick one using one of the Mo's Digital Pencil topper sheets I picked up at Ally Pally. These are such good fun to use as they are pre coloured and die cut so very quick. I have added some glaze and touches of sparkle with sakura stardust pens :D then I inked all the edges with gold brilliance ink. The sentiment also comes on the sheet. The gems are from my stash and the gorgeous paper is from Marianne D's winter world pack available HERE.


I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Bronte and Bella's challenge - Fairies,elves, santa or snowmen
Scrapbook sisterz - Christmas time
