Cutie Patootie

Well this is number 4 of my holiday cards - should have made it yesterday but things got away from me so here it is now. Don't think I'm gonna manage to make any more now but I'm pleased with the ones I've done.

The image I believe is Whipper Snapper and if I remember rightly I have Linda to thank for it. Gorgeous little thing int she? Coloured with Promarkers and matted onto pink textured card then a creamy pearlescent card as is the patterned paper which is Kay Miller's 'Mixed Veggies'.
Background card is just a solid colour block - Kay Miller again but printed onto textured card which I found laying about. Sentiment is just an odd one I found. Little flowers punched out of the patterned paper and that's the lot.

I eventually got my freezer done but gosh it took some time. It might have helped if I'd turned off the freezer and not the microwave instead!!! Duh. Didn't click until I saw the light on in the fridge but most of the food seemed to be as cold outside in the snow as it had been in the freezer so nothing got chucked. So Donna and Sue if you still want someone to defrost your freezers I can think of no one worse than

Thanks for looking.

3rd and last Newton for now

Right this was yesterdays effort - different Newton image and didn't use the glittered frame for this one. Paper is called Sugar & Spice by Zoe Pearn from Sweet Shoppe Designs and the ricrack (s) was added digitally - saves all the faffing about trying to get it straight. The background paper I can't remember where it's from. This one is even more crooked than the last - must get my eyes straightened!

There is another card on the go for today but I'm trying to defrost my freezer and it's taking forever. All the food is outside in the snow (wrapped up of course) so it's a race to see if I can get it back in before it all goes smushy. Wish me luck.
Thanks for looking.

More of the same

This is yesterdays card but the light was rubbish last night so I took the photo today. Same decoupaged image of Newton again but with a different colour combo of papers. The main background is called Cottage Garden by Zoe Pearn - bought it from who sell a huge range of fantastic digital layouts for scrappers and card makers alike.

I have one more Newton card on the go and then I must change tack and do something different.

Well it's yet another snowy day here in Herts - stops and starts - just sooooo glad I'm not at work.
Thanks for looking.

First holiday card - Newton

Trying to be good as I have a few days off and so I'm attempting to make a card a day - we'll see how that goes!! I've had this Newton Bear decoupage for yonks but I do like it a lot so thought I'd get cutting and this is the result. Papers are Kay Miller of course, border cut with a Fiskers punch which keeps blocking up and a couple of flowers and brad from my hoard. One day I will take a photo that sits straight but until then this is what I end up with.

Off for my tea now and who knows what I might achieve tonight! Not a lot I'm thinking. Thanks for visiting.

Snowy Day

Hi all - well should have been at work today but no buses are running so I'm here at home. Such a lot of snow and it's still coming down. I did wonder that if I managed to get to work how would I get home if it snowed again and it has so I'm glad in a way.

Back garden piccie which I blew up to show the little robin sitting on the plant holder and the second one is the way out of our Close which then goes onto a steepish slope so very difficult to get out of.

Hope you're all keeping warm and snuggly and if you have to venture out please take great care.
