I so can't believe I've made a 'Spring Card' - well it was the first day of Spring, here in the UK yesterday, although I'm not sure most of the UK would think it was a joke, as some of them are experiencing really bad snow, we had one bad day on Tuesday, but today is now not looking too good either.

The image is : Penny Black - 'Welcome Bunnies / 284H / 1995'
Papers are : My Minds Eye - 'Blink Of An Eye'
Shape: Go Kreate - 'Frilly #10'
Flowers : Penny Black Die - 'Layered Flowers'

Sweaty Betty, ooops Chicks and Holiday Hugs


I am such a 'Muppet' i had made 2 cards for this month's Maureen's Rudolph Days Challenge , which runs until the 30th and yet I still forgot to post them, ooops, (I do have a good excuse though, will tell you in the new year, as i don't want to tempt fate !!), I would just like to thanks my fellow teamie Jenny, who has been paired with on alternate months and the lovely Maureen for having me along this year and it's given me a chance to get ahead too - well without further a do, here they are :

The first is an image I coloured, when i did a colouring course with the very talented Faye, but at the time i didn't colour in the headbands or weights, as i knew exactly which papers I wanted to put with it :

Image : Stamping Bella - 'Sweaty Chicks', although i like to call them 'Sweaty Betty's' after the designer leisure company, as i met a lady walking her dog, round the corner from me, whose daughter designs for them !!

Papers : DCWV - 'Rose Tinted Christmas Multi Stack

Sentiment : Penny Black - 'Festive Snippets'

Ribbon and Gems from my stash.

The second one is using an image I have always loved (it's the original wooden stamp too) and it also made me use a different combination of reds that i would normally use !

Image : Penny Black - 'Holiday Hugs / 942F / 1996'

Papers : Prima - 'North Country Collection'

Sentiment : not sure 

Right bye for now, as i'm off to sort out son, in the meantime have a good Christmas and New Year and see you all in 2018, Luv Sam x
