LOTV Christmas cards

Evening bloggers,

I'm back with my second post for today and this time it's to share a couple of LOTV Christmas cards I've made using the Art Pad toppers, these are so handy for this time of year 

I used various papers for these cards from LOTV and DCWV
Ribbons from my stash
LOTV Circle sentiment stamp and relatives tag stamps
Peel off letters and bunting die from my stash
Finished with a touch of stickles (winter, love all the cosy nights and making Christmas cards)

Enjoy the rest of your evening peeps
Hugs Kelly 

Me to you,...

Good morning all..

Feeling a little down this week.. My boys go back to school tomorrow. :-(
Usually after the six weeks hols I am ready to get back to routine but this year I think they have flown by and me and the boys have had a great time together.. Going to miss them so much tomorrow :-(

On a more positive note lol
I won top three again over at The Cutie Pie challenge

Now for today's card share I have a couple of 'Me to You' cards I made...
I enjoy colouring these cute tatty teddies with my pencils. 

I used fab papers from LOTv up up and Away pad 
Sentiment from my stash 


I used the same papers for this card but added some organza ribnon, pearls, corner die cut and a sentiment tag stamped from the 'me to you' stamp set.. Finished with a few touches of liquid pearls 


That's all from me today.. Off to get the boys hair cut later and to see my grandad.
Have a good day

Evening bloggers... 

Sorry I've been missing for a day or two..
The days just fly by and I keep forgetting or getting distracted from doing my posts lol..
Think I will schedule a few lol...

I have admired lots of gorgeous creations using this fab wedding stamp from inkylicious for quite a while and FINALLY purchasesd it a couple of weeks ago.. 

Here are the first two cards I've made using it

I really enjoyed making this card.. I kept away from the designer papers this time and used glittered card and embossed some white card stock.. Added black lace, white organza, layered some flowers and finished with  pearls from my stash


For this one I used some Papermania goodies - papers, doily, pin wheel and lace
Finished with liquid pearls and ribbon.
Really pleased with these colours and the finish of this card


Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comments you leave..

Hugs Kelly xx

A little sunshine

Evening bloggers, hope you are all well..

I've just seen that I've been chosen as one of the top 3 over at deep ocean :-)
So pleased...

Well it's Getting a bit chilly here now, think we have seen the last of summer here now :-(

Anyway Here is a quick card I put together the other day for a bit of brightness

I used an old Boofle decoupage/topper kit...
I embossed the white background and layered onto orange and yellow cardstock..
The sun and Boofle character was in a set together.
I added a little strip of yellow ribbon  to the bottom too.
