I'm getting blue this Christmas...

..with the colours on these cards! Ha Ha.

My good friend Jackie came over yesterday for a crafting sesh.
We took in a trip to my local(ish) craft shop in Poynton and bought an item or two, as you do.
One of the items I got was a pair of snowflakes clear stamps by Papermania.
(You can see one of them on the first card).
I used SU Bashful Blue CS and embossed white card with the Cuttlebug Fleur-de-Lis embossing folder, mounting it onto silver mirri card.  I stamped the 'snowflake/bauble with SU Bashful Blue.
It's mounted on the inverted scallop Nestie Jackie bought at Poynton and I nabbed to make this card. I wasn't sure about this style of Nestie until I tried it out, now I want it! Doh!
The greeting is framed with one of my Nestie label thingies. Can't remember the name of it for the minute..



This gorgeous little girl belongs to my best mate Pam. She did tell me what the stamp was, but as usual, my brain cell has hibernated and I've forgotten.
(I stamped her while were all on holiday in Burnham).
I framed her with a Nestie labels 4. SEE! I CAN remember SOME things! Ha Ha
She's coloured with Promarkers. Well only one Promarker actually. I glittered up the snowflakes in the image with silver Glamour Dust. As with the first card, I've mounted her on a piece of white card, embossed with a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder, (Nabbed off Jackie) and dabbed with SU Bashful Blue ink to make the snowflakes pop, then mounted onto silver mirri card.


Going to do more blue card, 'coz the colours are so wintry and cool.
Hope you like them as much as I do. Please let me know. I love your comments.

Thanks for your visit today.

I think Both of your cards are SO beautiful!!! I'm on a Blue kick as well. I still have a few thanksgiving cards to make but stuck on my Blues! Your so lucky to have such great friends to scrap trade with. I need to find me one as living in rural Wyoming there is not too much for craft stores. LOTS of Online shopping or Improvising.

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog :D I can see why Mercy selected you as a guest designer. Your cards are wonderful. Just love how you used the Fleur Des Lis EF on this card and that shape of nestie is will used to frame the ornament. Great card. The second image is adroable!! Love how you sponged around it and also love how you dabbed the snowflake EF with the blue. Great cards :D
