Bah Humbug Challenge 46 Feeling the Blues

Feeling blue with cold here, although Snowdonia is beautiful when it's covered in the white stuff, shame about my front path!!
The background papers I've used are all from Hot Off The Press, and have been lurching for a few years now. The main stamped image is a stamp from Imagination Crafts. I stamped this out using Hydrangea Blue Stazon ,then shaded around the edge with a mixture of Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Inks. The flowers are cut using a Crealies die from Graphicus, the swirl was cut out from a Cricut cartridge and the border punch is Martha Stewart. Can't believe it's the last challenge already, well done Girl's. Merry Christmas Love Elizabeth xx

TIO 59 Colours for Christmas

Very cold here today the Irish sea is full of white horses! Should really be finishing off stuff for the Christmas Fair on Saturday, but have been distracted by challenges!!!
I chose the cool icy shade of tumbled glass for this project, along with faded jeans and a touch of black soot.
All of the stamps are from a theme plate called "Joy" by Curious by Design and stamped out using black soot. I added a touch of colour with promarkers.

Country Market Stash!

Well here are a few of the card's I have ready for the Country Market down at Rhos on Sea, Friday morning. It's quite a long time since I've done a market and am quite looking forward to it, well except for the early start and probably scraping ice off the windscreen! Am getting some general cards ready at the moment, so I will share them later. Thanks for looking Elizabeth x

Rainbow Ladies Challenge 126

Scrapbook page for a change.
The paper is from HOTP it reminded me of the checked shirt's my Grandpa used to wear for work. The photo has been printed out on to text and graphic paper as I wanted to keep the image as matt as possible, then mounted on to black mirri board.
The Kanban poppies have been stamped out using memento tuxedo black ink and coloured in with promarkers, then a touch of black glitter added in the centre of each one. They were cut out and added around the photo. The font is cut out from the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge, I decided not to use the top layer as it was too fussy. The handsome tanned chap in the foreground was my Grandpa, a Royal Engineer that made it home, a fantastic pianist, bookworm and my playmate whilst growing up. My Hero.

The very (ups) large stag is one of the new stamps from Lavinia. The tree's in the foreground are from Clarity and the background tree's and house are Hobby Art stamps all stamped in black soot.
Finished off with Art Institute glitter in crystal for the snow.
