I first saw Thomas Kinkade pictures on a trip to Florida back in 2004 and every time we go back, I have to go and look at the wonderful pictures that are in his shop. Now anytime I want to look at them all I have to do is get Joanna Sheen's CDs out and pop them into the PC. Thank you Joanna for this wonderful library of pictures. For this card I used the decoupage section and an 8 x 8 card base, gold mirri board, a backing sheet from the CD and a bit of gold ribbon. The sentiment was made using my foiler. I added lots of glitter to the snow in the picture which does not show in the photo.
Thank you for looking, I hope to be back with more Christmas cards in the next couple of days.

It's been really miserable here today, but hubby and I went out to lunch with friends that we have not seen for a while, so it turned out really nice.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.

I used some gold pearly card for the box and popped a couple of peel offs on to it.
My Niece loved it I'm glad to say.
Thank you for looking.

Thank you for looking, I'm off to have a rummage in the cupboards to see what else I have that can be used.

This first one I made as a gift for a baby using the images from Monday's Child, cutting them with a spellbinders die and mounting onto a large shape the same. Then using ribbon joined them altogether so they could be hung on a wall in a Nursery. Below are 2 of the images. On the reverse of each picture is the right line of the verse.
Now that my Holidays are over and my sample making is done, I am hoping to have some more time to do so crafting (and blogging) for me. I need to start making Christmas Cards, Someone said today that there are 90 days left to Christmas, and I'm sure they will fly by.

I printed onto a semi gloss photo card and matt and layered it onto some silver mirri board and black card stock. I embellished it with a punched heart using a Martha Stewart punch and some flowers from my stash. The centres of the flowers were done using a flattened end cap which I bought from a bead shop, and then topped with flat back pearls. Sue

I thought that I would share this card that I have made for my Mother-in-law to give to my sister-in-law and her husband who are about to celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary. I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to do, so I made it double sided in the end. I used the Glitter Girls open hearts board. After cutting it out I then edged the card with glitter. This side I made with flowers that were bought from Wild Orchid Crafts.
This side I used the Glitter Girls new Cd All that Jazz. Finally I made a box using the Cameo Card Craft template which has a heart shaped window in it. I am really pleased with the end results, hopefully they will like it as well.

These cards are decoupaged, then mat and layered onto a plain white card. The sentiments (also on the CD) were then cut out and mounted onto silver mirri card cut with a Spellbinders nestie. I'm sure I will be making many more of these.

Here is one of the cards that I did manage to make last week. This was for my daughter's partner's sister. I made it using the multi-bagz board from the Glitter Girls. I used card from Crafters Companion and some flowers that I have in my stash.

I have used My Craft Studio again, and the Pretty In Porcelain disc. Although this disc was all about plates it also had some really beautiful backing papers and toppers on. The larger topper has been decoupaged and I used the Cricut Storybook cartridge for the letters. This week has been very hectic for me, as my Sister, who has a serious eating disorder is in Hospital being tube feed. After a week in there she has put on 6lbs and is now going to a specialist unit for eating disorders. The good thing is that she has admitted that she does have a problem and wants to get over it. I will be sending her positive vibes from France, and hope that she has put on some more weight when I get home.

I had a phone call this morning asking if I could make a Ruby Wedding Card. The problem was they wanted it by the end of today. So I then had to find an image that I could use, I liked this one. I hope that they do too.
I used Cupcake Crafting's Potpourri, this picture was called Rose Bowl. I printed 2 of the backing sheets, and also used some red mirri card to matt and layer. The image has been decoupaged and I finished it with an insert and some peeloff corners.

Today I thought that I would show you a card that I made using the New Cute Companions stamps by Jayne Nestorenko. I have used Helene for this, but I cut away her wings and the seat that she was sat on. She is coloured using pro markers, and the background of the circle is coloured using distress inks. For the backing paper I made a plain sheet in My Craft Studio. So far I have not added a sentiment, this I can do later when I know who I am going to sent it to.

Today I would like to show you the Arty Farty, Colin Car that I made as a gift to my daughters best friend Sophie and her very new husband Domonic who tied the knot yesterday. What wonderful weather they had. For the car I used Snow white centura pearl card stock from Crafters Companion, and black card stock. I then used the dashboard, front grill and white wheels that are in the add on pack, that goes with the Colin Car template. Then I used mulberry roses for the seat and a horseshoe on the front with hearts on the back, these were cake decorations. I was pleased with the end result and the bride and groom loved it. This is a photo of the Bride and Groom cutting the cake As well as the pictured cake, which is in the shape of a heart, there were cupcakes as well.

The size of the card is A4, the mice are from the Summer Stories and the Original stamp sets. I coloured these with water colour pencils. The Church is from Winter Tales CD, and the backing paper from the original CD. I disguised the holly that decorates the outside of the church with ribbon and flowers. The flowers down the sides were made with some punches that I brought a long time ago from Create and Craft. Then I used mock brads in the corners and the flower embellishments were made with Nellie Snellen flower and emboss punches. The greeting was one that I made myself with a foil embosser.
