18th birthday card

i made this card for my sons girlfriend who was 18 recently,  i used a KennyK digital download,  she is really ainto lime green and black.  the image is coloured with promarkers and the image is inked round the edge with lime green ink then added a bit of glamour dust to the edge.

Have made a card for the current MSE challange,  which is winter not christmas so im not sure if my card counts.
anyway used a stamp that came free with one of the magazines and have heat embossed some snowflakes onto the image.  Papers are some i bought of FB and have used some forever friends ribbon and some corner stickers.

my sons crafting

i think my 2 boys are developing the crafting bug and they have both made cards for my mums birthday next week, im letting my 9yr old use the promarkers as he is fairly careful, but the 4 year old i think i will let him stick to pencils for a couple of years yet as he is quite heavy handed.

this is bens card,  he is 9 and even tho i pick the colours for him he is getting really good , very proud of his colouring

this is harrisons card, he is 4 yrs old and he loves his bling and glitter card

big stamp and craft show

i have had a lovely day wandering around the craft show on my own,  no hubby and no kids, but would love to go with someone who is crafty but no one lives near
spent loads of money but could have probably spent 3 times more anyway here is a picture of my stash that i got today, can't wait till kids go to school so i can have a play

new cards

have made a card for my mums birthday next week , i am quite pleased how it turned out ,  i have used a humpreys corner image coloured with promarkers with some backing papers and cards from my stash.
the flowers were made using a marianne creatables die and some beads i had in my tin.
i have also made a candle to match which was stamped on ordinary paper and then stuck on using a heatgun

have also made my first christmas card again using a free humprey stamp, image coloured using promarkers and have used glamour dust here and there to highlight the snow
