Christmas In July @ Live & Love Crafts

Hello everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Live and Love Crafts, our theme is 'Christmas In July'. Christmas cards aren't my favourite things to make, I don't know why, and colouring in a Christmas image in the heat we are having was a bit off too, lol.

I love blue and brown for a colour combo, and these Maja Design paper's from the Vintage Frost Basics collection goes fab with Kraft paper. I have distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz tool.

I have coloured Tilda in with Distress reinkers, and added frantage to emulate snow. I have had my eye on the ornament doohickeys for a while, and it hasn't disappointed. I have added glamour dust along the stripes. If you fancy getting an early Christmas card in check out my Etsy shop HERE as I have added this card there.

Thanks for popping by,

Morning everyone, I'm here with you today with my card for Wild Orchid Crafts, and today I don't have a coloured image!!!!

Cute Sakura Tilda

Good evening everyone, with another card for Live and Love Crafts, and this time I have gone for the blues in the new collection from Pion Design.

Also, I was too poorly last week to make my card for the midway reminder at All About Magnolia, you still have until Sunday to enter and our theme is Lace and Pearls.

Cute Sakura Tilda has been coloured with Distress Reinkers. The paper is once again from the new Pion collection, this sheet is Plumbago Auriculata, isn't that just the best name for some paper-I'd never remember it though, or be able to say it after a few glasses of wine though, lol. The edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool.

Have you seen the cute little glass bottles? I think they are adorable, I have added a little bit of glitter, fastened some twine around it and added a mini heart.

I am entering this in to the very last challenge at Totally Tilda, I have been lucky enough to be part of this amazing team twice, and wish Susie and all of the girls the very best for the future.

Thank you for popping by,
