The last one

Well, in typical fashion, I finished the last Christmas card today, wrapped the final presents and now I'm all ready to go! Anyway, I thought I'd share this final masterpiece with you, it's another cutie Christmas card. (Edited 14/03/10) I replaced the first picture I took of this card with one taken by my son, Neil sometime later. He's got the posh camera and a tripod so the picture is of a much highr quality. I think I'll make hime official photographer of my cards in future!

Have a peaceful, joyous Christmas Day everyone!

Well, there's snow outside so it seemed like the right weather for finishing a Christmas card which I expect all those of you out there in blogland are tired of seeing! I've had an image of the finished card in my mind for some time but, even so, it still seems to take me forever to finish one of these cards - I think I just play with all the bits and pieces too much. I've been greatly inspired by Bev Rochester's blog in relation to these Magnolia images so thanks, Bev!
Because my photography is so awful, I ended up scanning this card which is why the roses look squashed. Looks like I need a photgraphy class if I'm going to continue blogging!

You'll have to check out CB's blog to find out what this little bit of nonsense is all about but here's a picture of the ATC to which she refers. I have to say that I had no one in particular in mind when using the tape measure ribbon!

Needless to say, the Printers Tray project to which this ATC currently belongs is not yet finished. Watch this space for further news of it!

I'm not sure of the name of this little cutie but she was the second Tilda I sat on a card.

Tilda with lollipop

I thought I'd upload a couple of the Magnolia Tilda cards that I've made recently. I never thought that I'd be attracted to the 'cute' stamp style but I've become quite attached to these little angels and find that colouring them with Copics is quite therapeutic. This one is the first card I made, which I coloured first then spent ages finding papers to match the colours I'd chosen. I've since learned that it's much easier to find the papers then choose the Copics to blend with them!

The other thing that becomes obvious is that I need to improve my photography skills!!
