Back in the swing of things!

Well, I've been back to crafting  for about 3 or 4 weeks now, and I can honestly say it feels like I never stopped.  I'm going to miss it when I have to get back to studying.  I promised myself when I first started the degree that I would put aside one night a week for art and/or craft, but with a full time job and two children it's impossible, so I'll just have to make the most of it while I can!

I'm sticking with card making for the time being, as I don't want to get all my messy stuff out only to have to put it away again.  I've also decided that all of my Christmas cards are going to be made this year.

The cards shown are the ones I made last weekend and this week.  I will post this weekend's efforts another time.
The two teddy bear cards and the penguin are rubebr stamped and coloured using Promarkers.  Did I say how  much I love my Promarkers?  The teddies were free with a magazine - I can't remember whih one - but I think they're great for freebies!

The reindeer and the santa's sleigh scene were dones using layered stamping and distress inks - probably as messy as I'm going to be getting for now!

The Christmas tree card at the bottom was made using a wooden embellishment which I have decorated using Letraset metallic markers, Stickles and some stick on gems.  I am loving using black on my cards at the moment!

Christmas Cards!

I know it's early, but since I really only have time to make things at the weekend and I want to try and give everyone handmade Christmas cards this year, I have made a start.  The penguins are stamped and coloured using Promarkers.

I've got lots of new Christmas stamps, so there will be more to come!

Still doing cards

This is one I made a couple of weeks ago.  Again stamped and coloured using Promarkers.
