Christmas Cheer

Hello again :)
Well, we got our snow at last! Unfortunately, it only lasted about an hour, and now we're back to freezing rain...oh well...I was excited for a little while!

So I have had an awful lot of cards on order this last month or so, including an order for 15 cards for a regular customer who comes to me every year! Here is one of the designs I have made for four of his 8x8in cards...

I coloured this gorgeous stamp (Christmas Cheer by Papermania) before stamping with my Stampin' Up! markers in Real Red, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake, though I only used Crumb Cake under the gold glitter. If you think it sounds like it's too time consuming, it really isn't! It only took about 9 minuted to colour and takes me much longer to colour an image I can tell you! Though I must admit, I did actually stamp it 3 times before I got these four...once on the wrong card, once I didn't like the colours, and once I stamped off the edge of the card lol! 
I finished with some gems from my stash.

And here is proof it doesn't take that long...
All four that I made, each personalised.


That's all from me tonight, but don't forget, I'd be very happy to order any Stampin' Up! products for you, including these wonderful markers! Feel free to contact me on 07915 698577 or email me at
