Getting Crafty for Christmas Day 1

I can't believe another week has passed by and the weekend is just around the corner.  I think this year has flown by faster than any other.  Its hard to believe its a year since my hip op too.  The years been full of change and opportunity and there's lots to look forward to next year as well…….. exciting times ahead……:-) 

I know we're only in November but I've been brushing up my colouring skills and making a few Christmas cards using my new Molly Blooms stamps.  I stood them up on the side board to take a few pics last night, and as Oli's friends came round they were looking at them and all put in orders.  I've got over 25 in the bag and more to come …  eeeek  I'll have to learn to colour faster.  The one above was the first I made with vintage card blanks from WhichcraftUK and I'll share a few more of them with you over the next week or so.

Here's what I used to make it:
Card Blank - Scallop Circle Step Cards from Whichcraftuk 
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink 
Cloud Template DiamondcardcraftUK
Star Dust Stickles 
Copic Markers 
Black Momento Ink 
Molly Bloom Stamps - Robin, Candlelight Companions and Pinecone Perch

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend and catch up again soon…….. :-) C


  1. Morning Clare, Wow !! I love this card, it is sooooooo cute, your colouring is gorgeous. I intend starting 'learning' how to colour-in, I have just got a complete set of new pens, I have the stamps already, so I'm all set to 'have a go' ha ha, I have watched a few YouTube videos on the tips and techniques, which have given me inspiration, but I think it will take me a while to 'master' the art ha ha. I will be looking 'in awe' at your colouring projects, this one is stunning.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
    PS I made a Lemon and Coconut cake, and Graham took it to work, it didn't last long and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, yesterday Graham came home and said he'd had a request for 'any chance of a Lemon Drizzle cake' !!! xx
