Thomas Kinkade For Special Friends

Every year a friend asks me to make a card for friends of his family in Ireland and this year was just the same. As the people to receive the card are huge Thomas Kinkade fans (as I am) each year I try to make a different card. This is my effort for this years card, a beautiful church nestled in the valley, with a footpath winding through the snow. The topper has been decoupaged and mounted onto some textured silver card, before being mounted onto the backing paper. The die is a Sue Wilson die which I cut in card and then sprayed with stick and spray and covered in glitter.

Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Rudolph Days and Getting Back To Normal

Well I know that it's been a while since I last posted. Thank you to those who expressed concern but it was just life (and decorating) getting in the way. I'm glad to say that after 4 months of not having a Craft Room, I moved back in this week. Below are the first results of makes in the new improved room. Because everything had to be moved out and then moved back again it gave me a chance to explore some stamps from Chocolate Baroque that have not been for an outing for a few years. They were stamped onto white card and then coloured with pencils before getting the distress ink treatment. Then mounted onto some matching card and backing papers from Artylicious Seasons Greeting CD. I made these with the Rudolph Days Challenge over at Scrappy Mo's. This is the last challenge this year but I will continue to join in next year, it's a great way to get a head start on the Christmas cards.

I hope to have some more cards to share over the weekend, but next week I'm taking a short break with some crafting friends from the UKSN at the Manor House Hotel in Devon. Lots of different crafting things to try, so I'm looking forward to this.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
