Tim Holtz Couple Dies - Xmas card

This is my Christmas card to hubby, again using the Tim Holtz die set (Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 664731).- such a great set and so effective against scenic background papers,

We're still doing Christmas here - still have Holly, Emily and Violet staying over for a few more days.  Em's Jack will also be joining us in the new year for a week or so - and to celebrate Em's birthday!
We've had a great Christmas and hope you did too.xx

Passion for Markers Mega Christmas Challenge - use Die Cuts

Hi Folks 

Well it's that time of year - yep, time for our Mega Christmas challenge over at a Passion for Markers The challenge runs for the whole month of December and into the New Year, ending on the 3rd January 2023.  

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “use die cuts”.  We don't mind what you create for this challenge, as long as you use some die cuts and colour with your markers!  You are welcome to make Christmas creations but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your markers such as Promarkers, Copics, Spectrum Noir, Karin, Zig Clean Color etc

My die cuts are from the November release from Marianne Designs, - I love these cute animals carolling around the tree and so great that you can die cut them out to add to your make.  My full list of products used is below.

A Floral card today!

This is my card for my sister's birthday last week.  I made the background in a great online Eileen Godwin workshop which I haven't yet finished!   More inspiration was taken from the fabulous Chrissy Ballingal on Facebook here - love her style.  Do check out the wonderful creations of these two ladies - I think they create beautiful pieces!

I've used a Visible image stencil and gesso for the background with distress sprays.  I've then added the die cut flowers which are a Honey Bee Cone Flower Die Set.  The sentiment is from a PaperTrey Ink set.

I also made my sister a sunflower throw which I'll share soon!
