Sleigh-Hey London (FMS317)

Here's a special card for a very special someone :)  You know who you are 💓

You have been with me through thick and thin. You encourage me every day to follow my dreams and assure me that I have what it takes to cope with each day. May it be a very Merry and Blessed Christmas to you and I will see you soon to put this in your hand!
I wanted to challenge myself to make a masculine shaker card as well. Extra fine glitter with silhouette images did the trick. 

I used Freshly Made Sketches number 317.  I turned it upside down so that I can have Santa flying high!

God bless!

Thanks pocket (CTS251)

I am so happy to play with Cas(e) this Sketch again. It's been too long ....

Die-cut from Spellbinders; including pocket made from a Spellbinders frame die-cut and scored with Scor-pal to shape the pocket.
Butterflies die-cuts from Joy! Crafts.

It's annual summer holidays here in South Africa and I hope to craft some more in the coming week!!

God bless

A great floral day

A relatively quick card with some straight stamping and cut-out flowers:

Sentiment is an old one from Unity Stamp Company and floral stamp from Gina K Designs.

God bless

Merry Christmas with a cuppa

My regular coffee shop hangout is Cafe Fino in Strubensvalley (South Africa) and the staff there are like family.  It's also like my 2nd office :) Or maybe more like HQ....

I made this card for them to celebrate Christmas and to say thank you for their kind service through the year:

The cups were stamped, shaded roughly with ink pads and foam applicators. Some white gel pen added for highlighting and colouring. The 'string' is hand drawn with some liquid pearls. 

If you would like to know the mug stamp I used (it also comes with a teacup-and-saucer) please leave a comment below. 

The sentiment is from a Unity Stamp Company set.

Thank you for visiting!


Snowboard Santa

I was looking for a cool image for a teenager and found this gem at Mo's Digital Pencil:
