Blue Bird of Xmas

Hi everyone Today's card was inspired by the song "Put your records on" as the opening line is ...

Three little birds sat on my window and they told me not to worry.

Anyway I found my favourite bird out a set of three from The Greeting Farms Vintage birds set, looked up the bluebird and coloured him in. I saw a couple of pictures with snow and I had some left over Designer Paper and silver card from another xmas card so I came up with today's card.

For the wreath I coloured the flowers from SU Artful Asian set with white gel pen, then cut them out and stuck them around a scollap spellbinder die cut. I used the sentiment from a SU stamp set but I can't remember the name.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Colour Create Challenge - ROBIN EGG BLUE, SEA FOAM GREEN and CREAM
Crazy 4 Challenges - Circles
Speedy the Cat and Friends - Circles
Stampin Royalty - Designer paper
Wild Orchids Challenge - Blue Christmas.
Mad for markers - non traditional colours xmas cards

See you around

Sweet Romance

Hi Everyone,

I have a card to suit several challenges today. Firstly the Sketch is for the Midnight Maddness Challenge #79 and I absolutely love the sketch. The second challenge is the colour challenge over at Colour Throwdown - Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Kraft (crumble cake).

I have used the TGF images from Miss Anya range and coloured them in with copics, the kraft background has been stamped with Soft Suede with SU's punch potporri love heart and the small love hearts have been punched out and the edges distressed with soft suede.
I have also added this card into Anyone for Anya - Kraft card.

I hope you like the card.

Happy Birthday Marcela

Hi Everyone,

Well its another dreary day, we have gone from being on strict water restriction due to low dam levels and no rain to almost flooding, it seems to be raining everyday or look like its going to rain, but the most disappointing things NO Thunderstorms! I love thunderstorms so I was hoping for a good season over the next summer months.

Any how....

It's my cousin's daughter 2nd birthday this weekend and I have made her a special card using the sketch from Anyone for Anya?. I used the ballerina Anya as she is so cute and fit in well with Marcela. I coloured her to look like Marcela with copics and added glitter glue to the tiara and tutu.
The colours are from the Colour Challenge at Stampin' Royalty - Cajun Craze, Marina Mist, Pear Pizazz and So Saffron.

lots of Gecko Kisses
