Candy Christmas cards

Good morning ladies This post was originaly to be posted Tuesday but Iwill post it today as I wont be blogging or crafting til late, as its my eldest lad's birthday.

Happy Birthday Kris....

This is going to be a quick post before I head off to the hospital for more iron. My operation got cancelled yesterday so now I have to wait for a new date. (Update. I had my last drip friday - final count of six pints of iron) until my next check up.

So in the meantime I would like to share with you some cards I made using the kit that i split in half and I am now offering as candy. The kit came in colour and white. The white toppers can be coloured. I kept the white and some lilac for myself and the rest I wanted to share with you lovely ladies.

Without my followers, I would be lost, as you keep my spirits lifted. I also don't think I would have half as many cards made if it wasn't for the positive feedback I get. So I would like to thank  everyone who has taken time to visit my blogs and  taken thhe time to leave such beautiful comments. There has been so many times I have felt like giving up crafting and restarting one of my other passions  like writing and drawing.

I think that is enough waffle from me, so I think its time to share some cards

Snowflake topper

The base card comes from the kit. I used a marther stewart punch on the lilac paper.
I put some white glittery ribbon the centre of this paper.
I  added the snowflake topper, which was made taking snowflakes from the lilac and white topper sheets.
Challenge over at Jingle Belles is snowflakes based on a song called Suzie Snowflake
sung by Rosemary Cloonie.....

Deer pre-printed onto white card

Topper - Deer and Card from candy kit
Black pearl from stash.

Here is a basic card made from candy materials

Third card

I also made the next card using papers from the candy kit and an image from Magnolia

The card and the background papers are from the candy kit

I then covered her in Diamond dust

I stamped the circle and the sentiment. I masked the original image so that there was nothing in the cirle. I then added glittery tilda.

Here is a quickie Christmas card - that  I have included here because of the colours
I chose on the card..... Prune Bv02, Blue berry Bv04, E00 for skin and Eo8 for the hair.

The image used here is from Lily of the Valley

I am going to enter the cards into the following challenges

Although i missed the christmas challenge because i put the cards on my blog but forgot to connect these cards  to the sites listed I have decided to  enter the next challenge. This challenge wants cards with no sentiments which i have here on this page.

And I love the way you made Tilda's dress.
What did you use for that?

And I would also wish Happy Birthday to Kris!

I am envious that you can work with white and come out with beautiful cards, when I work with white I get a fabulous collection of grubby fingerprints immortalized in a card! Thanks for sharing with us at Christmas Crafting this month :o)
