The Skaters

I came across this old stamp yesterday and thought I'd have a little play with it.  I used to love Stamps Happen stamps and do have quite a few tucked away. I coloured it with water colour paints and then just added lots of glitter. It's quite a big stamp and almost filled this 6x6 card so didn't feel it needed much adding. I'd like to enter into ABC Christmas challenge which is Anything Goes Or Berries.
There are berries on both the holly and the mistletoe too. 

My blog is a bit neglected at the moment as I seem to be busy with other stuff but hopefully back to posting more frequently soon.

Didn't enter the challenge as I couldn't see how to enter without giving information that I didn't want to give !

Trains/Planes/ Automobiles

We've got a lot of male birthdays coming up in the next two months so I should be concentrating on them but can't seem to get myself out of Christmas card mode, already made two batches of six cards and a few single ones, as I had made more than I needed for Christmas just gone I need to stop now!
I usually enjoy making men's cards but mojo isn't working too well right now.  This is a really CAS card for me and I still don't know if I should have added the die cuts but it looked so bare without them! It can go in the birthday box anyhow.Couple of challenges I'd like to enter

Something old or something new

It's time for the first challenge of 2019 at Try It On Tuesday and this time the challenge is to use something new or something you haven't used for a while.
For my card I have used Penny Black Dreamy stamp, although it is an old PB stamp it is one I have wanted for ages and I was so happy to receive it at Christmas ,along with lots of other goodies ,from my lovely sister . I have also used the Bokah technique on my background which is also an old technique but it is the first time I've done it. I took the inspiration from Viv's blog, thanks Viv !
So my "New" is the stamp and the technique.

Add some sparkle

Well here we go with my first Christmas card of 2019 !  The challenge this time at Sparkles Christmas is chosen by Jane and she asks that we add some sparkle, it's hard to show sparkle on here but my card has got lots of glittery sparkle on it. I have used Penny Black Restful stamp for the scene and added Santa and sleigh with an Inkylicious stamp, can't remember where the snowman came from, it's an old stamp.  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you all a very Happy New Year.
