This is one I made earlier........

I have had no success with my card making this week everything has ended in the bin
so it was lucky that I had this to fall back on.
Love this Teddy he has such a gorgeous face 

To his eyes and nose I added just a spot of dimesional magic
and also to the holly and berries on the present.
The sparkly ribbon is some I have had for years and as it is wired
I gathered it just a little to show off the sheen.

Floral Digi

 It is freezing here we haven't got to double figures today.
I did just slip to the shops this morning when the sun shone for a few minutes
and the breeze from the mountain was bitter. 
There was snow on the top I could just see between the clouds.
that is why I am sitting here with the heater on
I hate to think what my electricity bill will be like.

A floral digi only my second digi ever would you believe.
I don't know why I have a thing about digi's.
This one is for Digi Haven and it comes from Beccy's Place

I thought it was so beautiful that I couldn't resist it and
Digi Haven have a floral challenge and even tell you where to get the digi's from.
The colours have not photographed very well unfortunately.
the flowers I coloured with:
V12 - 15- 17 and the leaves with
G 21 - 28  YG 63 I think.
I realise I really need some more G's
The bling was also coloured with YG63
I shadowed it with G000
and sponged around the outside with Fabrico Wisteria.

I painted the petals with Smooch Glitz {nail polish for cards}
and I embossed the white  card with a border from
Cuttlebug - With Love borders.
It is all finished with scraps of ribbon from my stash

I am entering this into:
Digi Haven - Floral challenge
Beccy's Place - Use one of her images.

Some of my favorite things

How can one possibly choose a favorite PB stamp they are all so cute.
This is one that I have had sitting in the background for a while looking for somewhere to go.
To tell the truth I think I followed a sketch and didn't get the card finished in time.
Sorry I caught the flash with the bling my mistake.

I love all PB cute stamps this is one that I haven't used for ages.
I love my copics, the balloon was coloured pink then dotted with the blender.
Don't know about you but I use my blender a lot.
Don't have a black copic so the eyes nose and pads were coloured with
a tombow and then given 3D effect with Dimensional Magic
and a tooth pick.  What would I do without the help of my tooth picks.
Then there is the grossgrain ribbon which I love because it is firm
and makes super bows and doesn't slip around when you are trying to fix it in place.
So there you have a few of my favorite things which is just right for
the ........

Holly Christmas

My blog has had many faces this week and it is still a work in progress
and I did find how to change my type thank goodness.

As I have followed Dawny's sketch on Papertake Weekly I must get this published today.
Well I have sort of followed the sketch but when I start I never really know just where
I am going to end up.
sometimes in the BIN!!!!!!!!!!!
I have tried to add sparkle without adding any bling with my sparkly
DP, the glittery thread and the gorgeous ribbon.
No idea where I got that from.
Tilda's fur is flocking that has some glitter in it but it doesn't show up in the photo.

You will probably see from the shadows in the top photo that I have 3D everything.

Am entering this in:
Papertake weekly-  Sketch
Simon says stamp - Anything goes
Secret crafter - Anything goes
Make it Monday -Anything goes
Just keep on crafting - Anything goes
Winter wonderland - Holly

Hope you have all enjoyed a lovely weekend with sunny skies.
