Just a quick post from me this evening .... please excuse the dodgy photo but I spent the whole afternoon with several cards on the go at once, and by the time anything came together it was already dark! I could have waited until tomorrow I guess, but I wanted to post this card as it is just skidding in by the seat of its pants to the deadline for Cupcake Craft Challenge #64, which is the following sketch.
I inked up my Popcorn Christmas bears for the first time today ... really gorgeous but boy, are they big! This does have one advantage though when trying to make a few Christmas cards, insomuch as there isn't a lot of room left on the card for too much other fancy work (that's my excuse anyway lol!)
I would also like to enter this card for Allsorts #26 - bring out your bling - I hope you can see the sparkle on the bear's hat and the glitter card snowflake ;-)
Recipe: Main image & sentiment: Popcorn the bear "Beary Merry Christmas" - bears and surrounding musical notes. Bears coloured with watercolour pencils and doecorated with polar white Flowersoft and glamour dust. Paper: Kaisercraft; "ice gold" pearlised white card from Edwin Allen; Supplies: sparkly red brad by Doodlebug; spacer from my stash; Tools: Cuttlebug "embossed snowflakes" folder; Martha Stewart "Arctic Snowflake" punch.
Gotta go now and get sorted for the working week ahead .. no rest for the wicked, so they say!
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
