Christmas carol

Hi Folks!
Oh! my goodness there is only a few weeks to Christmas left, and guess who is still frantically tryng to get Christmas cards made...
I hope you like this little one, it's a LOTV card again...i do love thier images.
This one i think has a very victorian feel about it.
Although i love the soft pastel colours, i do still like the traditional Christmas colours, Reds and Greens.
so here is one I made for a Customer...Hope you like it.

Birthday card "Relax"

Here is a Birthday card again using the LOTV  "Lazy afternoon" which is another favourite of mine.
It is for a 70th Birthday card for a Hindu male, and of course sparkle is essential.
I am told that flowers are perfectly acceptable for men in the Hindu community, but i have yet to bring myself to put flowers on a man's card.
The papers are from a Brenda Walton scrap pad, gold stickles, the lovely corners are from WOC Buttons from my stash and the gorgeous ribbon is from my local sewing shop and the sentiment is printed off my printer and cut from a spellbinders die.

Christmas is coming "Christmas candle"

Good morning folks!
This morning sees the first flutterings of Snow here in the South of England, and i must admit it always brings a smile to my face.
I do love Snow, but then i don't have to go out in it, I sit and admire it from the warmth of my cosy craft room.
Today i want to show you a few cards made this week.
I know it's a shock for you as i usually leave it weeks before i post new stuff, but i am definitely on a roll at the mo.
As you must know by now i love the LOTV stamps and images, so here are a few for you.
they can be purchased from LOTV website.
I am also criticized for not giving enough info on what i have used to make my cards, so i am now adding more info and links to help you find the ingredients. 

The Image is called "Christmas candle" the pink Poinsettia's are from my stash smothered with Twinklits to give a frosty effect.

I have used some Magnolia papers and Crystal stems, the Mulberry roses and Organza ribbon are from WOC

I used Twinklits to give a snow flake effect and also on the hood of the coat.

Happy Sunday Folks!
Well although i don't seem to put many cards up on my Blog on a regular basis, i do try to make up for lost time......a whole batch at a time.
I have been making a few cards over the past few weeks, due to me having to take things a bit easier for health reasons i force myself to put work second and me first.
What better way of chilling out than to play with all my stress free and so relaxing.
I have a few cards to share with you today, the Wedding card is a commission for a Christmas Wedding, so i have added lots of sparkle and some lovely Magnolia crystals as well as Magnolia papers, lace and of course the all time favourite LOTV Wedding day couple.
The inside matches the outside too, so it looks  pretty good i think.
I hope it has a wintery feel about it, as that was the idea i had.
The other cards are just because!! and a variety of Embossing folders and LOTV images.
I decided i had to make more use of my lovely Prismacolor pencils and my Promarkers, so i got them out and dusted off the cobwebs.
I hope you like them...
