Been busy crafting tonight!

Tonight, i've been quite busy making these:

This one is done using the template for a Rocking card on hammered effect card. Ive used a blue piece of card for the layers, and stuck on a Lili of the Valley die cut which I think is rather cute! I have made the polar bear 'sit' on glitter so it looks a bit like snow. However, im not happy with the finished look, it needs something else... Any reccommendations welcome please! :)

This one I have used red marble effect card stock for the actual card and the layer. I have coloured in the Forever Friends bear using Reeves watercolour pencils and added some glitter. The white fluffy stuff is a thread I bought for my cross stitches but I cannot use it so thought it would look well. I have added a metal 'Made with Love' charm and some peel offs.

This one I have used the hammered effect card again, and cross stitched Santa getting stuck in the chimney. I think its quiet comical and have stamped the card with christmas greetings, and used some peel offs for the sentiment.

I have used red and black card stock (Black for the layering!) and a piece of organza ribbon. I stitched this cute penguin a year ago so I have put him to good use this year! I have embelleshed the card with some little red dots that were gifted to me by Lynn :)

I am making a load of cards this year because I am hoping to get some sent off to a lady called Wendy who sticthes cards for a cat rescue centre where she lives.

I love your cards - especially the cute penquin one.

I love all of your cards they are so adorable. I think the polar bear could use some small flakes or something coming down like snow?

Hi Katie

Great cards, the penguin is my favourite. He must have taken ages to stitch.

Well done
