POLLYCRAFT /BASIC GREY CHALLENGE/CHRISTMAS CARDS/

POLLYCRAFT CHALLENGE - STRIPES
What a lovely day ive had! this morning didn't start well, and i didn't get to make any cards until later this afternoon, when the children were outside making the most of the autumn sunshine!! I made this card for the Pollycraft Challenge - Stripes. I used one of the adorable pollycraft rubber stamps and coloured her in with my pro-markers, her fur is glittered with stickles. Her shoes have been glossy accented! Ribbon, gems and snowflakes from my stash.



BASIC GREY CHALLENGE - SHAPES
This weeks challenge over at basic grey was to use different shapes, i've used triangles and rectangles. The paper is from one of my favourite two scoops pad! The image is a penny black stickeroo. Flowers are prima, the leaves are a McGill punch (i think) and the glass baubles are from my stash.

IRIS FOLDING CHRISTMAS TREE STAMP
The next two cards are made using an iris folding stamp designed by my good friend Anna. The first is a monochromatic card and i have to say is one of my favourites.

Secondly a more traditional coloured card!



And finally a quick birthday card, using one of the adorable Pollycraft download images.


So thats what i've been up to today. I'm a happy bunny that i actually managed to get 2 cards made , only another 30 to go!
Have a good evening, hugs to you all Linda x
