manga girl

Another birthday swap card. The birthday was yesterday so thought I would now share the card with you. The stamp is fromSugarnellie (now there's a suprise) I adore the latest manga stamps they have. They are a dream to colour (promarkers again) I also am really loving my butterfly punch. It is the same as the recent xcut limited edition one that was out of stock everywhere but I managed to track this lookalike one down. Although the casing isnt the cute black and pink of the xcut one (its actually yellow) the punch is identical. Sorry for the squint picture!

It can't be Christmas already

Now I know I don't post as much as I should, particularly at the moment as it's school holidays time but even I know its a bit early for Christmas Cards. However we had a fun swap over on the Crafttelly forum called Christmas in July and this was my effort. I love,love love Christmas. I think it is a reaction to the fact that my dear mum just didnt like Christmas at all. My parents were jewellers and the run up to Christmas was always incredibly busy So by the time the actual day arrived she was shattered after working all hours and looking after us kids and running the home. Give me a santa, a few reindeer and some petty fairy lights and I'm in heaven! My card is a stamped image coloured with promarkers then I added some glitter Jewels on the tree. Only 146 days to go....
ETA... the stamp I used is from a Craft UK Christmas Collection plate (CUKS33) called santa and penquin
