Hi friends, 
I am battling a virus at the moment and feeling quite crappy so this  little tag seems to be fairly appropriate to share. 

These are some little mini stamps from the Pink and Blue Ribbon donation collection 2014.
I've usesd See no Evil, Hear no Evil and Speak no Evil Tildas for my "Hope" tag. 

The papers are Maja Design. Lace and embellishments are from the Ribbon Girls. 
Lots of Doo Hickeys used too. 

Have a great day xx

Tilda som Tomte

Yep, back again. I seem to be spending a lot of time at my craft desk lately. 
This is a very old Magnolia stamp from 2006 - Tilda som Tomte.  She is masked with Winter Fence from 2008 Santa collection.

I have coloured the little scene with DIs again, practice, practice, practice. 
The papers are Maja Design.

A lott of Doo Hickey die cuts to embellish along with some lace and ribbon. 

So another Christmas card to cross off the list! Loads more to come.

Happy Friday the 13th. It is only 6 weeks until Christmas so I am on a bit of a roll with the Christmas cards at the moment. 

This jolly fellow is Santa/Tomte from the 2007 Jul collection by Magnolia. 
He has been coloured with DI Walnut Stain to (hopefully) achieve a sepia effect. 

It is a little hard to see in the photo but I've stamped the background with a snowflake stamp in Versamark and embossed with white powder. 

The papers are Maja Design from last year's collection. 

Pinecone, pearls and flowers are from Ribbon Girl.
Sentiment is LOTV.

Die cuts are Tim Holtz, Memory Box, Doo Hickey and Go Kreate. A bit of a mix up this time. 

It was a heap of fun colouring up a really old stamp, this little Santa is adorable. 
I might have to get out my other older Magnolia stamps and see what I have hidden away.

In the Snow Ski Tilda

It is a dark and wet day here today, Perfect weather for crafting. 
I pulled out my water colours for this card. Not something I'm 100% comfortable with and definitely need practice!  However I am fairly pleased with how this turned out. 

This is In the Snow Ski Tilda from Winter Wonderland collection of 2013,
The papers are very old Basic Grey. 

The card is embellished with Doo Hickey dies and Tim Holtz dies. 

So a little bit of fun and obviously more practice is needed. 
Ohhh, I wish I had more time up my sleeve! 

Hugs, Kylie x

Santa waiting for Christmas

Happy Friday friends, 
Oh dear, another dreary day here so I thought I'd brighten it up by putting together a card.
It is quite lightly embellished, which is a bit of a change for me. 
I did add some stitching and sequins for some fun. 

This adorable Santa and his chimney is from 2008 Santa collection from Magnolia. 
Both are coloured with Copics. I spent a lot of time trying to get some depth into the red. 
The papers are Maja Design. 

I hope to get back to my craft desk at some point over the weekend but I have an assignment that is due soon so I'd probably best do that... 

Until next time!
Hugs x

Snowy Cottage

Hello friends, 
Well.. today I didn't feel like doing much at all, no housework, no studies, nope, nothing. So I sat myself down at my craft desk for a little while and coloured in a cute little Magnolia stamp "Snowy Cottage" from the Waiting for Christmas 2014 collection. 

I have had a bit of a play with some of the amazing new dies from the Doo Hickey club too. They are just lovely. I think my favourite has to be the gorgeous snowflake. 

The card is cut into a circle free hand and to disguise the rough edges I distressed them and added a border cut from a Doo Hickey die. The papers are Maja Design.
Image is coloured with Copics markers. 

This was a fun card to put together on a rainy day. I wish I could get away with a few more 'crafting' days but something tells me the never ending washing and housework generated by two little boys won't allow that! 

Thanks for dropping by today
