Christmas Elf #2

Hurrah for Fridays!  Beers are in the fridge chillin nicely and nibbles at the ready ... so this is a super quick visit to blogland!  :)

I couldn't resist using my little Elf again before I tidied my craft desk a.k.a. kitchen table!  Coloured again with watercolour pencils to match my oldie DP.  Wink of Stella added to his hat and scarf, and then some clear gloss and glitter also added for more sparkle.  Oldie gold peel offs from stash.  Memory Box circular die.

Stamp used from Eat Cake Graphics:

This little girl would be perfect for any of your kitty loving friends!  She's a real cutie!  I've coloured her with watercolour pencils and then chalked in some clouds.  I embossed my pink background with an old Cuttlebug folder and then added some white paint splatters.  A Paper Smooches die cut heart, some silver sequins and a couple of staples to finish.

40th Birthday Card

I've had no mojo all week so it was a bit of a struggle to make this card,!  If my memory serves correctly I think Nicola's a big fan of giraffes, so hopefully she likes this!

I've used an old Whipper Snapper stamp - coloured with watercolour pencils and then Wink of Stella added to his markings.  I've chalked my background using an MFT stencil.  Sparkly peel off numbers from stash, and Paper Smooches sentiment / alpha / heart die.
