A Christmas Tag

A little Christmas tag to share with you all today! This was created using Spellbinder Poinsettia and Heirloom Ornament Dies.  I took the largest of the die cut and stamped all over with a music stamp and distressed the edges, all using Barn door. I die cut the poinsettia flower on card and again added distress ink, then I sewed the button into the centre.  I wanted to add some texture, so die cut the leaves using red felt.  Love the finished tag, although took some time to complete!

I would like to enter my tag in the following challenges:

Manchester Day Out - Christmas Markets

Hi All!
After having a very frosty week, we decided to go into Manchester on Friday to experience the Festive Christmas Markets and it decided to rain!!  We carried on though (after purchasing an umbrella), stopping for lunch in a cabin and a gluhwein.  I took some photos to share with you all.

There are lots of the markets in the city centre.  The Santa photo was taken outside the Town Hall, where it was still very busy, considering the weather.  Good Day out overall, with a few more Christmas presents purchased!xx

With Sympathy

Evening All!
I recently was in need of making some Sympathy cards and tried to keep them white and delicate in design.
I used my Spellbinder crosses and layered two together.  The background was embossed with the tied together folder, and the pearls were made using the Cosmic Shimmer black glue.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Birthday Card

Hi All!
Another simple card today, similar to my previous post, apart from the size of card and this one has a butterfly! The backing paper I have had for some time, then used the off cut to make the butterfly with my Spellbinder dies, added some ribbon and another glittery peel off.x

Clean and Simple Birthday Card.....

 Good Afternoon Everyone!
I have a clean and simple card to share today that I made a few of, for a craft fayre last week.  I wanted to make as many out of a 12 x 12 piece of card  as I could, so made 4 of these small square cards.
I used my Spellbinder dies for the flower and the scalloped edge, coloured the ribbon with a pink Pro Marker and added a glittery Birthday peel off. Very simple, but a favourite of mine, had to keep one for my myself!
