           Beautiful faces and Good news

Good morning and a very warm welcome to my blog . Today i would like to share some good news and a couple of cards i made yesterday. 
My good news is i have been chosen as "BLOG OF THE WEEK " over at  ALL THINGS CRAFTY  facebook page .  I am so proud :) 
Its a super group where you can share your blog and  everyone is so welcoming and friendly . Its Run by the  lovely Emma Goddard who kindly puts in so much work keep her fellow crafters happy .

The images for the cards are from Dilly beans . I fell in love with them as soon as i saw them . They have such beautiful eyes that capture you in there spell.  I have used my promarkers to colour them .The large blue flower is a flower forming flower from creata. It is the first one i have made and is attached to a badge pin and secured to the card so it can be removed . The greeting is from my stash and stamped in Denim by Tim Holtz. I have used Sizzix dies for the swirls and a butterfly from creata which i altered the colour using my promarkers.

 For this card i coloured the image again using my promarkers and on both images i have glazed the eyes to give them extra shine . the snow flakes were cut using my faithful Cricut Machine . The greeting is also from my stash. I have added a couple of silver bells suspended on some pink bakers twine.

I thank you all for stopping by and taking the time to comment and wish you all a happy day full of smiles .

 Today i would like to share with you some cards that i made this morning using images from Carley Duff from Creata .

 This first card is made using a stunning image of a Christmas gift.
I have also used Carley's poinsettia image to make myself some decoupage as it gives a great 3d effect and depth.
I have also glazed them to give a lovely shine. The backing papers are from Stampin up.

My second card i have used the little elf which has been coloured with my promarkers and matted and layered onto some die cuts . The star i hand cut as i have no star dies as yet !!! I have used a couple of bell suspended on some matching bakers Twine .

My 3rd make is the same image as the 1st but i have used a different colour way . Its is such a great versatile image.

And last but not least is the little angel , How adorable is she and ideal for a little girls Christmas. 

I'm sorry for the poor quality of the pictures but i think my camera is playing up....New one for Christmas maybe .
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a fantastic weekend.
Luv and Hugs
