cr00340-cr00341

These cards were created on 11th November; day 11 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

Yes, more yetis… They are a nice, fairly simple, shape which lent itself well to being used for testing a bunch of different ways of adding texture and sparkle, and it would be a shame to waste those test pieces🙂

This time I created a stamped tree background for them to stand in front of.

I picked up this greetings stamp set so I would have some decent-sized sentiments that would work to create any last minute cards that are needed (there are always at least a couple). I made a couple of quick cards for my Christmas card stash and took the opportunity to try out the resist papers I picked up from Wow!

Christmas: I heart books

This card was created on 15th November; day 15 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

I love this stamp set by Sandy and I’m so glad I managed to finally get it to the top of my “to be coloured” stamp pile. At this time of year my mind is firmly fixated on making innumerable Christmas cards and this image lent itself perfectly to creating a chilled Christmas scene.
