A little posting again

Hi there! Have survived a kiddie party for the first time in my life. Yes! 10 loud lads and a gal. That's a party for sure. It all went fine and my cold is leaving and it feels good. Tired and relaxed is the summery of todays activity.

Now, I have been working with some cards for the teachers and staff at the schools were my kids spends their days and last night when I couldn't sleep I managed to finish the first batch of them. Only 6 to go now, but I have been a clever gal and coloured up some images so it won't take that long to finish. Clever right?

I have used last weeks sketch over at the Sugar bowl as it was a simple one and I didn't want too much fuss as the card is a bit smaller than normally. It's a book card and now at least one of them is filled with some yummy chocolate. Hope it will stay there until it's time to give the card away. LoL

I have showed number 1 here earlier and here comes number two. Once again I have used the image from Sugar Nellie called Snow flake (still a thought). I could go and check for it's name but I am too tired for that. She is coloured with my Letraset family warm greys and reds as main colours. I so have a soft spot for the warm grey shades. If it wasn't given such dull impression to most people I would go all in more than once, that's for sure. And the best part is that greys doesn't look strange as skin tones either. Great colour!

The designer papers are from Dove craft and it's classic range. Love the colours in this collection. Just wonderful for a classy Christmas feel. A bunch of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some ribbon from Joanna Sheen and TGR here in Sweden. Metal corners are also from WOC. A red berrie cluster from Magnolia. A doily from Nellie Snellen. Some extra little details with a snowflake and a wooden button in the flower cluster, just for a little extra to be found in the details.Some golden rod stickles make my Christmas complete this creation. The third card in this "collection" will be shown just another day when I feel like popping something in here. :) Wish you a lovely Saturday with lots of warmth. We have -4 degrees here right now so I guess winter is truly here now. Brrr! Straight down to the basement and the fire I have going there, time to write some letters and do a little colouring now when I am the only one up. My partner is out for a bowling spree with his friends tonight.

Love n hugs

Gorgeous card hun, I love these and really must find a tutorial so I can have a play after the Xmas cards and gifts are finished.
I've been doing the same thing hun, printed or stamped a load of images and coloured them when and where I felt able to. Doing that and using the sketches makes it much easier and quicker to make a finished card - very grateful for the sketch challenges.
You have coloured this beautifully and the details are amazing xx
