Dora's Snow people

It is the last Rudolf day before Christmas, so I have been busy making. These are all made with Digis from . Dora has been very busy drawing some gorgeous snowmen. They were all so cute I couldn't decide which one to choose and in the end I had two!
 I coloured them with Be Creative alcohol markers and added some glitter.
 The papers are all from my stash and all Dovecraft, I think, gathered over the years
You can find Dora's digis here, and all of them cost 2.5 Euros.
I'd like to say another huge thank you to Scrappy Mo for getting me organised making my Christmas cards again. It has been a pleasure seeing all the lovely inspiration and visiting fellow Rudolf day-ers too.
The challenge at Allsorts this week is 'Anything Christmas' so I am entering them there too.
Can I just say that I apologise if I don't get round to see you. It has taken me so long to add links to this post and find everything after the blogger shake up. I hate it! I'd quite like 5 minutes alone in a room with the 'bright spark' that thought it up... If it ain't broke why fix it? They seem to think blogging is only about posting and not about reading other peoples's blogs, and god forbid people wanting to link to another blog or trying to run several blogs. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! Rant over!
Thanks for looking!

One Day Special from Be Creative

 Be Creative are launching a great value lovely selection of stamps today on Hochanda.
 These are a few of the samples I have made using them. The first and third sample I stamped with Versafine ink and used zig clean color markers. The second sample was stamped with water-based momento
 This fourth sample was stamped in kaleidacolor ink and then spread with the new be creative water brush
 I love making frames with small stamps and this holly branch is perfect for it, as was the holly stamp I used on the first card.
 I also love making my own backgrounds using stamping and coordinating ink. The small present was perfect for this.
Do tune in and watch if you can at 8pm  - quick - pop the telly on now!!!

Mid month inspiration for Stamping Sensations

Our mid month posts at Stamping Sensations are to feature each DT members 'go to' stamp. My Go to stamp had to feature a tree, but which one?! After much thought I went for this treescape by Inkylicious.

 I have used it for Birthdays, Christmas, Father's day and sympathy cards. It is such a versatile stamp.

Thanks for looking!

Feature a Creature at Allsorts

The theme of Feature a Creature at Allsorts seemed like the perfect opportunity to share a card I made for my friend's son, who turned eighteen last month. I used Lavinia stamps, memento inks and inkylicious ink dusters. There is some fabulous inspiration from the Allsorts DT on their blog.
Short and sweet from me today as I have a mountain of things to do this weekend. I will try and visit blogland a bit more soon.
Thanks for looking!

November Challenge at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning! It is the first Sunday of the Month and time for a new Challenge over at Stamping Sensations! This month we have a nice and easy theme for you...............

********Christmas Greetings********

As the title suggests we want to see a Christmas Greetings on your creation, this can be the focal element or an added stamped sentiment.
My card was made with Inkylicious stamps, memento inks and ink dusters. The image is coloured with alcohol markers and the tartan paper is from Craftwork Cards.
Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork.Conventional rubber/acrylic stamps and digital images are acceptable, but pre-coloured digital images and toppers are not. And please note: if we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.

Stamp Addicts are our lovely sponsors this month and are offering a super £35 store voucher for our lucky winner. Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at all the fantastic creations by my lovely teamies. There is some wonderful inspiration for Christmas this month! Hope you get the chance to join in and I'll look forward to seeing all your lovely creations!  
Sorry I haven't been around in blog land much. It has been a bit of a crazy first week back to work. I can't see it slowing down in the run up to Christmas either! Thanks for looking!
