Card for Andreas

My December exchange card was made for Andreas, who is Sonni's husband.
This pattern by Ann's Paper Art is fantastic for those cards where you don't want to do much stitching.
The pattern number is a354.
The threads are Mettler Polysheen 0453 and 1123.
I decided to pick a image from one of the Art pads called 
"Vintage Boys" by Lili of the Valley as all men love to hold the remote!!
I love these pads as they are already coloured, 
I don't call it cheating.......lol......
I distressed around the edge with antique linen.
The base card is die cut with Spellbinder Grand Scollop Squares  LF-127.
I also used the inserts of the Nellie Snellen mfd033 to make the brown bits in the scallops.
The "Across the miles"stamp is also from Lili of the Valley
I have also used  ribbon and hobbydots.

I enjoyed creating this very special card and I am so pleased with the way that it all come together.
I hope that you like it also.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.

Christmas card

It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner.
This month I will be showing you some of the Christmas cards that I have made for 2013.
This pattern is an older one yet a beautiful one, it is from Ann's Paper Art Hobbydol 21, pattern #528.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 0824,1902,5933.
The poinsettia was created using the Poinsettia Heartfelt stamps HCPC3415 and the Layered  Poinsettia die
by Spellbinder S5-005.
The background die is Spellbinder, Delicate Doilies S5-205.
I created the leaves with Joy "Billies Flourishes" 6002/0263.
The stickers are  Doodey Star Ornament  #7088.

I really enjoyed creating this card and love the idea of the stamps and dies being used together.
I hope that you also like the card.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.
