In The Pink

Hi everyone,
 
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog. You are all so very kind and I know I am very naughty, not posting for a while! What with organising a Craft Fair, also selling at them and trying to keep up with card orders, I haven't had a spare minute. I have managed to keep up with commenting on the blogs I follow but only doing it about 1am! I have to admit, I am absolutely knackered!
 
The dust in my house is awful, so the weekend is going to be spent cleaning. Yuk!
 
This Nativity stamp from  Lili of the Valley, is definitely one of my favourite Christmas stamps this year. This is one of my 'stock' cards. Nearly a CAS card but just not too much in the way of embellies, to keep within the lowest postal rate.
 
 
The background paper is from my stash, that I made with my Granddaughter, using the shaving foam technique. It's great fun and you never know what pattern you are going to get.
 
The gorgeous little angels are coloured with Distress Inks, with Cosmic Shimmer glitter on their wings and halo's.
 
 
I also needed a new baby girl card for stock. I just love this LOTV Umbrella Bunny. I coloured her with Copics pens. The sentiment is also a LOTV stamp that comes with the baby stamp, All Our Dreams.
 
 
Again I have not added too many embellies for the postal costs.
 
 
I am going to enter the Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge, Pink and White.
 
Next year I intend to enter more challenges. I love looking at them but can't seem to find the time to fiddle around on the computer. More me time, is my New Year resolution.
 
Thanks for stopping by. I just love reading your messages.
 
Have a great weekend.
 
Hugs,
 
Carol S.xx

Two very beautiful cards Carol. I love the nativity stamp, it's so cute but still with a traditional theme. And the bunny is just perfect!

I prefer a cleaner layout anyway, so these are both very much ideal in my opinion.

Big hugs

A really sweet Christmas card. And your umbrella bunny card is just too gorgeous. The shape of the topper fits the image perfectly.

Good old LOTV - they always give you the 'Aahhh' factor. I love both your cards - the soft colouring is gorgeous.
