Silver angel

This is similar to the previous card - the background stamping is similar (details here), but this time I've used the Rubber stampede angel collage stamp. Once again, a difficult card to get a decent photo - the mat behind the angel stamp looks black, but it is actually silver mirror card.

This is for:

Another Santa card

If you're a regular visitor to my blog you might think you've seen this card before - yes, you've seen a similar one, but this is a new one. When a friend saw the other one (original one can be seen here) she commissioned me to make some more, hence this one today. There will also be one following with an angel stamp instead of Santa and I showed one yesterday that had a lovely reindeer stamp (it's on my CHNC challenge blog here).

Once again, I used a few Inkadinkado snowflake stamps randomly stamped with Brilliance starlite silver and heat embossed with detail silver powder. I used one of my favourite Christmas stamps, the Rubber stampede 'Santa collage', mounted on silver mirror card with a couple of gems and added a couple of Prima flowers with pearls.

Because the image is mounted on silver mirror card (not black as it looks here) it's a very difficult card to capture on camera - if I get a better daytime photo I'll change it. The snowflake swirls all look like they do at the top left hand corner.

Bubbly Funk forum last CJ

This last year's gone by so quickly - a year ago a new circle journal group was started on the Bubbly Funk forum and here I am showing my pages in the final one that will now be returned to its owner - and I'm looking forward to receiving my own CJ back.

Rebekah's journal is called 'You crack me up' - funny things that her child has said. Rebekah supplied lots of these on post it notes and we were able to choose one to work with. So I chose:

Is my ice-lolly in your big tummy mummy? I lost it. When Rebekah gets her journal back she'll be able to add all the quotes and perhaps some pictures as well.

I used BG cupcake papers, stitched ribbons and a strip of red gems from Poundland. I added some crystal ice stickles to the picture of the ice lolly.

I'm entering this into these challenges:

Pile it on 30: fun in the sun
Pollycraft 102: summer fun
Fairytale 20: summer, sun, sunshine
ECP 43: summer
Bunny Zoe 14: fun in the sun
Paper issues: life is sweet
Pixie cotage 79: fun with food
Cardmakin mamas 25: food and drink
CES 46: humour/funny
Gingerloft 22: make it sparkle
