Back again...

...with another card as promised. I have spent a lovely day with my eldest son Liam, while Logan is at his cousins for a sleepover. We haven't done much, as the weather has been cold and wet, so we watched a couple of movies and made our own marshmallows but it's just been nice to spend some quality time just the two of us!! He has just loved it as have I! We don't get to do it very often so we enjoy it when we do!!!
Not sure if i mentioned in my last post but I spend at least once or twice a week just colouring images so they are ready to be used to make a card! I bought this stamp from Kellie Winnell (from Tickled Pink Stamps) who was selling some of her used stamps to make way for more new one's..LOL!! I thought she was so cute and just had to have her!!

This is the second one I coloured as I wasn't sure what papers I was going to use with the first one but then thought I'd use my Kaisercraft papers I bought a stack of last year!!. So I picked some colours out of the papers then coloured Tilda in using my Tria markers. The rest of the card is made with the Kaisercraft papers!! I cut out an extra set of the xmas trees and stuck them on foam dots of varying heights, added some decorations at the top, added kindyglitz for a bit of sparkle and to finish it off added the Papertrey Ink sentiment and a few rhinestones.

I showed my sister this card and she has asked me to make another couple of these for the teachers at the end of the year!! Always makes my day when someone likes my cards!!
