LOTV Christmas penguins.

Hi everyone
I'm back with another Christmas card I managed to make on time!

This one was for my Mam and Stepdad:

I bought this cutie and the papers at the GNPE which meant that Mam had seen them both but I didn't really mind that. At least it showed her that I have used some of the mountain of stash that I brought home ha ha!

Close up to show how much glitter I managed to get on lol.
What I used:
Promarkers and Flexmarkers
WOC cherry blossom
Glamour Dust
Lawn Fawn Jessies ABCs for sentiment

I would like to enter my card into

Right well Ive just made a video of the wonderful craft goodies I received for Christmas so I'm off to try and upload it to Youtube and will post it later. I do love seeing what other people get at Christmas time  - the bf calls it being nosey - I call it research for what i need to put on my next shopping list ha ha !!

Hope you re all well - we saw some sun here today (shock of my life!) hope you have had some too.

Sweet Christmas cards and Lawn Fawn haul.

A late Merry Christmas to you all!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was spent with the family at my Aunts house who *quoting my 83 year old Gran* had been flapping about the turkey all morning he he he! We all ate far too much but had a wonderful day.
Well I just about managed to make enough Christmas cards! I got totally sick after the third one lol so I'm quite pleased to be seeing non-Christmas cards popping up in my blog reader :)
I thought I would share a few I made using my new Lawn Fawn stamps and have included a haul video I made of my Lawn Fawn splurge I had a few weeks ago.
This card was made using Lawn Fawn's Sweet Christmas set. I stamped each Gingerbread person and added the little details such as the bows, buttons and hearts etc. I then coloured them using PMs, cut them out and popped them on some foam pads. the sentiment is also from the set. I then decided some bling was needed and added tiny little gems to each Gingerbread person.
This took some doing lol as there is only one mini Gingerbread person in the set so it took some lining up. Again coloured with PMs. I added the button details to add interest and coated the sweets in stickles to make them look sugary.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - New (my new Lawn Fawn stamps).
This is my haul video of my Lawn Fawn stamps. I am obsessed with the sets that include characters with cute faces!! Lol.
So there you go. I have one more card Id like to share but Ill leave that for another day. Im off out to meet friends as we never get to see each other now we are all grown up with proper full time jobs lol!
I kinda went overboard with new stash buying so I might make another video to share all the goodies I have found!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the holidays and stay warm and dry where ever you are in the awful weather that is going on at the minute.

LIM - OLC In a row

The challenge over at Less is More this week totally inspired me which is really what I need right now! However I was inspired to make more baby cards rather than the Christmas cards I desperately need lol oh well!
I used the rattle and sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Plus One set and the heart from their Silly Valentine collection.
I had the idea to use a star on the boy card but I don't have any :( an excuse for more stamps me thinks!
I used the same layout and stamps for a girl version but coloured the heart in a darker pink as when I tried red it just didn't work.
I also used a stardust pen to colour the little white sections of the rattle and wish I hadn't oh well I'll learn from my mistakes!
Sorry the photos arent great it was very difficult with the light and so much white!
I would like to enter my card into
Right well only two weeks left at school with my Reception class than I will be unemployed as the maternity cover ends :( will defo miss the little monkeys!
Hope youre all well and staying safe and warm!
