Nearly Done

Have just about finished my Christmas cards for this year. All ready to post or deliver so should beat the rush at the post office. These two I did today for two old friends as I wont be able to catch up before Christmas. Used an image from the Penny Black stamp set  the Wonder . They are just so cute and seem to be getting plenty of use this Christmas. The first one was made using scraps so I have no idea of the name of the PP and coloured with copics. The border punch is Stamping up and sentiment was a present last year from my stamping group (ACTSA).

The same image was used for the second card, just used different colours, and stuck fairly close with the same basic sketch. The PP for this was a freebie from Australian Simply Cards a couple of years ago. Coloured with copics to match the paper.

Back at Last.

I cannot believe I have not posted since April. Where has the year gone. I Really have no excuse, just seems there is never enough time to do the things you plan and family and trips away take over. Not that I am complaining as we had the most fab trip to Canada and Alaska. Also managed some time in LA doing the tourist things. Not much crafting but have a couple of Christmas cards and an ATC.The cards are for my DD's and I think I need some more time using my copics as it took for ever. Both cards and ATC use Penny Black stamps.

This is such a gorgeous stamp and I tried getting some movement in the dress. Pretty happy how it turned out. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink
