I just wanted to share some fab news with you. Recently I was contacted by the Scrapbook Magazine to say that I was one of nine runners up in their Scrapbooker of the Year competition...I'm chuffed to bits and apparently have £180 of goodies winging their way to me - through the snow and postal hold ups - as we speak.
I don't usually show my scrapbook work on my blog but over the coming days hope to share some with you and would love to know what you think.
Anyway...my winnings this year have made me over the moon and just goes to show that you have to be in it to win it!
Thanks for stopping by.
I love the Clarity stamps and all the fabulous effects that designer Barbara Gray can achieve with her brayer and 'Big and Juicy' inkpads but sometimes - when quick and simple are called for, these stamps can be equally effective stamped and embossed in gold and layered onto your card with a mat of gold background paper. i love these little 5x5' cards and their wintry sentiment from the fab poem - 'Twas the Night before Christmas'. Why not have a go yourself - I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.
Best Boxing Day Wishes
This card was made using the Poinsettia template from Papermania, scraps of Christmas paper and ribbon layered upon on a background made using the snowflake embossing folder and my cuttlebug - a great way to use up those oddments of Christmas papers from other projects!

I'm not always a lover of Peel Offs but must admit I really like the black silouette type. I created this card with a simple inked background and mat and layered the image on black and silver mirri card - quite effective...what do you think?
Bye for now
Hi All! Well, I hope you're all safe and sound out there and not too cut off in this snowy weather! Just a quick post to show you some more quick cards created from just some of the gorgous backing papers that have been available to us this year! My Rudolph specials!
Best wishes Karen x

I don't know about you but I always seem to need a lot of quick cards at Christmas for neighbours and people you don't see that often but like to keep in touch with. A friend and I knocked out a pile of 'quickies' using a Martha Stewart punch for a a backround mat and punched snowflakes and gems for embellishments. I hope to enter these cards in the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge which this week is Christmas cards and the ABC Challenge which is for Jewels and Gems.
