Midnight Madness and Instyle Stamps challenges

Managed to make a card yesterday while nursing my Swine Flu boys(the only perk, trust me!) This is the first time I have taken part in both of these challenges. The Midnight Madness challenge was a great sketch and the Instyle Stamps was to make a snow themed card.The image is Instyle Stamps, coloured with Promarkers and I added Stickles to her bodice and hat. The papers are Shabby Christmas from Funky Fairy. Swirls are punched with my EK Success swirl punch and the flower is from stash, loaded up with Stickles for added frostiness.

Also found time to make my first easel card last night for a friend's 40th birthday. The stamp is Instyle Stamps again, isn't she a cutie? Cardstock is Stampin' Up! Pretty In Pink and the papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet. The image was coloured with Promarkers

My lovely friend Hels has given me this award. I have to tell you 5 facts about me so here goes
1. I have green eyes
2. I was born in Glasgow
3. Got my wisdom teeth out in hospital(all 4) and they discharged me on Xmas Eve, looking like the Elephant Man. Had a boiled egg for Crimbo dinner that year.
4.I have lost 6lbs in the last 2 weeks and my trousers feel much better now lol!
5. I love the Twilight books and cannot wait to see New Moon.

I need to pass this on to 5 people so those lucky 5 are

thanks for popping by
