Something Else on Saturday #43 Featuring Merry Wishes from My Favorite Things

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. Yes again I am sharing another Christmas card with you - I did actually give this one to my close friend Michele, who loved it! I love this set and hope to get a few more stamps from Stacy Yacula - just a shame you can't buy the ones from Purple Onion over here in the UK at the minute.

Anyway here it is....a DL sized card, which I kept to just the image. I used my Distress Ink Oxides for the sky and then added some snow drifts along the bottom before fussy cutting all the stamped and coloured images and adding them to the scene.

Something Else on Saturday #42 Featuring Fuzzy Hugs from Mama Elephant

Good morning and welcome to another of my Something Else on Saturday posts. This week again I am playing catch up on some of the Christmas cards I made but didn't get time to blog. I love this set from Mama Elephant - the hugging animals are just so darn cute!

Warm Holiday Hugs

Good morning and welcome to my post for today. Not my usual day for sharing random cards, but I am trying to catch up still on some of the Christmas cards I have been making recently, both before and after the event! I have so many cute images that I have stamped and printed out that I didn't get round to making in time, so I am carrying on now to build my card pile up ready for next year!

Today I am sharing this cute image from Di's Digi Stamps - Three Chilly Foxes. They are just so adorable and I decided to put them in a wintery forest scene. I can never decide what colour to use on foxes - I don't think they should be orange as foxes are more of a reddy-orangey-brown colour, but I think this combo is a bit too red, but it still kind of works. Next time I'll try more of an orangey combo!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post

Good morning everyone! It's back to the old grindstone for me today, but at least it's just a training day so I have to listen to lots of talks in the morning followed by a couple of meetings in the afternoon and then some classroom set up time to get everything ready for when the children come back in tomorrow!

I'm still in Christmas card making mode as I had so many ideas in my head for cards and projects to make but just didn't get enough time to make them all, so I may well be making some more for a few weeks to come!

This gorgeous girl is Zahra Xmas Sweater, who is one of the Faery Ink Facebook Group freebie images which you can find here.


You can read more about her on my post over at theFaery Ink blog. See you there!

Something Else on Saturday #41 Featuring Snow Day from Lawn Fawn

Happy Saturday everyone! The last Saturday of my Christmas holidays before I head back to work on Monday. I love being a teacher at this time of year because I do get a really good break over Christmas and New Year.

I remember doing factory work years ago - it was freezing cold as the doors were always open as the pallets were always coming in and out, we had to work long hours on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and then only had Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day off as they are Bank Holidays. So grateful I get time to relax, recuperate and catch up with friends and family during my holidays now.

Anyway on to today cards...I have two to share with you as they both use the same stamp set. I made these before Christmas but never got round to blogging them, so I'm catching up a bit here.

This first one is a green combo and the second is more red, but I love how both turned out. Cute and quick to make as well.

Scrapper's Delights January 2020 Aquarius Chibi VIP New Release

Good evening everyone and welcome to the first new releases from Scrapper's Delights for 2020! I hope you all had a great holiday and Happy New Year! Mine was fairly relaxed and I'll be heading back to work on Monday after 2 1/2 weeks off, which I will find painful for the first few days! Getting up at 6am after having no alarm for the holidays is  going to kill me!

Anyway on to my card for this month's new release...I used the gorgeous Aquarius image and added a couple of the elements that come with this stamp set. I felt a bit strange doing a summer themed image after making all my Christmas and Winter cards (that I am still doing while I'm in the mood to get a stash built up ready for next year!)
