Lili of the Valley- Winter Walk

Hi everyone!
Hope you're all well. Any more Christmas cards made?
I have another to share with you along the same lines as the one I made here. This time I used the very sweet Winter Walk to make a Christmas card for my hubby...

Winter Walk is coloured with copics and I used my Kirarina Wink pen to add snow to them. Papers are by Bo Bunny (my most used pad this season). This absolutely gorgeous tree frame is by Memory Box. The snowy hills were made using a PTI die and the cut out stars for the background was made using the Starburst Cover plate by Mama Elephant. Sentiment of course is LOTV from their Christmas Tags Sentiment set. I added some white pen to the background as well.

Here's a close up.

Aren't they just the cutest couple?!
Thanks for stopping by today x

Bellarific Friday- Woodsies Merry Everything!

Hey peeps!
Can you believe it's the end of November already- where has the year gone?!

This week's Bellarific Friday was HOLIDAY WISHES so hopefully that has helped you get going with your Christmas cards! 

I used the super cute Woodsies Merry Everything...

I decided to make a mini card using Kraft cardstock. I thought because the image had a lot of black and white on it that colouring on Kraft would make an effective card. I didn't use any blending tools- just let the pencils do their thing. I added some white pen for the snow just to give a bit of contrast and make it more visible.

Here's your close up.
Hopefully you can see the subtle mix of white, blues and lilacs on the snow.

 Next week's challenge is FREE FORM so go with what you like! 

As it's the first Friday of December, the DT will be using Em's STAMP OF THE MONTH which will be a crazy 20% off for the WHOLE month!

Bellarific Friday- Nice To See You, Petunia!

Well hello there!
Bellarific Friday's challenge this week was a sketch (see below). 
How did you roll?

I decided to use the wonderfully cute and funny Woodsie Nice To See You, Petunia...

Petunia was coloured with copics using my usual pinky/yellowy/green/purply combo. Glossy accents applied to all the specs (of course)! These papers are so gorgeous by MME- love the shine on them.  Sentiment comes with- just love the funny sentiments Em always comes up with!
Finally I added some hearts and mini arrows for interest.

Here's your close up. 
Just LOVE the little chickies in their specs!

Bellarific Friday- Mo Manning Season's Greetings tag!

Okerly pokerly! Hope you're all well and enjoying some crafty time!
This week's Bellarific Friday theme was to make a tag. 

I don't make a lot of tags I must admit so I decided to go full out and make a 3d shaker tag using Mo Manning's Season's Greetings...

This sweet lil thing was coloured with copics and I paper pieced her dress. The giant tag was made using Mama Elephant dies and I stamped the accompanying sentiment on a further tag and attached using ribbon and twine. I added some white pen for snow in various places across the image. Finally, I used some faux snow glitter plus sequins for the shaker elements. Brrrrr....

Here's your close up.
Have I told you just HOW much I love this Mo image?!
Such a gorgeous fairy-tale book feel to it!

Here is your sketch for next week. 
Don't forget to send your entry to Em by Thursday for the chance to win Bella bucks. Your full details are here.
