Christmas fun

Good Morning,
The weather here is dismal – wet and dark, but at least the wind has dropped.
Today I would like to share a card I have made for my nephew. He is a grown man but only 21 so it’s difficult to decide what to do for his cards now.

The image is from Kenny K digital stamps here and is coloured with Promarkers.
The snowflakes were cut using Marianne dies
I really can’t remember where the papers are from. 
The sentiment was made on my computer.
The gems are from my stash

Christmas decoration

Good morning,
Today we have a new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always we're Anything Goes with an optional twist and since November 13th is Random Acts of Kindness Day our twist is to create a RAK for someone.  And there's actually a Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.  Check it out!

It’s my turn to make an Anything Goes project and here it it….

The gorgeous, gorgeous image is Noelle Holiday Hat by Rick St Dennis- here. Oh how I loved colouring her with my Promarkers. She will be used over and over!

The template for the bow card can be found at Sandra’s Scrap Shop - here.
Thanks to the inspiration from Chantal I used it to make a Christmas decoration for my best friend – which I suppose could be classed as a random act of kindness.

The papers are from Michelle Roos Christmas time set – here
The snowflakes were cut using two different Joy snowflake dies.
The pine branches were made using a memory box die.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
