Merry Christmas

This is a Christmas card using a free downloadable decoupage image from the Funky Fairy.


I used paper designed by Vanessa Arbuthnott for The English Paper Company, as the background. All I added was a touch of stardust from a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

It's cold outside

The challenge theme on Funky Fairy is a Black & White Christmas.


For Funky Fairy challenges you have to use their own products, so I downloaded a wonderful image from their Inspiration Blog. I have only added a touch of Diamond Stickles & some black ink.

The penguin is decoupaged with six layers, all shaped with an embossing tool & adhered with silicone glue.

Shabby House

The challenge on Creative Wednesday is to make a house shaped project.


The background paper is from the Shabby Princess Damask & Dots range.

I added a section from an old lace doily, aged with Distress Inks (walnut stain & antique linen).


The image is from art-e-zine

There is an open theme on Dans ma maison ... this week, so this is my entry for that also.

This is also my entry for My Time to Craft, which has a theme of Coffee & Cream.

Guy Fawkes Night

Here in the UK we celebrate November 5th with fireworks, bonfires, toffee apples & baked potatoes in remembrance of the failure to blow up the Houses of Parliament back in 1605 in the infamous Gunpowder Plot.

So, with this in mind, Fiona on Inchy by Inch has set this as the theme for this week's inchie challenge.


I have stamped a Magenta rubber stamp on black card, using clear VersaMark ink, then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

The inchie was edged with a Krylon 18ct gold leafing pen, then a few drops of gold Stickles were added to the fireworks.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I see no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!


Be safe this Bonfire Night xx
