A couple of cute Eskimos!

Evening all.

Sorry for the later post, I did try this morning but my laptop wasn't playing ball! I have had the most wonderful afternoon at another one of Jules' SU workshops. Today's class was called christmas rush and we made 8 quick christmas cards, 15 minutes for each card. It was so much fun, although my mum was getting herself into a bit of a flap everytime Jules' son called out the time left! Lol! I don't have any pics yet but promise I will get some hopefully tomorrow {weather and light permitting!}and upload them for you all to see!

Onto today's cards. I have two to show you, both using the same stamp, but slight variations on the design. A couple of really quick and easy cards, those that you can make for the masses! Lol!

I just love this cute Eskimo stamp from Elzybells. I got him last year and he is delight to work with, so easy to colour and just as versatile for boys or girls cards, just swap the colour scemes!


Image: Juggling Eskimo from Elzybells. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: DCWV Christmas Stack 2007


Sentiment: Both from Elzybells

Tools: Nesties, SU stamp-a-ma-jig {to get the sentiment straight!}

Misc: snowflake stamp used to create background was free with craft stamper magazine, adhesive pearls {as buttons} from papermania

A couple of real quick cuties!

I know this is a bit of a long post today but I thought I would leave you with a couple of quick pics from my graduation on wednesday. The weather was really rubbish, it rained all day, so I only managed to get a couple of decent pics!

I like this pic as I am not looking directly at the camera, I always think these shots of me are better as I am rubbish at trying to smile for the camera .I am not at all photogenic !

Me with my OH {Sorry I don't know how to rotate the pic!}. When I came out with my gown on he said he felt so proud of me, bless!

And finally me with my mum & dad. This is the second time they have been to one of my graduations {I am trying for a hat trick, Lol!} but I think they were still just as proud of me this time around as they were first time 9 years ago!

Thanks for sticking with me through my mammoth post tonight. I hope you all enjoy your saturday evening. I'm just off to start tea and then I'll be settling down for a night of strictly and x-factor {my OH doesn't know what's instore for him yet, Lol!}

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
