Merry Christmas from Leanne Ellis!

Morning all! It's friday at last That means I can have a lie in tomorow and have some crafty time as my OH is at work. I haven't been in my carft room since last weekend as I am trying to spend a bit more quality time with my OH after work. I don't know if anyone else experiences these problems but he can get a bit miffed if I choose to spend time in my craft room rather than with him! So I am making a bit more of an effort. Roll on tomorrow though! Lol!

Well today's card I have to show you was made with another of the fabulous christmas releases over at Funky Kits from Sugar Nellie. Today I have used one of Leanne Ellis's Images. I have always been a huge fan of Leanne Ellis and I have lots of her older designs. This image as so easy to colour in and gives such a crisp image. She is so adorable don't you think?!

I managed to make this card withoutn using any DP. The pattern you can see was created with my new SU jumbo stampin around wheel stamp which I ordered from my SU mom Jules. Jules has just got back from the stampin up convention in germany where she was rewarded for her talents with many many prizes. Congratulations Jules, you deserve it (nad get well soon hun)!


Image: Annie with present from Leanne Ellis by Sugar Nellie. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor and whspers pens

CS: from stash

Sentiment: craftwork cards

Tools: real red SU ink pad, 'sparkling' SU jumbo stampin around wheel, SU scallpoed border punch, cropodile to create to holes in the scallops

Misc: red and white adhesive pearls from papermania, glitter for her hat and tag

Well I just loved using this stampin around wheel and it gives such a fab effect. I think I may have to collect a few more of these (they are already on my wish list) Lol!

Well thanks for stopping by today and for any comments you may leave. I really appreciate all the support and kind words you have given me over the past 18 months! It's lovely to have so many blogging friends!

Have a great weekend everyone, whatever you're up to!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Wonderful card Vicky as always!

I like the way you have used pencils & pens to colour your image. I am gonna get out my watercolour pencils again, I've got in a bit of a Promaker rut latley!

I know exactly what you mean about sharing your time with your other half. Me & Hubby decided that I craft and he plays on computer goes to the gym til 9.30. After this we sit down together!!!

Seems to work well now ;)

Good luck

I hear you Vicky - my Hubby is quite strict about when I can & can't blog - it's sooooo annoying (but sweet cause he wants to spend time with me so can't complain lol)

Gorgeous card - I love those new designs :)

Have a great weekend
Love Steph xxx

Vicky what a fab card, the wheel looks really fab, but I am biased I suppose! Thanks for your kind words about me and for your never ending support. It is customers like you who helped me achieve my goals. Get them on the WIsh list and send it back to me so you can get lots of SU pressies and dont forget their is a £50 SU hamper up for grabs! See you really soon, JUles x

she is gorgeous Vicky, very sweet and I love the colours, very striking! enjoy your craft time tomorrow, I too have to strike a balance between crafting and family life, I do try to put them first and only craft while the kids are at school but occasionally sneak in at night before DH gets home! have a great weekend, hugs Debx

This is stunning Vicky, I love that new image!
Yes I can identify with what you're saying re spending time with the other half...... mine goes bonkers with me all the time but I still keep coming back for more!!!
G was okay today at the opticians but she had real trouble mastering the art of taking the lenses out.... practice makes perfect I guess!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and remember not to neglect your poor old other half, LOL!

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
