My first candy winner!

Merry Christmas everybody!!!
We had a lovely day today. Finished wrapping presents, went to the church, had a great dinner, opened one present each.

Tomorrow morning kids will come down and open all those presents that are under the tree. Hopefully it won't take longer than couple of hours LOL.

But I bet you all want to know who is the winner of my first candy!
The winner is number 26- Annelies ( Sorry I have no idea how to post the random integer generator here, but hopefully will figure that one out by the time I have my next candy up for grabs teehee.
Please post your address in the comments and I will send you your goodies.

Our Christmas tree

I decided to put up out Christmas tree earlier this year. And I didn't want to use our regular Christmas decoration, and decided to go blue and silver. Well they didn't have any silver ornaments in the store, but they had gold shatter proof stuff, so we ended up with blue and gold colours this year. Shatter proof because of the kids. Karissa grabs the ornaments off the tree and throws them around (they do bounce and it's really funny LOL)

Magnolia-licious November Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Hello everybody! Welcome to Magnolia-licoius Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop.
I created this Christmas card using Magnolia stamp of course, and CTMH papers. I coloured my image with Copics, added some stickles and lace. You can get Magnolia stamps at Magnolia-licous store at awesome prices!

You came from Lori King's blog and now off we go to Monique's blog to continue with our blog hop. Hope you enjoy all the Christmas cards.

Asian Tilda

OK so I absolutely love making all these cards. Today I used Asian Tilda which I really like. Sometimes I have a hard time choosing colours for my images, and it happened here too, I ended up choosing these colours and tried colouring her hair in BLACK, which I find actually quite difficult.

dress: BG13, BG11, BG10, W5, W3, W1, RV34, RV10, RV000

Pirate cards

Hello everybody.
Here are two cards I finished last night. Both are "pirate" cards. I really like using warm muted colours on my projects, and love distressing the paper as much as I can. I used Copics to colour the images, Karen Foster charms, Glitz letter stickers, Sassafrass Lass papers, Bazzill cardstock, and few chipboard shapes I think they were Riff Raff chipboard shapes.

I am entering Edwin for "Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge" challenge. He was somewhat inspired by their sketch.

I had fun colouring Tilda here, and I am entering her for Bunny Zoe's craft challenge.

Another card!

Here is a card I just made last night. I found few challenge blogs yesterday and felt like I had to make this card. I think those challenge blogs might be a great thing!!! LOL
I am entering this card in few challenges:
The ABC challenge B is for blue, the card had to be at least 80 % blue, I think it is, hope they think so too.
7 kids college fund strip it down, we can only use 2 layers of patterned paper, Tilda is 'sitting' on 2 layers of cardstock mat, embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder
