Challenge Card

I have used the sketch from oh-la-la challenge.
It lacks something?!?!?!?

Red hammer cardstock, paper from HOTP matted on red card
Inkadinkado stamp coloured with prisma pencils and blended with sanador
gems and flowers from stash

I struggle to tear paper,
so in an effort to distress the card which I felt being an old santa suited the theme,
I have used a metal ruler on the edges and inked with black. Perhaps this is why it
didn't work? Or, is it the gems? They were a required element, but I'm not sure. Ikki

Card for a friend

This is a thank you card for a kind friend. It is also only my second Tilda, I know I have a lot to learn with this style of crafting, but I'll keep having a go! Ikki
Papers frm Addison K-ology, Tilda image coloured with prisma pencils.

In the mood

I'm getting into Christmas mood and my room is covered ( sofa, two desks and floor, not to mention window sills ) with so much stuff that I can hardly move. I'm having to tread very carefully. Still at least I'm crafting again!

Love Holiday Magic

This card was for the DC Red Tilda challenge - she is not completely to the instructions, I shall have to start reading things twice, perhaps even three times would be better and then I might save myself some time. Still she is ON the red if not in it!. Can't get it right always can you!?!?!?! I used the CB winter house folder and embossed twice, the edging lines on the folder difficult to use in any other than a straight forward emboss, I have just about got away with it, but it took a long time.

I made this card for the weekly DC challege - it is the first thing!?!?! (not sure that I like it) I have made in ages, but at least I've made a start. I'm struggling with my 'mojo' (I think this is the correct terminology for having lost my drive). I'm hoping my trip to the States and the purchase of a few (my hubby would say a lot) new goodies will give me the get up and go. If not, I shall have a busy time on ebay! Here's hoping this is not the last. Ikki
