Sunday night quick post

I'm so sorry I haven't been posting much over the last couple of weeks... my get up and go has got up and gone... and taking my crafty mojo with it for company... I'm hoping both come back soon.

I could blame spending most of last week on my own with the kids (HB away on business), or my work, but I just think it's just the time of year when there is so much going on and it's difficult to keep up

I have managed a couple of cards though, nothing overly inspiring but I thought I'd share them nevertheless :-)

The first one is a variation on the bronze one I did the other day - I really liked the design and wanted to try it in different colours, and also I aquired a silver promarker (shhh, don't tell anyone about that... I'm a copic girl!).  It's OK but I have got so used to the copics I don't think I'd swap, and maybe it's because it's a metallic but I don't think it blended as well as the copics.

I think I did OK with the colouring??

Supplies: Image - LOTV; Sentiment - Creative Impressions; White Bazzill, Silver Mirri; Silver Ribbon; Tree Charm; Cricut; Scalloped Circle Punch; Copics & Silver Promarker; Glamour Dust; Diamond Dust; Glossy Accents

The second card is another simple design - I'm afraid all my Christmas cards are going to be simple this year, and time is running out to the point that I think some people are going to get a bought one - still it can't be helped... I refuse to get all worked over a piece of card... there's only so much I can do in one day!!

I just love the rich colour of this ribbon!!

Supplies - White and Green Bazzill; Papers - Adornit??; Gems; Green Brad; Cricut; Charm; Ribbon; Image - Letter to Santa Ruby, Ladybug Crafts Ink
