Crafters Companion Challenge 16 - Christmas Wishes

I've never entered any blog competitions before but this month I am going to take the plunge and enter the Crafters Companion Christmas Wishes competion. 

I've decided to enter one of my Snowmen cards (below).  I love the Snowman and used my Speccies for colouring in the stamped image and this was one of my first attempt with the pens!!!

Happy Crafting.  Sarahxxxxxx

Humphrey's Corner

I have been away for the past couple of weeks in Lanzarote enjoying hot, sunny weather.  I may have had a break from cardmaking but I took my cross stitching with me and had many wonderful comments from people as I was stitching by the pool! Now I'm back and finding it a bit cold!!! I was so excited when I found out that Humphrey was being launched with a Christmas CD ROM and stamps this week.  I've ordered them and will be stalking the poor postman until he arrives with my parcel!!

Whilst on holiday I had a text from a lady I make cards for and she wanted one for her nephew's first birthday.  I immediately thought that Humphrey would be perfect.  So out came the Everyday Humphrey decoupage I received shortly before I went away.  I love the die cut decoupage.  The pieces came out of the sheet so easily and the picture is so effective with so many layers.  I used a backing paper and insert from the Humphrey CD and made an envelobox to accompany it. 

The lady I made the card for was absolutely thrilled with the card.  She had never seen Humphrey before but fell in love with him.  I was telling her how popular he had become and she was just one of many fans!!!  She was so thrilled with the card she has commissioned me to make two more cards!! So that will keep me busy! 

Happy Crafting.  Sarahxxxxxx
