Another Wild Rose Studio

Hello blogland! Hope all is well.We have had yet more snow today and it has been the coldest day at work I have ever known! Anyway Im in now thanks to the bfs Dad who picked us up - I wasnt gonna risk the bus after all the horror stories Iv heard all day of buses slidding all over the road - poor bus drivers !

Anyhoo this is a bit of a first for me - more than one post in a week lol!

For this Christmas card I have used Wild Rose Studio's Winter Lady.

I have used blue and purple promarkers, not exactly sure which ones! I bought some glittery white flock from the local craft shop and flocked her scarf and the top of her boots to make her look toasty warm lol.

I used my Pink Petticoat digi papers and some Wild Orchid Crafts roses that I have sparkled up with my Stickles.

I decided to use this image for a card for my Auntie as she was known to have been a bit of a shopaholic (at one time spending £250 on a NEXT rug then not letting anyone go anywhere near it!!!).

I would like to enter this card into:

Pretty in pink

Long time no post - sorry! Ive been busy with uni, had a mega GOLD Malawi presentation last week which didn't go very well (in my opinion) and I had the awful sickness bug for three days the week before that!

I have managed to create a few Christmas cards though. The first being this cutie

This is Winter Millie from Wild Rose Studio. This is the first time I have stamped and coloured her up with the PM's and I think she has turned out pretty good!

I followed Dawny P's sketch to join in with Wild Rose Studios First Christmas blog hop. I used Little Fleurs Pink Pinstripe and Dotty Snowflakes from my fav at the mo Pink Petticoat.

I also used some pink roses from Wild Orchid Crafts that I glittered up with the old Stickles and used some gems from my stash and a printed message as I am yet to find a stamp that says 'Gran'.

Hope you like it!
I'm off to do more work lol and will be back with another card soon

WOYWW once again

Today is the day to upload another picture of my little craft space and play along with all you lovely people in blogland at Julia's Stamping Ground.
A very very quick post today as I'm off out to give my first GOLD Malawi presentation at the Division AGM. I'm gonna use it as a bit of a practice as I have been asked to do a HUGE presentation at the County Annual Review! Scary or what! The only good thing is I know I cant get anything wrong as I was the only one who went to Malawi lol! And Iv had two presentations at Uni this week so have had a bit of practice.

So a little bit busier than last week. Iv been trying to use my LOTV bear stamp to do the Distress Ink watercolour technique thing that everyone seems to be doing but alas I have not cracked it yet! I also got my TGF Cheeky Mate stamp out hoping to use but I haven't had the time yet.
Also sorry for the dark photo - by the time I got in from Uni it was dark already and my living room light is naff.
Here's a little picture of Milton who I made last week and was telling you about.

For once I am really pleased with this card from the colouring in with the PMs to the layout and the background paper! No too sure about that glitter stuff tho hmmmm

   I used my LOTV Christmas sentiment stamp again and added a little gem on the dot for the 'i'.

I would like to enter Milton into
