Help I'm buried under a pile of Christmas cards!

And this silly computer just went an published a blank post - arrrgghh!

Anyway, now those hicups are over - hello blogworld.

So how is everyone?  All well and hopefully to my Scottish bloggy friends keeping safe in this dreadful wind.  We've had a windy afternoon, but nothing compared to what I've been watching on telly!

Right not much has happened since last time I was here, so I'm going to get on with posting my cards and then I'm going to go catch up on my commenting.  So this will probably be the shortest post ever from me!

My cards I'm entering into the Totally Gorjuss challenge, which is a sketch and I liked it so much I made two cards from the same sketch.

Here they are:

Card 1:

and close up of image to try and show the wonderful glittery wings:

For this one I used:

Saturated Canary image: Christmas Angel; coloured with my Promarkers - die-cut with a Go-Kreate die and chalked while still in the die for definition.  For once it's not Stickles glitter glue - but Stickles Ice, much bigger chunks of glitter for that wow factor.
The patterned paper was free with a mag, the green paper from a Papermania paper stack.
The border is a CC Designs die - Teardrop.
Ribbon, flowers and brad are from my stuff
I made the card blank and a Craftwork Cards sentiment die-cut

Card number two:

 Detail shot again for glittery effect:

And I used:

Saturated Canary image: Molly the Elf; coloured with my Promarkers - die-cut with a Go-Kreate die and chalked while still in the die for definition.  Stickles Ice glitter glue.
The patterned paper was free with a mag, going to have to go and check where I got the other papers from.
The border is a die as well, and I can't remember whose it is at the mo, I will check that when I check the papers.
Ribbon and star are from my stuff
I made the card blank and a Craftwork Cards sentiment die-cut.

So hope all is going well for you and I'm off now to catch up with everyone!

I had a bit of a productions line going this evening with my Christmas cards. I resorted to cheating and broke out the cricut and a Christmas cartridge.
