More Christmas!

Brace yourself! There are 5 Christmas cards in this post! All of them use a Penny Black stamp which I've coloured with Aquamarkers and used papers either from Funky Hand - Blue Christmas download or from Mad About Cards (vintage type papers) all of which I've had for a few years.

I've used table confetti for the stars and snowflakes plus various ribbons from my stash, which again I've had for a number of years!

I've either used a blue gel pen to dot around the edge of the image and card or a silver or gold 3d Anita's paint (found that lurking in the back of a drawer!) Each challenge specific to a card are listed directly under the card.

    Thanks for joining us this week over at ABC Christmas Challenge for our 'Shaped Card with Spots, Stripes or Swirls' Challenge :)

    Little tip ref Blogger...resave your picture rotated at 90' and then when Blogger thinks it's got one up on you and is posting your picture on it's side it will actually be the right way round!!!!! For some reason - yet to be discovered - SOME of my pictures always want to post this way!

  14. Every one of these is marvelous, Ruth! Great sketches you picked for each one. Of course, I really love the one from Eat, Sleep, Stamp since that's one of my "go to" places for sketches, and I think you did such a fab job with it!

  15. Wow so many adorable cards!!! I love them all. But I have to say my favorite is definitely the one using my sketch. LOL!! Cute! Cute! Cute! Thank you so much for playing along with Sketchy Thursday!
    Hugs, Tracy

  16. Fab set of cards. These PB stamps have already been on my wish list for some time.
    Tip: I always rotate my images to the right position in Windows Explorer before uploading them. Use the thumbnail view, then right-click on the image and select Rotate right/left (at least I'm assuming that's what it is called, since I'm using the Dutch version myself).

  17. Just so gorgeous hun...

    thanks for joining us at Divas...and good luck...!
