Fantastic new download from Louise!!

Louise Brigden has done it again! She has just finished her brand new collection of Downloads only Available at Charmed Cards and Crafts,click the dottie Blinkie.
Her new collection is very chic and stylish,it is called 'Girl About Town' they are different ladies,one of them named Nicola and they are having coffees and shopping and it also includes coloured images and there are a separate download with the fantastic backgrounds aswell as sentiments.Checkout Charmed for the complete list of what you get,great value for money!!! For this card which is a big a4 card, i used Karen black and white images and added colour using Watercolour pencils, i cut around her so it shows the inside of the card. I printed the sentiment very large for the front too.

Then for the inside i used the pre-coloured images of the shop fronts and the black and white image of 'Sarah' again adding colour using watercolour pencils on her,the sign is from the Karen image.
Go have a look, the download collection is wonderful!! Welldone Louise!!

Sunday Challenge...Tags

Over on Dottie World its Louise's turn and she has picked a supposedly easy Challenge,.......Well it would be if my mojo hadnt been on the Christmas Cheer and gone off A.W.O.L!!!
I cut out two circles and cut an aperture in the centre of one, added acetate to make a window which i added snow writer too. The front swivels open to show the circle underneath which i put an image from the 'Christmas bundle' check out the blinkie, i intentionally left the insde bare so the greeting message can be written round the edge.
As i love to keep tags from special people and hang them on the Christmas tree!

Well i cnat believe that is is nearly 2009 already!
Little did i know what would be in the future when i lit my candle and made my 'Millenium Wish' all those years ago, only seems like last year! This is a large card, i blew some numbers up on the pc using WordArt on Word,i printed & cut them out,then used these as a template for my silver card to cut out. I ran the numbers through my Big shot using a Swirl Cuttlebug folder,mounted onto the Colossal Christmas Paper and added the 'Animal Antics' images available at Charmed cards,click the Dottie blinkie.
If you dont pop back to my blog before 2009 I wish you a very Happy and Healthy Christmas and New Year.xx
