Frankly I haven't made a single one -that is if you don't count the demonstration cards and the cards made for classes, and the cards for other people [orders] etc., but made for me.........nah, not a one!
However, couldn't resist this little chappie, another new stamp from the Mabel Lucie Attwell range from The Artistic Stamper
I cut out the circle in the white card, and used Acetate, then glued the stamped and coloured image on top - stamped and coloured and decoupaged the holly - which I just love! on top... and fixed the whole thing to the card front with 3mm foam pads. The patterns were made using Zig Calligraphy Pens and I coloured the image in with the Calligraphy pens and a Water Brush - Simple!...... The piccy does not do the card justice, at least I don't think so... but then I could be biased. OK, hope you like, off to make so chrissy cards for me now............... Happy Crafting xx

Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps from Artistic Stamper are just gorgeous! I used Zig Calligraphy colour blending pens to paint with........ yep! just put a little colour onto a tile or a piece of acetate/plastic or whatever, and use as paint with a water brush - simple! The little pearly flowers came from The Glitter Girls new range of Crystal Flowers - they are so pretty...... I'm going to send this card to a friend who protests loudly that she cannot do anything crafty.... but hey! you should see her garden - it is a canvas of beauty! The text says "we are all artists - even if we don't know how to draw", is so so true, 'specially in her case! Happy Crafting. xx

The Artistic Stamper had this in mind when she created these rather lovely swirls and flourishes...... but I think they fitted the job exactly! Stamped onto pearlised card with Stazon [I confess to using a brand new ink pad! - just to make sure that I got sharp images] - I just love the monochromatic colours, think I might do something like this again, and maybe use fun flock powder on the stamped images....... how lush would that be?! Hope you like.I had a simple request from a friend the other day... she wanted a birthday card for her daughters 16th birthday and could it include a picture of a rather fabulous drawing she had done of a young lady - no problem thus far - until she mentioned that her daughters ambition was to be a Tattoo Artist!!!!! and could I include this as a theme.??????????? Don't know if Jennie at
