Celebrate you in winter card

Hi Crafty Friends,

My last winter card for today was created using an old image I printed out many years ago when I first started. She's a Bratz girl, free on the internet (coloring pages). I gave her a top to match the sky background. 

Thanks so much for coming to check out my card today :)

Snow Kissed (The Greeting Farm image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have an old well loved winter girl stamp from The Greeting Farm here on my card today. I added some die cut trees (die cut with green paper then added a white layer over the top slightly above so we can see a little bit of the green tree branches). I used borders from Lawn Fawn.

Birthday Penguins card

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's a beautiful warm day here in Oz but I've made 3 winter cards as most of you are all in winter right now, hopefully it's not too cold for you. I'm off to lunch with a couple of visiting  relatives from the UK so I'm going to make these posts as quick as I can as I'm still in my pyjamas hehe (my computer doesn't like my spelling of pyjamas, I'm guessing you'll all be thinking I've spelled it wrong but that's how we spell it here, I know, it doesn't make much sense to add a "y" to it lol). This image is no longer available and I fussy cut the little background penguins and trees from some patterned papers I had.

Birthday Bear with gifts card (Di's Digis image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is my favourite card of the day to post, I actually made the background for a Saturated Canary image but when I put my sweet bear against it I liked them together better, sometimes that happens doesn't it? The gorgeous image is from Di's Digis. I used a star stencil and white smooth texture paste, waited for it to dry then sponged some oxide inks over it. Some crafters manage to get the stars to stay white, I tried baby wiping them but they remained yellow and I didn't mind it but I'd love to know if you know a handy tip for my issue?
