Time to be merry

 This week at creative knockouts is Time to be merry with an image from mirtillamente   called christmas tree  it is a great image and one that my grand children will also like to colour in 

Here in new Zealand we have a summer Christmas so I try to do non traditional Christmas cards.I coloured the image with copics adhered it to red card then a green card I then punched a small hole in the corner and tied a bow, I put the candy cane which is a button, onto the bow before tying it off  I then found the striped  backing paper adhered to red card then all onto a white base I adhered the image on a slight angle because not every thing has to be straight or square

 This week at creative knockouts is Christmas delight with a image from patties creations using this image gingerbread house  thought it would be a nice stamp for the grandchildren to use as well

I started off thinking I would make the snow globe as my base card but it wouldn't stand up for long so it ended up on this card coloured the gingerbread house with copics added a bit of glitter glue with extra glitter to the roof and window ledges. For the bottom of the glob I used brown kraft paper, added the brads and stamped a sentiment

And as suspected one of my grandsons, came here after school to make his mother a birthday card, spotted the spare I had printed out and wanted to make one himself this is his effort as I still had the copics out that I had used he copied my card with a candy cane bottom and some star brads think he wants to have this laminated to hang on his Christmas tree, so I guess I will be peeling it off the card or we will make others
