The first challenge of the new blog ABC Christmas went live today. I am late making my card as I have been ill in bed since Xmas eve with a bad cold and suspected pleurasy. Basicallyt he lining between my lungs and ribs became inflamed making it painful to breath and move as all bruised. I ended up at the emergency doctors at 11pm on baxing day as I could not stop wheezing and my inhalour was not helping and the emergency doctor needed to check my chest to make sure it was not pneumonia, so I have spent the last few days in bed, thankfully my husband has been on annual leave to look after the boys.
I could not let Samantha and the rest of the team down after all the hard work that she has put into the new blog, so here is a card from me. It is rather a simple on I am afraid but please forgive me this once.
Hugs, a happy new year to you all xxx
check out the ABC Christmas blog for the winner of my small candy - to be posted in the new year when I am well along with the winners prize from my birthday candy which I have added to as been unable to post with all the family illnesses.

We are lucky to have Wendy sponsor us on abc this week and it is a nice theme of K is for Kissing. I have used a sarah kay stamp and mme papers both of which are available in Wendy's secret crafter shop. Flower is prima as is the swirl, papers have been slightly distressed.
This is Ed's school christmas card - isn't it adorable had to share.
and finally here is a sneak peek of the blog hop card for tomorrow. Make sure you are back here for the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog hop.

This was just a play around card - I think it may have been for a Simon Says Challenge

I have coloured willow in using copics and mounted her onto an easel card using basic grey wassill pack - I adore this pack. For a bit of difference instead of surrounded her in distressed inks I used a watered down mixture of primrose yellow twinkling H2O's which gives it a beauiful and discrete gold tinge to the paper. The flowers I made up to resemble a bouquet and added a pearl in the middle for depth and then added sparkles to the edges of the flower to resemble dew. I have been doing this for the last few months and love the effect, think I will need to buy some more soon though! The papers have been mounted onto black card stock to create the card as I wanted to keep to a particular pallette and white would have been too harsh. The leaves have been cut out using my favourite fern punch.
I hope you like it
This is a commission family card for a friends wife.

The idea is one image that everyone uses and one pad of paper. It would be facinating to see different styles and uses of the papers.
I don't think there is another challenge like this out there.
