 Hello everyone,

Remember I challenged myself to colour and make some cards, well, I did it..

All printed..this was a freebie a long time ago from Crissy Armstrong - Whimsey Stamps

Getting started, and all one layer..

So after these few were done,
 I wandered off for a drink or something to eat or a tinkle..
Then decided to time myself from start to finish in the colouring..

with a very modern way of timing, ha ha ha..GO!


DONE!!.. 9 minutes..mmm not bad..

I clean up after everyone and set up for next one..[ OCD-lol]

Then there were five..

Then before I could even think about it, there were 10

I messed up one of the snow grounds,
 but let it go, lesson learned..

This was adding snow, painted on the glue, very lightly, stops the card from warping and sprinkled the snow glitter..

See the odd man out?

Already for their sentiments..

Which I printed out...THAT'S when my printer died..

Matted the sentiments in red, crooked, so roughed up the edges so you cannot tell..

added some red gems for the berries..

There they are on the bases..

And yes Janette, they bled through. but I did anticipate that..

and popped in folded copy paper inserts, that covers it a bit.

Plus, the card stock is cheap stuff I had in my cupboard..
and pretty soft.

but I did it, and really wanted to do more, 
but will have to sort out the printer issue first..

Later that day when all was dry, they were bagged up and ready to go out to the shop..
So there we go..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

They look gorgeous Chrissy, 9 minutes is very quick to colour an image!
You did really well to complete all 10 of them!

They are so very cute, yeah I always do my coloring on another cardstock and then add that too my card base.
That is a bummer about your printer, hopefully you figured out what went wrong and don't have to purchase a new one, unless you would like a new one and this is a good excuse ;)
