Totally Papercrafts ,,,,,, Anything BUT Christmas ! :-)

Are ya all ready for Santa ?? I think that probably most of us do have our cards about ready and if we need any extra’s we can always buy Charity cards eh ,,, :-)

I hope all of our friends up in Scotland are safe and well !! Anne,,,, we’re thinking of you xx

This week on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge it is Vicky’s turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,


We are sponsored by the lovely Melissa at Meljen Designs so some fab digi images on offer for one lucky entrant !

I needed to make a Graduation card fro my niece who has just got a degree in Maths ,,, clever girl :-) I don’t think she looks at my blog so I should be OK posting it on here ,,,

I used this very cute Changito Graduation image from Stampendous , very easy to colour , just a couple of Copics and voila !! The papers are Basic Grey from a Manila pack and I embossed some ivory SU card with a star embossing folder too, all the edges were then inked with Vintage Photo DI. The bias tape is from The Ribbon Girl and I added a mortar board charm and BG button from a Little Black Dress Brads and Buttons pack . The little black dots are sparkly coal from Stamping Bella.

Do you think this is too masculine ? I am not sure, Ray said, it has a bow, it’s girly !! anyway too late ,,, it will be on its way to the post office in a few mins ,,, coffee first :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some fabby non Christmassy creations for you to see so hop on over to the TPC to see them :-)
