Glamour on my tree and a cute little birdy

I am really looking forward to getting our Christmas tree! I don’t know about you but I really love having a real Christmas tree… and we always get if from the same local garden nursery in one of the villages near where I live…

So with that in mind when I won some images from Prairie fairy through the fabby Incy Wincy Challenge one of the image I chose was the beautiful Spruce Trees I also wanted to this Stamp Fairy Barry Winter image I had used it a couple of posts ago and really love him so decided to use them together. 

I printed the tree direct onto my card coloured with distress inks and then wet glue and glamour dust. Barry is printed onto another sheet and coloured in with distress inks too! and then a little glamour for him too! 
I also had fun making my own clouds too!

I really love this weeks Cupcake inspirations - Inspiration photo YUM!! so went with the colours for my card. There is a little hint on brown on the plate that I spy! so that is the colour I chose to do Barry in!

For my Second card for this post I wanted to join in with a few challenge and have been trying to play along with Catch the bugs - 12 Days of Christmas Challenges so Yesterday was day 5 which in the song is 5 gold rings so we have to use some gold on the card…
Here is my card with some Gold Ribbon the ribbon has Merry Christmas on it but with the terrible light here you can hardly read it.

  3. Hi Samantha
    Both cards are adorable! Just as I am looking at the inspirational picture it makes me feel like having some cakes myself. What am I like? Oh no now I sound like Anthony Cotton from the "I am celebrity get me out of here" this year. Just incase you did not watch and was wondering what I am going on about.
