Shabby Chic, Christmas Trees & Flowers!

 Hello lovely peeps,
I've had a terrifying day! Not because of the weather, I feel traumatised by my friend Ali wanting to play with my copics! No way is that ever happening, I don't think my heart could take the stress of Ali getting her mitts on my beloved copics, the thought of it is giving me palpitations lol.

I have quite a few cards I want to get blogged & caught up with now I feel that I am at last getting back on track with blogging life & wanting to craft again thank goodness :)
So many of you lovely people have been buying my cards lately, here at home & in my Etsy shop that I am having trouble keeping up with stocking up my little shop so a mahoosive thank you to all my lovely customers, you've definitely helped restore my mojo and my little shop will be restocked as soon as I've finished writing this post :)

My first card today is one I made a few weeks ago & just never got around to blogging & to be honest I forgot about it until I was looking through my cupboard for cards to restock my little shop with & discovered this adorable girlie :)
 I was actually really happy this card for a change :)
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes & parasol - RV95, RV93, RV91 / C3, C1, C00
  I've used some shabby white frantage  on this card and spray painted pretty much everything except for the image in keeping with the shabby chic look.
This card will available in my Etsy shop in a little while :)
My next card is one I've created with some of Simon Says Stamp new Holiday release goodies which I absolutely love & yes I've used that stencil & snowflake again :)
I have stamped the tree with Hero Arts shadow ink in keeping with the softness of the colours.
My last card to share today is one I had the pleasure of creating for the Simon Says Stamp store blog a while ago and I want to share these cards on my blog too as a record of which stamps I've used mainly so I can continue on my mission to try & ink up all my neglected Magnolia stamps :)
With this card I wanted to show that Magnolia stamps can look really elegant so have left it very CAS looking for me & surprisingly I am happy with how the finished card looks :)
The copic colours I've used are -
vases - C3, C1, C00 / W4,W2, W00, flowers - R85, 83, R81, RV000  /  YR27, YR24, YR21 / YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91
Hubby is still away riding around London, he's very pleased with himself being a model and being in photo shoots at the London eye, Buckingham Palace etc lol. All of their photo shoots were cancelled today due to the storm but hopefully the next two days will be much more interesting for them!
That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by
