Lotsa cards on the way!

Hi folks. I've been steadily building up a supply of cards, but as the weather's been dismal here this week, there's not been a good enough light to photograph them by... But today there's been a weak yellow thing in the sky, so yay!

There will be separate posts for challenge entries, but in the meantime...

This little cutie has been coloured in and waiting to go on a card since the beginning of august!! I got a little distracted by LOTV. Oops!

Medium: Promarkers
Paper and tree/snowflake stickers: magazine freebies
Sentiment: Forever Friends
Ribbon: Docrafts

Next up... A rather glamorous lady. Don't know if you can tell on the picture, but I added stickles to her top/dress, to make it sparkle. Looks great up close! I also added some to the top of her cocktail stirrer, which hubby thought was a great touch.

Medium: Promarkers
Paper: Papermania "Midnight Fairytale"
Sentiment: LOTV
Stardust stickles
Silver miri, blue and white card, ribbons & gems from stash

A LOTV lady next (didn't take me long to revert back, lol). This is the first time I've tried adding shadow with distress ink and I'm not too sure of the outcome... I shall have to practice more and experiment with the card I'm using...

Medium: Promarkers and weathered wood distress ink.
Paper: Grace Taylor "Bright young things" and Crafty Bitz
Sentiment: LOTV 
White and purple card, ribbon and gems from stash.

And finally for this post, another LOTV, and a boy's one this time. This one is kinda special, as it was made by!!
Basically, what I did was make lists and randomise them, and using the top item in each list, so it chose the size and shape of the card, the sentiment, and the colours to use (I picked the top 3 in that case.).

Add in some hand-cut stars and a button and tadah:

Medium: Promarkers
Paper: MME
Sentiment: LOTV
White, blue and yellow card, button and twine from stash

So that's all the "just for fun" cards I made over the past few days. I'm currently working on a set of 5 identical Christmas cards I'll be sending to my mum for her to send out this year (featuring the LOTV "Holly Tree" stamp...) Watch this space...

I'll be back with some challenge entries shortly. In the meantime, have a shiny day!
