Happy Holidays

I was a bit late in posting this week because our internet was down last night!

It's Challenge time again! This week the challenge is to use brads and buttons on a card. I have been trying something new lately and trying to think 'scrapping' a bit more with the layouts of my cards because I was a bit stuck on matting everything so here is an attempt!

For this image I stamped the small Christmas hat first and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the Sydney koala. He does look cute with a little Christmas hat! I attempted to use my brand new Twinkling H2O's on this card and they are so fun! They colours are just gorgeous. I watercoloured Sydney first and then put on some H2O's on his hat and the leaves to add a bit of sparkle! I found it was REALLY hard to get it to show up nicely on camera bit here is a bit of an idea. If you click on the pictures you will be able to see them bigger.

I LOVE this festive Koala bear!! What wonderful colouring Amy, as usual for you!! You know, when I was little I dreamed of having a real Koala bear of my very own....I had to settle for a stuffed toy one!! Haha!!

This is adorable! I've been thinking "scrapping" more on my cards, too! I REALLY love what I'm seeing in the scrapbook industry right now, and maybe I'm a little tired of putting 44 layers on every card!
