I've been painting , but not on cards

I've been busy this week, I've been decorating my son's bedroom and trying to get a good stock of nappy and towel cake gifts, ready for all the craft fairs that are coming up, starting this coming Saturday.
We had a great day out on Sunday, my hubby won us all VIP entrance to VW car racing at Donnington Park, including Paddock passes and free food and drinks all day.

My son has just joined the army cadets, so he asked for camoflage colours in his bedroom, as usual I decided to go one step further and painted him a feature wall to match the new camoflage bed linen.

What do you think? He loves it.
Please ignore the shelving unit, I've got to start putting all his belongings back in now.

Another batch of Christmas cards

Tried to keep these plain, so they were quite quick and easy to make. I bought the stamps from The Hobby House when I visited the Papercraft Show at Harrogate Showground last month.
I stamped and coloured with Promarkers and although you can't see on the photos, I used stickles on the snowman, Santas beard and Rudolphs antlers and nose.

So I would like to enter these in the A Spoon full of Sugar #124 - Sparkle and Shine and also Stamp Something - Time to Celebrate challenges.

More Christmas cards

I enjoyed making the card in the last post so much I decided to make some more using the same sketch. I'm trying to get a good stock of Christmas cards ready in time for a few local church and school craft fairs I will be attending. Thought I might group these together in a box or pack to sell.

Papertake Weekly blog hop card

Here's my card for the Papertake Weekly blog hop challenge.
I followed Dawny's sketch from challenge 31. As I'm currently trying to get my Christmas cards made, I decided to make this Christmas themed.
I stamped this gorgeous Whiff of Joy image and coloured with Promarkers.
I punched some patterned paper flowers and spritzed them with some gold silkies, then layered them up and finished with a pearl centre.
Hope you like it.
