Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Quirky Christmas Cards

Yes, really........I've made some Christmas cards, but decided to mix it up a bit and use images that aren't normally aimed at Christmas, alongside some images that obviously are!

So quirky first - 

I love this Mo Manning image and this girl really makes me smile as she looks so excited and happy, perfect for Christmas then I reckon! So as you see I coloured her with my Copics in different combos and put her on different sized cards. Am sure I'll make plenty more like this.

The other image is the gorgeous butterfly baby which is a Saturated Canary image. Again I thought it would be sweet to use for a Christmas card, may try it in different colours too.

Now for the images that are meant for Christmas - 

This is a Saturated Canary image that is cute!

This fab fairy is a Make It Crafty image.

These 3 use the same Humphrey's Corner image from Crafter's Companion, couldn't resist colouring it in different colours. I embossed the card base with this fab snowflake folder and then just added the image, sentiment and some card candi. So simple!

I don't usually have time to sit and colour images for Christmas cards, I tend to use kits and toppers that make it quick and easy but I've wanted to colour some of my images to use so while it's been freezing outside and I've been resting in the warm I went ahead and coloured away!

Take care Zo xx
