It is coming up to my Mother In laws birthday and she will be the ripe young age of 80 so I need to get my thinking cap on for a card for her and I thought I’d start with this one.
It’s not just Eleanor that's praying because I’m doing some praying of my own that I’m as good as my Mother In Law when I hit 80 years of age.
Coloured with Copic Markers and blended with Pan Pastels.
Do you think this will do the trick?

So without further ado the winner of
Winter Jasmin is

Well it has been a cold wet dank week in my little part of the world, floods during the night kept our fire service busy and my daughter partner could get out of their estate so hopefully the worst is over.
I have to say although she is named Ragged Maggie she is the sweetest little thing isn’t she?
She’s as snug as a bug in a rug, Coloured with Copic markers and Prisma Pencils, Ribbons and twine from Ribbon Carousel and Harvest Lane by Simple Stories paper kit

I stumbled upon a new stamp company and I have to say they have some gorgeous stamps.
I’m using Winter Jasmine on my card today, Stephanie from Clearly Besotted Stamps has kindly given me the same stamp to do a blog candy with. I have to say that they stamp clean and crisp and are brilliant to work with.
Coloured with Copic markers and Prisma pencils and teamed with papers from a stack i got from Ribbon Carousel.
I also used some icicle stickles for fur and ice and a Martha Stewart Edge punch.
All you need to do to enter the blog Candy is pop over to the store here and subscribe to her news letter then leave me a comment below.

Laced with Vodka too, now that is some serious baking going on.
The Vodka Cake Recipe has been doing it’s rounds on Facebook so I thought it would be the perfect accompaniment for my image today.
I’m using this for an adult card so I thought the Vodka Cake recipe would be very apt, dotted papers in icing colours velvet lace and twine from Ribbon Carousel and a button from my stash and layered up in true cake fashion onto a Kraft base card.

I coloured the image with Copic markers then framed it with punched out leaves and coloured them with Pan Pastels.
Now don’t be scared and hop over and see the rest of the Crews cards

So this is After Eight Cottage purely because it’s full of them.
The After Eight Mint chocolates can be slipped out at the bottom of the door. The are perfect for this being individually wrapped.
I made a fence and a double gate from a Martha Stewart punch so there is entry to the chocolates.
I added the house on top of a board and covered it with a snow sheet and bought a tree ornament of a Christmas tree and wrapped it in fairy lights.
Of course as there is lights we had to have a night scene picture and all the photos are courtesy of my wonderful husband Chris.
Honest I've only eaten one of the chocolates and that was purely because it fell in my mouth.
I think you’ll agree these design templates are amazing from Creations by AR

I've always been a firm believer that you do not need to stick to one medium for your art work, mixing and matching can make your images pop off the page and add new dimension's to what would be a flat looking image.
At the moment Metallic Marks have 20% off so there couldn't be a better time to stock up on some of them.
here is how I used both ProMarker and Metallic Markers on the image. you can click on the image to enlarge it.
I think you'll agree the end result is gorgeous.
I'm giving away a set of the metallic Markers All you need to do is leave me a comment to enter and spread the word so tell all your friends.
Oh yes, if you also leave a comment on the Letraset Blog you will have two chances of winning.
