Just Hangin' Around Waiting for Santa

Another card inspired by the aptly named Inspirational Card Sketches blog (ICS #92). This has a diagonal shaped background paper which I have never tried before but works quite well!

It also used some more of my golden snowflakes and swirls that I cut out earlier.

Puddy Cat Christmas

This image looks a bit like our kitten Moxxi, who is very mischievous and inquisitive.

I know he won't be able to resist climbing up the Christmas tree and playing with the baubles when we get them out!

I just couldn't resist it!

I know this was on my wish list for Santa but Christmas is still a long way off any I can't wait that long - it's pay day today and I just happened (!) to be passing a craft shop and this Marianne Creatable die of a bird on a branch leapt into the basket.

So, of course, I just had to try it out straight away and made this CRAFTRAK card to send on to Crissie in Gloucestershire as a RAK

There is a new challenge site starting up and Crafty Hazelnut has some fab christmas papers as a candy to entice you over

Bentley Bear Christmas Card

This little fairy ted is one of the cute Bentley bear chipboard figures that was free with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. I have teamed her with some of my golden snowflakes and swirls against burgundy background papers. I just counted up and I now have made 60 Christmas cards - which is just about how many I need. But that won't stop me making more!

Recycled Snowflakes

At Mid Suffolk District Council we are holding a sports ceremony soon where we are handing out framed certificates. Each of the frames came with gold coloured card corner protectors , which of course I snaffled - so this morning I have been cutting out swirls and snowflakes with my marianne dies and Cuttlebug.

Not bad from triangular scraps of card are they? I'm sure these will come in very useful.

Don't forget to pop over to Charity Crafters blog where there is a huge pile of candy in memory of a special crafter - Amanda. This closes on 26th Nov.

Simple Christmas Tree Card

Just a Quick and easy christmas tree card using free papers from a Magazine - can't remember which, perhaps Creative cards? Had to stop the kittens walking all over it - why do they always want to sit on the card you are working on ????

Inspirational Card Sketches

Well, the Inspirational Card Sketches blog certainly lived up to its name as it made me route through my stash to come up with this card based on their circular sketch #90 - it not something that I would have come up with without their help - its even got a bit of recycled chocolate box ribbon on it!

Polar Bears

I just love this cute stamp of 2 polar bears sitting together staring at the stars. I bought it last year in a bargain bin for only 99p. I've teamed it with black with red and white polka dots for a bit of a contrast.

I am try hard not to buy any more Christmas stash as I have so much still left over from last year!

Black & Gold Christmas Card

Black outline sticker against a gold patterned piece of vellum and I just doodled some stitching around the edge as a border - another quick and easy card!

Three Little Robins

Just found this cute stamp of 3 little Christmas robins perched in a branch which was free from a magazine last year (can't remember which!).

After a bit of a hectic day at work I finally managed to sit down at 9pm for a bit of crafting to unwind, but must go off to bed now so can't start making my more cards!

A Gorjuss Card

I just love these gorjuss girl with a polar bear images in the beautiful sea green colours - she is sooo sweet and they help to make a really eye catching and different Christmas card!
