An early Christmas present

I treated my self to an early Christmas present - the Marianne Creatables lamp post die that I have been lusting over since I saw it advertised in a magazine over a month ago.

Despite heavy hints, it looked like no-one was going to buy it for me, so I ordered it myself!

As it arrived today and I'm off on strike, I could not resist trying it out straight away and this is my first attempt with a glittery rudolph!

I'm entering this into Mariannes 'It's Christmas' Challenge

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

I love this cute reindeer from Lili of the Valley - this evening I went with the family down to Stowmarket to watch the Christmas lights switch on. They had 2 real live Reindeer there as well as Santa, a snow machine and loads of live music. Fabulous!!!

More Polar Bears!

Following on from my last post with those little felt polar bears, I checked my stash and found these cute polar bear stamps. The cub is from Dimension Fourth and the oval free from a magazine. Plus I unearthed a sweet polar bear topper from Lili of the Valley.

I don't know about you, but I tend to go in phases of colours, layouts and themes when making cards - feeling icy, blue and bears at the moment!

Little Felt Polar Bears

I bought these cute little felt polar bears in a sale in January, I wish I could remember where from and I wish I had bought more of them!

A Cute Little Christmas

These cute little characters are from Craftwork Cards, and as a change from the traditional colour schemes, I've made these with purples and golds because I got this beautiful gold & purple ribbon which I was desperate to use!

21st cards for Twins!

I was commissioned to make 21st birthday cards for a pair of twin girls, the only guidance I had was for BIG cards - one for the girly twin, the other who is more of a tomboy but loves to party!

So these are A4 sized using Papermania birthday papers and their 2 and 1 stamps and I added their names cut by my Cuttlebug and made them similar but different. My friend likes them - hope the twins do too!

Yummy Christmas Ribbon

I treated myself to some scrumptious Christmas ribbon from Halfpenny Home today and couldn't wait to to use it on a card!

I've teamed it up with a snowman from Craftwork cards and freebie papers from Quick Cards Magazine

Yet Another Great Stamp from Craft Stamper Mag!

I went away for a weeks holiday to Wales and when I came back the latest edition of Crafter Stamper Magazine was waiting on the door mat.

I'm just loving this months free stamp of the reindeer and had to ink him up straight away and make this card and 2 ATC's!
