Cards for the Kids

Sorting through my stash I came across a set of papers and chipboards from the Party Animal Range from Kaisercraft. 

They are so bright and zingy that I just felt I had to make some more cards with then. 

I don't have any spare birthday cards suitable for young children, so put some together for the younger members of the family. I can just add the appropriate number for their age.

Are you playing with your crafty Christmas presents...

Because I have been! I couldn't resist it any longer, I had to get out my stash which had ALL been tidied away for Christmas, and now it is spread all over the lounge table again!

I wanted to use my new Papermania Urban bird stamps because of their lovely vintage, distressed look with my new Brilliance Copper ink

Back to the ATC's

Now that my Christmas Stash is packed away, I'm going back to making some ATC's and with these two, I've used some of the great free stamps with this month Simply Homemade Magazine in a collage. 

I'm hoping to join in a lot more ATC swaps this year as often the challenges are challenging - forcing me to try different techniques, themes or styles that are a bit out of my comfort zone!

Very Last Christmas Card??

I have written out and posted all my cards and still have a few left over - so why did I decide to make this card this morning??

Well,  you can blame the latest challenge at Inspirational Card Sketches.

Lottery Scratch card Holders

We are having a big family get together at my house of Boxing Day - expecting 17, so it will be a houseful!

As a small Christmas Tree present, all the adults are getting a lottery scratch card, so I spent a fun evening making little envelope holders to put them in.

I set myself the task of trying to use up some of the scraps of Christmas papers accumulated over the years, but really they didn't make much of a dent in the pile!

Deco Lady Christmas Cards

The end is in sight, Christmas is only 2 weeks away, so why am I still making cards? Those for all my family and friends have been written and posted, plus I have a few spares just in case, but I still can't stop making cards!

Perhaps it is because I still have so many lovely papers and stamps left??

These beautiful ladies are from the Debbi Moore Magazine with just a sprinkling of extra glitter and silver ribbon added!
