A Sloth of Polar Bears

Who knew a group of Polar Bears is called a Sloth? Not me until I googled it!
This weeks group of Christmas cards all feature Polar bears of one sort or another.

More Holly !

 A few more Christmas cards featuring  my cute little sprigs of holly. 

I've now made around 50 Xmas cards, but still lots more needed!

A Sprig of Holly

One of my favourite embellishments at the moment is a little felt sprig of holly - I have bought 2 packets so far from Hobbycraft. 

They seem to fill up an empty space or add a bit of texture and dimension to many different styles of Christmas cards.

A Herd of Reindeer

 Now that the Christmas Card production line line is in full swing, I've made sure that a few of them feature a reindeer.

I love seeing them in a snowy scene and have several reindeer and stag ornaments that I bring out every year

What's your favourite Christmas character?

One Christmas Stamp - Several Colourways!

I've got a bit carried away with this oval sentiment stamp that was part of a set from this months Creative Stamping Magazine.

I stamped it out in many different coloured inks and tried it out with different background papers.

Now I've got to try out the other
stamps in the set!

Cat Number 3

No time to make cards this week as we have a new addition to our household - Jinny!

She is 6 or 7 months old and we have adopted her from Suffolk Animal Rescue after her previous owner died.

She is lively, friendly and very inquisitive.

Our other two cats are getting used to her - but Jinny is quite feisty and will hiss and bat them if they get too close.
