Happy Christmas

I didn't get to put many of my Christmas cards on my blog this year, seemed to be so busy making them all I didn't get round to doing it.  This is one of my this years favourites so I'm just posting it on here to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and hope you all get lots of  lovely crafting goodies from Santa !

Just a very quick card to enter the Cardsz4guy challenge which is Santa ( The Big Guy)
I love this image which I got from the internet a few years ago and I think I've used it on something every Christmas since. The papers are from Making cards Victorian Christmas mag which I got last year and promptly forgot I had it, discovered it when I decided to clear out some old craft magazines last week, oh well maybe will use some of the images and papers next year !

Can't seem to get a decent picture of this card, the colours are all wrong, the background is a lovely  soft gold but it looks more khaki on here!  Just a quick last minute make for Make My Monday challenge which is Nativity.

Had quite a nice day delivering the last few cards  to friends we always hand deliver to and a few more gifts delivered to some of the family who we won't see at Christmas. Also popped into a garden centre and had a quick lunch in their cafĂ© and just happened to see a few things in one of the outlet stores in there plus a couple of Christmas Robins happened to hop into my basket too! They do have a craft section too but I was very good and didn't buy anything in there as I do know there are some crafting goodies coming my way at Christmas, don't know just what as yet as I made quite an extensive wish list so it will be fun to see which items have been chosen for me. 

That awful wind seems to have died down for now after having wrecked our garden fence, I'm hoping to maybe get a new nicer one but have a feeling that other half is planning on repairing it !

Winter Wonderland

Christmas is coming up fast and here's another card to add to the stack, almost finished now!  This is my DT card for this months Stamping Sensations Challenge which this month is Winter Wonderland.
The background is coloured with Pan Pastels and trees second generation stamped to give distance, torn paper "hills" stamped and die cut trees and deer are from Sizzix holiday joy set, sentiment stamp from Inkylicious.  My fave snow which is frantage chunky white embossing powder. 

This is the fabulous prize on offer this month from our sponsors - Stamps By Chloe and Crafty Ribbons.
