Hello all. Sorry my blog has been very quiet during December. We’ve had a variety of illnesses here, nothing serious, but enough to keep me busy when the kids were ill, or feeling rotten when I’d caught it off them!
I’ve also been busy with a few deadlines that I’ll tell you about when I’m able to! With all that, plus sending out Christmas cards and buying / wrapping presents, I feel quite exhausted. But now we’re well, and all prepared, and I’m looking forward to a lovely Christmas Day tomorrow.
For this quick post I thought I’d show you a few Christmas cards that I hadn’t had a chance to blog about. There were many more, some that I made in a rush just before visiting people (!), but these are my favourites…
Deck the Halls:
A card using Crate Paper Sleigh Ride, my Slice Design Cutter and the Fa La La card, and some wood veneer snowflakes.
Using Pink Paislee City Sidewalks, some flicks of Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Spritz, and a Craft Tonic Star Punch.
Merry Christmas For You:
I’ve used up the rest of my My Mind’s Eye All is Bright 6×6 Paper Pad now, which makes me feel sad as I loved it so much! There’s also Rhinestones, Stickers, and Decorative Tape from the collection on here, plus a bit of silver string.
‘Tis The Season:
More All is Bright on this one. I followed a tutorial by Meghann Andrew to make a Washi Tape feather, and I added some gold tinsel-like trim at the bottom. I need to source more of this trim as I love how it shines!
Now I’m off to arrange the presents under the tree, and then get some sleep before the children wake up nice and early!
Merry Christmas to all my wonderful readers. I hope that all of you, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, are having a lovely few days to finish off 2012 in style. I’ll be back again before the end of the year to share some news!
