We wish you a merry...........

...........No I won't, not just yet!! lol

I finally found the swing card I made for Sadie's challenge on Just Bex a while ago. I made the card and somehow it was picked up and put in the Christmas drawer. Anyhow I found it yesterday and here it is (with all my mess behind it) Oh to be a tidy crafter! LOL
I bought some ready cut cards like this a couple of years ago but I don't know what happened to them and more to the point...........I didn't have a clue what to do with them.
I managed last Friday's dare and the Little Extra yesterday as well as a few other Christmas cards. I have a small break from doing wedding stationery and have a jewellery party booked for the end of the month so I thought I had better get my skates on. The dares first..........It was Jo's turn last Friday I seem to have developed a little bit of a fixation with old cardboard boxes....! My dare this week is to use some corrugated card on your card - it could be corrugated craft card or an old box etc. taken to pieces :) You could make the card blank from it or die cut shapes etc...
Papers are last years DCWV Christmas pad, corrugated tree, diamantes and ribbon were from my stash. Santa's Little Helper is still trying to motivate us into getting those Christmas cards made and this week our subject is Piles of Parcels. We'd like you to put some gorgeous, tempting, beautifully wrapped Christmas parcels on your cards this time.I love this set of stamps. I bought them from here a couple of months ago and this is the first time they have been used. Papers again are DCWV. I also used a bits from my scrap box. Puss was paper pieced. I stamped her onto cream laid card then onto red (for the hat), patterned paper for the pressie and then plain pink card for the bow on the pressie. She has been embellished with diamantes and pink glitter.
Those cards got me in the mood so I made a few more.Tree is stamped in black using one of the little Studio G stamps and coloured with the lovely pearly paints from the Works. Paper is DCWV as before and ribbon is from stash.Isn't he just adorable? He came from Cornish Heritage Stamps The service is excellent and the stamps are gogeous. He was coloured with Sakura metallic pens. Papers as before (I will get them used!) and greeting is from Studio G.Card, ribbon and charm from stash.



Papers are from the new Dovecraft Christmas Blues 6 x 6 pack. White card embossed using the Cuttlebug snowflake folder and the rest is from stash.

Papers this time are DCWV again, reindeer stamp is from Scrummy Stash Cafe and the tag was a freebie from the front of a mag.
Paper this time is Christmas Wishes from the English Paper Company. Other card, ribbon and brad from stash.
This morning I managed five cards from one of Nicky's old challenges on the Just Bex forum. Here is what she said It's time for another Friday night (well, afternoon) challenge with a Christmas theme! We like to keep you busy........... This time, we'd like you to make 5 Christmas cards using patterned paper - but NOT Christmas-themed paper............. and here are my cards
I need a big tidy up now so I can make some more mess............sorry I mean create Christmas cards. :)
Back soon. xx

That's a MOUNtain of cards - I thought the show would never end! They are all wonderful too, Not fair, I'm going to sulk in the corner now, I was already starting to panic about my lack of Christmas card inspiration and you've gone and put the boot in now!
