Crate Paper Christmas Cards

Jingle Bells narrow

Hey there! It's Sunday afternoon as I write this....posting it to go live tomorrow when these will also go up on the Shop and Crop Blog.

Sasha sent me a few new Crate Paper Christmas goodies - stickers/patterned paper/die-cuts/pearls..... which I have played with to create 4 very quick cards....with plenty of left-overs for another 4 cards at least.

What do you think?

A lot like Christmas main


Merry Christmas main

As you can see they're very sheet of PP double sided, stickers and die-cuts with a few rhinestones scattered around for good measure LOL.

I hope you have a happy Monday whatever you get up to.

Bye for now...

Pretty in Pink - using an ATC on my card

Olivia's Card narrow

Hey there.....remember me??? Feels like I've hardly been around here at all and I have missed creating and sharing. Finally after 3 nights of those pains I told you about I went to the doctor who has got me heading off for tests tomorrow....possible gall stones. Bought on by stress most likely and I can attest to it being a more stressful than usual month or so. Hmmm we'll see what the ultrasound and blood tests show up...won't know results til Wednesday.

In the meantime I'm doing what I can to de-stress and calm down and b-r-e-a-t-h-e. :)

So, DD asked me to make a card for her pink loving friend with the glorious birthday cake from the There She Goes set Make a Wish.

As this week's challenge at There She Goes is to make an ATC I decided I would do that but then use it on my card I pulled out some old SU! Raspberry Tart papers, some edge and flower punches, my Copics and here's the result....

See you again soon I fact I'll be back tonight to draw a Card for Comments Winner....haven't done one for a couple of weeks !
