Just got home from from visiting my friend Francesca, where we had a long overdue card making and chatting session.
We both recycled old Christmas cards to make new ones for this year - using some of Francesca's large pile of punched out snowflakes to add a bit of sparkle to them!
I made 7 cards but Francesca made a bit less, because she had to take time out to make a delicious lunch!
I also had a play with some of her new Christmas stamps and love this Christmas tree one - I thought it was very stylish, so stamped off a few more to use later.

Just a selection of gold and vellum cards - although I have made many general Christmas cards, I am stumped for some special, personalised cards for my close family. I hope inspiration strikes soon as its only a month to go!

I wasn't sure about this purple and lime colour scheme by Craftwork cards - they didn't seem very traditional or Christmassy!.
However they have started to grow on me and do look clean and modern - perhaps they will do for the cool and hip twenty somethings in the family!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while - been laid low with the dreaded Winter Vomiting bug.
Just feeling better now - knew I was ill because I didn't want to do any crafting. These cards both feature 2 polar bears staring at the stars in the sky and I love both of the images - they are so evocative!
