I've had this Twilight under the Sea paper pad for a while now, it's got some great designs in it and on a trip to The Range yesterday I spotted these 'Dive In' silhouette and sentiment stamps that go with it for £4.99 - so I snapped them up!
As you can see they go together well and make a different type of card - such a change from my usual girly flowers & butterflies!
And this is a card I had made previously with the background papers and a sweet fairy!
Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope that everyone appreciated your Christmas cards and other home made crafted goodies!
I made over 450 Christmas cards this year - 400 of which went to various local charities to help with their fund raising. With a bit of a push I hope to exceed that total next year but find it hard to get in the festive mood until September.
Just to finish with card to you all, made with a freebie embossing folder and bauble die from a magazine and silver bow saved off the crackers last year!
I was lucky enough to win these Masculine dies made by the Christina Collection from a crafting magazine. It arrived about 6 weeks ago when I was in the middle of Christmas card making, so I put them to one side.
Now the Christmas crafting is over for this year I got them out and had a play!
They cut really nice and crisp images, and are a great addition to my ever growing collection of dies.
So useful for those 'difficult to make for' men in your life!
