Fab Card Making Session!

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.

Gold & Vellum Christmas Cards

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!

Purple & Lime at Christmas???

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!

Polar Bears

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!

Forever Friends at Christmas ...

A selection of a few 'Forever Friends' Christmas cards I made this week - I must be going through a bit of a cute phase!
