Did I miss Christmas?

Because today I went into the Range and spotted not only Valentine crafty stuff but also Easter too!!!

I'm just finishing off my Christmas cards for the Local Hospice, they want them for an event on Friday. I was hoping to drop them off tomorrow, but I guess that depends on the Weather and if St Jude storm turns out to be as bad as they predict!

Red & Gold

I am really pleased how the gilding flakes have picked out the detail of this stamp - which has lots of swirls and fiddly bits! 
The sentiment is by Craftwork cards - this is just one of my Charity cards for the local hospice

Golden Reindeer

I loved the cute metal reindeer stencil that came free with  Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine, I don't use stencils very often, but sprayed it with gold Cosmic Shimmer Mist to get the outline for this card with a dot of  ruby red liquid pearls for his nose. 

I've also been approached by 2 local charities to make some Christmas Cards for them - so it looks like I will be able to make a bit of a dent in my Christmas Stash - I have papers and embellishments that must be at least 5 years old in there!

A Herd Of Reindeer

 Not sure why, but all the Christmas cards that I have made recently, seem to feature reindeer in them!

I remember that last year I made too many cute Christmas cards that were just not suitable for some of my older family and friends, so I seem to have concentrated on making some more traditional style cards this time.

After a bit of a slow start, I have now got in the swing of it and enjoy getting out all the mirri card, glitter and Christmas bling.
