Lastly... Christmas Trees

You can't have christmas cards without christmas trees!!
I have to say my favourite card here has to be the second one... using last years Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers (I can't believe I actually cut into that paper... I saved it last year because I couldn't bare cutting into it LOL....I have non left now!) The quote is a Penny black stamp which I glittered up the word heart.

Right I think I need a lay down after all this blogging!!
I have been making some fantastic things recently thanks to our stampers 10 meet ups and some craft workshops via Michelle our fantastic SU lady... I've made waterfall mini book, gift bags and boxes, hand made bows (although they didn't turn out very well LOL) post it note holders, tea light holders... the list is endless!!!
I made some FAB things yesterday at my last Stampers 10... but I can't show you those yet as I want to make a few more as gifts if I can!

Snowflake Christmas Cards

Yep I also have an addiction to snowflakes... every year I have to buy more snowflake stamps or dies or punches... you can never really have enough snowflakes!!

The large snowflake is the new Cuttlebug cut and emboss snowflake die... I think this has to be my most used snowflake die EVER... I really love it, it's a traditional snowflake... it looks fab in the doodlebug velvet & glitter card stock!

I did make quite a few pink and purple Christmas cards this year... I know those colours aren't really traditional colours for Christmas but I think they look fab and you know me and pink!!

Owl Chrimbo Cards

Well it's been a while since I posted anything... the reason for this is that pretty much every spare moment I've had to craft lately has been on christmas cards and seeing as I like to try and make every one different (roughly about 150 this year) I haven't wanted to put any photos on my blog encase those that receive them spot them first!

Now that most of the cards I've given out have been received I feel I can show some now! Although I forgot to take pictures of over half of my cards... I always do this :(

Firstly here are a few of the owl cards I made... yes I have an addiction to owls at the moment... think you might have already worked that one out LOL.

The large owl is a Penny Black owl... isn't he cute?! Then I've used the cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder with the lovely co-ordinations paper and the swirl is a Sizzix Sizzlit die cut using the Doodlebug glitter card stock.
