Last of the Christmas Cards


How has your week been? Can you believe that the first week of January is over all ready? No neither can I. It's very worrying that there doesn't seem to be a minute of the day left for anything but before you know it it's the end of the week already.

I thought i would show you the last of the christmas cards. It doesn't seem right showing more when we are starting to look forward to spring arriving.

The first card is one I made my good friend Angela. For this one I used The Serene Snowflakes stampset (yes, I know, this one was definatley put to good use.) I like the fact that you can make lots of different styles of cards with one set. The cardstock is Old Olive layered with Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler. Nice christmassy colours. I stamped some of the snowflakes with the champayne shimmer paints. The greeting is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped with the Curly Cute set. The ribbon is the Striped Grosgain in Old Olive.

The next card was for my lovely friend Carol. She absolutley loves the House Mouse series so i got some decoupage sheets of them and made it up. I layered onto some Real Red cardstock with some green mirror card from my stash. I used the little flower stamp from the Season of Joy set and then stamped my greeting from the Welcome Christmas stamp set in Real Red ink and Old Olive. I finished of with the Whisper White Organzer ribbon.

So back to more course work, I will be glad when the end of march arrives.

Have a great week.
