Debbys' Fave Five Christmas Cards from 2010...

I couldn't resist joining in with Debbys' Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2010 - possibly because this is the first year I've actually made five Christmas cards...

First up is the first one I made with this years Stampavie Christmas release - the Dearest Deer love affair began right about then... :)

Another Stampavie 2010 release next - love that this image is utterly gorgeous with very little colouring effort, definitely my kinda stamp!

This adorable li'l CC Designs Angel has to get a spot - purely for reminding me how much I love CC Designs.

Stampavie's Pile of Penguins are next - I adore penguins!

And this teeny tiny Pink Petticoat card to finish - I loved this one so much I ended up making a LOT of them, they were the cards I sent to all the grown-ups ;)

I'll finish with a big thank you to Debby - that was fun!

A gift for you...

I have a couple of little gift cards to share today - they're made up of yet more Cosmo Cricket and CC Designs Sugarplums I'm afraid!

Love little Reindeer Trevor - he was my fave stamp from last Christmas :)
Tracy has a whole stack of adorable CC Designs stamps in stock over at Dies to Die For

A few challenges for this one:

That's a LOT of challenges for me! Thanks to the DT's on all for the inspiration :)

Gorgeous silky ribbons, sweet little bells, bakers twine, glassine bags and a whole heap of other scrumminess can be found over at The Ribbon Girl - it's my new favourite place to hang out :)

Once finished, the little gift cards have been popped in a glassine bag and tied up with ribbon. Couldn't resist tucking in a candy cane too - I love making things Christmas-pretty!

Enjoy your day,

...I didn't mean to leave it quite so long between posts!

Here's a quick little card I stuck together using the latest Club Anya sketch...

The latest theme over at CCT is "One for the Kids" - go check it out, there's a $25 MFT voucher up for grabs :)

Hope you're all staying warm and cozy - I'm off for another quick play in the snow before it gets dark...

Floral Frenzy? Too right...

I have my suspicions that this challenge was set just to traumatize me.
It did.
Hopefully the damage is not permanent and I'll be back soon with my usual bitsa-string-and-absolutely-no-flowers-kinda-cards.

Laters ;)

Jingle all the way...

I have a quick little card to share today using the super-cute Dearest Deer from Stampavie.

I managed to squeeze in two challenges for this one too - A Spoon Full of Sugars' "Christmas Card" and  I Love ProMarkers' "Christmas Carol/Song" - see the little bell tied on to the bow? Every time I see those bells on my desk I start humming Jingle Bells :)

Speaking of Jingle Bells, the big Horror is leading the brass section of the school band in their Chrimbo concert next week. I've listened to endless renditions of Jingle Bells over the past few weeks. I am of course, very proud, but I swear, if I see him emptying the spit valve all over the carpet again I will be wrapping that freakin' trumpet round the nearest wrappable thing I can find...

Have a good 'un ;)

I kinda doubt that anyone who's been visitin' my blog for a while will be surprised to see another card with a CC Designs image on it - I do after all, have a habit of getting a little massively obsessed with them...

This little one's for the latest ATS Wednesday Challenge and their snowflake theme.

Catch y'all tomorrow - possibly with yet another CC Designs card... ;)

Stay warm!
