Started at last!!!























At last I have been inspired to start my Christmas cards, I usually start making them at the end of August as I have quite a few to do and I like to make a variety of designs rather than one design that I send to everyone.  This year I couldn't seem to get motivated and then I saw the challenge on the Caardvarks blog was sponsored by Hero Arts and I love Hero Arts products!!! I love the new snow globe cling stamp and it seemed perfect for a shaker card.

This card by the lovely Lucy also caught my eye, I love the beautiful trees she has created.






















I stamped the image three times onto green paper then cut the images out and folded them in half.  Gluing them together creates a 3D effect.




















Woo Hoo no work  tomorrow my Uncle is 90 and we are having a surprise party for him, should be fun .

Super cute holiday cards! It is so hard to start on Christmas projects for me when it is still fairly warm outside! I adore the snowman inside the bauble!
