The second card was inspired by the stamped hexagon image that Linda sent to me, I decided to make a hexagon shaped card, to do this I got the shape from Google images and cut to the size I wanted.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a Happy New Year. As you know I work in a school so I don't go back till 7th January, another weeks holiday is just what I need and I hope to find time for more crafting!!

I have not had much time to make any cards lately so I thought I would post a photo of my tree with some gingerbread decorations I have been busy making. This is the first time I have made these and they taste yummy, I just need to practice ,my icing skills!!
I also want to take this opportunity to thank all my followers for spending time visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Hugs to you all

Here is another quick, flat card that I made to post out this Christmas. I have used that cute HA snowman again and just placed him on the Merry Background. His scarf is very glittery which doesn't really show in the photo.
I have been a really bad blogger recently as so many things to do both at home and work. Thank you to all my lovely followers who take time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it. I hope to get back to normal with both blogging and visiting blogs very soon.

I was lucky enough to win the Merry Background stamp from Hero Arts and when it arrived I couldn't wait to ink it up. I need to make quite a few more cards and this stamp lends itself to quick easy cards. I love it matched with the gingham (my favourite red)ribbon. I have made two cards so far one in Pool ink and one in Wet Cement.
There is a new challenge over at the "The Ribbon Girl Blog" and as the gingham ribbon is the focal point on my card I am adding these to the challenge.
One of our flickr group members the lovely Barb is also running a little card challenge so I will add these to the group.
Here is another quick card I have made using the gorgeous Hero Arts Holly stamp. I really must crack on now, I am so behind making my cards this year!!!
