Christmas is coming!! Let the card making begin !!!!


Last week I traveled to London for some wedding Dress shopping with my soon to be daughter in law,  her mum and my daughter Francesca. Woo Hoo !! We stopped of at Liberty's and there Christmas shop was in full swing.  It was magical they really know how to dress to impress !!!


Lots of amazing baubles all colour coded.


Its a very special place.


Such an historic building too!  I have been inspired and here starts the Christmas great card make!



This CAS design ( picture with a bauble I couldn't resist lol) .  I used a cuttlebug frame embossing folder and the Hero Arts "Colour Layered Christmas Tree".  I am adding this to the "Clean and Simple" challenge over at Simon Says. Also the "Texture"  challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

After months away from blogging at last I can enter challenges again. 

This second card is also CAS just made with Die Cuts and a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I will also add this to this weeks Simon Says Challenge and the Merry Monday Challenge 213. ( thanks Betty ).

And if you are wondering we found THE dress and its stunning!!

Lovely, lovely cards Sally...especially loving your red & white card with the beautiful embossing folder! (Think I NEED to find that!) Loved all the photo's of the Christmas ornaments...looks very similar to a store here in Michigan called Bronner's in Frankenmuth! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Merry Mondays! :0)

What a fantastic store, it sure puts you in the mood. Your cards are lovely. I really like both of the embossing folders you used. The bauble is gorgeous, I can see why you had to have it.
