Christmas cards started!!



Decided to make a start on my Christmas cards, and after seeing lots of inspiration on the Simon Says blog hop made this card using the Star Flower background stamp.  Embossed in silver onto watercolour card and then coloured with Distress Stains and Zig Markers. The sentiment is an old one from Hero Arts.
I shall add this to the Simon Says Wednesday Blog "Anything Goes " challenge and also the Simon Says Flickr group challenge #79 "Stamp It".





This is a card using the Honey Bee stamp "Country Blooms" and Simon Says "Square Stitched "Die and "Thanks"Die.  I shall also add this to the "Anything Goes" challenge at Simon Says and also the Love Cards Flickr Group challenge which is also "Anything Goes" this month.

I have also linked it to the current Naughty or Nice Challenge, which is a new one for me.


Its a wet and windy day here in Dorset, seems like summer is over and Autumn is definitely on its way. I love summer but Autumn brings more time to craft so its not all bad LOL.

Hugs
Sally

Great cards, Sally. I love the Christmas card, but your sweet 'thank you' card has captured my heart as it's gorgeous! BTW, it wouldn't look out of place on the current Naughty or Nice challenge, Jo x

I really like the bright colors and blending on your first cards. It is a lovely Christmas card. The flowers are cheerful on your second card and I like the design and stitching.
