Thank You Cards!

 At last I have found time for a little crafting, its been such a busy few weeks, I have missed having some me time in the craft room!!  Here are a couple of Thank you cards I have been working on.  The top one is using the Hero Arts Butterfly Thank You from the Greetings set placed on the Newspaper background.  I have stamped the butterfly again and coloured with Distress Inks before coating with Glossy Accents and adhering   with glue just down the butterflies body so the wings can be raised.  I have also added a strip if Washi Tape part of my win from Tones blog!!

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!!

Merry Christmas to all my followers!!

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

Its that cute snowman again!!!

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.

Simple Christmas Cards!!

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!!!
