A late card!!

I had planned for yesterdays post to be my final before Christmas but as I sat in my craft room yesterday wrapping some gifts I had an idea and this card came to life.
Again a very simple card using an embossing folder and die cuts all from Simon Says.  Also added lots of tiny gems for sparkle.

I always have a bunch of snowflakes already cut in a box so this came together really quickly, I then decided to add the vellum for the sentiment base.

 I am adding this card to the challenge at Lets Squash It "Your Call"

Merry Christmas!!

Another quick card using the fabulous "Chunky Merry" die from Simon Says and "Holly Side "stripes from Poppy Stamps.  Also added an embossed panel using a really old embossing folder from Cuttlebug called "Swiggles"! I have coloured the holly with my Zig markers,

I shall add this card to the current challenge at Christmas Kickstart "Anything Christmassy"  and the SSS Flickr challenge Anything Goes"

I would like to wish all my blogging friends a 

Here's hoping for a healthy and happy  2022

Still making Christmas Cards!

Still have a few last minute Christmas cards to make so went for a fairly simple design.  The background is embossed with the SSS Crystal Distortion embossing folder, I then added the die cut SSS Chunky Merry cut with gold glitter card.  last I added some silver snowflakes and gems.

 I am adding this card to both the "Lets Squash It "Your Call challenge, and the SSS Flickr Group challenge "Anything Goes"
 Lots of last minute bits to do before Christmas, just have my fingers crossed that Christmas goes ahead this year and doesn't get cancelled at the last minute like last year because of Covid!!

Have a great week

Winter Snow!

Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean are my favourite combination of Distress Oxides and they make a fabulous background for snowflakes!

A simple distressed background with added flicks of white gouache paint and stamped snowflakes in gold silver and white embossing.  The die cut  snowflakes are from Simon Says and are glittery and shiny.

I am adding this card to the Christmas Kickstart challenge " If its Christmassy Link it up!" and the SSS Flickr challenge also "Anything Goes"

 I am off to visit my daughter and new Grandchild Eva next week so my daughter can have some down time and get her hair cut.  Very excited!!

Have a great week

Holly Berries!

I recently won this Holly Side Strips die from Poppy Stamps and couldn't wait to have a play with it. 
I die cut the holly and coloured with my Zig markers.  The Chunky Merry die is from Simon Says and I decided to stick with the red, green and white theme.  Just added red gems for sparkle.

Such an easy card to make but so bright and cheerful.

 I shall add this card to the current SSS Flickr group challenge "Winter Wishes".

We are off to do some Christmas shopping today just hoping the shops aren't too busy! Have a great day.
