Three more Christmas cards!

Wow!! I'm doing well for a change!
Not going to be panicking at the last minute like I usually do at this rate! lol

Here are my latest cards.....

The DP is from the 'Christmas Matstack' by DCWV. 
There are 135 sheets of 4.5"x6.5" papers in it! Brilliant!

The poinsettia is, once again, a Spellbinder's one and the bauble is, I think a Memory Box die.
(My good pal Jackie lent me her die ages ago and I cut loads of 'em)!
I added some gold Glamour Dust to the poinsettia and to the scroll on the paper to add a bit of zing.

This one uses a die and stamp from Justrite.
The EF is a Sizzix one and of course, I used the Spellbinder's Poinsettia die again.
It would've been rude not to! Ha Ha.
Some little pearls hither and yon and more Glamour Dust for sparkle.

Guess what! Yep! It's that poinsettia again! Ha Ha!
Bored with it yet? 
(Might use a different die next time, just to give this set a rest).

The DP is from the same DCWV Matstack.
Perfect for this size of card.

Well, I need to get ready foe mine and my best mate's trip to our smashing buddies in Derby for our  Christmas crafting day.
It's been ages since we got together and I'm having withdrawal symptoms!

I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful day!

Hubby's birthday card

Making this at daft O'clock last night!
(Too busy making Christmas cards). Ooops!

He did get it this morning though, so it was on time, lol

I coloured the pooch to look like Mac, one of our dogs.
My friend Jackie has made Alan a card with a photo-shopped photo of Harvey on bless her, 
so I thought it only fair that Mac should make an appearance. 
The stamp is 'For Father' from SU!
Coloured with Copics.

Plain and simple, just like me! lol

Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits enormously.


A few more Christmas cards

to all my much loved American friends!
I hope you are all enjoying the celebrations.

Poor Queen Peach, Kathy has 'flu! Get well soon my friend!

On to my latest offerings....

 This one is made with a Spellbinders Poinsettia Nestie
The sentiment is from PKSC-11

 This one uses a Sizzix embossing folder.
(I added Glamour Dust to the reindeer's reigns)

This little fella is my new favourite snowman!
He's from Peachy Keen's PK-149
Coloured with Copics as per usual.

It's hubby's birthday today, (tomorrow if you're in the States).
I'll upload his card in the morning.

I've been busy..honest!

I've been slaving over a hot craft table making Christmas cards!
I'm a tad more on schedule this year. 
Last year I was still making last minute ones on the 22nd!!!! Never again!
I DID intend starting in July, but I just can't get all Christmassy in summer.
Anyway, here are some I've been busy making. 
I didn't get round to posting them on here I was so absorbed. DUH!

I will post more tomorrow

All three are from PCSC-11
    Can't get enough if this KERR-YUTE reindeer!

 Yep! Here she is again!!
The same only different! lol
Instead of a bow, she's got bells on.
(Actually, in the real world, I think it's only male reindeer that have antlers), 
but in MY world, anything goes! Ha Ha!

One last time! Pretty as a picture!
(Thank Heavens for the svgs that go with the sets. I'd be lost without them)!

Well I hope you love my little herd of reindeer.
Thanks for dropping in!

It's a blue Christmas

Only on my card though! lol

Kept it simple for a change.
I printed out a sheet of  Pink Petticoat Christmas patterned paper/card called 'Berry'.
Looks like mistletoe.
The embossing is a Cuttlebug one. 'Snow' I think.
I have all my EFs in a huge ring binder and have taken them all out of their packages,
So can't remember what a lot of them are called. Duh!!
The sentiment is from PKSC-11 
Poinsettia is a Spellbinder's die, sponged with Brilliance ink.
Hope you like my 'simple' card today.
Back soon with more Christmas cards.

I'm not late, I'm very early!

Oops! I tinkered with some Halloween cards and totally forgot to post 'em!
It's because we don't really do Halloween.
(That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Ha Ha).

So, VERY early for next year, here are some Halloween cards.....

Haunted house -PKSC-09
Tombstones are ovals cut down and nicked in places.
(Kim Score showed me how last year).
Bats - Martha Stewart punch 
Cut out a 'hill' and extended the path from the house.

Pumpkins - PK-620
Martha Stewart PAP Spider Web

Same stamp used slightly differently.

Small pumpkin - PK-612
Large pumpkin and greeting - PKSC-09
Bats - Martha Stewart punch
I cut two with Spellbinders Tombstone Nestabilities shapes.
Scored one about 1" from top on one and glued to the back of the first one.
Cut an extra one for the 'shelf'.
Copics used on the pumpkins.
Sponged the edges of the tombstone with white ink.
Nothing like being prepared, is there! *wink*.
