Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!


Haven't you found that life has been so hectic over this festive season? I have needed about 6 pairs of hands over the past couple of weeks, trying to get everything done. Cards to make, gifts to wrap, plus there has been ta new batch of Creativity TV to film and the matter of a docrafts Christmas Party to attend to. what a hoot that was I can tell you. Unfortunately I didn't take any photographs of the night out (I didn't trust myself with my camera for fear of mislaying it, and let me tell you, it was a wise decision considering my state!) but I know people who did, and if they give their permission to share then share I shall!
Today I wanted to share with you some cards I made for friends and family. As th cards use the same layout, and all I had to change was the inage, they were relatively quick, although I always get carried away with colouring, and get lost in time! All the images have been coloured in with promarkers.

The Christmas tree is a stamp from Doodlebug , and the greeting is from Stampendous I think. I have had that stamp set for ages, and it's great as there is usually a greeting for all occasions. I love the hand written style too. I hav added some Anita's 3D glitter glue to the tree for a tinsel effect, and a couple of gems.

This is a stamp from Sugarloaf stamps. The greeting is computer generated, and I think the font is called FG Jeana.

I love this little house - I'd love to live there! This again is a doodlebug stamp and the greeting is computer generated.

Once I'd coloured the image, I added Anita's crystal 3D glitter glue to the roof and the snow covered ground, and added tiny gems to the tree.
Well, that's all for tonight, better get back to Wallace and Grommit - Curse of the WereRabbit, and playing transformers with Joseph - riviting...NOT! Hope you're having a wonderful Christmas time, spending time with the people you love.
Love, Clare
