Christmas cards

I recently read an article Susan at Simplicity (love her cards) had written up about Christmas cards and how digital people are in giving them.  In the main I agree I love making and sending cards because I know I love receiving those heartfelt Christmas wishes of goodwill.  

However, I've started thinking about this so much more as my Mum made a comment the other day that she would email out more of her Christmas cards/letters this year as the cost of postage has gone up so much.  She's right but I guess I see that as my Christmas pressie to those people and it's the thought that counts so I want to show them as much thought as possible!

A little note

Hi all, just a quickie, here's a card I created using a free digi from Torico at Birdie Brown.  Coloured with copics, a computer generated sentiment and then layered on red paper, simples!

Morning all!  Just thought I would show off my latest card for My Mums Craft Shop.  They have a bit of a theme going on over there and if you fancy winning a surprise you just need to comment on the DT's posts!

I created the background by using a moon and stars from the Paper Smooches - Metropolis in different memento inks and I don't think the photo shows it but Mr Monster is popped up on foam pads and his eyes are shiny as I've added some glossy accents.

My image is a dscontinued monster from Pollycraft - sorry!

Here are some of the products I used:

Just recently we got a bit muddled with the girls bibles at church, their friend went home with Jess' so I decided to make bookmarks to identify them.

The girls choose the ribbons and felt colours from my stash. I let them cut the letters out using my Big Shot and the By The Letters & Uppercase die-namics They fabric glued the felt to the ribbon and once it was dry I used my sewing machine to add a zig zag stitch to keep them on.

and here's a close up:

Fimo creations.

Here's a few more of my fimo creations! The top two I've turned into magnets and the bottom two I put holes in to make into pendants, i just haven't got round to sorting them.  (I'm sorry for the dodgy photos)
