Christmas Cards!!!!!!!

For those who don't know me, I do not make cards. I figure that I have enough crafty addictions, follow enough blogs without adding the whole card making craft as well. And part of my minimal christmas card send out involves buying charity cards, this year I think they were from The Breast Cancer association. So no handmade cards from me.

Until Now..

And I think this will still be a one off.

A number of planets aligned for me to come to this decision.
1. I have recently purchased a number of very cute images form both The LilyPad and from Little Dreamer designs.
2. My Cocoa daisy Kit arrived and it had some very sparkly ribbon, yummy mist and a wonderful snowflake stamp that needed to be used right away!!!
3. I received a lovely handmade card from Libeeti (sweet girl!!!)and thought it was rather nice to receive something made from scratch.

so here they are - all hybrid cards, digi images printed and cut out. Mostly pleased with the result, fairly simple but then again I am a simple girl....

The kids loved this one...


This features the snowflake stamp from Cocoa Daisy, with
the chipboard snowflake covered in german glass glitter
here is the layering in detail, some
embossing, some misting and some stamping-
can't beat an owl -
And I was starting to run out of ideas when I realised that there were card sketches in the big wide world and I snagged this one via Tina's blog. It was last weeks sketch from Freshly made. (too late for their comp but like the sketch)
Ok, one or two to go, now to post them...

have a good one. xx

Karen!!!!! These are darling!!!! Watch it.....I swear cards can be addicting, I'm not a card maker either...and heaven knows I have plenty of other bad habits to finance....lol. But sometimes a card can get me back into my screappy zone and i can almost always find enough time to sit and fiddle with scraps to make a cared.......and my big thing this coming up year is to use what I got.....YIKES!!!!!!

I'm so glad you got my card, and that it arrived before Christmas.
I'm not a card make either, but from time to time I do enjoy making them. and it's a great way to use those scraps from layouts I'm making.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
