Merry Christmas!

Morning all.

Well I am really feeling christmassy this morning as I have opened up the curtains to find it has snowed over night, several inches. I love the look of snow, all clean and crisp, I just don't like having to go out in it, or driving in it! I don't know how those of you in Canada, USA, Europe cope with huge snowfalls!

So whilst I am feeling all christmassy I though I'd show you another of the christmas cards I have made.


Materials

CS: SU Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler

Image: SU Contempo Christmas

Sentiment: SU Occasional Greetings

Tools: Choc Chic, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze ink (SU), SU scalloped border punch, piercing tool, Choc Chip marker, SU Ornament punch

Misc: Sponges for distressing, Adhesive pearls from stash


I also made a couple of quick notelet cards, using some left over scraps. You always need a few cards for those last minute people who you've forgot about and then they send you a card (I'm sure you know what I mean!)





I love this colour combination, I think it cpompliments each other so well. I've never used blue with red for christmas cards before, it's usually the more traditional red and green, but I really like it, and I hope you do too!

Well thanks for stopping by today. I need to scoot now as I need to get my bag packed. I'm off to my mum's today, we're going to the local church christmas fair and then we're staying overnight and having an indian takeway. I've also made some mince pies so I'll take them for us to have with a cuppa!

Have a great weekend everyone whatever you're up to!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
