Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!

Morning all!

I'm really enjoying my week off of work. I've got some christmas shopping done, now I just have to start wraping it! It seems such a mammoth task that I just keep putting it off! Yesterday I had a marathon crafting session and managed to finish off my christmas cards. I got 12 made, I did 4 designs and made 3 of each! I had a little production line going! Now I just have to write them all! Think I've around 50 in total to do! With only 16 days left until the big day I'd best get on with it!

Onto today's card, one which I made yesterday.

Another using the same LO but slightly different arrangement of the materials, well I had some scraps to use up!!

Here is the simply decorated inside, I did all my cards with this inside, I just adore the sentiment, so simple and I love the font!


CS: SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobler

Paper: SU Jolly Holidays

Image: Elzybells (Sadly retired), coloured with koh-i-noors & sansodor

Sentiment: Paula Pascual christmas sentiments, SU Contempo Christmas (inside)

Tools: Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder, SU Ink in Choc Chip and Cherry Cobbler

Misc: Sponges for inking/distressing the edges, Glitter

My other half inspired me with these cards. He said that all my recent christmas cards were a bit 'old fashioned' and could I make some like last year (I don't think he's a fan of the baubles!). Now by that I knew he meant some cute, character cards. So I used the opportunity to use some of the new christmas stamps I purchased when Elzybells was closing. So sad that Elizabeth had to close her doors but I think I bought enough of her stock to keep me going for a few years!!

I kept all of my designs quite clean and simple as this is the style I love best and I also used my new stash that I have bought recently. I just adore the new Cherry Cobbler colour that SU has brough out this year and the yummy new Jolly Holiday papers! I love these colours together for christmas!

Well I hope you're all getting organised and nearly ready for christmas! All this preparation for one day, it's crazy, but so worth it!

Thanks for stopping by .

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
