Santa Claus

Here is another one of the great Christmas stamps that are available at Cuddly Buddly by Karen Middleton.
This is 'Santa On A Bauble' I have coloured my image with SU! inks again will have to practice a bit more but am pleased with my first attempt, just need to find more time to play. The papers are 'Pretty Classy Christmas' digi papers which are great for traditional Christmas cards. 

This card is pretty plain and simple I am finding these cards much more my style than adding lots of embellishments which look good on other peoples cards but awful on mine.

I hope you have all had a nice weekend? I work Saturday so my weekend is Sunday/Monday as they are my two days off together. I have been looking around the garden centres today at all the Christmas gifts to get a few idea's into my head for people, I intend being organised this year :)

Mrs Christmas

Well its been a while since I posted a card, after coming back off holiday its taken me a while to get  back to normal. This is one of the new releases on Cuddly Buddly today by the very talented Karen Middleton this is 'Mrs Christmas', think she has been making a Christmas pud for Father Christmas no wonder he is so well rounded lol... I have coloured my image with SU inks and blended with SU blender pens, I am quite impressed with my first attempt :) I needed a nice Christmas red and didn't have one so hence me trying inks. I buy my SU! products from my lovely friend Linda if anyone fancies trying the inks and blender pens.

The papers are Cuddly Buddly Patchwork red great for traditional Christmas cards. The sentiment ticket is FREE from Cuddly Buddly. Kim has generously put lots of FREE digi's on the Cuddly Buddly site for you to print, no excuses now for not getting those Christmas cards done, especially as the weeks are whizzing by.

I also have some exciting news which some of you may of spotted already. I have been asked to join the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Team, how lucky am I to be joining such a fab team of crafters.
