More Christmas cards

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all managing to stay warm on this cold and frosty morning.
I managed to get some time to craft over the weekend and I think I have finished all my Christmas cards now. These are the last ones I have made.
This first one is for my Great - Nephew and is made from a downloadable sheet from Craftsuprint. At least I think that is where I bought it from but if anyone knows differently please let me know so I can credit the correct source.

This next one I have made from a die cut a friend gave me

Card Group

Last Saturday was my monthly card group meeting and this time Janice inspired us with these two lovely cards. The first one could be used for lots of different occasions so I have left it without a sentiment for now until I have someone in mind to send it to. The second one is of course a Christmas card so is another to add to my collection

October Post Cards

Well it's another month and that means it's time for the next post card swap over at Chocolate Baroque and this month the choices were Marigold or Purple Heather. I chose to go down the marigold route as I didn't really have stamps that fitted either theme. Anyway here are my postcards and I hope they are ok

Another Christmas Card

I'm on quite a roll now with my Christmas cards although I must make a couple of birthday cards in the next week or so and also I need to get my next set of Postcards done for the swap. However at the weekend I made this Christmas Card using a new Sue Wilson die from Creative Expressions.

More Christmas cards

On Thursday I managed to have some time to play and I was able to put together some more Christmas cards. I'd managed to get them cut out the evening before while watching the TV so i got 12 done in a fairly short amount of time. I did 6 each of these two designs. I got these from Craftsuprint a couple of years ago but had never got around to using them, I didn't know if they still do them but you can find the Craftsuprint site here

First attempt

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to go to Alexandra Palace to the craft show which was great and while I was there I treated myself to the Clarity Groovi Plate starter kit. It was wonderful to watch Barbara Gray demonstrating this great piece of kit and I was really inspired by her. this is my first attempt at using it. I know its far from perfect and I need lots more practice but i did really enjoy using it
