I've been busy trying to get the last few Christmas cards finished and written - and have kept repeating the mantra to myself that I must start making my Christmas cards earlier next year so that I don't have a last minute panic! I seem to have so many ideas, stamps, papers, etc., and then nowhere near enough time to do all the ones I have to do! I think the problem is that I find it hard to get inspired for Christmas creations when the sun is shining and the weather is still warm! Anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of the 'quick' cards I've been doing - although when I start playing with papers, etc., the process is never that quick....
This one uses papers from LOTV and a sentiment stamp from Chocolate Baroque. The 'stitching' stamp is also from LOTV. The ribbon, snowflake charm and bell are from stash - and yes, the card does actually 'tinkle'!
This card also uses the LOTV papers, with the LOTV recipe stamps. I've added some distress inks, ribbon from stash and a sentiment stamp from Chocolate Baroque.
So quite simple cards, but I think they look ok.
I'm also busy crocheting (never enough hours in a day...) making a bag to order and I also made some cute stripy wristwarmers and sent them down to my daughter as I know she always likes to be snuggled up warm!
I've used some scraps of Stylecraft dk wool, and added a scallop edge to the top.
Very difficult to photograph one-handed whilst you're trying to pose a hand in a glove lol! But I've got a pair too, and I have to say they are cosy warm - and I can still use my phone or find things in my bag!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the remainder of your weekend and that you're a bit more organised for Christmas than me. Although Poppy the Cat is enjoying having the tree up - it's definitely good for hiding under and giving baubles an occasional bat!
