warm wishes

Hi everyone!apologies for the poor photo-no laptop so doing this on my mobile!
I made this for a christmas pressie using some yankee candles i got in a sale(hence why theyre summer colours!).
The stamp is a freebie. Snowflakes are memory box and all coloured with pro markers.

I did it for

sparkles christmas challenge-anything but a card and hope it fits the bill as it is actually still partly a card but is a gift also-i say the card bit is a tag!

black christmas tree

Hi everyone!
It's been horrible wet weather here for 48 hours but it's finally stopped and the sun has been out!
I madea quick card this morning based on a sketch by Jen at sketch saturday. Here it is:

The tree die is a magazine freebie and the papers are DCWV. Stamp is magazine freebie and the stars are a memorry box die. I was inspired also by stars and stripes at holly jolly christmas.

I liked the colours so much that I decided to do 2! This is the 2nd which is almost identical except I decided to add a bit more!

This is the inside of both.
Hope you like it , and thank you for may comments you may make.

white christmas

Hi all!
I have had a go at an all white card-and I like it!! So much so that I will be doing a few more as they're so quick! Pete says they're very elegant-like you would see in M & S! That was enough for me!
I used a freebie embossing strip that came in a magazine this week-cards and papercraft I think.
Snowflakes are memory box. I have used some white shimmery card on plain card and used my hoogie to put a square on it.
I have done another one which I embossed the middle piece again on shimmery card. I heat embossed some snowflakes on it and embossed it.
The embossed frame is from my stash-got them at NEC last year.

Hope you like them!
thank you for any comments you make, and have a fab evening!

christmas cake

Evening eveybody! It's a windy one here but I'm tucked up all cosy in my jammies!
This card I am a bit unsure about! I'm not sure it's christmasy enough. I initially thought the paper was christmasy because of the candy canes but as I started to do something I had to add the ribbon to make it more festive. I hope it has worked. It is based on a sketch #2 at christmas stampin all year long.
I have used an old Dovercraft stamp set of cupcakes which I stamped onto the matching paper and also onto some mirri card, and then fussy cut. It has various toppings and bottoms in it whcih is good. The cadle is from another freebie set from a magazine and the canes are from a MME christmas set. the sweet is from a freebie set from a magazine from ages ago. I got the snowman ribbon ages ago.
I added a red strip with a yellow piece underneath. I have used a X cut border punch on this.
I have also stamped the inside.
have a great evening everyone! I am looking forward to getting lots of crafting done this weekend as my little man is off the grandmas for the weekend!!
