blue baubles

hi all!
hasn't the weather turned awful so quick?! we have had our fire on already!!sad to see the end of summer but i can get on with my christmas cards without guilt now!!
i have bought a kit which i never do but i couldnt resist-it is the crafters companion snowman/snowdog kit-gorgeous it is!! there could be some posts when i have made more cards!

todays card is a quick one with some embossing. i am trying to get into crafting for myself as well as the blog design team!
the bauble is a free stamp from a while back and the ribbon from lidl. the paper is from my stash!

thank you for looking! sorry about lack of capitals and punctuation-doing this one handed while holding the baby zac!

goosey goosey!

Hi all

Time for another design team card. The theme at creative card crew is embossing (wet or dry).
I have used an image from Imagine That called Gertie Goose-summer. It features a barbecueing goose which is really cute too!

I have used dry embossing with some freebie folders from a magazine.
Hope you like it and join us for our challenge. The prizes are from Imagine That and Mariannes Designs

Thank you for any comments you may make.
