Merry Christmas Everyone!

I've been such a bad blogger lately - Christmas has just taken over everything and really I should have started making christmas cards in April rather than wait until November! Maybe next year! Here's some of the results of my absence...

This grandad card was made using a very cute dowload from the DigiStamp Boutique. I love these cute designs - I think this one is by Sally-Ann Hancock. It was coloured in with normal felt-tip pens from WHSmith but now santa has brought me some pro-markers I am going to have a lot of fun experimenting.

I made this quick card with some lovely papers that I got with Making Cards magazine last year. Lovely christmassy colours and an extra bit of bling with a diamante on the bauble.

More digital downloads - this time the curly trees from Pink Petticoat. So easy to colour and very girly. I decoupaged the hearts and made extra to stick down the side.

This furry Christmas Tree card was made for a work colleague's daughter who wanted something purple and bling! The tree is simply a triangle of card wound with fluffy wool and purple diamantes added as baubles.

This bauble card is my fave - I got a card making kit from The Works and just added diamantes to the ready cut baubles. I added very thin ribbons and peel-off stars and the result looks much better than this picture!

Here's wishing anyone who cares to read my crafting adventures a very Merry Christmas and best wishes and lots of crafting in 2010!
