new challenge

Finally a Christmas post *bah humbug* from me.

Using a new freebie Reindeer die, I made these cute little Christmas cards - the envelopes were part of a 'thank you' card/envelope pack from a magazine, not used the cards as they have a heart shaped die cut out of them, probably find a use for them someday, but the envelopes came in handy!

Entering into a new blog to me,  merry monday christmas challenge blog, ironically close to Christmas, but hoping I will play every week and get ahead for next year.

Used Creata Christmas backing papers, layered onto plain white cards, which were off cuts from when I make my 6x6 cards. The reindeer paper/card is snippets from my bits n bob drawer, where I put every leftover little bit of paper/card once I've finished my projects. Its a big drawer!! I never cease to be surprised at what I can find in there.
Embellished with peel offs, sentiments and shiny *g*
Perfect little cards for posting to Mr G's relatives this year.

  1. Oh these are delightful Amanda! Isn't it great to do a little batch of similar cards - I'm a great fan of 'batch baking'. And you'll enjoy playing along with Merry Monday too. So pleased you're coming back to play with us - do remember to say in a comment if you want to be in the prize draw. It's all explained in my blog post each Sunday - basically it's so I don't find that a winner didn't really want the prize in the first place - just makes life easier for me.

    Have you been coerced into the Playground Nativity Play yet? I hear plans are afoot already and a couple of the girlies are holding 'audition's - snigger, totally mad! Sometimes I despair :)
