More Christmas cards

I make slightly less fussy cards for other family members, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles and batch make these too.
The problem is I usually make too many and then can't remember who I've sent what to from one Christmas to the next. I really must get more organised.

Panels made using Cuttlebug EF.
Poinsettia dies from Spellbinders.
Snowflake dies from The Works
Branches punch.
Sentiments by Dovecrafts

The twins birthday

It was our twin great grandson's 2nd birthday on Sunday. I can't believe how quick the time has gone and how much they've grown up. They make me smile every time I see them.

The photo is pretty rubbish, sorry about that.
I've tried to make them as colourful and cheerful as possible so I've used Dovecraft Christmas papers.
The stamp is Lilly of the Valley coloured with Promarkers.
Computer generated sentiments and glitter card numbers to finish

Card for Tracy

We have lots of birthdays in December so I've been quite busy lately. First up it's my daughter's partner Tracy.

She loves warm colours so I've gone with coral and cream for the flowers from Wild Orchid.
Background paper is Swiss dots from The Lovely Studio in air force blue.
Doily die is Marianne designs and leaves are The Works.
Butterfly is a die from Memory Box cut from a scrap from the bit box.

Less is More # 385

Hello there,

I'm a bit late with my entry for the latest challenge at Less is More.
It's one layer time again and this time it's holiday cards.
Quite honestly I'm a bit fed up of holiday/ christmas cards at the moment. It seems to be all I've done for months, hopefully this will be my last one for this year. Yes...I know I'm a miserable git :D.

I won this stamp in a challenge at Pixies snippets playground ages and ages ago and to my shame this is the first time it's seen ink. So easy to colour and I think I'll be using it more next year.

Coloured with Promarkers- Leaf, pine, berry red and gold
