Last Couple of Christmas Cards

Well I have completely finished all of my shopping now including the last bits which are always the irritating things. I got my turkey this morning and all my veg so now I can just relax and enjoy christmas, once again hope you all have a great christmas, I will be keeping an eye on all of your blogs over the festive period xxx
These are my final christmas cards I have made, I have used the free decoupage that I had in a magazine, on the first card I have used the snowflake embossing folder as the backing paper and layered onto mirri card, I have used ribbon which I got from QVC and the message is from craftwork cards. I have done similar on the bottom card but have used snowflake brads with this card, I had these with my crop-o-dile.

Big Flower

I was going to put this card into last weeks, paper take weekly challenge but there was some silver in it so didn't want to risk cheating on my 1st one :)
I got this big black flower with my ribbon kit from little silver hat, I have layered it with a prima flower and black brad. It is matted on white and black card and the backing paper is from DCWV glitter stack, it looks better in real life as there are lines of silver glitter, I have also used a message from craftwork cards

Paper Take Weekly Challenge

This is my first go at a challenge from http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/, I did promise myself I would start in the new year but could not resist the challenge this week.
The challenge was
"Black Tie! This weeks challenge is to make a black and white card! It can be for any theme/occasion but black and white only please!! Have fun!!Here's some from the DT!"
I have layered some black card onto a white square card and layered a black circle, which I did on my computer with a christmas font and punched a white scalloped circle, the dotty paper was out of a pad I bought earlier on in this year and I wrapped that with black ribbon and a bow to finish.

OHhhhhhhh :((

Just had an email from little silver hat to say they are not going to do the ribbons kits any more after February, I have only just joined last month and was very happy with the ribbons I received for December and was looking forward to a little surprise each month, such a shame,
I WILL be posting some cards tomorrow, so please pop back

Still here but very busy :(

Can not believe again how quickly the time goes, is it just me!!!
I have nearly finished all my christmas shopping and because work is so busy I have not had any time to make cards, but hopefully I will be able to very soon.
Thank you for popping by xx

Teddy Toppers

My teddy toppers have no cards to sit on because I have no time to make any for them, how sad it that, they are sooo cute too. These were free from a magazine (I love a nice freebie) and I made them up one evening thinking I would have loads of time over the next few days to make cards for them, but no luck, work comes first. It looks like I am going to have to sit and look at them for a while longer but thought I would share them with you

Kit has arrived

My Kit from Little Silver Hat has arrived this morning, I know I sound like a big kid, but I don't care :0) I like to get surprises and as much as I knew it was coming and what it looked like (had to check the website) it was still a lovely surprise, this is my first month and I could not believe the quality, even the packaging was lovely, just have to get my imagination going now to make some cards..........or maybe I might just keep them and look at them for a while longer :0)

My kit is on it's way,

Have just received an email to say my first kit from Little silver hat (http://www.littlesilverhat.co.uk/itemdetail.php?UniqueProductCode=DEC2007&type=kits) is on its way, and have just had a look on the website and I have to say it looks very nice, you get stamps too, I subscribed a while ago after seeing quite a few bloggers raving about it, and I am always a sucker for some pretty ribbon.
I have not made any cards this weekend, too busy with the house and shopping and all the other boring stuff, I did make some decoupage toppers which I had free out of a magazine, it is only the second time I have done decoupage but it was nice to sit on the settee and just cut them all out and then make them all up without having to get loads of bits out, so I have made all 6 toppers and will hopefully be making cards for them to go on tomorrow. I will hopefully get my kit aswell,
