Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been online for a few days. 

I have been busy making all these Christmas cards and thankfully they are all finished.  So now it is time to start making cards for my family and friends - YIKES!!!!  
Not a lot of time left, so I better get my fingers working all over again.  I am just trying to clear up the crafting mess that has been made with making all the cards that I made.  Once that is done, I will start all over again.

I thought I would attach another couple of cards that I have made, (apart from the Christmas cards) one of which I will be entering into a challenge on the Kraftyhands blog.

I hope that everyone is all getting organised for Christmas and you are not too stressed out.

A penny slider card with 2 dinosaur eggs and when you open the eggs one is a dinosaur and the other is the birthday boy.

Liam loved his birthday card!

I will try and keep things up to date as much as I can, but at the moment the most important thing for me is to get all these Christmas cards finished and given to who they are to go to.

Hope to see you all again soon, and I also hope to get to know my blog and what I am really supposed to be doing. lol

Today has been spent making cards all day, my fingers are about to fall off.  I am making cards for a friend of mine and he has asked for quite a few to be made.  I will show you some of them that I have done.  Hopefully the pics will come out the right way.

This was made using die cuts Noel, 25, holly and berries. They were attached to the card using Pinflair glue and using distress ink for the swirls on the back of the card.

I made this card by using 3 strips of cardboard and heavily embossing it , once embossed and still wet I used a stamp to embed an image across it. Then I added the Merry Christmas and embossed it as well.

Die cut house, tree, lamp post, icicles and fence.  The house was doubled in order to put the curtains behind the windows and a piece of card behind the door window.  There was a piece of yellow card put behind the lamp post. Everything was brought together and glamour dust was used along with glitter glue to give it some sparkle.

This was my very first pan pastel attempt, and even though it isn't perfect  it showed Santa with his Reindeers quite clearly.  I used masks for the hills and sky, and used pan pastels across the card, once finished I stamped the trees and Santa and his Reindeers on the card and then finished it off with a spray of fixative.

This card was embossed and then the lamp post was die cut, the poinsetta's were part of a packet (bit of a cheat) I didn't even make them myself.  The Happy Christmas was then stamped with gold onto the card.
