Christmas Cards

Here is a selection of the special cards I made this year for my family.

They were made using a mixture of water colouring, stamping, embossing and fussy cutting. At one time I used to make all the Christmas cards I sent, but with that being around 120 + I now only make for those I know will appreciate them (family & close friends) for the rest I buy charity cards. The rush to finish is now almost over, only 8 more sleeps to go!! At the risk of being accused of plagiarism (from Strictly Come Dancing) Keep crafting!

 Only ten sleeps to go!

I know that Christmas is nearly upon us but that doesn't stop people from having birthday celebrations,so I wanted to share a birthday card with you that I recently made for a male friend who owns and sails a boat regularly.

It was stamped with Scene-it stamps from Hobby Art Stamps on W. H. Smith watercolour paper and coloured with Tombow pens and Tim Holtz distress markers used as watercolours. I mounted it on shiny blue card and then onto the card itself.

I hope you like it.
