A couple of Christmas Cards

I've been making four Christmas cards for my regular Tuesday workshop, here are a couple of them, the other two can be found over at Crescent Stampin'..........

I've used stamps from my stash, one is more traditional in the reds and greens, but the other is a slightly quirky colour scheme for a Christmas card.................but, i actually quite like it makes a change don't you think? I've used some popular markers to colour my images! and added some Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of sparkle :)
The sentiments and backgrounds are from Stampin' Up! .......also the satin ribbon and most of the cardstock. I've used my SU border punches and also the plain and scallop ovals...............if i can help you out with any of the Stampin' Up! supplies please let me can also browse the catalogue over at Crescent Stampin'................Enjoy the rest of your weekend ;-D

See you soon,

A note to say.......

.... that unfortunately i have had to resign from all my current DT commitments. I will be having a little tidy up here, so if there is anything you wish to 'bookmark' then please do so :)

I have enjoyed playing along with all the different challenges and of course i will be continuing my sketch challenge every fortnight over at Carol's Sketch Fun

My main activity however will be on my Stampin' Up! site Crescent Stampin
I hope lots of my lovely followers will maybe visit me over there :) Hopefully when i get a bit more 'settled' i will have some regular tutorials for you and i usually have a special offer or two!

I would like to say a big thanks to all the lovely people that pop in to see me, the comments are always appreciated and are a boost to the system, especially after a bad day at the office :)

Big Hugs to you all........
