All Things Magical and Mythical #16 Featuring Snowflake Fairy Princess from Whimsy Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. As you can probably tell, I am in full Christmas card making mode now. I could probably do with a few more, but need to count to see how many I have actually made! I think it is quite a few now! How are yours Christmas cards coming on if you are making them? Anyway...today's post features the adorable Snowflake Fairy Princess from Whimsy Stamps, which is such a quite wintery digi stamp. I thought I would go for some icy blues and silvers on this one.  Recipe: Stamps: Snowflake Fairy Princess from Whimsy Stamps, Snowman Sentiments from C.C.

Scene It Sunday #70 Featuring Shake It Up Polar Bears from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Good morning and happy Sunday - the last one of the month too! For today's card I am using another one of my stamp sets that I have had for years and only used once! No idea why I haven't used it more as it is such a sweet set!  I thought I would make a slimline card for these cuties and then saw the challenge from My Favorite Things to make a mini slimline, meaning the card measures 3 x 6 inches. Not a size I would normally make as it is so tiny compared to my usual 6 inch square cards, but it came out so cute! I love it!  This card is for My Favorite Things Mini Slimline Challenge Shopping Our Stash Challenge #459 Triple Threat (I have the phrase Let It Snow 3 times!)

Something Else on Saturday #132 Featuring Oddball Sugar Plum Fairy from Stamping Bella

Good morning and happy Saturday! I can't quite believe it is going to be December next week. I still have a load of Christmas presents to buy for my boyfriend, but other than that I think I have everything else, unless anything last minute crops up. Food shopping has been ordered as well, so we're now just waiting on the tree to be delivered so I can decorate it!  Anyway this week's card uses the adorable Oddball Sugar Plum Fairy from Stamping Bella which I actually bought last year but never used! I am really trying this year to make cards with stamp sets I already own, but I have bought a few new ones here and there! I went for a completely plum colour combo on this one as my best friend's favourite colour is purple, so this card will be for her!  This card is for Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 47 Anything Goes Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #510 Anything Goes Creative Knockouts Challenge #429 Christmas Delights Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything G

All Things Magical and Mythical #15 Featuring Jolly Elf from Sweet November Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. This week, I thought I would share this cute little elf from Sweet November Stamps, swinging on his candy cane.

Today I am sharing the card I made for my Mother-in-law's Christmas card - she loves cats so I just had to use this adorable Christmas Kitty digi stamp from All Dressed Up.
