A few Christmas Cards

I made a few more Christmas cards today to add to my collection, ready for next month.

This first card is for La-La-Lands Crafts Challenge to use mauve, silver and white. I just bought this stamp last week and Marci was just dying to get inked up for this one! You can see all the cards in their gallery here.

My next card is for Just Magnolia's Challenge #132 to use red, white and black or grey and for Taylored Expressions Sketch #150.  I totally love this Twinkle background stamp - it was one of those re-discovery sets. I bought it ages ago, used it a few times and then moved onto to other new stuff as you do and when I was hunted for a stamp set this morning, I came across it in my PTI box and dug it out! I think I'll be using this one quite a bit for my Christmas cards this year too!

And my final card for this post is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #73. This sketch so did not work for me! I tried various different images and ribbons before settling on this one, but I'm still not overly keen on it. I guess you have to sometimes try things out which you're not comfortable with!

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I think your Waltzingmouse sketch card is lovely! I really like how you made the ribbon "tie" the candies together.
