Christmas things

Well, I managed to get everything finished in time to catch the last posting date. Phew! Now that I know that some of them have reached their intended recipients, I can post them here. The Inkadinkado Angel has been one of my favourite Christmas stamps this year. I've kept this card quite simple so as not to detract from the image, which I've embossed with kaleidoscope EP. The greeting is by Craftwork Cards

Here's the angel again, stamped over "Silent Night" by Magnolia. The printed picture is from CraftyIndividuals' Christmas Miniatures book.

Next a few cards inspired by one of the beautiful samples on Sue Nelson's HeartPrints gallery. I liked the simplicity of it. (I needed something quick to do!) The one on the left has a Cuttlebug background and Nestabilities frames, and the image is from Woodware. The one on the right uses a background paper from the Elusive Images "Season's Greetings" CD from Graphicus. Nestie frames again. The image is one I've had for years, by PSX.  Same details for the third card, except that the image is from Woodware. The greetings on all three cards are computer generated.

When we went to the Sir Stampalot demo day, I was really taken with Brenda's    little decorated tins. I bought some blank ones to have a go at doing my own. Here's the one I made for my daughter's mum-in-law. It's coloured with alcohol inks, then stamped and embossed on top. The stamp is by Craftwork Cards. Inside I've put little photos of her three grandchildren, two of whom are also mine!
We will be going up to stay with them for Christmas, so no food shopping or cooking for me to do! I'll be on grandma duties so that my daughter can get on with things, and that's just fine by me!

Anyway, this will probably be my last post before Christmas, so to everyone in Blogland, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a very happy and peaceful New Year.

All very, very beautiful, especially the one you sent to me! Why didn't I buy the stamp set with the inkadinkado angel? I've seen so many lovely cards with it on. I'm hoping it's in a sale somewhere!

Oh Lynne,

So many makes to take in, all so different all equally beautiful.

I also adore that angel, but confess did not use her as much as I should have done - probably a moral there about too much craft stuff ? I really did like the design of my card though, very elegant.

Loving your tin as well. I ended up making a whole collection of them and personalised each one with pictures for all the girls plus one for Zachary who is 15 making it a 'guyish' as I could. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures as now they are all wrapped.

Merry Christmas Lynne.

A wonderful post to end the season on and I want to wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year too. I'll be on grandma duties at my daughter's too. Great innit?
