Merry Christmas, to one & all :)

Hi to my little Crafty Christmas Crackers! :-)

I hope you're all ready for Christmas? I am! Just! Don't know quite how, but so glad I am...I've had this nasty, coldy, coughy, sore-throaty thingy that everyone seems to have had lately - & I've felt really rough for over a week!   I thank my darling children & hubby for sharing their germs with me! And, to put the Christmas icing on the cake, so to speak, my fatigue/fibro has kicked in big & quote a Christmas song....'Oh, it's the most wonderful time of the year.....! lol

Anyho-ho (see what I did there?) - this is my last post of 2013 - I shall leave you all with a last card of this year...a white on white Christmas card to my Mother!  I have loved making the white on white cards but I am so looking forward to seeing colour in my cards next year!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s):

Delicious doodles challenge - White Christmas

So, I wish you all a fabby Christmas, & for those feeling poorly over the holidays, I wish you well very soon!


SEE YOU IN 2014!!!

Good Morning, Crafty Peeps!

An early entry for me! Well, a scheduled post so I could still be snoozing away! lol

I was busy yesterday, making more Xmas cards from my Hunkydory kit - I will show pics of them on another post.  I have also been creating some 'white on white' Christmas cards, along with these cards below.  I am trying my 'less is more' which is hard when you're naturally an 'over the top' card maker LOL.  The inside of these cards have the same embossed Centura Pearl matching coloured card inside and the same die cut as on the fronts to write message on plus a small stamped 'Happy Christmas'  sentiment.  I'm going with with no sentiments on the front, just letting the cards 'speak for themselves'!


Christmas Tree die (free with a magazine)
Cosmic shimmer for pearls.
Happy Christmas stamp (from stash)

So, that's today's post done (rubs hands together), I'm off for a scoot round blog land to see what wonderful creations you've been making whilst drinking my cupper (which I will be doing, I promise - it's a habit thing lol) and then on to more card making!

Have a great day!

Until next time,

Easel (ly) made!

Good Morning Crafters!

Hope everyone's day has got off to a good start? Mine has, I am actually sitting at my craft desk as we 'speak' making the last of my Christmas cards (as well as blogging this!)

My little make today is here...& it's from Hunkydory's Stylish Season Luxury card collection.  I was fortunate to buy these kits when they were on Create & Craft, along with the inserts.  They really are beautiful & the artwork gorgeous.  I have ended up with two lots of these as about a month later I won the WHOLE set in a competition!

I measured, cut, layered & stuck & ended up with this little creation!
