Winter Wonderland

This card reminds me a of a winter wonderland and I wish I could just step in there and live in that cosy house for Christmas - well it has our surname on the letterbox already! Can you not FEEL that Christmas spirit? This is my card for my girls :-)
Thanks for looking xx

It's almost here..

........the big day that is. Are you all ready? I was dreadfully unorganised this year but it's all coming together, thank goodness! Haven't even spared a thought for the food shopping, let alone bought anything at all edible, but hopefully Sainsbury's will leave a few bits of the shelves for me and my family, then it will be shopping trolleys drawn at dawn and the clashing of the titans!!

The K&Co Light Ideas Grand Adhesion on my card above lights up, just like the Christmas tree yesterday. I do love this range, they really make a card extra special. Pop back tomorrow when I will have another Christmas card to show you :-)
Thank you for visiting my little corner in Blogland xx

More Christmas Cards

I am very late in sending out cards this year but many have now been sent and there are just a few more to make. Here are two of the ones just made; they are almost identical but there are differences :o) The Christmas tree is a K&Co Light Ideas so lights up at the touch of a button.

You can see some of the lights are flashing here as the display races around the tree.

Bye for now x

Christmas Pocket Tag Card

The challenge today was set by Lou, and this is what she wanted:

I thought you might be fed up of Christmas cards by now and we all need tags at this time of year, so make a tag to go onto a gift, it doesn't have to be a Christmas tag as long as it's a tag that's the only specification. If you fancied making something else ( a card even) you still can as long as it has a tag on it.

Well I decided to make a Christmas card as I never get tired of making them :o) This one has a pocket inside that holds a large tag. The reverse of the tag has another pocket which can hold a voucher or money. Great for Christmas presents.

Inside here shows the pocket holding the tag:

....and here is the reverse side of the tag, which itself has a pocket for holding a voucher or money:

Pop over to Dottie's World and see what the other DT members have come up with :o)
Oh I better tell you what products I used for this card:
Dottie and George images are from the Christmas bundle (love it!!)
Papers are Dream Street Papers Wonderland. I also cut a snowman and reindeer form the paper for the tag.
Embellishments are K&Co Swell Noel and Christmas Cheer, plus an Imaginisce Frosty Snowflower and Basic Grey Fibre.
DCWV self-adhesive ribbon
I have used white acrylic paint (paint dabber) and red ink for the edges.
