Fa la la la la...

Hello Hello,

Hope every ones busy getting on with Christmas festivities:-) I am too... Tomorrow some cherry pies as well as some cookies are due. We just finished putting up our Christmas tree and boy does it look lovely! Nothing brings the Christmassy feel to our home like the pine smell of a fresh
Christmas tree:-)

Onto today's card, I have two actually:-) Both are made using some lovely Theresa Collins paper that I managed to pick from Singapore. The first one uses a lovely Penny Black stamp that I have been dying to use, I coloured it with Copics and die cut it with my Spellbinder Dies to a perfect oval. I love these dies, you can easily add dimension to cards by layering these beautiful die cut shapes:-)
The snow flake dies are by Die-namics, I purchased them from Simon Says Stamp. Here is a Close up:-) As you can see, I have distressed the edges of the die cut with some Ranger distress ink, and added a sentiment from my Hero arts stamp set to a little tag.

The second card is a simpler card, I used the same patterned paper collection and filled the card base, added a sentiment that was stamped, cut out and distressed and embellished with some string and a My Minds Eye brad.

I also stamped the red base with a few gold snow flakes, love how it looks!

So that's my set of cards for today, hope you have a great day!
Much love,
