A productive craft day!

Saturday, 25 July 2009
I hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday. We've had some lovely weather here today which makes a change to the rain we've had most of the week.

Anyway, I've spent the day with my best friend, Nikola crafting away in her conservatory. I managed to make 5 Christmas cards amidst the chatter and cats! Rather than post them all today though, I thought I would spread them out over a couple of days.

I've used my cute Forever Friends Santa stamps again, isn't he adorable?!? I'm hoping that this is acceptable for the Winter Wonderland Challenge which is Santa Claus is Coming to Town. I know it's a little late!
Supplies:
Stamps: Santa - Forever Friends; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics & Rangers Inkessential White pen
CS & DP: Papermania card, DCWV The Christmas Stack
Tools: Swiss Dots CB Folder, Circle nestabilities
Embellishments: Gems - Papermania, Sentiment - CWC oval; Anita's peel off borders

I was really happy with the colouring and shading of this image, I'm finally starting to love my pens!

The second card uses the really sweet Reindeer & Robin stamp from Elzybells. I was inspired to get these stamps after seeing some amazing cards by Michelle last Christmas. He is so sweet!

Supplies:
Stamps: Reindeer & Robin - Elzybells; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics & Rangers Inkessential White pen;
CS: Bazzill Basics and CWC white card;
Tools: Snowflake CB Folder, Square nestabilities
Embellishments: Gems - Papermania, Sentiment - CWC oval; Anita's peel off borders

I know the cards are fairly simple, but that's my style!
I'm just sitting down now to watch Marley & Me so I will see you later! Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Sarah :o)

    A gorgeous card ... and definitely acceptable! I love the forever friends image and your colouring is beautiful. I also love the layout and although you have used traditional colours, it's a fab, modern Christmas card. Well done!

    Thank you for joining us at Winter Wonderland this week!
