Crafty's advent day 7

I have started making my Christmas cards.  I know most of you finished them ages ago, some of you even started in January.  Me, I am a last minute girl, the ideas do not seem to flow until I am under pressure.

As you know I am loving the new fresh colours we have this year in our Christmas ribbons - the pink and limes are just wicked!

Simple and very quick!  I could not find the shade of pink card I wanted anywhere, but I did find a roll of pink kraft paper, so I simply covered blank white card with the paper.  An old fashioned parcel tag, punched a snowflake at the bottom and a couple of bits of ribbon and that's it - simple.

I used 3mm plain white satin (here) and my favorite christmas ribbon this year, Go Grosgrain pink snowflakes (here).

I know most of the country is still covered in snow, but if you would like some of our snowflake ribbon then leave a comment today and we will put a collection of flakes together for you.  We will pick and announce the winner in tomorrows posting.

More challenge goodies to inspire you.

I really like the way you have threaded the ribbon through the card Wilma, I did have a try but my lines were not straight!

Tracey and Paul another fab collection of treats, these ribboned clothes pags are extra special, they have little magnetic tabs on the back.  Perfect for on the fridge reminders. What a great idea.

A perfect little gingerbread house Ruby, it is adorable.  Clever to put it onto acetate and then decorate the back, adds that extra dimension.

These tags from Natalie are really special, I would love to receive them on my prezzies.

Margaret this little creation of yours caused me so much stress in Paris - everyone wanted the calendar tab.  I could have sold boxes of them, we finally found out that they had never seen this type of thing in France - surely not, as children this was the staple parents present made at Sunday School. All I can say is it went down a storm Margaret. I am sorry to say we are sold out of the little red gingerbread ribbon, but we still have the white colourway in stock.

We did not quite make Amazons level of orders yesterday but it was still a record day! 

Thanks everyone.
