Boy was I having a bad morning. I have a very busy week ahead, so I decided to try and sort out the balance of the advent ideas that have been whizzing around in my head. The next minute the computer started publishing my thoughts, the curser was acting on its own, and I was locked out of the blog. It must have been bad because the office called to ask if I was ok!
Anyway - my Christmas cards. I confess I do not make very many, but they have to be easy and quick to make, oh and they must use ribbon. Being part of our Challenge blog here, I am having to force myself out of my comfort zone. So stamping! Ummh stamping! Scares the life out of me! I do not own any stamps, inks or anything like that so................ I borrowed a set of ink pads and some stamps from Rachie to create these. Please do not all laugh at once, I do have feelings.
Simple - elegant - yes? - maybe? i used our NEW sketch Trees and Stars Ribbon here. After the row going on between Kirstie and I can not remember her name, I will have to be very careful who I send them too! Nahhh I like love crafting, so will send them to all with a little kiss. If they do not like handmade creations, they can always put them in the bin. Rock on Kirstie, as she has brought crafts to TV without being on a shopping channel, she gets our thumbs up.
Without crafting we would have no challenges. These creations are from Sandie, and boy has she come up with some super ideas.
Decorated milk carton with little choccy snowmen, hope they are milk chocolate Sandie!
Little tiny snowmen all having fun.
A perfect little album for those special Christmas photos.
Great combination of colours Sandie, it all works so well together. I love the little December insert.
It took me a while to realise the little white hats on the side of the tag is our ribbon. Cor I really am having a durrrrh day.
Beautiful Sandie, I do hope you enjoyed crafting with the ribbon, you really have created some super ideas - thank you.
