Just a few more....

Yes, I've been busy designing Christmas cards. Getting quite an assortment now; it's going to be fun sending these ones out to my family and friends. Normally, I would mass produce one design, but this year I'm doing assorted.
This first card uses the Crazy for Christmas stamp set. I've stamped in black onto the Whisper White and then spot-lighted a peice of the image. The circle image has been raised and I've punch out with circle punch and then matted onto a Ruby red circle. The close up image gives you a better idea of the different layers in this card.

Stamp set: Crazy for Christmas, Print Pattern BG, sentiment from All Year Cheer
Cardstock: Ruby Red, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Whisper White
Ink: Ruby Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Gingham, Hodgepodge hardware, SU markers to colour images, tag (non-SU) circle punches.

The other two cards are using Scribble This. I'm really enjoying using this set for Christmas cards, even though it's not very traditional. The first card uses Ruby Red, Black & Sage Shadow. The second card uses Bordering Blue, Night of Navy & Whisper White. Also on this card, I've used the verse from Wishing You (Spring mini).

Any questions, I'm happy to answer. Hope you are all having a wonderful day. The weather is really starting to warm up here now. I'm looking forward to the weekend. We have Warren's parents staying with us, the first guests to use our little 'retreat'. Hope they love it!! So with warmer weather on the way, we are sure to be going to the beach and enjoying some time outside and having a few BBQ's. Very nice!!

mmmmmmmm what can i say for a great compliment on your cards, just fabulous i guess!
Gorgeous weather that's for sure, our pool has been used almost everyday this week. I think the kids are crazy but i guess a few warm days in a row warms it up.
Have a lovely weekend and sure they are going to love their little 'weekender' :)
