Fizzy Moon - Christmas Cards

Here are some of the cards I made using my prize from Papercraft Inspirations. For being the 'Letter they love most' I received what appears to be a complete set of Fizzy Moon "Festive Fun"  backing papers, paper packs pyrimage and decoupage sets and embellishments.  Absolutely fantastic  stuff and the lilttle bear images are so cute.

These cards are part of the Christmas selection and should be arriving on doormats sometime soon :-)

Once again Happy Christmas to all my visitors and I wish you a very prosperous New Year!

Christmas Cards

This years Christmas represent a collaboration between myself and my OH. His photos of snowy/wintery scenes, taken over the last few winters, are all shots of our local area and some from the garden. We are usually under several tons of snow at this time of year, but we've not had as much as a flake fall as yet, so we had to fall back on the earlier photos. Don't worry, the snow will be here...any day now. The photos represent what we see in winter whilst walking the dog through the fields and woods near our home. I needed to find a cardbase/frame for each photo to compliment the shot and that  added a christmassy feel too.
I matted the photos onto white and then gold card stock. I used some green and red pre-folded Anitas cards sent to me by my sister Eileen and the ribbon (Three Kings), sentiments (sorry no label) and embellishments are a gift from my sister Julie who went to the recent crafts and hobby fair at the NEC. I wish I could have gone this year, but there's alway next time.  I told you my family support my hobby! And they understand that I can't get stash-stuff so easily.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

This is Christmas Wreath I've made for my door using ivy from the garden, some glitter covered decorations and finished off with some red ribbons. The base is a plain wicker ring. This is for the challenge at the  The Crafty Bloggers Network . OK it's not paper or a card but it is 3D!

As the main door is on the north side of the house and doesn't get a lot of sun, anything that brightens up the area is welcome. The red and gold baubles look great against the dark leaves of the ivy and the ribbon, set off-centre, completes the wreath. I'm very pleased with this.
