It's been a while…

…but I'm back. December seemed to whizz by which meant I haven't blogged for ages and I was also way behind with making all my Christmas cards so a mad rush till the end. I will have to be more organised next year (new years resolutions, perhaps?!)  To save time I ended up using the same couple of designs but changed the papers/colour schemes to mix it up a bit, here are just a few as an example. Hope you like. -x-

Stamps: Freebies from Lets Get Crafting and Creative Stamping magazines, The Snowman Sentiments and a snowflakes and sentiments stamp that I got from the Hobby Craft sale last year (thrown out the details, what a plonker).
BG Papers: Blue snowflakes paper made up on my computer plus various freebies from the web and magazines, plain paper and foil card from my stash.
Dies: Nesties classic circles and scalloped circles.
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots.
Embellishments: Ribbon from Dunn Elm Mill plus clear flat backed gems coloured with Promarkers to match the card.
