Fabulous Friday - Merry Christmas everyone!

My oh my!  Is it really nearly Christmas!

For some reason, I wasn't very organised this year but hey we got there in the end.

We are still running our challenges over at Polkadoodles over the Christmas season, so if you get anything new for Christmas and can't wait to play, then come along and enter your creations.  Our challenges are always Anything Goes.

For my creation this week, I used a simple panel from the wonderful Studio 12 - Picknix 2 - Gingerbread Twist collection.

I used four panels and cut three of them down at different levels, to add dimension to the canvas.

I couldn't resist adding some snowtex to the edges and some glitter pen to the lettering - it's so much more sparkly in person :-)

I was trying to get a better picture with this one - but it's didn't really work, did it LOL!

That's it from me till after Christmas.

Wishing you all the joys of the season, hope that you are able to spend it with your families and friends.

Simply Saturday - Christmas Post

It's that time of year - didn't you know !  Christmas posting.

You all know how expensive it can get these days to post cards, either internationally or locally.

So, I made some really flat cards for posting, adding a little sparkle with a Sakura Gel Pen.

The first two cards are from the Polkadoodles Baked with Love collection.

These last two are from the wonderful Winnie Winterland collection.

I made several of these - really quickly with my Silhouette Cameo - just printing, cutting, inking and sticking :-)

A short post for today.  Hope you are all getting organised for the up coming festivities.

Shannon is due home from college, this coming Friday, for the Christmas holidays.  Only 6  more sleeps :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

Fabulous Friday - Blue Christmas

Happy Friday everyone.

And here we are in December!  Shannon will be home two weeks today for the Christmas holidays - yay :-)

Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes - so why not go along and enter.

I have used the wonderful Festive Christmas collection for my quick card today.

Using one of the pre-made frames and then adding some dimension to the layers.

For the inside a merged the layers to keep it flat and added a sentiment.

I also used some gold glitter pen on the doves and the heart - it's difficult to see but looks lovely in person.

I love this colour blue.  What colours do you prefer at Christmas?
