My first christmas cards of 2008!

Well, I have finally managed to find some inspiration to make some Christmas cards! I looked through last year's craft remains of Christmas bits and pieces and was really uninspired so today I bought some Christmassy vellums and a few crafty goodies and I have been onto the Pink Petticoat website and eventually decided that I preferred these trees slightly more than any of the other Christmas downloads (would have loved to have them all but my bank balance won't allow me at the moment!). I coloured the images in with pencil crayons and a gold gel pen for the star and I have to say that I rather like them! I'm becoming more and more of a Pink Petticoat fan and I have my eye on a few downloads so watch this space! xxx

I'm back!!

Hello all,

Sorry I have been away from my blog, visiting your blogs and crafting for so long. I am going to try catch up as much as I can in the next week or so and I can't wait to see what you have all been up to recently.

I have managed to make two cards this evening to add to my collection to sell for charity. I have got about 20 cards now but I want to have a good selection before I start to sell them so that there is plenty of choice. Hope you like them anyway.

Dovecraft square card blank, Pink Petticoat frog coloured with green pencil crayon, Whispers permanent red pen and gold gel pen, Papermania eyelets, ribbon from Hobbycraft and green and red paper from The Papermill shop.

Dovecraft square card blank, corset peel off from Craft Central, Papermania eyelets, Papermania adhesives gems, organza ribbon and thin red ribbon from Hobbycraft and red and black paper from The Papermill Shop.

Hope you are all well. Catch up with you soon...must tidy up all my craft stuff now so that I have a bed to sleep in tonight! xxx
