Just wanted to pop in with a couple of cards I managed to put together towards this holiday season. Nothing too flash but passable. LOL
At the moment, I am trying to come up with some clever craft ideas for the kids. We always love to have a couple of mega craft days before Christmas just to make something decorative for our home. I sure wouldn't mind hearing any fab ideas you might have suitable for the kids including the wee ones (ages 3 to 12). I am seriously drawing up blanks at the moment. Rock on January!
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it tremendously! x

The title of this post must be my (not so) closet motto for this festive season which is fast approaching. I have only made a handful of Christmas cards this month! Eek gads! I am not so convinced that even if I were to get a wriggle on, I would have made and mailed all the cards that need doing to meet my holiday requirements. But seeing that there are still nearly a fortnight left of sleeps before the Big Fella arrives, I might not throw in the towel just yet. *wink*
This is just a quick little number I whipped up using mainly Papertrey Ink's holiday bits and bobs circa 2012 with the sentiment frame being the exception. The sentiment frame stamp is a good'un from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Vintage Labels No. 18.
So best leave this a short and sweet post and get back to crafting. Thanks a bunch for looking. Catch ya soon!

Do you think this card will count as a one layered wonder if I tell you that it is really a one layered card hiding beneath the two thoroughly glued down slopey hills? Didn't thinks so. Hehe. I was trying my darnedest to do a one layered card but when the thought of those darling wee gingham and graph paper hills came to mind it was stuck there and wasn't gonna budge until I crafted them. D'oh!
This card was crafted with Papertrey Ink goodies from across the years. I must say, it is rather satisfying to create using some older items, and still feel they are rather current (albeit it possibly so, only within my own lunchbox). I am entering this card into Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge. I am fairly certain it has been well over a year, if not more, since I participated in one... so I thought why not? The challenge was to create using glitter detail. Although, I am not a stranger to glitter, I don't use it too, too often, but enjoy it when I do. I used some Prisma Glitter across the wire the birds have precariously perched upon and a few squirts on the petals of the flower at the base of the one tree. C'est Tout.
Thanks a big bunch for stopping by. Here's to a love-filled day for us all!
