My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

23 January 2013

Quick Christmas Makes

Evening everyone!

Have you had any more snow? We've had two lots here today.  It started heavy again this morning and then again at around 3.30 pm and apparently on Friday we are in for a load more!  To be honest I've had enough of it now!

So today's cards - I started these before Christmas and never got around to finishing them until the New Year - some simple CAS Christmas creations - nothing inspiring.

Card Ingredients:

Memory Box Flowering Christmas Tree Die
Pearls & Gems - NEC Stash
Kanban Pearlescent & Mirri Caard
Greeting Stamp

I am entering these into the following challenges:

Christmas Cards All Year Round Anything Goes
Crafts For Eternity 107 Punch It Out
Make It Monday 124

Don't forget there are still a couple of days to enter my 3rd Blogaversary candy here

Thanks for popping in.
