Good morning crafters …Merry Christmas to you all!
I know some of you will have a busy morning getting the turkey ready so if you’ve taken the time to stop by then thank you
I hope Santa brought you all something nice, maybe you had some lovely crafty goodies in your Christmas stocking?
The Design Team have been doing a great job looking after the blog while we are on holiday so I’ve hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the cards they’ve been sharing
I did this last year and everyone enjoyed it so I thought I’d do the same this year. Today and on New Years day I’ll be showing some of my favourite cards from 2013
I’ll do the team in alphabetical order …and that means I’m up first!
I’ve picked this one from my own cards, I don’t often make shaped cards and was pleased with how this turned out
I used one of our Art Pads, they are great if you don’t like stamping and colouring or just don’t have the time
It’s a set of 3 canvases and is on display in our shop, it’s beautiful and the picture doesn’t do it justice
Dawny next and I had to show one her little paper carts
These were hugely popular when we did them at the workshops and are perfect for showing off our lovely patterned papers
Debbie joined us in the Summer and our customers love her cards
This was one of my favourites, a lovely Christmas card using Red Squirrels Pine Tree
She hung him from the aperture so he was actually swinging, how clever!
I was spoiled for choice choosing a card by Elise, she has made a few where she has combined 2 stamps in one scene and this is one of my favourites
She’s used lots of dies and frantage to create a snowy scene
Last for today is our Gretha and I’ve chosen another Christmas card
This stamp is A Christmas Carol and I like the colour scheme that Gretha chose, the purple is unusual and I love it with the kraft card!
That’s it, my first top picks from the past year
I’m handing back over to the Design team now,there will be a card every day throughout the holidays and I’ll be back on New Years day with the rest of my favourites
Have a fantastic Christmas everyone
