More Christmas Cards

Well, what a whirlwind these last couple of weeks has been and there's no end in sight just yet. There have been school activities, dancing rehearsals, dance concerts, Christmas shopping, parties, and the list goes on. Today should be relatively quiet so I managed to take these few minutes to show you a couple of Christmas cards I made for some friends...

The owl card was made by stamping the Woodgrain background stamp with Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock. The owl was punched from Soft Suede cardstock using the gorgeous owl punch. Other colours used were Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and Basic Black. The "For You" sentiment is from the retired Vintage Labels set. It was punched with the Jewellery Tag punch, The sentiment inside the card is from the Many Merry Messages set. The branch was punched from Old Olive using the Two-Step Bird punch. The ribbon is Real red grosgrain.

The second card was made using the Loads of Love and the Loads of Love Accesories sets. It was made for Ruth who has two Golden Retrievers so I had to eliminate one of the dogs from the stamp, more difficult than I anticipated because the stamp is so small. Anyway, we got there in the end. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set

I hope to get some scrapbooking done amongst all the chaos as I have so many gorgeous photos of the girls that I've taken lately. I'll be sure to show you when I'm done. Wish me luck.
