Flying high


Less than a month to go and I really must print out the inserts for our Christmas cards. I have been so busy making cards and gifts for my craft fairs that I haven't had time to write our cards yet. Still plenty of time and as always everything gets done in time. Most of our pressies have been bought and once the craft fairs are over we will start wrapping them.

I do love playing around with diecuts and making cards without stamped images for a change. This one sold at the first fair I took it to. I used a large Memory Box die and Impression Obsessions Santa die, added some Stickles and sentiment rubon. The backing paper is First Edition.

The same here Marianne, I've been preparing for craft fairs but aren't as prepared for our own Christmas, lol. A really lovely card in Kraft and white, great combo I think. That landscape die looks really special too. Enjoy your day.

It is nice to use dies on their own sometimes Marianne, with such beautiful ones available why not, great job on this one.
