Oh deer less than 2 months to go

How is your Christmas cardmaking going? I am busy working away on mine, still have lots to make and this week have had an order for 4 special Christmas cards from a friend plus two large magazine commissions so good job my diary is fairly empty for the next few days as I have a lot going on in November with craft fairs, trips to the theatre etc.  

When you have a lot left to make toppers come in so handy don't they and these gorgeous new images are so cute it really doesn't matter that I didn't colour the image. I used some papers from last Christmas, Dovecarft 'Tis the Seasin, lots of distressing and Stickles and added some lovely new ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I bought a few goodies from Live and Love Crafts before they close and that is where the berries and cone came from. White flowers are from Hobbycraft and I added some frosted berries from The Ribbon Girl in the middle of an odd poinsettia I found in my stash.

Simon Says anything goes 
Allsorts Sparkle and shine 
The Ribbon Girl any image 
Vilda Stamps anything goes 
Bizzy Becs anything goes

I have a large pile of ironing waiting for me this morning before I can head into the craftroom. Enjoy your day.
