No not Christmas in July

BUT I thought it would be a good idea to start creating Christmas cards, so that my Ladies will be ready for Christmas.  Before we know it, it will be Christmas!!

When making Christmas cards, it is better to be able to make them on-mass.  To do this it is wise to use a simple design. This one is quick but looks like it took a lot of time.

STAMP SET:  Season of Joy
INK:  Cherry Cobbler
PAPER:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Old Olive,
DESIGNER SERIES PAPER:  Jolly Holiday
PUNCHES:  Ornament, Decorative
EMBOSSING FOLDER:  Elegant Bouquet
CHALKS:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
EXTRAS:  Big Shot, Tombow, Cotton Buds

Tomorrow, hubby and I are off to Sydney to catch up with our son and his family.  (Can’t wait to give the 2 grandsons, lots of hugs and kisses, spoiling them and “cooking with Nana”. reading bed time stories and them showing us how to turn on the TV and playing DS games!!  🙂 )

I have a few birthday cards that I have made, which I will post while away.

My granddaughter turns 6 this week, so here is the card that I made for her.  I used all SU items except the stamp set…. that I bought in England when we were over there last year.

Water Colouring using our water colouring paper.  (Notice I used my vellum butterflies.  Also the next picture will show how I used Shimmer Paint on the water-colour).

As we will be away for her birthday, we celebrated last night.  She loved all her gifts and was oh hum about the card!!  Well, she’s only 6 and she does have her priorities!  My daughter keeps all the cards, so I know one day she will appreciate the time and effort her Nan made to create a card for her……..

Till next time, have fun ‘playing’.

Hugs

  1. Love the little girl’s card, I know my own, that would have liked it now at 7, but yes your granddaughter will realize later. Enjoy your holiday.

  2. Just love your Christmas card. It has gone in to my CASE file.

    The birthday card is very cute. Don’t worry that she doesn’t seem to appreciate it. You will probably find her proudly showing it off to her friends next week.
