I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

My first two Christmas card of 2015

These are my first two card for Christmas 2015.  I was so rushed with orders and late with making my own card that 2014's cards were very simple and none were photographed or blogged.  I am determined to make one Christmas card per week this year and these start the ball rolling, so to speak!

This first card is made using a set of stamps which are designed to layer ontop of each other.  The wreath is made with 3 different stamps which gives the two shades of green for the leaves and the berries.  I added gems and red stickles to the berries for dimension.  The bow is also in the set and all have co-ordinating thinlet dies to cut them out.

This second card is a mixture of stamp sets which I had inspiration from Pinterest.  I made the "scene" with various small stamps and sponged the top so it was like the sky.  Really pleased with this one (I made a couple for 2014 Christmas similar to this)
