First christmas cards

What a glorious week its been. Still convalescing at home and will be for the next couple of weeks. I've just purchased the dasher stamp from SU and these are the cards I made the other night using it. I've used not quite navy ink on one set and Lavender Lace ink on the other.

Thanks for looking and leaving any comments.

What a week...

Phew, I hope the worst is over. Got rushed into hospital last week and ended up having surgery on Thursday. Hopefully I'm on the road to recovery now, fingers crossed. Needless to say I haven't done much crafting lately, I'm just glad I got the wedding card done early, but here are a few of the cards I have managed to make.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look

Hello everyone,

What a wet week its been, I think I'm going to need a canoe to get to work soon if the rain keeps coming. I hope it clears up for next week as both hubby and I are off work and we are at a wedding on the 19th, so keep your fingers crossed.

I've decided to join in a couple of challanges to inspire me as I'm in one of those zones where my mojo has packed its bags and gone on Here are the cards I've made so far, I'm hoping to join in a few more as the week goes on.

For this one I've used all SU products apart from the little gems at the bottom. The centre image is punched out using the scolloped boarder punch and I've rolled over the white flowers from the pretties kit to give them some colour. The stamp set used is Occasional Greetings

Challanges are:
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Pollycraft - Ribbons and bling
Cupcake Crafts - Dazzle us
Little paper shop - Colours red, yellow and blue

Again all SU products with the image coming from True Friends stamp set

The challanges I'm joining in with are:
Crafty Angels - favourite stamp
Spoonful full of Sugar - Floral
Kaboodle Doodles - 3 papers, 2 Embelishments and 1 image

Thanks for looking
