Christmas Candy

Good Morning bloggers!
Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend!
The card I have to share with you today was made using the
 "Christmas Candy" decoupage sheet & design papers from 

It's  a centre stepper card!
The card blank is by La Pashe too!
All you need to do is fold along the pre scored lines & it's ready to embellish
however you choose! Anyhoo, on to my card!

I cut out the decoupage then layered it up using pinflair glue.
I added some glossy accents, a little glass heart & some ribbon
(which was up-cycled from a top my friend bought!)
 I also added some fluffy fibres to the Santa Hat.
I love the Christmas Stocking DP & thought it went so well with the
Christmas Candy as in true Christmas tradition, 
you're sure to find some candy in your stocking!

Here's a little side view to let you see the dimension!

Merry Christmas

Good Morning Crafters! 
I do hope you're all well! 
Another week is nearly over & Christmas isfast approaching!
 That said, I wanted to share this little card with you today!

It's a little gate-fold card & the image I have used is
I've used this image lots of times as I just love that cheery couple!
Hop on over to Just Inklined & check out all the fabby Christmas images.
There lots of new ones as well as all the old favourites!

Here's a closer look at the lovely couple! All coloured up with 
my usual mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers.
The papers are Papermania "Noel" from last year.
I still have lots to use up!

I decorated the inside of the card too, I love doing this.

Another little side view!
The little glitter embellishments are foam stickers that I picked up from a bargain bin
 in Tesco at the start of this year or was it last??? They're not as sticky as
they once were, but that's easily remedied!
This card is flat enough to be sent in the post using a normal letter stamp.

Thanks for popping in, hope you liked what you saw!

A Stitch In Time

Good morning lovely bloggers!
It's time for another challenge over at 
Crafting For All Seasons. where the theme this time is
Here's my card!

This is a really quick & simple CAS Christmas card.
All the items I have used are from my stash & most of them have been
there since at least last year! It always feels good to use up stash!
Not much to tell you about this one, but the base is Kraft card-stock,
I punched some holes along the top & bottom then did a row of
 backstitch using a needle & some cotton floss.
The Merry Christmas is a peel off, it's slightly glittery but you can't really see that!
