Has it really been so long....

...Since I last blogged?! 
I didn't realise!!!
So I shall show you a selection of the Christmas cards I have made this year....

 I think this first card up, is one of my faves this year. 
Made personally for my sister, her fella and their little girl.
 I made the image myself from about 15 separate digi-images and
decoupaged a lot of it too...
glossy accents here and there and a few martha stewart snowflakes 
- kindly punched for my by a docrafts buddy! - 
craftwork cards sentiment and
papermania embossing folder for the background. 
I loved putting this together :) 

 This is a cute card that I made quite a few of, in the end.
Easy and quick to make. 
Printed out image with my own greeting,
matted and layered onto colour and papermania 
embossing folder....can't you tell I just bought it this year!  ;)

 I love this homely image...
I found it on Beccys place, so thankyou, Beccy - I made a few with this image!
(Coloured with my watercolour pencils and pc generated sentiment).

 Another quick and easy set...
papermania embossing folder and my own martha stewart punch. 
sentiments are either craftwork cards, stamped or pc generated.

 I bought a couple of sets of peg stamps earlier in the year and loved 
using them to make this card and the ones that follow....
Its a shame the photo doesn't pick it up too well,
but the card above is so sparkly irl.
"warm wishes" stamp is from a set I bought from QVC TSV ages ago.

 I had to buy this set as I love that little branch
- I feel I can do a lot with that branch, all year round -
and the little Christmas flowers have a gem in the center of each.

 Yet another set of the peg stamps meant I could make a little mistletoe wreath.

And finally, This is from an embossing folder I have had for a few years, 
I simply added a pc sentiment and a diecut star!
Thanks for looking (and commenting!),..more to come soon xx
