Quick Christmas cards


This is a bunch of Christmas cards I made a while ago, but didn't show. They are all made using Lili of the Valley art pad pictures - so handy when you want to make some quick cards. These are cards that will be sold cheaper than usual for charity.


These are for:

The 12 months of Christmas
Creatalicious 71: winter
Holly jolly Christmas: angels and fairies (at the front)
Clear it out: anything goes (all old stuff!)
Word art Wednesday 169: anything goes
Papertake: anything goes
Not just cards 12: anything goes
My craft creations: anything goes
Inspiration destination 19: anything goes
Kit & clowder: anything goes
Sister act 91: anything goes

Vintage purple


As John is in hospital, having his angiogram yesterday, I tried o keep busy. I thought I might attempt a bit of crafting, but so far ... nothing.

However, this is a card I made some time ago, but didn't blog. The papers are all from my offcuts box including a piece that was created with a stencil, acrylic paint and my gelli plate. It's an unknown vintage photo plus a little topper left over from a small kit - the bird is gold foiled and shines better than in the photo!


This is for:

Pixie's snippets week 162
Vandicrafts February: antiqued
Paperminutes 369: portraits of the past
