A Happy Wish

A happy wish to you & yours, for a wonderful festive season, & my apologies to those of you who have left me some lovely comments, I will visit you eventually...but for now, thank you for popping in :)
I thought I had finished all my Christmas cards for the year, but I forgot I had signed up for SANDIE`s challenge over at her blog (sorry SANDIE, better late than never LOL) So here`s my last bit of crafting for the year... The top
card was a very easy one to make, it`s just a circle punch (Whale of a Punch) some DCWV pp, & metallic cs, Fiskars edge punch, ribbon, & a cuttlebug embossing folder.
For the second card, I used the stamp I won last month over at INKURABLE STAMPERS (thanks SARAH, & STAMP & SCRAPBOOK MADNESS), stamped the image using Versafine Ink, coloured it in using wc pencils, & added some KG, ribbon & the sentiment is from a DARKROOM DOOR word strip.

& here`s another card using one of my favourite Christmas set of stamps ( by DRD) Both the reindeer image & the word are from THIS SET. The pps are from DCWV, the green cs was in my scraps box, & I used 2 different edge punches (Martha Stewart`s for the green cs, & Fiskars for the blue DCWVpp) & a bit of ribbon to finish it off.

For this next one I used the circle punch again, & 2 different cb embossing folders, some ribbon & foam tape, & the words (from the DRD Christmas set) were stamped onto kraft card, distressed around the edges & mounted onto scraps of DCWV pp. The finished card was edged using Brilliance ink.
For this card, I raided my scraps box again, the green b`ground pp is Basic Grey, the strip of red cs was a left-over piece from the first card in this post (I just can`t throw ANYTHING away LOL) The beautiful images are from a Montage sheet (DRD), with some tiny Kaiser pearls in between, & the sentiment is from DRD Christmas set mounted onto a scrap of DCWV red pp.

Now we come to the very last card, made using BB cs (jade) DCWV metallic cs (copper) edged with a Fiskars punch & sanded back slightly to show the white core, DCWV pp (the dots are silver), reindeer image & word (from DRD set) stamped onto white cs using Versafine ink (Sepia) & some beads strung onto metallic embroidery floss. Again, card was edged with Brilliance ink. So these are the first 6 Christmas cards for NEXT year all taken care of LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
& if you read THIS post, you would know I was picked as one of the winners in the DRD FLICKR challenge, & my prize pack was delivered to me on Christmas eve (Thank you so much Rachel) I still haven`t had a chance to play with it, but that`s the first thing I plan to do next year...which is just around the corner!!!!!!!!! I don`t know about you, but this year has just flown by! & on that note I`d like to wish you & yours, a very happy & safe new year, may you only make resolutions you can actually stick to, I know I will :) Thanks for visiting, & see you next year : *
