Christmas in May.

Hi everyone, looks like I'm still not very good at posting even with 2 days off in the same week. At least I have something to show you as well as a DT card. I've been quite good this week. Usually I'm trying to make my DT card and get it posted on the DT blog by Thursday. This week it was all done and dusted on Monday. Net got such a shock she nearly fainted. She said she was only kidding!!

So yesterday I decided to make a Christmas card when my friend came over to craft and I even made another one later. We both used the same stamp which is one of her favourite Penny Black ones.

Here's the first one I made.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Embossing olders :- Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Sizzix Tim Holtz Snow Flurries.
Jewels from stash and Glamour Dust.

And this is the second one, also very simple.

I used :-
Image, colouring, card candy, sentiment and Glamour Dust as before.
Snowflake :- Martha Stewart.

These are the challenges for the first card :-
Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge :- Embossing.
One Stitch at a Time :- Embossing.
Cupcake :- C for Christmas.

I'd like to enter the following challenges with the second card:-
A Spoon Full of Sugar :- White plus one colour.
Cards for Men :- Circles.

Hope you like! I've not really achieved much today. Can't even blame the weather as it's not been so nice today. We have had some sun but much hazier than it has been and quite a cold wind. At least it's still dry. We're promised rain today but so far it hasn't come. I'm off to take the dogs for yet another walk before I have tea and go to my friend's to make cards. A few of us go and we always have a lovely chat too. It's nice to be able to socialise as well as make cards.

Soon be the weekend!
