week 8 make one christmas card each week....postbox.....

and use old stash.....



I have used very old Marianne designs  dies....the tag and robins are from 2015....the letter box is even older....the poinsettia are Heartfelt creations .
I love making these tag cards...I use my scan and cut to create a base card by drawing  round the die and then cut it out on my machine...brilliant...
I am still being good and haven't bought anything from selly telly since last November.....saving myself a fortune...and the satisfaction of using old stash.....
thanks for popping by my blog today....I hope you are enjoying doing some crafting

A cheer up card..

My dear old uncle Mark is still plodding along now that he has new nurse who seems to cheer him up and get him to eat....so a card to cheer him up ...made with the help of my new cricut machine which is taking some getting to know.....






I used the Anna Griffin Garden cards and embellishments cartridge which I have had for some years and found a bit daunting...but this new machine certainly makes life much more straight forward,,it sorts all the layers into different matts and makes it all much more logical....the sentiment is from Tonic...
thank you for popping by today I hope you are having a happy day crafting .

christmas club challenge 3...Angels or Fairies

this weeks theme was chosen by Granmargaret and was perfect for using some of my older dies,,,,







I have tried two different angles to stop the flare from the silver mirri but it still looks black and not silver....all the dies used are last year or even older Sue Wilson festive collection .....lots of glitter in the background and a tonic sentiment.....
If you would like to see all the other girls creations the links to their blog are on my side bar....
