this weeks Christmas card...

 I have been playing with some of my old stamps that really need an airing....


this is a very old Stampendous stamp called Train postcard...just perfect for my big brother ..I stamped 2 of the images and cut out the oval on the second and layered it up as well as fussy cutting the holly and using Nuvo drops for the berries....the sentiment is a tonic die...

I hope you are keeping safe and well out in blogland....thanks for popping by today.

a Sunday Christmas card

 I have been trying out the dies my niece Elizabeth bought me for christmas...


the fancy die cut is Heartfelt creations Elegant Swirl Gateway, such a gorgeous die and it makes a lovely card shape...I used some papers from the sparkling poinsettia pad and made some poinsettia up using the Christmas poinsettia and holly stamp and die set ....

the bells and greenery are from the tattered lace over the mantle set...

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you are all safe and well.
