More Snippets..

I've been busy sorting out the scrap paper mountain and found a lot of Christmas scraps from the last few years. I cannot throw away paper no matter how much I try to tidy up it is just such a waste.  These 4 little cards are all made with old and new papers combined. I also used loads of kraft scraps, I have been stamping Christmas sentiments on little pieces and putting them to one side.

I used Waltzingmouse Around Christmas time set,( I so want to buy the new releases but have no funds this month, sob, sob!) and the sentiments are from Compliments of the Season I love the traditional look of these.

I inked all  of the edges with my trusty chalk ink which is sadly on it's last legs, I don't think you can buy them separately anymore. I'll have to replace this very soon.

I've been trying to keep my cards as thin as possible to keep the postage cost down but I think the bows will make these the more expensive option. Never mind.

I'm entering these into the following challenges;

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
