Been AWOL....

Gosh I am a norty blogger, Sometimes real life just seems to get in the way doesn't it? to be honest this last week has flown by  so quickly, I don't seem to have achieved much.  I did get very distracted by my new Waltzingmouse stamps from this month's release. I bought 3 new sets and I have been having a lot of fun inking up two of them (haven't managed to open the third set yet) and trying out different Christmas card designs. 

I just love the Seasonal remedies set I have made a few cards but I won't share them all today.

This is a 5 x 5 inch card I made with some really old forest green cardstock, I then used lots of snippets of different papers and card. I haven't actually used any Christmas papers but I think I have got away with it - just. The ribbon is 25mm large check (you can find lots of different colours of this ribbon HERE)

The next card is made with my favourite stamp from the same set, I cannot put them down at the moment.

Again I haven't used any Christmas papers these stamps really work with any traditional design I think. This card is finished off with some Moss green seam binding, red bakers twine and a button from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

Challenges I'm entering this card into are;

Winter Wonderland - A Vintage Christmas
Charisma cardz - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge - use up your snippets

I'll share some more card with you tomorrow,
thanks for visiting.
