Christmas Production

Good afternoon peeps,  it has been a glorious bright and sunny day today so we walked the dogs in the woods; now Im not sure whether Steve or the dogs are more tired!  lol

As previously mentioned I am regularly asked to make some cards for 2 or 3 youngsters who partake in Am/Dram in Dorset, it is that time of year again and this time only 2 of them are performing.  My directions were: The Nutcracker and Jack & the Beanstalk, here is what I have made.  Finding images that I could print was very time consuming but I am happy with the end result.

The beanstalk card was made using a great little sketch No. 21 from Papertake Weekly and I used my new MS PAP punches which arrived this week from Quixotic Paperie, I haven't used them together yet but I am loving the edges that they create.

pp - Pink Petticoat - teal
punches - MS PAP
sentiment - pc generated
gems & ribbon - Fabricland
stash - mirri card & rubons

Off now to sort the Steak & Kidney I put in the slow cooker before the walk, time to make a few dumplings and sort the cabbage then off to record 'Strictly' and watch XF , thank goodness Jedward or should I say Deadwood have now gone!  As Dannii said, 'is it a singing contest?'!!

Hi Keryn, fantastic cards and perfectly themed too! You asked on my blog how I created the ribbon slot...I use a Making Memories slot punch...I think it came from Hobbycraft but I don't remember for sure! Donna x

What fab cards- you've chosen great images, I bet they love them, they're so personal x

lovely Keryn. I know what you mean about looking for images, I'm trying to find some funny ones to mask my Dads face into for his cards (I did elf yourself ones last year) but I'm really struggling and I need to make them tonight too!

Yes you can send Xmas cards - what they don't sell this year will always be sold next year so don't worry

Hi Keryn, fantastic cards, both so creative. Steak and kidney, mmmmm, that's one of the first things I will cook when I get home, you can't even buy kidney here in florida, the americans shudder in horror at the thought...
big hugs
