Black & White Christmas


Here are a couple of cards I have made following Margaret's request to see B&W for this fortnights challenge.  I love B&W so I was more than happy with this brief, Thank You Margaret I really enjoyed myself with these although the photography leaves a lot to be desired!

For this one I have used the super sketch over at Sketchy Colours and its the first inking of a stamp I found in my xmas box but without the card telling me who made it.  I think it may have been a freebie in a crafting mag last year!  I wasnt overly fussed with the 'white' card from Papermill on this one so I made another.

This snowman (from Bugaboo) was loitering on my desk with intent following my last card for CCC and I used the offcut of the black and white Twinkles paper from Pink Petticoat from the top card.  A little touch of snowflakes courtesy  of MS and the sparkly paper also a remnant from the above and it was done!  The white is much crisper on this one so I am happy!

If anyone else would like to get a head with their xmas cards this year then why not get in touch, there are 18 of us from all over the world now and its a lovely group of gals who share a bit more than the odd xmas card!

Thanks for calling in,
