Christmas bags

Hello Everyone, 
I was asked to make a few (about 30!) of these bags for this years Christmas fair at school so I thought I'd better make a start. 

I found some old art sheets from Lili of the Valley with some gorgeous James the Bear images on. I fussy cut the images and added a bit of glossy accents to the stars. I used one of the recent paper pads from LOTV - Vintage Christmas which is still available.

You might need your sunglasses for my card tonight...it's a bit bright!
This is just one of the very sweet monsters available as a digi stamp from Lili of the Valley's Etsy shop, Simply Sweet Stamps Monsters. This set includes 9 sweet monsters and a range of sentiments.


I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are a fab set from Sunny Studio - Rainbow bright.
The sentiment comes with the set.

My 5 favourite Christmas cards of 2018

Hello Everyone, 
I hope you are all ready for the big day tomorrow.  I haven't done half the jobs that I intended to do but if it isn't done now it's not going to be  done. I'm just about to sit down with Tom and Emma to watch Nativity on DVD. Love that film.
I haven't made many Christmas cards this year so I didn't have too many to choose my top 5 from...anyway here they are....

This was a larger 8" square card and I was really pleased with the way this turned out.


This snowman comes out every year so has to be in my top 5 as it's one of my all time favourite stamps


I just can't resist these fairies


This could be one of my new all time favourite stamps. I had intended to make lots of cards with her but ran out of time...maybe next year?!


And finally I always enjoy colouring this little group of carol singing snowmen.



I'd like to wish you all a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS

I've used a Bugaboo image for this one...


I've coloured them with promarkers and the background paper is from Craftwork Cards. I've used a Marianne Creatables fence die and a Crafts too snowflake. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
