Christmas again ....

Thanks for returning to my blog. It just goes to show Christmas is coming, we had a nice inch of snow this morning, enough to 'play' in but not enough to keep the children off school!!! :-) By lunch time it warmed up and began to rain and all the snow melted, much to my disappointment. I hope we get a white Christmas this year, it would be amazing. I only remember a couple of white ones when I was very little. We had a lovely big garden and couldn't wait to get out there and play. It wasn't long before our teeth were chattering and we wanted to come in again!!
Here are anothe couple of simple Christmas cards. Both were stamped with clear gluepad and heat embossed with cosmic shimmer holographic glitter embossing powder.
For the snowflake card, I inked 3 large snowflakes and stampbord, embossed as with the background snowflakes, inked the edge of the card and stuck into place. Added papermania clear adhesive stones.
For the stichels snowman card I stamped him on white card with lilac staz-on, cut him out and coloured him in with lilac and jade sukura pens. I added sticky ribbons in matching colours and a greeting, again stamped in lilac staz-on. Finally, I inked the edge of the card. I think Mr Snowman is happy with his new coat and hat!!!
