Christmas is Coming....have you started your cards?

You missed a chance to get them started this afternoon!  We had a lovely intimate class today and made 6 cards, three each of two designs.
This is the first one, CASED from a design by the so-talented-she's-scary Andrea Walford.  It uses the cute snowman from Punch Pals, and the little snowflake from the same set.  I love this colour combo - Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand, Whisper White and Brushed Gold.    It is fresh and crisp and somehow Retro at the same time.

The second card is deceptively simple.  It is a one-layer card, yes, but there were a few steps involved in it:


 




And inside:
It used Gold Encore ink, the 11/4 inch circle punch, scallop circle punch, gold embossing powder, heat gun, Stamp-a-majig, Stazon ink, blender pens, and glitter.


My daughters, aged 9 and 5, were very keen to stamp with My Ladies, and they made some cards too:







My eldest explained that the Penguin was standing on the presents so he was tall enough to see out the "window".  Of course!
My youngest daughter made this creation for Santa with some stamps from Kikki K and dazzling diamonds glitter:


Don't worry if you missed this class; I'm running them for the next 3 Sunday afternoons.  Contact me for details.

Remember that the Spring Mini finishes at the end of November (a week!)  so if there is something you have had your eye on, like the gorgeous scallop oval punch, white Stayzon, Stazon Remover, Tree Trimmings, that yummy Parisian Blue SDSP, etc.....contact me ASAP to get your hands on it!

Stay tuned to this blog tomorrow (Monday, 23rd November 2009) for a very exciting PRIZE GIVEAWAY!    Can't wait!

Happy Sunday Night everyone!

Oh I love the peek-a-boo card (if I can call it that) and your daughter's idea with the penguin is so CUTE.
