Simple Stories Claus and Co, 9,10,11,12..

IMG_2957 (Medium)IMG_2958 (Medium)Another 4 cards made with Simple Stories Claus and Co paper collection, along with the matching washi tape and journalling cards. The great thing with this collection is all I had to add was some ribbon and bling for a bit of texture, and not even that on some of them.We will take a short break of a day or two from this collection so that I can show you some non-christmas cards just for a bit of a change! Yesterday I took a box of leftover bits and pieces over to mums, and we sat and made 20 more christmas cards to donate to the nursing home my older sister is residing in. We have started to do this, and the residents are truly grateful to be able to go to the box and pick out cards for their family members. we ( my sister and I) have only been doing this for a couple of months and already 100 cards have been put to good use.It’s great because I have finally found a terrific use for all my odds and ends.Today is another hot day here in Adelaide and the last day of my holidays, so time to polish my work shoes and dig out my uniform! til tomorrow….

Christmas cards 2012 – simple…

Very little christmas purchases used on this one! The cuttlebug folder is Winter Tress, and I used my Tim Holtz embossing diffuser to leave an oval at the bottom plain so  that I could stamp straight onto the cardstock. The stamp used came from Stampin Up Welcome Christmas, then all I had to do was add some thin gold ribbon, and die cut a flower from my Die – namics Upsey daisies die. I used stampin Up Chery Cobbler and handsome Hunter cardstock to try to make it look like a Poinsetta. had a lovely morning with my Ladies this morning, and spent a little time this afternoon in the craft room, mainly looking for things – I have to clean that room out!Til tomorrow…
