Finally I have stopped feeling quite so ropey and had a birthday card breather so I can make a few christmas cards.
Started with the lovely Penny Black fantasy tree which I have had all year (yet again with visions of being very organised for xmas, ahh well!).

It was stamped in versamagic chalk white on to black and accented with black diamond and frosted lace stickles.

Also stole Mum's cuttlebug to add a background of snow dots, some great spotty ribbon and used the fab Stampin Up oval punch set for a greeting.

The card was also finished with the fab card candy from craftwork cards.

I had to then use something cute for my next card!

Found these Penny Black chaps in a bargain bin (so I had to!). Coloured them with copics and used glamour dust to accent the hats. Some Papermania background paper and card candy were used for fun and a Hobbyart word stamp - a card that makes you smile I think!

Lots more to play with - must crack on!


  1. Two great cards Jill - glad I'm not the only one who can't resist stamps when I see them.

    Pleased to hear you are feeling better.

  2. Love the fantasy tree card, and glad Mums come in handy sometimes :)
