Some cards from me - At long last!

I havent really been doing any crafting this week, I have attempted to finish a cross stitch cover kit of Eeyore (A christmas design) but still not even finished that! Anyway, some new cards from me!

The first one, I found a christmas tree made of spools of cotton, which I though would be great for a stitchy friend! I have used a piece of A5 red card from my papermill stash, and mounted the cross stitched piece on a bit of marbled green card, attached a few red paper embelleshments, and some of the green ribbon that I got in my Goody Bag, and finished it off with a green 'Merry Christmas' peel off. Not to bad me thinks, not one of my best, but not bad!

The second card, is another cross stitch cover kit! I quite like Lumpy, he is really cute! He is from Winnie the Pooh, incase you didnt know! For this card again, ive used some hammered effect A5 card from my stash, mounted Lumpy onto some purple paper, and added a few peel off stars. I thought I couldnt use this as a christmas card, so its a birthday card. I have added a strip of ribbon that was gifted to me by Lynn, and added a metal/fabric flower.

Next card, I have coloured a Magnolia stamped image using Reeves watercolour pencils, mounted on blue & burgandy card, added a few peel of stars, and some rope ribbon, a bit of sparkle and a 'Merry Christmas' peel off. Not one of my favs again, but hey!

And finally, a Lili of the Valley die cut fairy card! I have used another piece of red card from my stash, cut two triangles from the Merry Christmas backing papers (One blues, the other red and green) and added a bit of organza ribbon. I have added 2 clear zooms, and a Lili of the Valley sentiment to the centre.

Anyway, I doubt I will get much crafting done this weekend, we are meant to be going to Swindon for one of Alex's friends house party! Should be interesting, as he recons we will be driving home at 2am, something which I doubt! I plan to join a few challenges soon as my card stash is getting a little bit bigger, and its pay day on Monday YIPPEE!
