The Last of the Christmas Cards. . . . . . . honest!


Good morning one and all. Hope that your New Year celebrations went well. I was a good girl as I had work New Years Day.
Well, Kate has let the cat out of the bag, so to speak, for those of you who had been guessing where I was working. Yes, its the place "where the deer and the antelope play" and Kate, there is a new store opened in Dundee a few weeks ago, which would be your nearest.
Had a tootle to my local independent craft store yesterday to spend a voucher that Nesta had given me. Came away with some sales bargains and actually managed to play in the afternoon for the first time in ages. How I have missed crafting! I will have to get myself back into the swing of things, in between shifts.

Now, I promise that these are the last of the Christmas cards. I know that we are all trying to forget the sprouts (I know I am!), stuffing and getting more intimate with a turkey than is natural but I wanted to show them, even though they are not exactly exciting, as they are good for batch making. I made a few of these for the neighbours. I will just list the ingredients as everything has just been matted and layered.

Ingredients 
5x7 base cards
Soft gold card
Sky blue card
SB Fanciful Holiday Reindeer
SB Snowflake Pendants
SB M-bossibilities Holiday Magic
Foam Pads
Red Nose Bling



I also embossed the envelopes with the Holiday Magic folder.

Well, that's me for today. I will be back at the weekend with a non-Christmas offering and hopefully a bit of news. . . . . . . . . watch this space!!!

  2. Hi Ang, I always like seeing cards that are good for multiple makes and these are very pretty ones. Love the embossing folder. I think that will be on my wish list for next year. Oops! I mean this year! Don't work too hard. Hugs Christine xx

  6. Good morning Ang, love the reindeer card, as has been said, ideal for batch making. I'm hoping to do a couple of cards today but I might just sit down with my knitting. I'm using up all my part balls making a lap blanket or two - was supposed to keep me occupied during the dark nights but it is quite addictive!! Best wishes Jackie

  10. Hell Ang, OOphs, sorry, I hope I've not been a pain in saying where you worked.
    I'm a long way away from Dundee though, and the Gold Bus doesn't go there, but you nerver know,maybe one day, I'll get there.

    Love your cards, both so different, but so lovely.
    My crafting enthusium has gone in to hiding, i've spent a good few hours setting up my new laptop, managed quite well. I've lost the lovely colourful heading for my blog page though, how I managed that I don't know.

    Have a great weekend Ang whatever you do, hugs Kate x

    Well Ang - it is still a secret to me as I don't have a clue what The Range is!
    Happy New Year - you are off to a good start - or should I say you ended 2013 well!

  12. Hi Ang,

    Lovely cards, love them both. I don't get sick of seeing Christmas cards, show them all year doesn't bother me, after all most of us make them throughout the year to save time, I have not showed the card I made for my son as I thought people would be sick of seeing Christmas cards lol! I shall save it for this year now, meaning Dec lol!
    So you work in The Range???lol, I never knew, we have a good one round the corner from us which I visit on a regular basis! Hope they don't work you too hard?

    Love & Hugs
