Two Christmas Cards

Stamp and Create Product Spotlight
Are you running out of time to get cards done and want something simple yet effective? I have used Christmas Clara by Kraftin Kimmie and paper pieced the image using Tis the season paper by Kaisercraft. She has designed the card to look liek a present using red organza ribbon with the image as a tag and just finished it with a few pearls.

Challenges -
Charisma - Christmas gift (looks like a gift)
Allsorts - Last Minute Projects
Totally Papercrafts - Paper piecing

Magical Mondays - Fairytale Christmas

Sorry for the poor photo had to take in the kitchen where the electric light is brightest, we are all suffering really bad with a cough and cold that feels like flu. Poor little Henry is being sick when he coughs. I have the boys at home tucked up on the sofa under duvet's watching disney films.
The theme on magical mondays this week is fairytale christmas. I have used an old magnolia stamp called Alva and paper pieced her. The papers are basic grey but I don't know which pack as they are from my scraps draw. The flower is an old papermania that I have had for years and the spacer can be purchased from stamp and create. The image was cut out and placed on a background of embossed snowflake using a cuttlebug folder, the flower soft looks yellow in the picture even though in real life it is white, please explain that one too me????

What lovely cards and your first one is really clever making it look like a present.

I too have a little one curled up on the sofa coughing up flem and has really knocked her off her feet and hasnt eaten anything since yesterday morning - apparently think its something going around school!

Anyway hope you all get better real soon in time for Christmas.

Fabulous cards, hun!! So sorry you are the family are under the weather. I'm feeling a little achy myself this afternoon. I never made it to the post office!! Got the orders packaged, but just felt too poor to go out. I'll force myself to go out in the morning, though.
Sending you hugs!
