Hi there! Today was a good day, I spent the morning trying to tire out my two year old and was rewarded with him taking a nice long nap, which meant I got to play! I still need to make a lot more Christmas cards and time is running out, but the card I created… Read More Monochrome Christmas with Snowflake Sentiments
I love combining purple and gold for Christmas projects, such a rich and sumptious mix. Here I have created a card with matching gift wrap and tag. I kept the card very simple, layering up different elements to build up depth. I used one of the lovely foil snowflakes from Stampin’ Up! to add some… Read More Snowflake sentiments in purple and gold

Hurrah! First Christmas card done. I fell in love with the gorgeous Reindeer Games stamp set from Mama Elephant when I first saw their Christmas release. When I went to buy it though it was out of stock everywhere but luckily I was able to pre-order it. Whilst waiting for it to be delivered I… Read More Merry Monday #177 Christmas lights and glitter
Second post of the evening with this card which I would like to enter into this week’s Merry Monday Challenge which is themed ‘The Words Have It’.

Second post of the day with a very quick and literal take on the Merry Monday challenge this week which is to include a Christmas present on your card.
