Catching Up....

Good Morning,
I had a lovely morning yesterday with my grandaughter, she seems to have shot up all of a sudden as I hadn't seen her for a couple of weeks. She started nursery 3 days a week about a fortnight ago and she absolutely loves it, she was full of chatter yesterday telling Nanny everything they do there and all about her new friend Charlie. The nursery staff  tell my daughter that they are besotted with each other and hold hands all day lol even while they are eating lunch ....they are nearly 3 !! Bless them :)

Anyway I have a couple of cards I made at the weekend to show you, the first is a Christmas card....

Very simple and quick this one, I made a top folding A6 blank first, then on another piece of white card which I had already printed with a Pink Petticoat sentiment I stamped the gorgeous reindeer with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with fine detail gold powder. I love this little stamp which was a magazine freebie, I love all the detail in it and it stamps beautifully. I just added a little dot of red stickles for his nose :) and then matted onto red card. 
As I said very quick and easy and great for batch making if you have loads of christmas cards to do at the last minute like I always seem to !

My 2nd card was probably even quicker lol (lately I haven't had any time for colouring but still need my crafting fix !) all I did was print one of the Sketchy Flowers from Digistamp Boutique onto some dp from Tactile Studio, stamp the sentiment (magazine freebie) and added diamond stickles to the image. Matted onto Kraft card.

Back soon with a couple more cards from the weekend,
Hugs, Kaz xx

Two lovely cards Karen. The little deer is a lovely stamp. What a super freebie.

You must have been pleased to hear that your little granddaughter had settled in so well and is enjoying herself. It sounds as if she's made a special friend in Charlie. She sounds a dear little girl. Barbxx
