Catch Up Time!

It's been a bit of a battle getting ready for Christmas this year as I had to have an operation at the beginning of December which took longer than anticipated to recover from.  However, I made it, even if I was still making Christmas decorations on Christmas Eve!

This post is to share the different designs of cards I made...

After seeing this card demonstrated, I thought it would be relatively straightforward and ideal for batchmaking - how wrong could I be!  So fiddly and took me ages to clean the die each time so settled on six in the end!

I settled for this card for the batchmaking process as being off ill and unable to do much, I found it relaxing to sit with a lap tray colouring.  However, it wasn't without its problems - unfortunately, the only cards I had in this size were not made of super smooth card stock so the alcohol pens had a tendency to bleed!

I love this cute image but my colouring isn't too good!

All of the above are from Which? Craft and I must say the stamps are such good quality and a pleasure to use.  They colour beautifully - used Kuretake watercolour pens with some Kuretake paints for the wings and Pink Petticoat gingham card.

Finally, my favourite!  If I had more time, I would have made a few of these but needed a special card for my best pal and her Husband. Followed Anna Marie's design but decided to add a deer and was very pleased with the result!
