Christmas Cards

Hello...
 Happy Thanksgiving 
to all who celebrate this tradition ... I hope you have a wonderful day!

I've been busy organising for Thursday Club... my group want to make some Christmas cards this week ... It will be my last craft class for this year because the following weeks we will be having various entertainment for them including a Christmas Party ... where of course Santa arrives with presents!

I'm made a couple of cards myself ... and both have been done using the bits that were left over from other things ... It's no wonder that I never use up Christmas stuff ... Lol! 


Sometimes things on my desk just seem to go together whereas I can spend hours thinking up what paper to use etc.,
I used the inlaid die technique again and the paper I used for the word die ... well, let just say it's been in my stash for well over a year ... maybe two! 


... And I wasn't going to toss out the negative that was left over ...


Not when I could make this sparkly card ...


I hope you can see the glitter ... I think both of these cards will qualify for the challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash


You know looking at this last card ... I'm think what great antlers those fern things would make ... hmmm ... another card on the horizon I think ...

Thanks for stopping by - have a beautiful day

oh *WOW*!!! i looooooooooooove both of these, what a PERFECT version (or rather VERSIONS, plural!) of the inlaid diecut technique... i love that they are opposites using the same ingredients and yet such different (but equally gorgeous!) results! and again i say WOW!!! <3 <3 <3
