Another Christmas Card

Hello
Just popping in to share another Christmas card using the Pinkfresh Studio papers ...



I'm determined to use all these papers and not hoard them like I tend to with pretty papers and I my Memory Box deer dies have been well used ...


 I haven't bought any new Christmas dies this year other than the dies to match my Wplus9 Winter Pals stamps.
Having recently replaced my craft room furniture, I have had to reorganise my stamps, dies and tools amongst other things... It made me realise how many stamps/dies I used only once and really shouldn't have bought. Then there are many like those stag dies which are a few years old but I use a lot - same with the  Lil'Inkers stitched rectangles. 
As far as tools go, my best buys this year has been the Misti ... I love it! It's really been worth the investment.
What's been your best buy this year?

Enjoy the upcoming weekend...

Till soon

Such a pretty card Mackie! That patterned paper is beautiful and that deer is striking!

I still haven't gotten a Misti, but maybe I should buy that for my retirement gift to myself--haha! First job after retirement is to finish organizing--probably have to mostly start over since I never finished last time! So much stuff I might use if I knew where it was! I really love this card, Ros--still haven't opened my paper pack. Next year my cards will be made with those papers!

Beautiful Ros!! I love the circle frame around the deer, what a great way to highlight your focal piece! Fabulous papers too!! hugs :)

I really like how you added the die cut circle into the design. I can tell you are really enjoying those papers. I have tons of neglected crafty supplies---stamps and dies included. sigh..... I'm trying to stick with only buying sets that I know I will use repeatedly so my best buys this year are some of those. Hugs!

Love your pretty card with the deer and fab design! I've got lots of purging to do with craft supplies. So many stamps that I don't use. I bought a Misti, too, but do need to use it more. I did buy some circular dies from Simon Says that I use often , so I guess that's my best buy this year.

I like the part circle and the silhouette stag Ros! He really pops on the card. Very pretty :)

Lorraine said...

Such a gorgeous card. I have the same "problem" with dies and stamps used only once and those that are favorites. Makes for very expensive cards. But the fun and sense of accomplishment has no dollar amount.

Barbara said...

Wonderful card! Love that strong black deer against the background in white and pastels. I guess the best thing I bought this year is not craft related... my new stove!

Lisette Baker said...

Love how you have offset the circle and how the paper looks behind it. Am definitely going to try harder not to keep buying new supplies next year. I think my best buy has been acrylic blocks for my unmounted stamps!

The Misti is on my wishlist (-;
My best buy this year? Sorry, I don't know, but last year I bought the Envelope Punch Board and I use it frequently. I really like to purchase an Reindeer die, but I haven't decided which one. I like yours (-:

And I really really like your card. This patterned paper is just adorable!

Have a nice evening,
Judith

Beautiful papers but it is of course how you use them and you use them fabulously and this is such an adorable card. X

Such a pretty card, Ros, love the triangles in the background! Happy Holidays!

Gosh, I love that bold, black silhouette! So striking! And my best purchase of the year was my Kuretake watercolors. Actually, they were a gift from my hubby, but his money is my money. So, great purchase ;)!

So soft and so very pretty :)

Marina said...

Love the colours and geometric shapes - this is so on trend!
