Winter Wishes ...

Been a while since my last post, I did say as one of my new year resolutions I would make
one Christmas card a week so there wouldn't be a mad rush, needless to say that didn't happen.  I decided to make one a day in the month of October, well I have made some but I am still behind.  One down many many more to come.  I did purchase several of the new Stamp & Cutz from Magnolia but the others weren't Christmas so I inked this one up first!

I have made a bauble shaped card today using one of the new Stamp & Cutz from Magnolia, this one is called Cocoa Tilda & Snow Flurries, so that is the stamp and snowflake dies as a duo.

I have also used the Magnolia log stamp from way back when.  Flowers, buttons, ribbons, pine cone charms, star die, tree die, berries.  The branches, twigs & holly are from various Doohickey Club kits. Hand stitched & coloured with Promarkers.  The bauble card blank itself was cut on my Silhouette.

The pretty papers are from NITWIT COLLECTIONS

Beautiful sparkle, stunning.

You're so tweet ...

Very clean and simple today, some more new stamps which I did & notice past tense there, well
I loved the images as soon as I set eyes on them but (in my opinion) they don't stamp very well.
They are clear stamps and I know all stamps have different needs but I have been stamping for too many years now and I was disappointed with these ones, not producing a crisp image, only my opinion.

This stamp set; at is includes a few different images is from Basik & K called 'Basik & Sparrows'
and I just wanted a quick thank you card.  Hand stitched, coloured with Promarkers & matted on red cardstock with a small pearl to finish.
