Mum and Dads christmas Card/Quick girly Card

Just made a quick card to put in with my blog candy parcel to Tasha, used a ready coloured image and some of the scraps from the DCWV All dressed up stack left over from my previous card. Love the colours on these papers, as you know pink and black are my favourite colours.

Thought i would also show you a card that i made over christmas for my in laws. I used an image of this adorable bear, the papers are from the DCWV Speciality papers. I used a punch for the icicles with gems from the Yellow Moon mail order. The letters are die cuts of the Quickutz Merry and Bright set. Sentiment from Anna-Marie designs.
Hope to have something else to show you in a day or two.
Tuesday i am going to Capture the magic with my friend Katie. I am looking forward to seeing what wonderful goodies they might have on sale. Must keep control of my spending though, have already been tempted by the various sales going on right now!!!
Am thinking about running a swap in January, thought maybe i could put together a list of bloggers wanting particular stamped images and what they could offer in return either stamped images or maybe something else like papers , ribbons or anything else that they have to spare. This way we could cut down on our spending in January, as it is generally a month where finances are a bit tight. If anyone would be interested in this, perhaps you could drop me an email. My email address is . If there is enough interest i will start setting things up at the beginning of January.
Speak again soon.
