GETTING ON WITH CHRISTMAS


After stalling for a while, I've managed to get on with a few of my cards...
Here I've used a sheet of Bazzil 12"x12" and made two 6x6ish cards from it. They're actually 5 3/4 " square to fit the envelopes I have.
My pet hate is throwing bits away and so managed to use the leftover strips for the Peachy Keen challenge sketch using an embossing folder to make them pop more.
I've used the adorable digi image from http://www.teddybo.com/

I'm entering these challenges...

and here is the second card I made...


Many thanks for stopping by :D

I'm glad I'm not the only one who tries to use every last scrap of paper. I did the same yesterday. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card with us at Teddy Bo,

Two gorgeous cards Dizzy! Ha Ha!! That's the kind of thing I'd do, using those strips up. I know the amount of stuff you've got, so it's even funnier! Thanks for joining in with us again this week at Peachy Keen petal. Good luck! Viv xx
