Lovely as a Tree

Hi Everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, sorry for being awol, I had so much to do over the past few weeks I decided to give myself a blogging break.  Anyway I had a fantastic Christmas and I'm ready to get back to the crafting, even my 5 year old thinks its about time I got back to it as he told me this morning that we should make cards again lol. These are two cards I made for Christmas but just didn't get them uploaded, they are both using one of the stamps from the 'Lovely as a Tree' set. The first card has just been stamped with Chocolate Chip ink onto Close to Cocoa cardstock, the second was more time consuming as I made a wreath style background using one of the smaller stamps from the set and brayered some card and stamped over the top, love this effect.
I am definately starting my Christmas cards early next year, talk about getting caught out! I was still making them on the 23rd lol. Well I have a beautiful new set to show you that arrived this morning and I can't wait to get to play with it so watch this space!
