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!

Hi Donna, your card as so beautiful, the brayered card was definitely worth the extra time, love it.
Wishing you a Happy New Year incase I don't make it back between now and then
hugs Mandy xx
