Christmas Cards All Year

January 2014 and a new challenge site where we get to create Christmas cards all year, yes you read that correctly, all year! Go here to read more.

Made six cards this week, am definitely on a roll as my hands are not too bad at the moment.


Cards 1-4

All created from cards i made in December, they were to test out different finishes. Once i looked at them again i cut off the area that contained the writing and decided to try a new curvy shaped front. 

All the cards were created using Pan Pastel backgrounds on the main area and a mixture of Fresco Paints, Portfolio Pastels and Promarkers.





All sentiments are from Dyan Reaveley, i love them they are so funny!


Love Karin from Stampotique, added googly eyes to make her look like she is having way too good a time!


Peggy from Stampotique just looks like she is getting sore eyes making so many Christmas decorations.

I am entering these cards into the challenge over at Christmas Fun Challenge Blog and

 Pan Pastel Challenge Blog, where frost or snow is the theme.

Thanks for looking, looking forward to your comments. xxx
