Wot no image!?

Ooh what a chilly day it's been, so chilly that the stable cat followed me back to the house this afternoon and sat outside the patio doors meowing at me. I let her in for a cuddle and then marched back down the field to give her more food in her barn.Think I may well have started something!! Apart from doing the horse today I have stayed in the warm, wrapped all the presents that I have bought (so far) and finished writing my cards, a couple of which  I am here to share. (I had forgotten making these!)



The Memory Box Grand Merry Christmas die came in handy again together with some Marianne snowflakes. You can see I used the sparkly ones set in the plain pearl card and vice versa. Both ribbons came from a local haberdashers and the dazzler from my stash. 

I am entering these challenges

These are lovely Sarah and will be great for posting, as not too deep. Postage costs are ridiculous at the moment.

A great idea for a quick postable card.
Wasn't too bad here at lunch time but the wind got up this aft and it was biting! Al has given up trying to put some lights up in the barn and come back inside for a warm!

Sarah. I have been making cards using this memory box die. Love how you have designed yours with those snow flakes. Yes I think you have started something with the cat, tigar the stable cat at work would love to be a house cat, but two collie dogs won't allow that ever!!! Hazel xx

Two gorgeous cards - they are a perfect mix of CAS design with a touch of luxury from the bling and ribbon :-)
To be honest, much as I love to colour, cards without colouring are the only way to get all the cards done that I need... and when they look as good as your two then who needs stamps?!

Hugs, Kat x

Ooh, I'm feeling that chill over here in balmy South Carolina. We had a very pleasantly warm day (high 60-s - Farenheit). Was just at a Scottish blog, and they had snow & ice. Brrrr. I love this MB die. I finally got it, haven't used it yet. You've got 2 really snazzy & cheery cards with the red & white, and those snowflakes embedded into the white c/s really show off this die wonderfully well. Stay warm. Glad you could be inside & cozy. TFS & Merry Christmas
