Christmas with the Cuties

Hello and welcome to another new week and also to another new theme at

I loved this new theme Add some Holly as it was the perfect opportunity to air a new die set that I bought in the Crafters Companion New Year Sale.

Our sponsor is Sasayaki Glitter and I used Girl and Puppy in the snow,
coloured with Promarkers, to compliment the Holly patterned paper.

Well, that's another card added to the Christmas box. Hope you will join in and add to your festive greeting card is only eight months away after all.....just saying!!

Wishing you all a good week xx

Debra K. said...

Hi Sarah. Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my post. I got the Spellbinders Triple Floral Decorative Elements from a company called Icon UK for £14.95 with free p&p. I used another Square die to cut the middle out with. I find it's very often the cheapest die seller. Hope this helps :). Debra x

Hi Sarah

A really lovely Christmas card. Love the image and your dies.

Pleased to hear I am not the only one who has days that last a nano second!

I hope all is well with you and you are having a good bank holiday.

Weddings have taken over here so unfortunately my blog has taken a back seat for a while :-(

I am envious of your Christmas card stocks Sarah - mine are looking very sorry - even though I started the year with good intentions!

Love Jules xx
