Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and that 2009 is not causing too many troubles just yet. I had a very relaxing Christmas with my family... my 2 beautiful children were very excited with the surprises that Santa left for them under the tree. There is something very special about Christmas and little children isn't there?
I have been a very bad blogger lately... actually I have been quite disorganied. I only sent out my Christmas cards on New Years Eve!
I have some cards to show you today that we made at a class I had in early December. It was an Emergency Birthday Card Kit. We made 8 cards, with envelopes in a Bag-a-lope.
All the cards used the same stamp set-Eastern Blooms which is in the Summer Mini Catalogue. For these cards, I decided to use something that I have never used before- Kraft cardstock. I combined it with Blue Bayou and Cameo Coral- again a colour combo I have not used before. I added some Kraft Taffeta ribbon, Blue Bayou Double Stitched ribbon, White Grosgrain ribbon dyed Cameo Coral and some hemp Twine. I also made an amazing discovery- Sahara Sand ink matches very well with Kraft card. Sorry I don't have a photo of the Bag-a-lope sorry because I gave mine away as a Christmas gift before taking a photo of it!
I hope you like these cards.
More soon I prosmise!
