Christmas Cards

I have been making a few cards of late and thought I would share. Very simple but I think they have turned out OK considering I haven't made a lot of cards before.
Now my DH just has to make me send them to people. He thought it was hilarious that I was making cards!! (I am also known for being slack and not sending out my Christmas cards!!) I am going to be good this year.....but I think it's getting late and if I post tomorrow they still might not make it to their destination by Christmas LOL.....maybe next year!!!

The Festive Season.....

is almost here and so is the hot weather. Extremely hot here today and really humid. I got up early this morning and decided to scrap before it got too hot. I got some Christmas photo's from Kimberley of the two babies and used one of Erin to do my entry in the December White with 1 challenge which is to use white with festive colours and bling. OOHhhh and I forgot to mention that I was lucky enough to win last months challenge and received a $30 voucher from the lovely Delana at Uproar to scrapmore. Also on the home I put up our Christmas Tree and with the help of DGS Matthew. It actually felt special again, as CHristmas is all about family and traditions. I will post some photo's shortly.

Here are a couple of the photo's that were taken by Kim Cross of Matthew and Erin, and my layout for the WW1 Challenge and also a Christmas card I made this afternoon. On the layout I have used kindy glitz and paint splatters, a few gems and I also added gems and glitz to the Kaiser bauble rubons. The little red butterflies are printed onto transperancy but I actually scanned the layout and they look like they are sitting flat, IRL they have dimension and their wings sit up nicely. Unfortunately the scan doesn't do the layout justice, but I hope you can get the effect.
