'Tis the season to be jolly...

tra la lala la lala la la. Finished my last batch of cards orders last night. Seriously thinking about not taking on any more now before Crimbo (apart from Mum, G and my own). Now I can spend time concentrating on my jewellery orders and playing with my Craft Fairies Design Team Kit - yippee.

Here are the final cards. It was actually an order of 5, but 2 of them were the stocking design I posted a couple of days ago.

I'm quite chuffed with this one. Papers are English Paper Co - really wish I had got a big batch of about half a dozen of the designs and not the bumper mix pack, as there are about 6 I really love and the rest I don't have a clue what to do with. Dies are Sizzix and a gorgeous Bosskut Rudolph I borrowed from the lovely Rhi last year. The diecut tree is part of I swap I received over at the Crafts by Carolyn forum.

This one uses one of the English Paper Co designs I don't really know what to do with, although I love the one with the stitched ribbon I've used on the bottom. Dies used are Sizzix and Quickutz, brad is from my stash and holly is made using Fimo in the Sculpey Kringle & Snowman mould.

This one is to be given to a little girl who has been in hosiptal for the last couple of weeks. I agreed with my customer that it might be nice to have a little bit of a Christmas theme (without being too Christmassy). Papers are yet again English Paper Co (another lot I don't really know what to do with as I find lilacs & pinks quite difficult to use for Christmas). Big tag is Sizzix, snowflakes are a mixture of a Zip-e-mate and some I received in the Crafts by Carolyn forum Christmas diecut swap; button is from my stash.

Thanks for looking xoxo
