It's a White Christmas

or at least on my cards.  I've been busy making some Christmas cards that use white.

I got a new Sizzix embossing folder the other day and I've been using it to make some cards ~ all using the same design

Peace Love and Joy


This one used a Hero Arts sentiment from Wishes Come True.  The poinsettia is made with a Spellbinder die set.  I used one of the biggest flowers to make the leaves.  I sponged them with Cut Grass distress ink and finished with a yellow gem.    I made a few other using other sentiments from Hero Arts and Inkadinkado.   I entered this card into White Out challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

And then yesterday I made another one

Joy to the World


This one used a number of the smaller stamps from "The Greatest Gift" set to set a little scene.  The sentiment is from another set " Merriest Christmas Wishes"  I finished it with a red ribbon and bow.  Also entering into the ABNB challenge.

Also entering into Moxie Fab World's Christmas cards.

It's going to be an early morning tomorrow in our household.  Hubby is being picked up at
6.00am to head off to Palmerston North to the BMW drivers school for the day..... It's an hour's flight on a charter flight, then a helicopter transfer to the raceway.  They get to drive in a V8 for some Hot Laps, get instructions on good driving,  ~ a really fun day.  He won't be home till very late as the charter flight doesn't get back to Auckland till 10.00pm.
