"Bauble Burst" 8x8 Christmas Card.

Good morning. It's very sunny here today, as it was yesterday. I had a craft free day as I desperately had to get stuck into the garden, front and back. It was starting to look like a jungle - well the back did anyway. I kept putting it of and putting it off. When I did decide I would do it, it rained. Thankfully yesterday was a glorious but slightly chilly day but meant I got stuck in and got it done. 
 Here is an 8x8 Christmas card I made the other day using a recycled Christmas card I got last year. The products I used are as followed;

 Recycled Christmas card front.
 8x8 card blank - Craftwork Cards.
 Bauble embossed white background card - Kanban.
 Red mirri card - Hunkydory.
 4mm white pearls - Hunkydory. Coloured with Poppy Red Promarker.
 3D foam pads - Stix2.
 Tape Runner - Tonic Studios.

"Special Poem just for you" A5 poem postcards.

There's just something about the festive poems I adore for this years Christmas. As to the previous blog with all the cards Iv made so far with the little book of festive poetry, these cards have all been made with the Hunkydory A5 festive poetry post cards. Some have already been posted on my card creations page and many haven't. Each design comes on one A5 page with a poem and matching design image. They can be used separately however Iv chose to keep them together to give a much elegant and special Christmas card. These are just some of the cards Iv made so far with many more to come soon. They will be available from Francos cafe this year in Carnoustie. 

"Poetry in motion" card selection

Afternoon, thought I'd take the chance to make the most of this bit of free time and blog some cards. These are all the cards Iv made so far using Hunkydorys "little book of festive poetry". Some have already been on my card creations site - How ever there's some towards the bottom that have just been made in the past 48 hours that haven't been on my CC facebook page yet so thought I'd take the opportunity to blog them in this one post. There are still so many more to be created but these are a start. Any questions regarding any of them then please just ask.
