A little bit of Christmas...

...hello everyone, hope you're all keeping well and staying warm. I'm trying to fight off a cold at the moment and so I'm not feeling 100%. Roll on the weekend (thats not a good thing to be saying on a Monday evening!).

I haven't really made any Christmas cards in ages so I thought I'd make a couple....first of all I have something a little bit different to show you....

I like girlie cards, so I decided to try and make a girlie Christmas card! I've used gold card, along with my favourite black and white polka dot card. I used my trusty stencil to create my glam shoes. This card is perfect for two challenges that I've found in the last couple of days:

Crafty Catz - colour challenge - black and white and one other colour
Bah! Humbug! - Elegance

The second card is slightly more traditional, and it features a frosty friend:

I've used silver card and some more polka dot card for the backing, I then created my little snowman out of white card. I've accessorised with some stripey paper for his hat and scarf. This card fits in with the challenge over at Allsorts, where they are calling for projects that feature spots and stripes!

Right, now I'm off to bed...hopefully I'll be feeling better in the morning!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Those shoes are definitely elegant - although I think I would break my neck if I tried to wear them but still they look good.
Good to see you back with us at Bah! Humbug! Love your new profile picture.
