Letter to Santa


Brrr what a cold day yesterday, couldn't believe we woke up to snow. We stayed in all day, nice and cosy. I sorted out  our Christmas card list, out in inserts and got them all written. I only have 4 more left to make for us to send but I do have some orders and more stock to make as well. I am always organised for Christmas but normally I have far more than 4 cards to make for us. I shall make a few more though as we always seem to get some we hadn't expected.

So onto my card. As soon as I saw this cute new image from Pink Gem I just had to get it and print it off. I used the pre coloured version but you also get the digi to colour. 
Image - Post Box Mice
Papers - Dovecraft North Pole
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Dies - Joanna Sheen postbox, MFT pierced rectangles
Other - card candi, pearl pen, Stickles

  Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 great sketch which I rotated


I am so pleased with my new camera. The screen swivels out enabling me to take much straighter pictures which means I hardly have to straighten them in Photoshop. I do feel the pictiures are better quality too. There will still be some popping up on my blog which were taken with the old camera for a while as I have several cards not blogged yet which I hold in reserve.

A fabulously festive design and lovely to see it entered in our challenge at Creative Inspirations too!
I am not surprised to hear how far ahead you are with your Christmas cards...you are one organised lady!
The snow you had was more surprising...we haven't had any but it has been very cold.
My camera has a flip screen too...but I still manage to get wonky photos if the card is standing up rather than lying flat! Thanks goodness for photo editing software!
Big hugs, Kat xx
