Merry Christmas One and All

Oh wow.It's three weeks since I have been on line.I had to get away from the computer and make 90 odd handmade Christmas cards.I made them all using five fairly simple Christmas themed cards I made at camp so I had the prototypes done.Every spare second I had I worked on them.I got them all in the post over the last week...PHEW.I have even had time today between the Christmas cooking(for cold meats for tomorrow)to draw a simple drawing that I may use as next years Christmas cards.

The first one is a textured cuttlebug card using and After Midnight Art Stamps image and coloured with Polished Pigments

Next was an Opals paper bg that I ran thru the Cuttlebug in several different directions,an inkjet water transfer of a vintage Angel image,stamped Christmas words on tissue and printed a Christmas quote.
Cuttlebug bg done on gold paper,vintage Santa printed on bleached calico treated with Inkjet Set solution and some Vintage trim behind the image.I added some Dymo Label Christmas words at the top and the bottom after I took this photo to finish it off

Cuttlebug embossed Holly on white card,painted with Twinkling H2O's,random stamping around the edge of the central image using Adirondack Butterscotch ink.Base card sanded to distress it

Lastly is a huge card made using another After Midnight Art Stamps image.Love this reindeer image.I coloured it with Twinkling H2O's and sanded the base card again

As it is Christmas eve here in Oz I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas for 2008 and hope 2009 brings you all Creativity,love and laughter

The Christmas cards you made look wonderful - no wonder you had no computer time - it would have taken ages to make those. Awesome work.
