Another christmas greeting

Since this seemed to go down so well yesterday I thought I would make another.

christmas greeting

I've not done this for a while so I hope it works.

I was admiring a stamp the lovely Clare Brown had used on one of her christmas cards and wanted to duplicate it using photoshop. I couldnt find a font that looked similar though until yeterday when Scrapdolly shared a halloween transparancy on her blog and told me the font I needed was pharmacy.

It didnt take a minute to make and I thought I would share. I've uploaded it as a psd file so that anyone who wants to can play about with sizes etc.

More cards.

Rubbish photos - I really must try taking them in daylight.

This is a scraplift of a card by Tracie on the Penny Black Saturday challenge site. I made the snowflake background paper by using studio g stamps and green and red cats eye chalk inks. The red scalloped edge I cut using the rounded corner punch technique and then run it through the swirl cuttlebug folder in my zipemate. The decoupage reindeer is a free download from

Last years papermania christmas paper pack, Stampendous retro stamps and Studio g sentiment stamp, coloured with watercolour pencils, stickles added for dimention and a peice of floss to hold it all together.

I'm rather chuffed with this one, a bit more work. Paper is Foofala from 2005, layered onto green cardstock, ontop a strip of ribbon. Santa is image from weeds and wildflowers 'A Wildflower holiday' Stamp is another Studio g, pointsette is quickutz cut from tissue paper.

Not as expected

I had hoped that this blog would get me crafting more and I was going to attempt to get a little something on here every day. Hmmm, not happened has it. In fact this really hasnt turned out at all like expected as apart from one LO all I have been doing is Christmas cards of late, and I really didnt want this to become a card blog.

However, my reason for the blog was to keep track of everything I make and how I make it, supplies ect. so I will have to put up my cards.

Here goes (sorry quality of photos is not good, hoping santa will bring me a new camera)

Background, cuttlebug winter words folder
Magnolia tilda stamp (tilda with sled)
Crimson and Blake watercolour pencils
Ice blue cats eye chalk ink
