It's the holidays!!!

Finally we have finished the term, so, as promised here are a few more of my Christmas cards made at the weekend. There seems to be a bit of a colour theme going on!
 This first one features some funky fairies papers, a Marianne poinsettia die and a Martha Stewart punch. What, no stamps?! Well, I'm trying to keep them simple!
 The next two are more using the tipsy trees (woodware) and papers from my Funky hand Dreams Come True cd.
Finally this one uses a Digi image from Digistamp boutique, coloured with promarkers. The paper was a funky fairy one and the paper used for the border is a rich burgundy colour - not dark brown as it looks on the photo!
I'm off to have a nice cuppa and try to tidy my craft table a bit. Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally
I'm so sorry, as usual these days I've missed a few posts so will try to catch up. Your Chrissy cards are gorgeous. I have to say I recognise one of them and it's not wonky and totally gorgeous in real life. I love the colours and that woodware holly stamp. Thats a definite to add to my collection for next year.
I can't believe you've only just broken up. You'll be ready for a rest. Ours finished last Friday so we've been busy having a lovely time. I love the Christmas holidays, so much anticipation in the air.
Well done on still making cards. I'm all crafted out at the minute. I think my mojo is waiting for Christmas too.
Like Jules, thanks so much for the song. What great words. It made me smile too.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and Santa brings you lots of nice things and heres to a Peaceful and Healthy New Year.
Hugs Lisax

Wow Sally, I can't believe how far behind I am again. I wouldn't mind so much if it meant I was more organised on the home front ............ but I'm most definitely not! I most certainly need to buck my ideas up in the New Year.

Lots of beautiful cards you've been making and I love the tipsy tree too.

Thankyou for sending me that song. Like the others it did make me smile especially as it came through when we were getting another load of snow!

Have a lovely Christmas and here's wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year. See you in 2011!
