Snippet christmas cards

 I was having a rummage through my 12x12 sheets when out fell a plastic pocket full of Christmas snippets that I had forgotten about! I think I printed some of these from a Joanna Sheen Victorian Christmas cd and others from an Artylicious cd at least 3 years ago! there were just snippets left, so I set too making a few more christmas cards.
 The robin on this one is from Nicecrane Designs. I love the subtle pastel colours.
This last one is another using the Joanna Sheen cd  snippets. Right! I am off to the playground with these to escape from the mess for a bit. our living room looks like we have been burgled by fairies - a complete mess with a faint dusting of glitter! I hope Miss Di hasn't confiscated the eggnog as I am in need of a strong one! One more week to go at work and I will be sharing our class Christmas cards very soon, as you will love them! Fake snow made with PVA, shaving foam and glitter!!! Sounds messy, eh? Wait till you see them!
Thanks for looking!

Morning Sally . . . absolutely love all three of your snippets cards, with (possibly) the first one being my fave - so difficult to choose between them though.

S'ok . . . Miss Di hasn't yet found our hidey hole for the SPARE eggnog! I'll tell you where it is, then you can help yourself! Shhhh!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Beautiful cards Sally, I especially love both of the Robin cards. I have an A5 plastic box full of toppers that I've not got around to using.

My favourite is that robin - the way you managed to highlight the pastel background of the image panel with your papers is jut super. Who'd have thought these came from snippets. That Santa looks lovely & vintage with the browns.
Take care with all that glitter…… might need some tidying elves to help by the sounds of it.

Gorgeous cards Sally - I do love vintage cards. And such a great find amongst all your stash!

Ahem I KNOW where the egg nog is hidden - Nuffin' much gets past me :)

Shaving foam, PVA and glitter - sounds like fun!

Hugs, Di xx

Mmm, yummy, thanks for sharing your cough candy . . . crunch, crunch, crunch.

Darn it . . . luckily, even though Miss Di has discovered our secret hidey hole, she's hasn't confiscated it! Phew! xxx
