Christmas Card Ideas PLUS a little Candy

It's almost Christmas, did you know that? LOL I sure hope you are not stressed out by the merry season, and have everything under control. Cards written? Presents wrapped? House cleaned and decorated to the nines? Food in? No?? Oh well, you still have a few days :-)))

If you are still making the cards, here are some ideas. These are my Christmas cards this year, and yes, I too left it to the last minute. Next year I have promised myself I will start making them in July! LOL. These are not great pictures as I had to get them written and sent, just snaps on the window sill, so I apologise in advance for the picture quality:

When I have a little more time I will come back and list products used in more detail, but here is a rough summary:

The girl on several of the cards is from our Download collection "Let it Shine". Her boots and hat are covered in Polar White. I coloured her in the same colours on each image, using Copic marker pens.
Paper and Embellishments used are from: Bo Bunny Blitzen - Fancy Pants - Melissa Frances - Graphic 45
Prima Marketing Christmas Flowers
Stickles
Liquid Pearls
Pearls
K&Co Christmas
Distress Inks
Spellbinders


Everything is available from Charmed Cards & Crafts.

Right! As promised here is a little candy. What better than some delicious Tim Holtz stamps! This set comprises five rubber stamps and RRP's at £19.95:
