Helllooooo! Remember me? Sorry I have been rather absent over the last well errrr lots of months really. Working in my new job has been rather time consuming so not much has been getting done with the crafting situation. I have tried every week to get into some kind of routine but other things just take priority with home life. Kids have been on their summer break too which can be hard work. Those with teenagers will understand.
Any how over the last couple of weeks I have made a start on some Christmas cards, woooooppppeeeee!
So I will show them both to you (I haven't just made two but a few of each). When you see them you will see they are time consuming.
First of all, let me appologise for the light, Mr. Sun decided to pop behind a cloud as I took the photo's. Here is Mr. Santa with attitude (Magnolia), love him don't you? I have used copics (21 in fact) to colour him in. Cardstock is all SU. Sentiment is from Lily of the Valley. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Not sure if I have attached those quite right as they are new to me but I used silicone glue. If your an expert and reading please let me know how do you attach yours?
This one has yet to be finished, needs some bling on there. But its in progress and inserts all need to be done and popped in. Just loving Santa this year. Again all cardstock and papers are Stampin' Up!
Right better go and do some more colouring, done my back in yesterday so have no choice but to rest, what a shame!

Wow, beautiful cards Melanie! I love the Santa images, I may just have to get him!

What are the scrolls behind the sentiments?

Really, really beautiful, your family will love them.
