Thank you all so much............

First of all, thank you all so much for the lovely stream of get well messages I have had from so many blog friends, they really lifted me up. I am feeling better now, not much better, just let's settle for better....... still lots of ouchies around, but I am taking it easy.
Here are some cards I mailed off to Polkadoodles earlier in the week, for a TV show launching the new Christmas CD called Jingle Jangle Christmas, it's full of such great images, papers, and loads of projects as well, like an advent calender, gingerbread house, recipe cards. The launch is on Create and Craft TV at 9.00 a.m on monday be sure to watch, to see loads of great ideas
The first card is made with paper I printed from the CD, the colour collections are gorgeous, and include a fabulous taupe colour which would go down really well with my trendy London-living offspring, but I love this icy blue colour, the alphas are already to go as well, and I printed out the polar bears then cut around them and stuck them on with pop dots. The snow banks were hand cut randomly from white card and inked in blue

This next one is a double pocket card, which used papers and alphas from the CD...

The funky recipe cards come already printed, or there are blank ones on there to write your own. I tied them all together with a blank key ring

The little lollipops are another page on the CD, as is the beribboned tag, which reads "delicious recipes". I cut the lollies out and covered them with diamond glaze to make them glossy. I thought I would print some of these recipes out and put them in a decorated tin to give as a gift to some of my girlfriends

Scroll down to labels on the sidebar if you want to know how to make a double pocket card, I posted a tutorial a while back. If you like funky, trendy Christmas cards, the CD is available on pre-order now
