Production Line

Here's some more 'production line' Christmas cards done with the adorable little angel by Lili of the Valley. She just needs a bit of grey shadowing on her robe, and touches of green and red on her holly wreath. The pointed labels are by Go Kreate and the sentiment buttons are from Craftwork Cards

A friend gave me a sheet of this paper, it's an old one by Daisy D, so I don't know if it's still available, but I really like the nostalgic looking little angel girls on it


I thought straight away of a snow globe, so I cut one out from Joys of the Season and popped the cut out image on that. I covered the 'globe' with glossy accents. The border punch is by E K Success, and the button is an antique - I was given a sheet of them, aren't they lovely?


Today is the last day to throw your name into the hat for tomorrow's Promarker draw. Leave a comment on every post made this past week for multiple chances of winning
I will be on my way home, no doubt, as you read this, sad in one way to leave the wonderfully hospitable United States and all our friends here, but feeling quite excited at the thought of seeing my little grandchildren again.
I'll be drawing the Promarker winners tomorrow, and will be back to announce the winners on Tuesday morning

Hi Enfys wow your busy getting your Xmas cards done they are gorgeous, love the images and the papers. With love and hugs Shirleyxxx

LorraineB said...

I think the snowglobe is very pretty. Very nostalgic with the print you used. You probably won't see your "comments" until you are back in the UK. Hope your trip back was a good one and I'm sure you're glad it's over. Now all you have to do is unpack and pick the Promarker winner and you can relax (yeah, sure you can!).
