cards for sisters

Hellooo! Only 5 more sleeps till Christmas. Hope your christmas prep is all coming along nicely.

Just 2 cards to show you today. This one is christmas card for my big sis which I can show you now, as I know it's arrived in sunny Florida. These are High Hopes stamps and I just love the humour in them. I've created a little scene/step card with this and have glittered/glossy accented the palm tree in the back :). Here's another shot of it so you can see how the card folds.

Water was just patterned paper ripped to create waves and Santa has 'white fluffy stuff' in his hat trim and stickles in his beard. The 'ho, ho, ho' are cut from a Sizzix die.

Then this next card is a new home card I made for my other Sis who's just bought a house round the corner from me (I already have 1 sister living across the road so I'll be surrounded by them come summer :)). This is a pretty simple card as I was short on time when I made it! The sweet image is a Stampavie stamp and was coloured with Sakura stardust pens so it's super sparkly IRL

Not going to bother with stash list as it's all the usual suspects. Well that's all I have until mid week probably. Hope you're all wrapping up warm and enjoying the snow . . not a drop of it here in the north west :( so not fair!
