Hi on this hot sunny evening, I have been very warm this afternoon trying to give my kitchen a clean. Everything takes me twice as long these days, after about 15 mins of working I have to have at least 15mins sat down to recover. Then start all over again, still the jobs get done eventually.
I'm all Christmassy again tonight,  I made a wreath of Holly leaves for the first card. It uses just a tiny stamp of two leaves. I stamped it  once then turned it round the opposite way and stamped again. I then just continued around in a circle. for the background I just stamped the berries. I embossed the Holly leaves and added glitter to the berries.

For the second card I stamped my red circle and then my sentiment. I stamped my gingerbread man in pale brown all around my circle. After it had dryed I overstamped using a darker brown pigment ink and embossed them. The background uses two tiny snowflake stamps from the same set of Inky Doodle stamps.
Thats two more for my box, I'm determined that I will get all my Christmas cards done early this year.
Off to look at some other blogs to see what other people have been doing. Then I going to put my feet up and have an ice cream.
Hope you are all doing something nice. Thanks for popping by. Hugs x ChrisB


  1. Two great cards with the circular stamping - particularly like the gingerbread men. Take care in the heat - it seems to wipe me out too.

  2. Great cards Chris. Love your holly wreath especially. I'm sure your kitchen isn't so bad you couldn't leave it till we get some cooler weather. I want to get the steam cleaner round mine but the thought of increasing the temperature is putting me off.
