Crafty C-Word!

Back to what passes for normal after our exciting weekend!
Here are two more cards made with this month's wonderful Crafty Templates and the fab Goodies Kit Leo put together to go with the templates.

"From Our House...." card

This is such a cute template. I couldn't resist using the gingerbread man paper from the Goodies Kit to make it from. I cut out the window shapes and used my Craft Robo to cut the wording to go behind them. I made the door open to add an extra greeting inside, and added a Christmas Wreath made with the Cuttlebug tiny motifs die.
There's lots of Sticles on the snowy bits, but it doesn't show up very well

Funky Christmas Stocking card
I love this stocking shape and I think it will come in really useful nearer You-Know-What!
I thought it would look cute hanging in an aperture, so I covered the back of the stocking with paper too.
The papers are all from the Goodies Kit, as is the button and gold ribbon. The tinselly pompom is from my own stash

Finally for today I spent some time making "Thank You" cards at the weekend, I tried to be good and stick to the same design but to make it less boring to make them I needed I did a few in each colour-way
The papers are various Black Market Paper Society collections, Flowers are my favourite Prima Artful Flowers

Just check out all that white space lol!
I'm practising for when I eventually get started on our own Christmas cards - I like to keep 'em simple and fairly easy to make loads of without losing the will to live.

Thanks for coming by today
