First "you-know-what" cards

Bubbly Scrumptious Day for me today, and I've made a couple of quick cards this week.
With limited time this week, they needed to be quick too!

Both use the fab September "Colourful Christmas" Kit from Bubbly Funk. It's such a pretty set of papers and goodies, and what's really special about this one is that whilst some of the designs are very seasonal they also have lots of scope for non-Christmas crafting too. I've got an order for a couple of those little standing albums I've been making lately and I think these papers will be perfect for one of them - I'll let you know how I get on.

The first of my cards is so simple it almost hurts!
I've used fibres, Stickles and an eyelet from mu stash, plus a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The rest is from the kit.
Card 2 is a tad more complicated because it's got a hole in it - but that's only tricky because I didn't have the right sized punch

I thought it would be cute to have those snowpeople peeping through the window.
A fine gel pen and some Stickles are the only non-kit stuff on this one

Both would be really easy to adapt to use other bits from the kit. You can see more photos and basic "How-to's" HERE

I've also made the tags to go into the maze book I was making over the last couple of weeks and there are photos of those too. It's still not completely finished though...maybe it never will be! lol

That's all for now, I'm getting through the to-do list, but it's taking a while. DCM day tomorrow and I've not got so much of a hint of an idea yet. Got stuff to finish packing an posting (please please let the posties not go on strike till they all get there.............)

Thanks for coming by - I promise to have a catch up on what everyone is up to really really soon.
