Chilly Monday

It would seem that Winter has arrived!  Various parts of the UK have lots of snow, but fortunately here there's only a dusting of the horrible stuff - but even so, I'll feel a lot happier when Himself is home from work this evening.
There was a bit of snow around at the w/e and I very nearly chickened out of going to the craft fair at Wrest Park but I'm glad we decided to go as there were some lovely things to see.  Mind you, mostly I saw things I wanted for myself rather than to give for presents, but I was good and kept top the job in hand with a few gift purchases made and ticked off the list.  I did however collect lots of leaflets and cards for future reference!
Yesterday I made the gift "voucher" for MIL's birthday pressie and we packed up that, her card and the exploding box I've made for her ready to post today.  I'll put the box on here in a day or two.
I also made these Christmas cards

Materials:
Websters 6x6 collection packs, Bazzill card, 
Dies (Cuttlebug, Spellbinders) 
ribbon and twine from stash
Woodware Tiny Stars punch (cuts 6 stars at a time)

I quite like the way most of these turned out, which makes a change! 
I've just realised that I've not shared the cards made with the latest set of Crafty Templates on here yet so I'll do that tomorrow.
Just a quick reminder that there's not long left to enter the  latest Funky Hand Challenge, see HERE - there's a £20 spend in the shop up for grabs.  You need to use at least one FH product, but if you don't have any yet, then visit the downloads section of the SHOP to find a Freebie for immediate download.
I'm off now to try and get my "Tis the Season" journal up to date.  Thanks for visiting, please come back soon
