Minimalist Minis

I'm not sure why this week has been less than productive, but it has.  That said, I've done a few of the last odds and ends of shopping, wrapped a few presents and even written a batch of cards (why is that bit so tedious?)  I've also made a lot of soup!  It must be the weather that's bringing on this desire to make soup and dinners with chilli in them.  We're luckier than most of the country too, hardly any snow and not as cold as so many of you.  That of course doesn't stop me moaning about being cold.  Thank goodness my aunt and uncle left one of their wheat bags here last winter and donated it to us - however did we cope without it?
I've not so much as stuck two pieces of paper together for the last few days, but I do have some  examples of some cards I made last weekend I can share.  

 I used:
Websters Pages 6x6 collections, Cuttlebug minis die, scraps of white, silver and gold card, gold thread, silver braid, Stickles, decal stickers sentiments (home made)
For these two I used:
Websters Pages 6x6 collections, Cuttlebug Trees die, Tiny punched stars braid, Satin ribbon (John Lewis), Organza ribbon (stash), 
decal sticker sentiments (home made)
Today I'm supposed to be catching up with my crafting so I'm going to get off here and get on with it or I won't have anything for the DCM tomorrow, and that's just for starters.  Apologies for not visiting your blogs these last few days, I'm still not sure what happened to this week!
Thanks for visiting,

Love the minis, I could well be heading in that direction soon having discovered I am short of thin, postable cards by about 20!
