Serene Snowflakes

Hi everyone.  Hope you all enjoyed the extra hour in bed this morning, I know I did.  I was very warm and snuggly.  I have to say that I am not enjoying this sudden drop in temperature, and have had to crank the heating right up.
I am, however, enjoying the fact that I don't have to go to work tomorrow!  Half term has been a long time coming, the last eight weeks have seemed never ending.  Although when we go back we will be gearing up for the madness of Christmas. 
With that in mind, I have made a start on some Christmas cards.  I have lots to make, both for my personal use and for a charity event I am supporting, so I need to get busy!
My first batch were made with the sadly discontinued Serene Snowflakes stamps from Stampin' Up.  I have coveted this set for quite some time and am enjoying using them so much.
The two cards I am sharing are the same design but with different colours.  The first set of colours are Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand and Pink Pirouette, and for the second I used Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake.  I added a few crystals to give them a bit of subtle bling!
The sentment is one I've had for years from Denami.

Thanks for dropping by and I appreciate the comments you leave.  Come back tomorrow and I will share another Christmas card with you.

Take care and wrap up warm.

  1. These are stunning Michelle! I love the colour combinations you've chosen and the layout is lovely. I know just what you mean about getting into Christmas card making mode, we will be needing them before we know it! I find the challenge sites are great for setting me off and the weather is making me feel quite Christmassy too. Glad you enjoyed your extra hour in bed this morning! Vicky x
