OK, OK, OK, I've admitted defeat.... we all knew I would.... I've started making my Christmas cards. Every year I say I'm not going to make any, cos they always turn into a chore.....but.....whilst shopping in Hobbycraft with me old muckas Kay and Michelle, I had a bit of an idea for some simple-ish cards. I mean, I know I said I wasn't making any, but I didn't mean I wasn't making ANY. Just not loads.

OK, so apollies for the rubbish photos, but here we go. Simple kraft cards, torn papers, stamped sentiment and a stamped and paper pieced focal image. Plus glitter, ribbon and the odd cherry red pearl gem. 

Success is assured! I knocked out 3 last night, I've got the kit set up next to my spot on the sofa so more can be made whilst telly watching! Hurray for Christmas cards.


  1. I know. I said the same thing this year, but still I've started making them.
    Your Christmascards are so joyful and fun to look at and I love the color combo you used!

  2. Nice idea. I'm exactly the same. I'm making some - just not a lot! But I think I'd better make a start on my family ones for New Zealand!

  3. A beautiful Christmas card. Love the image and the colour combo is gorgeous.

  4. Great cards Lisa, I'm only making for my 2 sisters and brother this year as it definitely becomes a chore when your doing loads of them.

  7. the red and white polka dots ribbon does not suits with any of these cards. better remove it.

  8. These are beautiful cards, really simple but lovely. I made all mine for the first time this year, and was surprised by how bored I was by the end! I still wanted to make cards, just nothing with Christmassy stuff on it! M x
