Christmas !!!!

My latest cards were made using our new Christmas stamp plates, designed by Sam Poole.It was hard to get in the Christmas spirit as I'm in summer holiday mode.I started these cards straight after finishing the steam punk ones,so I used the same colour distress inks Frayed Burlap (liking this colour) and Weathered Wood.A bit different for Christmas but they seem to work,love experimenting.

What do you think ?

Well the packing is done,just need to decide what to take in the crafty line.I need something to do while my husband's fishing. I have knitting,cross-stitching,a good book what else .......
I shall not be crafting all holiday even though I'd like too, we plan to visit some new and old places to us.Shopping maybe, eating and drinking definitely.

I'll try and post through the week from our holiday destination,Oh by the way guess what we are stopping in, it's not a caravan, a cottage,or a boat....

Steampunk Thursday

Just a quick post to show a couple of samples I've made for the show on C&C tomorrow.

These stamps are great for men's cards,but look out for a couple of cards for the ladies on the show.
I like to have a go at the artsy style but also like to show stamps like these can make "normal" cards.
Just a few more layers to do on the last card then I can hand them over to Sam Poole for the show.
Don't know what's next but I'm on holiday next week,which I'm really looking forward too.Let you know where I'm going in a later post.
