Christmas is a-coming so let's Use it Up!!

Hello Friends

As my banner on the foot of my blog declares it is only 78 days to go to Christmas!!  So it is time to get a move on with my Christmas cards (it is less than 80 days away so I will now use the C word!!).

You remember the card with the Robins on I showed you last week?  These two images were on the same card!!  So that is three cards made from one card which could have quite easily ended up in the bin or at best, the recycling bin!!
These Chickens and Robins were made for me by my friend Kay.  I will have to tell her she creates cheeky birds!! At least the Robin is serving a purpose here....he is holding the edge of the card down so I could get a better picture!!  

You can see I have been playing with my new EK Success punch there.  It is mighty beautiful and it is a 2in1 punch so I can punch a double sided "ribbon" too!  And of course, I have also been playing with my new SU punch and stamps!  That will be soo handy and glad I bought it from my Buddy Sandra.  I need to source the ribbon again too as that was the last bits I had of it!!  The circles were made using my Nesties.

Well as these cards are entirely made from Snippets I shall take them to the Treehouse aka Miss Pixie's Playground.  

Thanks for popping by and please leave me a message so I know you have been.
