Christmas cards III - Recycling and Snippets again!

Hello Again!!

Has anyone had enough of Christmas yet?  No - me neither!! 

It is customary where I work that we have a "Girlies Chippey Do", however, as it fell to me to organise I mooted to have a Hope Lunch instead (aka Potluck Lunch or American Supper).  Most liked the idea and only two really complained that they wanted chips so we went ahead and held it today.  Apart from the fact that we couldn't have Christmas music it went down a storm.  A new tradition has been born!  Yeay!!

Right, onto the main reason we are here.....yet more Christmas cards with a mixture of Recycling, Snippets and VOS!

Can you guess I just love this MB tree?  And that bow with the star is divine, specially as they come in two sizes on the die and you can cut the stars off and use them solo!  A Twofa!!   I added some liquid pearls to the centres of the flowers - note to self - use liquid pearls more often.  A lovely Spellbinders border running down the side and some narrow spotty ribbon.

Next one is some snippets left over from my Christmas Album, recycled chipboard covered, die cut and then stamped before adding a piece of very narrow tinsel to my deer  More liquid pearls and my SU tag and stamp with sentiment by Hero Arts. Again, my MB die is out.  There is a carrot behind that star which is why the deer is trying to get it!!

Another one of my envelopes from a previous Christmas Album which has been sitting in the box.  I just replaced the sentiment and added a MB star.  Do you get the impression I like the MB star and bow die at all?

And lastly a 4x6 with a piece of cardstock left from my Christmas Album, TH lamppost with some light which has been stickled with Distress Schtickles.  The caroller is a die which my Buddy brought up and I added a teensy winsy holly decoration to her hat.  I think she likes it!  The music is one I had which I scanned and shrunk and printed.  

Right, that is all from me tonight.  Thanks for calling by.  Have you written your List for Santa and sent it yet?  I have asked for a visit from Santa's Elves to come and visit MY workshop and stock it up with all the papers, dies and stamps I NEED.  An IOU til after Christmas will be perfectly acceptable!  Gotta dream!

Off to the Snippets Playground as there is a megaplethora of Snippets used here.  I think they breed in their box when I turn the light out as the pile never goes down!!

They are all wonderful but the last one calls out to me...probably because DH left me some money for anything that caught my eye for my stocking gifts. He was in Vegas so couldn't shop with us.
I bought that die but had to hand it over to him when I got surprises from him this year but that is OK...would rather not have dulplicates of things.
My girls will surprise me!

Anywayd, I think that is why yours cals out to yours is a fabulous card! The deer one is a sweetie...and the lamp post card is fab.

You have showcased some great dies here...and they all look great!
