Christmas card Marathon Part II



Hello There Folks

As it is 12th night tonight and so technically Christmas I thought I would share with you some more of the marathon cards that I shared with you just before Christmas.

Firstly a box which I made to put a pressie in for my friend....



This card was one of my favourites and was sent to a special friend of mine..



I couldn't resist including this one. The metal embellishment is a VOS!...bought when my friend's lickle boy was still in a pram and he turned 19 last month so VERY old stuff!



And of course I had to include a chicken card...



And last but not least the card I made for my Hubby!  Yes it is a recycled card but it has Boofles on who I glammed up with schtickles before 3d mounting onto a background from packaging of K&Co embellishments and snowflakes cut from Snippets and Spellbinders dies.  I cannot resist Boofle.



Thanks for popping in to see me. Don't forget all your Christmas decs should be away by morning or you will have to keep them up all year!  No doubt I will find something tomorrow!

As these are all made from Snippets or recycling I am taking them over the Snippets Playground!  Let's hope the moat hasn't turned into a river and that no more fencing is down.  It was murder gathering up the ducks and geese who had escaped and we are still looking for the goat!

Wow! You did have a marathon! An d a fun way to make them...nothing like crafting with friends.

I have some of those metal embellies too...I had forgotten about them.

Looks like you and I are still on our VOS and NBUS trend! I am really enjoying it and by the looks of your fabulous cards, so are you!

My favourite is the same as yours...that card is a delight! Bet your husband loved his boofle too!

What a lovely selection of cards. I am aiming to start my cards for this year in February. This month is mine, just to play with all the ideas flying round in my head. I need to get back to blogging properly, not just once in a flood. I also need to find a way to stop Gemma stealing anything that is not nailed down. Fortunately, she can no longer rush down the garden and hide it as there is a fence across the patio to stop her. Thank you for your visit and have a good week. xx Maggie

You had a lovely selection to share. I think my fav pick would be the poinsettia. Loved all of 'em though. The Boofles looked so touchable. Hope you find the goat. I bet it's cold out there putting up fencing. We'll have to have a BBQ to thank all the Elves who have worked so hard to repair the damage at our fun place. Thank you. TFS too, Happy New Year, and Hugs. Stay warm

I too have some of those VOS metal tags...too nice to use you see...as for the decorations, mine are down, the house feels enormous and yip, the tablecloth got left out...always something to find once I have put all the boxes back in the roof!

Just found one of those green plastic hooks you hang the baubles up on the tree with. It was hiding on the floor but that doesn't count does it?!! Love the chookie card. Hugs Mrs A.
