Final Christmas cards

Hello - I hope you all had a great Christmas.  Are you all out for New Years parties or are you stopping in like me?  Well I thought I wouold post a couple of piccies of the Xmas cards I made for my mum and dad and the one I made for my husband.  Also there's one of Steve's birthday card too as it is on the 23rd of December - My dad's b'day was on Christmas eve but I forgot to take photos of the cards I made for him so will have to do that when I am next visiting.
So, here are the Christmas cards;

This is Steve's Christmas card - a house mouse stamp from Joanna Sheen and papers and hearts printed and cut on my Cricut.  The ribbon is an East of India ribbon from Polka Doodles - they are just yummy.

 This card was my folks Xmas card.  Another House mouse image with flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts .  The sentiment is a Whimsy sentiment.  I was quite pleased with this card and my mum loved it.

 This card was Steve's birthday card.  Yet another House Mouse image.  Thsi one is called 'Dip' and I think it has to be my favourite.  The papers are from a Nit Wit collection which I have distress inked around the edges and stitched too.  The buttons are from Bo Bunny.  I finished it off with a faux ribbon and some string.  I thought this card was cute but I didn't want it to be too girly.  Steve liked it so I think I got it right for him ;o)
Well I hope you like these cards.  What has everyone got planned for the New Year?  Anything exciting?  As I mentioned I have something in the pipeline and I shall reveal all as soon as I can.
Take care all

  2. Hi Sam, wow I just love these cards. The house mouse stamps are really adorable although I must say I don't own even one!! We are staying in for New Years Eve and having our best friends over. We have been celebrating this way for years now, and each year it's someone elses turn to host, so this year we're on. So we're 13 people all together, and everbody makes something to eat which means we almost always have way too much LOL!! Anyway, I wish you all the best for the New Year, love, happiness and most of all good health. Big XXX Frea
