Christmas again

Good morning crafty friends. A quick post today. I won't be boring you with my version of "the everyday story of country folk!" today. Phew, I can hear the sighs of relief all the way to Oxfordshire!

I thought I would pop another Christmas card on the blog today then leave Christmas alone for a while. This one is a very simple one (just like me, lol!) so very quick to make, which is just what is needed when there are a lot to make. And I make a lot, believe me!

This is a Mo Manning image, Little Elf Kin, and was very easy to colour - just red, and green basically. Oh and the skin of course. I added glitter to his his hat and vest and that's it. Simple as that. The pretty red organza ribbon, from my stash, has a picot edge which mimics the Spellbinders lacy squares frame. I used Cuttlebug Swiss dots for the background and then added the Marianne snowflakes which I diecut from glitter paper which in fact is not particularly glittery so I won't be using that again!  A red gem stone finished them off. I still find Swiss dots is one of my favourites, even though I've had it forever, or so it seems.

Well that's it for today. I hope youall have a great day whatever you are doing.

With love from Christine. xx


  1. Another lovely card Christine, gosh I must make a start on mine, I've been reorganising my ribbon and haven't done any crafting whatsoever, naughty me.

    The swiss dots folder is everyone's fave I think because it's so versatile.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Hi Christine,
    I wonder if you are visiting my blog while I'm visiting yours today. Great minds and all that. I cracked it today the blog went out on it's own. LOL. Now to your card it's really lovely. I love everything you have used. Especially the snowflake die. Must try and buy shortly, as I only have the snowflake punch. Have a great crafty day everyone.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. This is so cute Christine. I adore red and white for christmas (even though I am a fan of traditional I am not a fan of tradition red, green and gold). The dots are fabulous as they give the effect of snow falling with the snowflakes emphasising this too.
