Christmas: One last yeti

In the week before Christmas I was laid low with the horrible cold-flu thing that seems to have been doing the rounds recently; I rallied enough to enjoy Christmas dinner with the neighbours (just as well I didn’t have to cook that day), but I am still not one hundred per cent over it… All… Continue reading Christmas: One last yeti

Christmas: Candles over snow flurry

I had intended to make more cards with this set, but I ended up not needing to.

Christmas: Snowflakes and tag

In an attempt (surprisingly successful this year) to avoid panic-making cards just before Christmas, I usually create a couple of small batches of cards; this was my first for this year. I keep the batches small and swap out the colours so that none of the cards created are identical. How: I cut some white… Continue reading Christmas: Snowflakes and tag
