Christmas Cuties

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? It is always a tough week when we go back to school. It is so easy to slip into the stay at home lifestyle.

Last week I made a few Christmas cards. Surprisingly, this year where I am so busy I have managed to make more Christmas cards than I had at this point last year.

I was looking through my collection of old cards (people love giving them to me 😊) and I found two cards that had obviously come from the same set. The little images were so cute I had to use them.

The original card were just these images in the centre of a white card which made them super easy to cut out. 

There is not a lot to say I used the Double Pierced Squares and Rectangles dies to make all the mats and layers. The papers were in my stash. 

I would like to enter the April Rudolf Days Challenge

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

 Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
