Well i've made a good start.

Well as the title suggests i have made a start on my christmas cards. I had made some boo bears up already and after buying the winter set in which you get a die that cuts out the hat and scarf, i cut some out and attached them to some of the bears . I think they look really cute and quite christmassy too.

Here is a close up of the cards, i also used the embossing folder to make the word joy. I also swiss dotted a background for the card.
This card was made after i had some inspiration from Dawn Mcveys blog on how to make these flowers, i just changed the colours to resemble a pointsettia. I have also made similiar cards with other colour flowers.

This card is my take on a design in a mag called creativity life, i think. I used my christmas papers that are left over from last year, and used a stamp from my stash. I like this card and think i may make a few more, as i do like to make a few of the same card.
I am enjoying making cards at the moment, especially christmas ones, as there is no pressure to get them finished yet, so i am going to try to make a few a day.
Also to use up my christmas stash left over from last year, as i have been looking at the new releases for this year and i need to make space for some new christmas stash.
I am also thinking about making a travel journal, i have seen a few on blogs and i love ali e's style, so i may be able to do this, this year. I need to get a move on with it as we go on holiday on the 1st August.
Well i am off to make more cards and bash around a few ideas for a travel album.
