Very Berry Textile ATC Swap 4

I've been taking part in Ali's textile ATC swap recently which is lots of fun. This jus the 4th swap Ali has organised and the 3rd one I have joined in with

I have heard that my recipient Sian has received her ATC that I made so now I am able to share it here. The theme was Getting Away From it All and this is the ATC that I stitched

A couple of Snipets cards

I've been using up my snippets again and these are the cards I have made

It's always very satisfying to use up leftover bits and pieces from previous projects and these cards both do that. In the first card the flowers are left over and in the second one the background and the butterflies are left overs

I'm playing along at the 
Butterfly challenge where you need to include butterflies and a sentiment and my second card does that

Pop Up Christmas Card

A couple of weeks ago I bought a collection of these cards from The Printable Craft Shop which is part of the My-Crafts site. This is an brilliant bundle and the cards are easy to make. So far I have done 2, the first one I did is this one

And this is my second one which did actually turn out better so as I will be making more i should hopefully improve the final look of my cards

Pixies Snippets Playground 139

Hi everyone, I've been making a start on my Christmas cards as you know and so I thought as I had made this one with some left over snippets from some other cards I would share it today and enter it at Pixie's playground. I made this using the leftover piece of card from cutting a Christmas tree and the wordy paper is also from my snippets box. You can join in with this weeks snippet challenge here

I'm trying to be on top of my Christmas card Making this year and so at the weekend I managed to get a few made and this one fits the theme over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge this month as it's snowflakes

The backing Papers are some i found when I was sorting out all my Christmas stash ready for this year and the image is stamped and its one I think I got free with a magazine and then I've coloured it with my promarkers

Birthday Card

I have a friends birthday coming up soon and so when I had some time in my craft room at the weekend I made this card for her. It's using an image from one of LOTV art pads. I do love these they make for some great cards this is from pad English Charm (set 24) and the sentiment is from General Sentiments (set 8 ) which is also an Art Pad

I'd like to enter this into Scribble and Scrap challenge which is Anything Goes
