Hero Arts Christmas Day 2

Hi folks...the weather's up to it's old tricks again...a weekend of torrential downpours then Mr Sunshine decided to come out to play yesterday but I've got a feeling it's going to be short-lived... temperatures are plummeting...morning frosts and already there's been a flittering of snow up on Cairngorm. Nothing else for it but to batten down the hatches...look out the winter woolies and take ourselves off to the cubbyhole for some crafting fun with Sizzix/Hero Arts Holiday Cheer Framelits and stamps...it's a hard life but someone's gotta do it...

using stamps and die cuts...

and the die cuts on their own...a great way to use up scraps of your favourite papers...

and a little tip...make sure that all your dies are accounted for when you're done...believe me it's so easy to throw away the scrap of card with the die still attached...meaning a long sifting through the bin session...been there...done it and got several T shirts to prove it.
See you all tomorrow for another Christmas offering...
Hugs Kath xxx

Gorgeous card - like these stamps and dies - I have been there done that but was too late in finding that the die was still attached with the card and it has gone out in the bucket.

Cute reindeer card, and great card from scraps too.
Soggy doggy weather is here! We had more heavy rain this morning for a bit but... fingers crossed, it's stopped for now at least. My pet hate is defrostiong the car, so rain isn't so bad, as long as it doesn't freeze!

Hi Kath, I am in total awe of your gorgeous cards today - isn't that little reindeer just the cutest thing with his jumper on! Lost dies - I lost one, bought another and then found the original, how sill is that! Crafty hugs, Anne x

Too quick to press enter - that should say silly and not sill.....

Hi Kath! I love these Sizzix dies and stamps sets and think I may have to invest in them - not only for me but for Alex to have a play with too - right up his street, esp. the snowman! Beautiful cards as always xx

Hi Kath, two lovely cards,the red on the first one looks great. I bought this one last year but didn't do much with it, I'll have a go tonight. Trish.

Now that jumper that Rudolph is wearing would look rather good on Buddy - wonder if it might fit??
Thanks for tip about dies - that's a T-shirt none of us need.......
Take care with all the weather flurries.
