I know that I am now talking to myself as you have all fainted on the floor, but I'll carry on anyway!
I have used a 4'' x 4'' piece of mountboard, covered it in a piece of HOTP Christmas paper and inked the edges with a Cats Eye Maroon coloured chalk ink pad. The vintage Father Christmas picture has been layered and and added to the square with a piece of ribbon and a 'Joyful Memories' bookplate secured with brads.
Ho, Ho, Ho.....

I love this House Mouse stamp !
I made several of these cards for my BIL, who is serving in the Middle East, to send home as he'll be out there for Christmas.
They are a simple design as I wanted to keep them flat.I used red leather effect cardstock for the main card and gold mirri card as the base gold layer to add depth to the cards. Then added red liquid pearls to bring out the berries of the punched holly corners.
This is the other type I sent out.
A wide band of ribbon with another little mouse layered on top. The white of his hat is again liquid pearls and 'Merry Christmas' peel offs to finish.

I have used different glazes on the poppies but they are not easy to see on the scanned image.

Two boys birthdays this week...my cousins little boy was 2 yesterday and the son of a forum friend will be 10 on Wednesday
I used the mini 'Boys' collection from Tanda Stamps to stamp images onto plain white cardstock...then used alcohol inks on acetate, and placed over the top secured with brads. Two pieces of co ordinating ribbon tied on the spine with a shrink plastic trike and tags finished it off.
This image was stamped using a blue Brilliance inkpad...chalk inkpad smudged on the edges and mounted onto silver lined holographic card...the simple but effective look!
Happy Birthday Boys!
