a few crimbo cards

Helllllooooooo!!!!! Gosh what a week, so sorry for being such a bad blogger but I've had three of my children off school this week with that awful sickness bug.....yyyyyuck!!! So what with looking after them and all the extra washing I've had to deal with, this week has flown by. Luckily they are all better now and have gone back to school today and since it's my day off work, I thought I make a couple of cards, Christmas is fast approaching and I'm so behind with everything again this year so here's a few for starters.

A couple of simple embossed cards using the Cuttlebug Winter House embossing folder.


This card is for our eldest son, Tom, many thanks to Sue for the snowflake embellie and this lovely image, he kind of reminds me of Tom, perhaps it's the cheeky grin on his face...lol!!! I've coloured the image with a mix of distress inks and water coloured pencils and then embossed the image with clear embossing powder and a touch of holographic embossing powder for a bit of twinkle. The pp are Anita's, Cuttlebug embossing folder and lil distressing to the paper edges.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend whatever you've got planned, take care, hugs xx vicki xx
