It's the craftiest time of the year :)

(Update: Welcome visitors from soapHousemama's LLL! This post shows pictures of my Christmas Cards this year. I was just soooo happy with them I just had to link up :)

Well, I'm getting worse at the old blogging, but it means that I am doing some actual crafting, rather than sitting down at the pc, so I suppose that's good! I've been quiet also as I've been unwell, and so have the kids. Nothing stops normal life in it's tracks quite so effectively as a tummy bug in a house full of children. But everyone is mostly recovered, so things are beginning to get back to normal. Except of course that Christmas has gone and crept up on us...

So, I've been frantically trying to finish up my Christmas cards. I had made up a batch of cards a few weeks ago, but I gave them to my Dad to sell in his shop (I'm not going to retire on the proceeds!) They were of a more traditional style. But I've been looking around Etsy a lot lately and it really inspired me to try something a little different. And so, with the help of a funky online app called 'scribbler' (you can google that and it'll bring you there) I created these cards below. I don't know if anyone who receives them will like them at all, but I do, so hopefully that counts for something!

(And apologies for the preview to those of you who read my blog and who will be receiving one of these cards in the post really soon.)



(Less embarrassed) Elf!

 Virgin and Child


There we go, they'll be put in the post in the next day or so (hopefully!) And I'm hoping I'll have some time over the holidays to update the blog with all that I've been doing.

Happy Christmas!


  1. They look lovely. Something different. I think they're wonderful.

  2. Thanks Orlaith :) :) One will be winging it's way to u (tomorrow hopefully :)

  3. The cards are fab! very classey and I loved mine :-) xx Thanks hun xx Glad to hear you are all on the ment just in time for Santa coming :-) 4 more days xxx

  4. Me again just looked up the scribbler and its a draw thing is that right? Did you draw these yourself!? How clever are you!

  5. Heya Sam :)

    Thanks so much fr your card - it is a work of art :) I even dragged hubby over to show it to him I was so impressed :)

    You should give scribbler a go - the beauty of it is u don't need to have any artistic talent to be able to create cool images. While I do have some artistic talent, sadly not enough to produce the pictures without its help!

    Have a lovely Christmas (and I promise!!! to reply to email soon. I'm a total disaster. )

  6. These are so fantastic!!! I love the clean modern lines and the touch of whimsy. Thanks for linking up with purple mailbox :)

  7. Cool cards! Hope you had a nice Christmas and Best wishes for New Year!

  8. I especially like your elf cards!

  9. Ashli, delighted you like them :) I'm looking forward to doing a few more cards in a similar style...cupid for Valentines, Easter Bunny...

    Thanks Svjetlana :) Busy Christmas and New Years, but lots of fun - hope you had a good festive season too - with lots of crafting!

    Maura, thanks :) I think they're my favourite too :)
