Christmas Production Line

Have you started making your Christmas cards yet ?
Head over to the  ABC Christmas challenge,
where their theme is 'Quick and Easy'.
They have a great sketch for you to follow
and the extra challenge is to make more than 1 card.
A great way to start your Christmas card pile, or  add to it.

Some Christmas cards just lend themselves to having a little production line going.
I get everything cut out, coloured and ready to go,
and then it's just a  matter of assembly, when I have some spare time.

 I got to ink up my new Catslife Press stamp for this card.
I  love the cheeky  'Fa la la la la ' saying.
They do other cute text stamps too and
Crafty Emma's Store has a good selection.
You have to be quick though, as they go like hot cakes!!
Emma is expecting more stock next week,
so keep checking her store, if you want to get your hands on some.

I coloured my Forever Friends stamp with Copics and added some glitter.
Now I realise I NEED a real life sparkly dressing gown, just like this one!!!
I'm sorry, I can't remember what the DP is -
it's from last year and has long since lost it's cover!

I love this paper! Too bad you can't remember whose it is. But great and easy way to use up your old stash and scraps when you use different paper for each card. Very nice.
