I've been thinking the reason I'm not feeling so creative at the mo is because I need to be making Christmas cards and I don't really feel like it. Anyway I've persevered and here are the results. I quite like how bright and non traditional they are. The stamps are by The Angel Company and the papers are Zoe Pearn from the Sweet Shoppe. Coloured with Whispers Brush Markers.
This next card is growing on me. The stamp is by Wendy Rhodes and it's quite big so this card is 17 x 12.5 not a size I use often. I've used Sissix texture plates to do the embossing and then sanded them back. I've also added quite a bit of sparkle which you can see better in the close up piccy. The sketch is from A Spoon Full of Sugar.
Hi Julie your cards are `gorgeous` I definatly find it hard to create Christmas cards now!!!Im always last minute with them...TFS

Julie I have missed seeing your cards this week! You have the most beautiful cards! I love the snowman card so much. I hope you don't mind but I would love to use those colours you used on a card! You so know how to inspire someone!

Oh i'm with you Julie, i find Christmas cards a bit of a chore really...have to say these are both gorgeous ! x
Lovely to see your new cards Julie, always so inspiring! Especially love the tree - this is so pretty!! Juliex
Gorgeous cards Julie, love the cute snowman and the colour combo is fab on the tree card x
LOL, I don't feel like making anything "other" than Christmas cards! ;) Oh these are cute Julie, I have these cute snowmen too, I've never seen them look so good! Fab colors and design...and as always love your coloring! The tree card is pretty too, reminds me of a Dr. Suess tree. :)
Fabulous cards Julie and the colours are amazing! I know what you mean about the Christmas cards hun, it's my fave time of year but I don't love making the cards..... have got into my stride though now and I'm sure you will too!

Oooo I love these Julie. The orange on the snowman cards goes perfectly with his carrot nose. Orange and Green should become the new 'official' Christmas colours. They look great.
Your second card is fabby too. Delish wobbly tree. Loving all the sparkle!

Gorgeous cards Julie.I must admit I'm not in the mood for Christmas cards.
Fabulous card Julie, love the non-traditional look and that funky tree is adorable.

Love the cards Julie. The Christmas tree is very unusual. I'm trying hard to get my Christmas cards done, I usually end up in a panic finishing some off on Christmas Eve (very stressful).x
So glad I followed Silke's blog to yours...what fun cards! I'm a bit burnt out on Christmas cards too (sad, really) so these snowman cards are perfect with their colors and great layout. :)
