And last but not least....my Christmas Cards

Can you see a theme running through my Christmas Cards this year??? My new Cuttlebug Snowflake!!! I wanted one of these last year! But finally went ahead and bought myself one a month or so ago and I have to say its been really well worth the money! Here I've created some really simple cards using the snowflake, my cuttlebug embossing folder and some coloured card. The concept of this card came to me in a dream! So as soon as I got up I had to make it before I forgot about it. How sad is that? dreaming about making Christmas cards. It just goes to show how much I've bee doing lately! This first one is my favourite! I'm loving red and white this Christmas. Followed by my second favourite, the Lilac one!
This one is in dark navy pearlescent which I think is quite striking.And a slightly paler blue pearlescent version too!
I then found some pastel green pearlescent card too in my stash, so gave that a go too!
And here is a little something I decided to have a go at for the craft fair as a stocking filler. I made the box using a very made up template! and I've just filled it with 4 tealite candles. I've used my nestabilities to cut the square in the lid and have then embossed some acetate with my snowflakes embossing folder.

My next task is to make some money walletts, so I'm off for a browse to see if I can get inspired!

Your snowflake cards are fab, I love how you've used different colours and got different feels depending on the colour used. I love the packaged tealights, what a great idea for a gift!
