Baby,It's Cold Outside!!!

Can you see where I'm going with my blog title's,they're all Christmas song's,don't know how long I can carry it on for ! It really is cold in the U.K.at the moment,it looks so pretty though. This is the view from my bedroom window,it looks like a scene from Narnia.

It was our Christmas crop on Saturday and we all had a great time,we all had a cracker and prezzie on our table.We had turkey rolls for lunch,I supplied the Christmas tunes and Libby did a 12 Days of Christmas Just for Fun Challenge. There was a lot of laughter and Christmas cheer in the room!!! In the afternoon I did a festive class where I did a Christmas card and a tree decoration.

On a Fridays,Sue does something called Fridays Picks and she lists her favourite blogs,challenges etc. that she's seen through the week. Last week there was a link for an Oragami Christmas Tree which gave me the idea for this card. I didn't follow it exactly,I sort of made my own by using 5 different sized scalloped square Nesties and I didn't do all the folds but I'm quite pleased how it turned out.I added a bit of Christmas sparkle with glitter around the bottom of each segment and then a star to the top.

You could use the next project as a Christmas tree decoration,a tag or attach it to a card (which I will do for my nieces and nephews cards). I just used the largest square scalloped Nestie punched out the heart shape with the SU extra large heart punch and filled a heart shape Treat Cup with sweets,adhere another scalloped square to the back,covering up the Treat Cup. Everything I used for these two projects are Stampin'Up except the dotty embossing folder which is Cuttlebug.

I had a little production line going at the crop and got 20 of these little cards done.I stamped the base card with a SU Merry Christmas sentiment,cut out the shaped Nestie label,punched out the holly shape with a Martha Stewart punch and then attached gold glitter paper behind the holly shape using 3d foam,glued that to the base card and attached a bow,and there you have a quick and simple card for when you have to make so many.
I'd like to thank Sue and Lisa for kindly awarding me this lovely blog award,I'm a bit short on time at the moment but will try and answer questions and pass it on when I have a bit more time.Thanks again,ladies!!!

Have a good day,everyone.
Back Soon!

Deb you've been busy and all these projects are gorgeous. Your origami tree is perfect and your treat project is a great idea for children. I would never come up with an idea like this and I am always impressed if someone does. And this one is lovely; they will be thrilled! The last one...awww I love the CAS but also elegant and chic look of this card; my favorite of these three.....

Lisa said...

What gorgeous Narnia photos. I must try and get out and about in daylight next time we get some snow - great (and BTW I haven't forgotten about those blog posts I talked about - working on them!).

Gorgeous cards as always and your production line one is simply divine - who wouldn't be thrilled to bits getting one of those in the post! Just lovely.

So jealous of the fun you had at the weekend at the crop! I was thinking of you all!

And I love the idea of your song titles! Wish I had thought of that!

It does look very cold where you live! It's pretty cold here in Michigan, too. Love your oragami Christmas tree and other projects! Thanks so much for the mention and link back to my blog - much appreciated! And don't worry about passing on the award - just enjoy it for yourself, that's fine with me!
