Christmas cards

I should have been a good blogger, but time has not been on my side, so will try and put things right this week and thereafter - hopefully.

A Xmas card was requested by a man in work, who always gets his wife's cards off me, He is very shy and I think I get him out of trouble LOL.  The Turtle Doves are a ready coloured image from Beccy HERE there is also a digital stamp in the next post, but I love this image.  The tree and ornaments and snowflakes are from Zestaw at NumbBumm.The background paper is from the kit Always and Forever by Digilicious Designs.  The font is Aphrodite Pro.  He was very pleased with this card, thankfully.

Now back to my makes for the fair, here is a fab lip balm holder I saw HERE and made a cut file of my own in Fairycuts, then cut them out on my Cricut.  The card is pink hammered and the paper is Berries by Pink Petticoat, the ribbon is from Fantastic Ribbons.  I copied the background colour to make the topper and used velcro to close it.

Awwh, adorable turtle doves hunny! That would thrill me if Toad produced that on Christmas morning. And your lip balm holder is such a pretty thing, makes a wonderful gift. If I don't get the chance nearer the time, Merry Christmas sweetie! Hugs Sxx
