And another two for the box....

Hello all, welcome and I hope all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving!!
Today I have a couple of quick Christmas cards to share. I am still on a mission to make most of this year's cards myself.
I decided to pull out some of my Tim Holtz stash, - old and new and have a play. I won't bore you with detailed descriptions, but if you have any questions, feel free to email.
Card number one, using the globe and doily dies.


Card number 2, using some of the new stamps and layering stencils:








Well, there you have it, another two to add to my box, still quite a few more to do. Hope you are all finding the time to do something creative during these busy days, - I find it actually relaxes me and that surely must be a good thing....
Thanks for your visit
xxxxx

These are amazing Astrid!! Might be quick cards for you but it would take me days to try and put together cards like these .. and they wouldn't look anywhere near as good. Love, love, love them both. hugs xx

Really wonderful cards, and I must confess that easpecially the 2nd card just hit me right in my heart. It is so gorgeous and sooo romantic, that I think I´m really in love with it. I like them both a lot, but this last one is just over the top gorgeous in my book. Well done Astrid, you really hit it here with these, and what a lucky person, who´ll recieve that last one, that´s for sure. It´s real keepsake in my book.

Two gorgeous cards Astrid. Love the muted colours and the texture. I would not be able to choose a favourite, but the snowy scene makes me wish to experience a white Christmas one of these days. TFS

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
