I'm Late I'm Late, I'm Late

In January, I made a half hearted resolution to be more organised at Christmas time. Maybe next year....  So I need some cards, and fast. This calls for stamps and dies and lots of Distress. Luckily it also ties in with our Christmas challenge at Country View Crafts this month.



I thought I would make a mini assembly line, so I stamped the background cards and all the elements, and cut them out with the corresponding dies. They are all Tim Holtz sets and have matching stamps and dies.

These have  been stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Inks and a water brush.
Same again for this one plus lots of  Distress Stickles. These are fab 'cos you can dry them with a heat gun so there's no hanging around for it to dry. There's also some snowy acetate on top. 
This one's been made on an alcohol ink  background. I guess I'm not much good at batch card making!
So if you're like me, and Christmas has crept up suddenly, don't forget to join in with our challenge and share your Christmas makes.

I'll not be around for the next couple of weeks, we're jetting off for some sunshine (though the weather forecast isn't looking too good) so I will catch up with you all when I get back. Have a fun week, and thanks very much for looking x
