Christmas ornaments

Yip, time to think about Christmas!!!I made these 'homemade' Christmas ornaments for our crafties getogether, very easy ones that you can even do with the kids or grandkids. the crystal bead angel is just strung onto thread, the cone should have been a bit longer,misjudged myself here, but it can still be filled with candy, i made a swirly pattern on cardstock with glue, poured glitter all over it and let it dry.the rest is easy just stick down your lace and put a ribbon on. the star is made of 1 toilet roll cut into pieces after you cover it with a shiny paper, then cover the top and bottom with paper ,lay down and glue together, glitter, embellish etc,, very nice and easy to do. I saw all these ideas on the internet but i just look and do , dont keep url's,,i just do it once. Hope you like them too.

Christmas cards

Its about time I post on my blog again, been down with a lower back pain but i'm on the recovery. I made this double pocket card for the Scorpals group challenge, a great idea for a voucher and b/day or Christmas card.   You can make this card too, the tutorial is here
Other punches used are Martha Stewart double loop and a circular punch, unknown make, but i just punched at 4 sides.
