Yet more Christmas and Cricut



Morning Peeps, just popping in with a couple of shares of cards I have created using new Vintage Christmas releases from Nicecrane Designs.

Tomorrow I am off to then NEC, I was given some complimentary tickets so it would be rude not to, so I have my 'need', 'want' and 'must have' lists ready and so looking forward to catching up with one or two friendly faces. I don't actually need anything but I am thinking I won't come home empty handed because even if crafting is difficult I can still wield a debit card quite efficiently !


And here's one I made with the Cricut using Animal Kingdom and Celebrations cartridges and some Pan Pastel clouds and below another from the Nicecrane Vintage Christmas images. Links to all below


Have a good Wednesday all.

Love the cards! I don't think I would ever dare to go to the NEC. I spend WAY too much at the Make It show in Farnborough every year, and I know that's a fraction of the size.

I love your cards - those vintage Nicecrane images are so pretty. I like how you did the ribbon on the easel card - very clever! I don't know what NEC is but I've read about a few bloggers going - sounds like a huge craft exhibition - it sounds amazing - I would be in my glory - I know you will have fun! Oh by the way, I added a follower button after you suggested it the other day - thank you. I've only been blogging since June, and (don't laugh) but I didn't know how, but in the end it was super easy. A few others had asked me about it too, so I thought it was time. Thanks for all the inspiration I get from your blog - it's always a pleasure to visit :-)

Kat said...

Gorgeous cards Brenda, love that cute elephant. The vintage Christmas cards are such lovely rich Christmas colours. I can't do vintage at all!! I've been such a bad blogger and missed so much recently but I've had a lovely catch up just now.

Hope you have a lovely day at the NEC. I was reading Kath's blog earlier and see she set off from Aberdeen this morning to demonstrate the Fiskars Fuse. Hope she manages to behave!

Take care and thanks for always visiting me.
