The New Autumn and Winter Catalogue......

Is just bursting with goodies!  It goes live on September and I promise you, you will want to sit down with a nice cup of tea as there are so many beautiful things in there.  I make a lot of Christmas cards as they are impossible to buy here in Beijing, so when the new catalogue came out I was delighted with the choice available.

I created the traditional card above and used the wink of stella pens to add a bit of glittery shimmer to the cards.  I love this image of Father Christmas and the fact that I can create the whole card with the one stamp set.

I then wanted to create something for my daughters to give out to their friends and the card above was super quick to make.  I am currently making the santa and the elf cards too which I will share with you at a later date.  I love this card for its simplicity and speed of make.

It has been strange making Christmas cards in August when the temperature is 40 degrees outside but if you turn down the air conditioning enough and put on some Bing Crosby it could almost be December......
