A bit of a Making Fest....

Hi guys...well while the weather was giving it all yesterday I stayed tucked up in the craft room having a good old play...
I wasn't overly happy with my card for this weeks Less is More theme challenge - String or I made another....

I had forgotten about this very lush Penny Black 'Starlit' tree stamped it with Versamark then embossed it with white detail powder...wrapped around three lengths of 'True Hemp' twine in black grey and white.  The tiny sentiment tag is SU and I punched a silver one and made a spotty one to match the tree.  OK the twine isn't very imaginative but its finishes the card nicely....
While I was on a I thought I would make a card for this week Allsorts Challenge - Treemendous -
Now I always wanted to try this ...using a die to cut the aperture and then mounting over a piece of DP....the die is a Marianne (I think)..mounted on to a red card and finished with Twine and the tiny tag again.
I then had a play with my new stash from Clearly Besotted....I have seem these Christmas stamps while blog hopping and I have been itching to use them...
Just a nice and simple card....just like this one...
I just used the Clearly Besotted dies for simple but I love it...think this might just be my Christmas cards this year...
So there you have it...the results of a cosy day in the craft room.
I hope you all have a very good week.  I'm popping off for a week to stay with friends to have a change of scene and re charge the old batteries especially after the past few weeks.  Ollie has gone on his holidays too...he is being totally spoilt at my Sisters...and LilyPuss is being looked after here at home....she's is thoroughly enjoying being Top Cat again while Ollies not
So bye for now
Happy Crafting
