Christmas cards

Hi all, I have a couple of cards that I have made for the Christmas Card Club, the first one should have been posted a couple of weeks ago but as I am not feeling my usual self I am way behind.
Snowballs was the theme chosen by Sue, I used a copyright free image from the web and added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Glue, the star holographic card is ages old I have added some pearls, twine and sentiment.
My second card is based on the theme 'Use Kraft Card' this was chosen by Clare.  I have used Papermania 6x6 Kraft card base which I embossed with a SU snowflake stamp the embossing powder is called Peanut, this is the first time I have used wet embossing for a very long time.  The image is Marci a La La Land Digi image, I have coloured her with promarkers, the sentiment came with the image.  I used some copper coloured glitter card and two Marianne die cut trees in SU Kraft card then added Tulip Blue Pearls in a bottle. 
I want to apologise for not being around in blogland for some time but things are just not going right for me at the moment, crafting has become quite difficult for me.  I want to thank my lovely loyal supporters for visiting and leaving me comments they really help so much.
I have noticed that a lot of people are joining Bloglovin, I have the badge at the top of my blog if you feel that I am worthy of following, I have transferred all the blogs that I follow over to Bloglovin so I think that I am still with you, I am afraid I do not quite understand it all.
I will be posting again tomorrow with a selection of Easter cards that my mum asked me to make, once again I am a bit behind making them but she was pleased with what I came up with, so until then have a great weekend.

These are lovely Christmas cards Lorraine, the blue looks so nice with the Kraft on the second one and I love the holographic card stock on the first one.
I'm sorry to hear that you are still finding things a little difficult - this horrible cold and miserable weather doesn't help, we need some warm sunshine to lift our spirits a little.
I have transferred all of the blogs that I am following over to Bloglovin so will keep in touch with you.
Take care.

Beautiful cards Lorraine,love them both.xxx

scrappymo! said...

Two wonderful cards! You have been busy. Love them both...I smiled when you mentioned that you had not wet embossed for a long time...me either...funny how we use different trends at different times.

That little penquin with the snowballs was the perfect image for that theme. The card turned out adorable!

The kraft with the wet embossed snowflakes is just wonderful...you did a great job on the lovely image and the I really like the gorgeous blue colour you chose, with the kraft.

Hope time brings you to a better place...I will be happy to hear when you are feeling stronger and I think everyone understands when someone is feeling overwhelmed. i think you should create and blog when you feel able and don't worry about getting round to visit till you feel you are ready and able to tackle that...
Take care and crafty hugs to you!
