Good morning, it's a beautiful Sunday morning, the sun is shining and I am planning to have a very chilled out day :) 

Thank you to everyone who attended my classes this week, as always I had two very enjoyable evenings. 

Above are the cards we made ... you would never guess I loved dogs, lol :)

The first card started as a completely different card when I first went to the Craft Room but this is how it turned out.  I love this window die set and I have used it many times.  It is from Stampin Up, as is the poinsettia punch I used for the flower.  The church stamp and die set is a Recollections set.  I covered the window with snowy acetate although it is a little hard to see in the photograph.  I had lots of off cuts from last year's box frames so I thought it was an excellent way of using it. When I was finished this card I thought there was something missing so I added the little wooden snowflake at the top corner. I glittered this with Stardust Stickles.

The little puppy from the second card is also from a Recollections stamp and die set, there are 3 puppies in the set and they are all adorable.  The kennel is from a set I had in my craft stash - the brand is Amy Design . I have used the Stampin Up snowfall embossing folder which seems to be my most used folder at Christmas - I tend to use it on almost every card.  The snowflake is also one of my most added embellishments on my Christmas cards as I think it fills an empty space and looks well at the same time.

The last card is my favourite, the lamp post is my most recent purchase - it is a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Die and I love it!! It cuts incredibly well and I am also able to cut two of each item at a time.  The little dog and bone are from a Sizzix Thinlits Die Set called Country Canines.  This is quite a quick card to put together once all the pieces have been cut out.

My next Christmas Card Classes are on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th September. 

I hope you all have the most fantastic day and a fun filled Bank Holiday weekend.  :)

I will be back soon with some more Craft Creations.

Bye for now.

Take care,  Heather
