Wishes of Joy

Hello , welcome to my room .

Spare a thought for the East Coast of Australia and those who are experiencing such horrid extreme
weather conditions.

As usual Monday nights I find it hard to be creative because much of my inks and tools are packed ready for
 Tuesday morning workshop.
But I did manage to make a
couple more Christmas cards.

Every time I use my bigshot now , I am in the habit of embossing extra pieces of whatever dies  I am using at the time just for nights like tonight.

Both cards here are Real Red card bases, with Whisper White embossed layer.
On the first card  shown here , I have used
 Merry christmas , a Kaiserstamp,
and a stocking with pocket from older stash so unknown source. I 3D the pocket and the teddy.
I inked in Real Red and Pacific Point. The bear I coloured with SU watercolor pencils, and the stars with a gold pen.

For the second card, I chalked the edges of the embossed white  in a blue from  SU Stampin' pastels and some yellow in the centre.
The stars are  left overs  from an earlier card . Punched from Whisper White and Glitter paper.

 Here again I 3D embellishments . All the little greetings are from a set by Hero Arts .

    Hope you like these quick and easy cards tonight . This will be
11 cards now for me .

                            Cheers for now , catch you again soon
