More Christmas Cards...

...at least I should be ready when this year's Christmas cards season begins...this is the theory, at any rate ;-).

As you can probably tell, I haven't cleaned up the detritus from last week's Christmas card-making session...soooooo, these ones are in very much the same vein....the stuff was all there, ready to go!

List of Ingredients:

Stamps: Merry and Bright (Papertrey Ink) and Believe (Papertrey Ink);
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip (plain and textured cardstock), Real Red, Kraft and Whisper White;
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Real Red Classic Inks;
Accessories: Crimper, Real Red Grosgrain ribbon, Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain (I used the reverse side), Gold DMC Thread, Gold and Red Kindy Glitz, Dimensionals, Gold Brads, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip and SNAIL adhesive.

Also, I wanted to show you some happy snaps taken with my birthday present - a Tamron 10 - 24 mm lens.....a lovely wide angle for landscapes etc:

...the view from my bean bag, underneath our blossom tree (I wish you could hear the bees)!

...Lake Tuggeranong on a beautiful sunny afternoon...

...Just chillin'!

Have a lovely day,

Sam, the cards are gorgeous as are the pictures you've taken with your new lens. Looks like you're having beautiful weather in Canberra unlike the chill/rain fest we are having here in Melbourne!

You really need to send some creative energy my way, I haven't even thought of Christmas cards yet, so cute. Happy birthday, lucky girl, I would love a wide angle lens, that and the 70-200 2.8 are the top of my list of photographic wants, then a flash and then.....:-)
