I have already posted one card this year but let's make this week the first official week, and I know there will be missing Wednesdays but I'm going to put myself out there and aim for 35 Wonderland posts before the end of November. My target card pile number this year is 75 compared to 60 last year because I managed to create 70 and still ran out (need to cut down the list! ha ha) so it would be nice to really be over what I need and maybe ease off a bit next year.
Of course, I'm not just making Christmas cards from my own creative inspiration. Naturally I'm playing along with the delightfully delectable girls over at Jingle Belles. This will be my 3rd year joining in and if you haven't been over there, you really should. Lauren and Steffi are so talented and produce just the most beautiful creations - you can't help but be inspired.
The prompt for this week was to be inspired by this gorgeous image.
Isn't it just gorgeous. Doesn't it make you feel all warm and cosy and ready to snuggle up under a blanket with a hot chocolate?
So I started off just fishing out all the whites, reds, creams and anything else which seemed to say Scandinavia to me and got going.
|I found this mirrored reindeer hanging around and didn't think it needed anything else.|
|and it really is quite a good mirror as you can see|
|This is the last of these ready-made snowflakes which were salvaged from shop bought cards which were too large to post reasonably. Again, good to see it used up and finished off.|
This whole card-making malarky doesn't come easily to me but I'm happy with this little collection!
Too early for you to make Christmas cards?
ps. This is a message to Michele of "Michele's Scrapy Creations". You won my giveaway but I haven't heard from you! Please get in touch with me by the end of the weekend (3rd February). If I don't hear from you, I will pick another name out of the hat.
