Polar Bear Pals…

Good evening crafty friends, are you all ready for Christmas? We have a whole year to plan for it yet here I am again rushing around at the last minute trying to get things done. I did a big food shop today and got the last of the pressies wrapped so I think I’m getting there now

I did manage to make most of my cards this year, I love these Polar Bear stamps from MFT and until a couple of weeks ago I thought it was a Christmas set. I’ve never used the sentiments and just found out they are actually birthday stamps but I like using them for Christmas

I used them with the Memory Box grand ‘Merry Christmas’ die and some Cheery Lynn snowflakes for these quick cards…

Here’s another one, I made a few the same as this. The large snowflake is cut from card and layered three times to make an embellishment. I’ve been doing this a lot with die cuts, especially sentiments and I like the effect 


These are a bit different for me, I hope you like them for a change


I probably won’t be doing another post before Christmas so I’d like to just say thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your support throughout the year

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone
