Get ready for the Holiday's Blog Hop

Well, there's nothing like a short deadline to get the creative juices flowing!

I've managed three Christmas Cards - I like to keep my holiday cards quite simple, as I have a lot to make and need them to be fairly quick. I also try not to make them too bulky so as to keep the postage down. (I'm
sorry the photos aren't great, but my PSE programme is on the very sick laptop)

My cards feature Poinsettia Fairy and Tia the Holiday Fairy by Michelle Perkett. These are lovely digi stamps to colour - I've used ProMarkers to colour mine, with some HobbyCraft Glitter Glue and Strawberry Ultra Fine Flower Soft to add some sparkle and texture.

Thanks for taking the time to join us for the Blog Hop - be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by my friends in the Michelle Perkett Studio Group at Paper Craft Planet - see the post below for the full list of blogs in this hop, and please do add your comments (and follow my blog) as I'd love to know what you think of my cards and have more here waiting to be photographed ;-)

Your next stop is with Sharon
- Enjoy!

Hi Barbara,

love your Christmas cards, and the flower soft is soooo effective: I've never used it but this card has made me decide to give it a try, thanks for the inspiration! Hugs, Ali x
