Christmas cards? Cute and sparkly, of course!

Ugh, my most dreaded time of the year has come... And no, I don' t even mean winter... I just mean the time when it's dark when I leave to work, and dark when I come back home. I could even live with the almost-depressive feeling of that, and the fact that whenever I arrive home, it feels like it's the middle of the night & I should be heading straight to bed. But what I really dislike is... I cannot take nice photos of my crafty creations in proper daylight!!! I can get away with it during the weekends, but week days are unfortunately a no-go. So apologies in advance - there might be some gloomy yellowish photos appearing over the next few weeks :o( Any good advice on the best ways to take photos in the "middle of the night"? Everything will be hugely appreciated! I am sure my crafty friends will have some good tips for me! :o)

Now, enough moaning, let's get down to business! 

I have been making quite a few cards to order over the last few days (busy is tiring, but it's soooo good & nice to know that people actually want to order cards from me, YAY!), and slowly but surely Christmas creations are starting to peek out from my craft room also. I will hopefully be sharing most of them over the next few weeks (some are forbidden until after Christmas, sorry!), so stay tuned! 

Today we have a sparkly cutesy one - my favourite combo! I made a few similar ones last year also, and they were a huge success! I guess nobody could simply not like this cuddly little guy, right? Don't you just want to give him a big squeeze? (and by the way, rob some of those gifts, LOL) I am just after noticing that this stamp has already retired, AND is out of stock - so if you like it and would like one, I guess you better hurry up and ask around amongst your crafty circles - someone might have one to give away for adoption, hopefully! 

This is another one of those "simple but pretty" creations, as I call them... Sometimes less is more :o)

I am entering this cute and sparkly creation into the following challenges:
Inky Impressions - Creative Corners
I Love Promarkers - Cute Christmas
QKR Stampede - 3 of a kind 

The weekend is almost here - have a good one!
