Preparing for Christmas 2020 - January

Hi Everyone,

This year, I am planning to make some Christmas cards each month, so that I have a decent enough pile of cards ready to post out in December. I am hoping to make at least 2 cards each month. Anything else will be a bonus :0) Let's see how I get along!

Would you like to join me in this little "challenge"? Let me know in the comments, if you do - we can cheer each other up! 

For January, I made two CAS cards with some lovely stamps by Jane's Doodles

As you can see, they're simple enough - some ink blending for the background, some Copic colouring, fussy cutting, and pretty much voila! ;o) I am really happy with how they turned out, and I am particularly happy with the colouring of the little church - the lights really look like they're glowing inside the building during this snowy night, don't they?

On a separate note, I am loving the cool "spotlight" kinds of stencils that have appeared on the market recently - they save tonnes of masking paper, and lots of time, too! My circle ones are by Trinity Stamps, and I am very happy with the sizes of these. 

Okay so, January done and dusted, let's see if I manage again next month!

Stay warm,
