Christmas Money Envelope - HOTP Sara Surfaces

We've reached a point where a toy won't do for our lovely niece so only either a gift voucher or money will do the job. I bought a bargain pack of Hot Off the Press Sara Surfaces from QVC and didn't have the right occasion to use them until now. I've used some Papermania Christmas range clip, brad and ribbon, got them cheap at WH Smith and the paper is from generic stash (honestly I can't remember).

Christmas Night Card - La Pashe Decoupage bits

Another creation from Vince with some elements from La Pashe Remember when ...

The boy comes from one set and the dog from another, the rest is some more découpage from Making Cards magazine papers that are given free in each issue. Baubles are from the adhesive rhinestones I bought from QVC UK. I really like the tongue in cheek message the boy has written to Santa...LOL Another beautiful card if I may say so from supa Vince ! 8-)

Robin staring in Bauble Christmas Card

Vince created this stunner from scratch, I asked him what he was doing the other day and he created a template so he can repeat this very cute Robin. He also drew the image on his computer and printed the bauble. Paper is from a generic stash we got cheap (no pun LOL). The white pen is White Daisy from Close to My Heart.

Snowmen Merry Christmas Card - Close to My Heart Stamp

Ohhhhh I love snowmen ! Close to my Heart 'All decked up' snowmen stamps are so versatile, Vince created something very very cute here. He printed the big Merry Christmas running some hammered cardstock through the printer then stamped the snowmen faces and decoupaged them. Only 26 days to go and counting ! Yay !

Xmas Robins - Cuddly Buddly / Home for Christmas stamp

Wow, Vince really went the extra mile with this card, I simply adore the irregular matting and the doodling is just the right touch. The stamp with the two robins (Cuddly Buddly - Home for Christmas) is découpaged giving the card that extra dimension. A tiny pressie brad from Hot Off the Press just finish the card off beautifully.
