Yesterday, I finished a batch of cards using a digistamp, Snow Play, bought from Digistampboutique.  I had intended to print the image direct to the card but when I coloured the image with Promarkers, you could see the image through the other side of the card so I decided to use a simple coordinating mat instead and decoupage the image.  I then added a few die cut snowflakes to take the plainness off the card.

Tatty Teddy Christmas Cards

I can't believe the first week of my two weeks off work is nearly over - my dad is decorating my bathroom and I have to act as the labourer but I am hoping to be able to get some time to carry on with my Christmas cards.  Well, here are four Tatty Teddy cards that I managed to make on Monday but have only  just got around to photographing them: -


Ingredients

Me To You Ultimate Decoupage & Paper Kit
Papermania Cardstock from stash
Cuttlebug Embossing folder - snowflakes
Marieanne Creatables snowflakes dies

I have managed to make a few more since Monday but haven't photographed them yet so will do so over the next few days.

The tiling is almost all done in the bathroom and the new bath is fitted, hopefully, it won't take too much longer and I can spend more of my second week making cards!!
