Happy World Card Making Day! Isn't it just wonderful for card makers all around the world to have a special day to celebrate making cards and have a really good excuse (not that we ever need one!) to get up to our eyes in ink?
Today I'm trying to make a batch of Christmas cards. Usually I make a different card for everyone but have never quite managed to make all of my own Christmas cards and always end up (shock, horror!) buying some. So this year I'm going to try make a few cards of each design I come up with. There's no guarantee I still won't end up buying cards at the last minute but hopefully this will help.
So now onto the first card. I have to say I'm totally in love with the adorable reindeer in Hero Arts Christmas Reindeer set - every time I see their cute little faces I have to smile! This card started off as an attempt at a CAS card but I never seem to be able to restrain myself from adding bits and pieces!

The second card has the other reindeer from the Christmas Reindeer set. This guy looks like a fun character so I had to put him in the middle of a snowball fight.

I wouldn't have been able to make this last card without my very good friend Linda, who send me a big batch of something I've been trying to get here for years - glossy paper that somehow actually lets alcohol inks and the blending solution do their magic - thanks again so much, Linda:) Making this card even brought the smell of Christmas into the house. I've haven't used StazOn in a long time but as soon as I opened up the pad, it reminded me of the almond paste my mum makes for Christmas cakes - yummy!
