Fun with Kraft for Christmas

I'm just realizing as I type this heading that you might all be "Christmas carded" out!?!
As you can see I'm totally NOT! I love making cards and Christams cards is up there with some of my favourite ones to do!! Not to mention that I've been trying (and now succeeded) in making ALL of my Christmas cards before our baby arrives! YAY!! I'm sure now that I have more than enough!

So yesterday I played with some very simple ideas using Kraft! I think these are the sorts of cards that my sister would really LOVE, very plain and Arty like! (Hello SARAH!!!) Oh that's right I also pulled out my sewing machine too, which was heaps of fun and sewed on every card I made!!!
SO here they are...

This one is just with a star punch (ridding hood red card stock) and then a greeting from Many merry Messages

This one is made with the deer from Winter Post stamped in Versamark and then punched out with the square punch. The Noel once again is from the Many Merry messages set (stamped in Real red.) I've raised the deer square with dimensionals and roughed the edges with my bone folder.

This last one for today is using Circle Circus stamp set, all stamped in Real red and then sewed on the hanging strings! The word stamp is from Occasional greetings. I love the font of this stamp, it's soooooo elegant and pretty!

Now lastly here is a picture of my youngest daughter Sophia! Who insisted that I take a photo of her too whilst I was outside snapping my cards! (note the lunch left overs on her chin!! he he)
Oh so gorgeous!
Well that's me for today! I'm hoping to show you some wonderful new creations using some new sets from the mini tomorrow. Yes that's right the Summer mini start TOMORROW!!! That's if I don't have a baby in the mean time!! Official due date TODAY but what does that mean... REALLY!?! Anyway you've gotta have goals!!
Hugs to you all
Smiles SHarnee :0)
