Festive Friday

No Christmas cards today...I've been busy making these Halloween treats all week for my archery class. The stamp is from Ippity's That's Creepy set and I used my Stampin' Up circle punches for the cute little archery target.

Festive Friday

One of the fun things about making my own Christmas cards each year is going back through my Christmas stamps and remembering the year I purchased them. I would buy one Christmas stamp each year and make all my Christmas cards the same. Today's card uses a stamp I purchased in 2005 for that reason. Over the last few years I've made all my Christmas cards different which allows me to go back and re-visit my favourites year after year...and of course purchase a few new ones too!!!
Supplies:- Royal Mail by Penny Black, Christmas Punch by SU, PTI white cardstock, brilliance ink, SU markers, SU tag punch, SU coloured cardstock, unknown DP, eyelet, foam dots and SU ribbon.
