Christmas but not!!

I've been meaning to join in with these challenges but never quite got there till now!!
What challenge?? 
Waltzingmouse fanatics challenge.

This one is to make a Christmas card without using Christmas stamps....time to break out the Russian dolls!!

I do like to decorate the envelope to match...

The stamps feel Christmassy to me and I went with vaguely Christmas colours!!
I love the mix and match possibilities and they're just so cute.
Hope you like it!!

Waltzingmouse November Pyjama Party

Decided it was time to get back to blogging again and this months PJ party was just the push I needed!!
So here goes with my projects.....

Challenge 1......Thankyou

My mum doesn't read this blog so I can show you this!! I've made a box of cards for her with a selection of Thankyou and birthday cards in it.
I used the 2 step floral sprig set and a selection of stampin up inks.

Challenge 2....a Christmas card

Here's the front of my card....
and here's how it looks when open.
This was my first go at an accordion card and I'm very pleased with it!

Close up of the panels using Very Vintage labels no.1, Santa from Night before Christmas and Bountiful baskets additions. The card was made using a  sizzix accordion die.

Challenge 4....Deck those halls


A star wreath.
I used Vintage Christmas background stamp to make patterned card and then cut out lots of stars!
A bit of scoring and folding in front of the TV  to make the stars 3D then I glued them to a circle of card and added some buttons to finish.
Hope you like my efforts...I had fun making them.
