The challenge on Card Crafter's Circle Challenge   is Christmas in July.

I adore these Lili of the Valley stamps and I hope their new ones out soon will include some with this little girl.  Coloured with Promarkers and cut out using a Spellbinders Labels Thirteen die.  I added glitter to the trim on the hood and the snow on the ground.

More topper cards

A few more cards made with the toppers hiding in my cupboard,  

Here is another window die, the Heartfelt Creations one with a Kanban 
topper behind it and Marianne flourish dies behind a Kanban sentiment.  I also cut the backing card using a Spellbinders Grand die.

Here is another card using the same window and backing card but with the window shutters closed.  Looks a bit plain in the scan like this.

and another card using the same window and more Kanban toppers and sentiments.

This time the window is cut with mirri card and the rest of the backing card from the card I made yesterday.  I like this card and will have to see if I can get anymore of it.

Various Kanban toppers and sentiments,

Terrible weather

What terrible weather, deffinately not the weather to have a holiday.

Back to crafting.  I have not made a card for a couple of weeks but I will be back to normal soon.  I have a few to show you using my new dies and some toppers I have had for a few years.  Why I bought so many I don't know as I have hardly used any but they cannot stay unused.  

The topper is a Kanban one from a few years ago and she is matted onto the Spellbinders Lacey Squares die and the Poinsettia is also a Spellbinders set of dies.  I think the Poinsettia one is going to be well used this year.  The backing card is also from Kanban.

Another Kanban topper put behind a window die from Cottage Cutz.  The sentiment is also from Kanban and put ontop of a Spellbinders die and the flourish's are cut from a Marianne die.  I printed the card used to make the base last year and I think it was from a Crafter's Companion CD.

I have LOADS more toppers and I am determined to use them this year, well maybe not all of them but I will use a good number of them.  They make good quick cards especially with the dies I have.

Cottage Cutz Spring Window die,
