Back from chillin....

Hello folks!!! I've been scheduling posts for the past few weeks as I've been on my hols! Hubbie and I went to The Maldives and spent an amazing 2 weeks chilling out and snorkelling. It was so wonderful and much needed after another really tough year. I'm so hoping 2012 will be a better year for us all.

Anyway, thought I'd just show you this amazing photo hubbie took of our beautiful little island! Breathtaking, no?!

So I thought I'd post some more of my Papertrey Ink cards I did before I went on hols so you don't get too bored with my blog!!

This card is inspired by Debbie Olsen here. I used my new Damask snowflake die again but this time used both parts of this. I then stamped a tree from the Love Lives Here Holiday set and assembled on top of the snowflake. Also added plenty spots of Crystal Stickles. The stripey piece of paper is by Pink Paislee which I cut out using the PTI Half and Half die- loving the scalloped end. The sentiment is from the Photo Finishers set and cut out with the matching die which I LURVE!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (PTI); Paper (Pink Paislee); Assorted cardstock; Inks (Stampin Up); Dies- snowflake, tree, sentiment (PTI); Button (PTI); Crystal Stickles

The second card is another simple one inspired by Michelle Wooderson here. I used the Holiday Photo Finishers set for this and stamped and die cut the little star from the Love Lives Here Holiday set.

I'd like to enter both these cards into the A Passion for Papertrey challenge this week which is a Christmas card.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (PTI); Papers (Stampin Up); Button (PTI); Twine; Gems (K & Co)
