Snowflake Daisy

Morning Muffins!

I'm a bit of a Bah Humbug when it comes to Christmas. I don't like that it starts in July. And because of that and because I'm far too stubborn for my own good, I pointedly ignore anything Christmassy until 12 December.

Every year, no matter how hard I try, I just cannot bring myself to make Christmas cards until it's much too late for me to make even a third of the cards I need. But something weird has happened to me. I think I've been abducted by Aliens. This year, I've made at least three cards already, I've enjoyed making them AND it's only October. Quick, bring me a sherry!

Anyway, I thought I'd share a little card I've made, using Snowflake Daisy from Squiggle Stamps. I love all the Daisy Images, she's such fun to colour. And I love snowflakes. (This one was sent to me earlier in the year and it's been sitting on my desk, waiting to be used.) Just not when they're piled up on my car and I'm fifteen minutes late already! The cute papers came free with a magazine. Cool huh? And the Seam Binding is from Sew Sweet. Emma stocks so many different colours, she's sure to have the one you need!

The new Challenge over at Squiggles and Giggles is Christmas Cheer. You could win a £10 Gift Voucher to spend in the lovely Squiggle Stamps Store. If you use a Squiggle Image you'll double your chances of winning. And if Daisy is not up your street, there are loads of totally cutesome Christmas Images in store to choose from.

Right, I'm off for a mince pie, I'm sure I've got some knocking around somewhere...

I'd like to enter this card at:

Hiyya Fluffy
Know what you mean, I am always late with making my cards. BUT two years ago I started making them early and have had more time nearer the festive season to do other stuff.
I now have 38 and last night made three, I am really enjoying making them.
Last night Hubby said "Is it time for you to buy ingredients for Christmas Cake and Mince Pies"....Won't tell you what I shouted!!

Unknown said...

Hi Faye, well isn't this just the cutest! Love that paper and the image is just so sweet - coloured perfectly as always! I'm right there with you not liking to start Christmas too early. Altho I'm happy for things to start on the 1st Dec - it's when we put our decos up. I always end up making very quick, last minute cards for Christmas - luckily we have hardly any friends or family so I've not a lot to make!!! Altho I did have to make 25 last year for daughters' friends - she's got more than us two oldies put together! Sarah

Hello there Fluff darling! I adore this card - perfect papers and the snowflakes are lovely! That image looks like a store bought die cut; your coloring is amazingly brilliant! I'm like you - I can't do the Christmas card thing before December and never in July. It just isn't cold enough to put me in the mood. Love your work, my dear!
