Inchie and Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone. Hope your weekend went well. Nice to see that we have lighter mornings in the UK now that the clocks have changed. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts and I hope you enjoy what you find here

At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is vegetables.


Here is mine with a humble carrot on a gold background to make it look more regal. I love carrots and eat at least one every day-sometimes cooked sometimes just to nibble raw

My Christmas card making is like waiting for a bus--you wait for ages for one and then two come at the same time. I am joining Marina again at My Perfect Life where she is still making beautiful Christmas cards each week for her 48 week challenge-week 42 now.



These are a bit similar but I thought I would try some simpler cards. I used some hammered card I had for a while and just folded the A4 piece in half. The papers were printed out on the computer and at least one was my own design. The sentiments were all free on Google long ago. The flowers I made by designing a flower shape and printing it out in different sizes. It took ages to cut them out but it is very relaxing. The Christmas tree die cuts I bought at a local Craft Fayre that was being held for charity-still lots more in the bag yet :)


Have a great day everyone 

Love Chrissie x

  9. Yum -- carrot - so pretty and regal. Your Christmas cards are gorgeous - they don't look simple to me. I wish I could get myself motivated to start making mine, but the mood isn't hitting me yet.
