Craftwork Cards Candi Christmas Cards

Good morning to all my lovely crafty friends and a special welcome today to my new follower Sandra. Thank you Sandra for joining my blog I hope you find time to visit often and  enjoy my posts, I hope everyone is having a great week and enjoyed the recent good weather .
Well I have been doing a lot of crafting this week but most of it is for later in the month or September as I'm getting ahead of things before my holidays.
Some of you will remember last Christmas I made a few cards using a Craftwork Cards Christmas Candi pad I got at the GNPE well a few weeks ago we made some more at the craft group I go to so I thought I'd share them with you.

  1. Hello Carole

    Two stunning Christmas cards, the papers are gorgeous.
    I love the little gems and bakers twine on your first card, and
    what a brilliant idea to use the acorn and leaves from
    a cracker.

    Just beautiful.

    Raining here too.


  2. Hello Carole.I love your cards. Gorgeous papers and designs. The colours are a perfect combination, and I just love the NOEL lettering on the bottom one.
