I may still be sick...

but at least I'm feeling well enough to sit at my crafty table for short periods of time. I was playing with this BG Wassail Card Kit that I bought last Christmas (I tend to hoard my much-loved BG!!!). Oh, who am I trying to kid... I tend to hoard all things crafty that I love!!

Anyhow, as one would expect from BG, the kit directions were easy to follow and the results are so cute! Love these cards! Well, maybe I don't 'love' the bird one, but still... And the kit has leftover rub-ons to customize the card insides or use on other projects!

It may not show up well in some of the pictures, but I added bling (of course, it's Christmas!!) to some of the cards and that was not included in the kit.

This one is one of my favourites! Love all those little trees all lined up... I would imagine it would cost extra to mail because it is not a 'standard' size and it has a bunch of chipboard bumpies on it.

Yeah, it's kind of a freaky looking bird (well, more so than other birds, I think), and this is probably my least favourite card of the kit, but perhaps one of my non-bird-phobic friends will get this one!

I really like this one too!!

Moxie Fab World: Plum Crazy!!

Check out this challenge on the Moxie Fab World Blog here - you have until midnight on Monday, November 16th to play along! I like plum (purple, eggplant, aubergine)... it's a colour I don't reach for nearly often enough. And using purple for snowy glittery Christmas cards makes me Plum Happy!!
