More Christmas Jack and Robyn

It's almost the weekend and I have visitors coming tomorrow. Thankfully they're not arriving until midnight so I can get the house tidied AFTER I've made a card. Like how I've got my priorities straight lol?
I have a few card samples of the new Christmas Jack and Robyn stamps that I thought I'd show you. I made these quite a while ago so it's great seeing them again and now I'm itching to ink them up again.

This is one of them...I LOVE this card...probably because of it's simplicity and the colours. Tell me what you think...

This image cracks me up...I love Jack's shocked expression. I ran some Co-oredination's cs through an embossing folder on my Cuttlebug and scuffed up the snow so you'd see it better. After colouring in the image I attacked it with my favourite snow glitter and added the Gotcha! sentiment that comes with the set. I found the button in a pack at the back of a drawer. I bought them a year or so ago and thought I'd lost them or surely not, thrown them out by mistake!



It's not all that long till Christmas...isn't it scary how fast this year has gone by. I promised myself at the beginning of the year I'd make one or two Christmas cards a week so I wasn't stressing at the beginning of December. But I guess I must strive on stress these days because I haven't been fulfilling my promise lol.
I went for a run this morning and look who were cheering me on....

This one was behind the other cow in the first picture. After I'd taken the first one, she obviously wanted a picture taken on her own so just as I was about to set off she walked up to the fence and who was I to deny her lol.

I had a power meeting this morning (oooh don't I sound all business like lol) for some new images that I KNOW you're going to love. I've been teasing the DT so hopefully it won't be long until I can show them to you!

We're almost at the finish line for the Blogaversay candy...only today and tomorrow to sign up for a chance to win some flabulous stash. You might want to check out Ladybug Pam's blogaversary candy's almost a year since she has started blogging!!

You know those one or two cards I said I was going to make yesterday? Didn't happen hmph. I've got a partial of one on the go so I'm going to try and get it finished now.

Have a great day :-D

Catch ya later xx

This is a fab card, love the expression on his face as you say.

As for the cows, when I was a little girl we had a field at the bottom of the garden where cows were, they used to come in to the garden and eat the veg and flowers, my mother was always shooing them out, happy memories.
