CHRISTMAS IS ON THE CARDS.....

Christmas is on its way, and the shops and cafes seem to be playing Christmas music already (seems a little bit early to me though?)!!  We have some more festive makes tonight for you, made by the team, hopefully to inspire you to be creative this weekend too.  Starting with beautiful tags by clever Lynne, which have been published in the latest edition of Somerset Life.  If you haven't checked out the American magazines from Somerset Studio, you must, as you have a treat in store, they are great!....






Lynne's work is often to be found amongst the glorious pages of these magazines.  The tags here were created with the help of CI-446 and its curly words, gold powders, gems and fabric!  Look out for more of these unique hand drawn words by our great friend Linda Edwards, coming soon to a shop near you (and on our website too of course).

I also made a card with one of the words, plus CI-369.....


....And I have two very lovely festive cards by Daniele to show you as well....



The first features the curly Noel word again, and both other main images are from an elements plate CI-396. Stunning!

My final cards of this evening are by Sylvie, and have beautifully contemporary backgrounds...



The first features more curly words, plus our London city skyline CI-359, and the second has Santa, riding over the rooftops from CI-398.

More about Christmas coming soon.  Hope you are now feeling inspired to create yourself?!
