Christmas Critters

Morning all and thanks for popping by today. I made this card at the weekend for a couple of challenges but I've only just got around to taking a photo of it......

I used one of the old LOTV toppers which I die-cut and matted with Xcut dies. The strip of card was embossed with a folder that was a magazine freebie with some thin strips of red paper added on the top and bottom. Finally I added a Tattered Lace snowflake die with a gem to finish.

I made this for the Allsorts challenge 'christmas creatures' and as I used  snippets of card I'm heading over to play at  Pixie's Snippets Playground

So is anyone else beginning to panic like me about the number of christmas cards they've still got to make or are you super organised? This is the only card I've managed to make since my last post and Mojo has gone into hiding again so not sure when the next one will get made!


  1. Fabulous card Andrea....make some more the same or with a different topper as its agreat must go look and see if I have that embossing folder have sparked my imagination!....and see if any extra time is hiding in the drawer too!xx

  2. What a gorgeous card, Andrea! I love the beautiful cute image, the embossed background and the big snowflake! Kisses, my friend.

  3. It's a perfect image for our Allsorts theme this week Andrea, so pleased you joined in.

  10. This is so cute Andrea. Love the embossed panel too xx

  11. Fabulous card Andrea, very elegant yet with such a sweet image. I'm with you about loss of mojo - the Playground is forcing me to keep crafting but at times it's hard work when I just stare into space waiting for inspiration! I'm almost on track with my Christmas cards but we shall see. At times a couple of packets of shop bought ones to send to non card making friends seems very tempting.

    Great to see you in the Playground!

  12. This is so darling, Andrea! I love your fun design! Egads, no, I am so far behind with my cards, too! I'm beginning to think I must ENJOY the adrenaline of getting several dozen cards made in only three days, lol!! I hope hubby continues to improve!! Hugs, Darnell
