25th Club

Can't believe it's the 25th of the month again already! sssh..I know I'm a day late posting!! I really enjoyed getting my pizza box out full of Christmas papers - yum. My target is to make 2 Christmas cards on the 25th of each month so here are two more to the collection!

I just love this card IRL. I am so sorry I can't remember the names of the papers as they are off cuts as far as I can remember they are from Making Memories. Just noticed looking at this photo I haven't put a star on top of the tree! It will have one on before posting!

This design was inspired by a lovely article written by Kathy over on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog. There are always gorgeous articles added every day & it is always worth visiting when you get the chance.

The 2nd card I've made is using even smaller scraps from my Christmas paper collection I really do save all my scraps no matter what size!!

The great design for this card came from Sketch # 1 on Kathy's Sketch File..... I adore Kathy's sketches especially this one! anyone noticed!! Thank You Kathy. xxx

I took a couple of photos of my 2nd card because I am never happy with the lighting or the angle & would you believe logged up 30 shots of these 2 cards!!! & then couldn't decide between these 2 images! I am neither a photographer or a card maker but I do try my best & enjoy dabbling. :)

I've used Making Memories left over papers & backed them on piece of Basic Grey figgy pudding paper. I have inked the edges of my inch squares & used a chippie snowflake covered in pearl Rangers dabber. The snowflake was from a monthly kit from Bubbly Funk.

Thank you ever so much for looking at my cards today. xx


  1. these are both lovely Gez. I really should get my act together and make some shouldn't I? X

  2. Wow you are so organised Gez!!!

    I vowed i was going to do this in 2009, as yet my plans have been slightly sidetracked so to speak. :)

    Lovely cards anyway.

  3. These are both fab cards - you're doing such a wonderful job woth your Christmas 2009 campaign! When you've made enough for yourself, you can get started on mine....

    I think I'll have to rename that sketch "Gez's Sketch" must say, I like the ones you've made much more than any of the ones I made myself!

  4. Awe, thank you Kathy. XXX

    Calv - organised ME!!! I wish...hehehe!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Have a lovely weekend. xx

  5. I also love that sketch by Kathy - super Christmas cards - well done for getting ahead with these. I ought to have joined the club because I make so many, but have only made a couple this year so far. x

  6. those are beautiful gez,well done :)

  7. You are turning into a real cardmaker Gez and don't deny it.
    Those 2 are really lovely, well done.

  8. cor what gorgeous cards Gez - that second one looks fab! You've done well with your cards, I haven't started this months yet...xx

    Have a great weekend xx

  9. These look fab Gez, I do like the patchwork look with the little squares and it's a great way to use up the offcuts!

    If it's any comfort - I usually take 12-15 pics of anything I make and then dither for ages about which one I'm going to use. Sometimes I end up going back and doing another batch, too!

  10. Oh I love those Gez, well done for getting on with them. Love the chippie snowflake.


Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate your thoughts.
Have a nice day.
Love Gez.xx
