DCM - Inchies

The dare this week on DCM is to use 5 inchies on your card. Now I am not going to apologise for making a Christmas card so early, it needs to be done. On the Bubblyfunk forum, we decided to have a 25th club, making a certain amount of Christmas cards for the 25th of every month to be more prepared this year. I did say I was going to be making 2, but guess how many I've done? That's right, bugger all!!

So I've used the gorgeously yummy MME Colourful Christmas papers and cut inchies of the tiny trees and snowflakes, all edged with Janice and my fave inkpad, perfect plumeria!

Mind you, I did have a bit of a mood on me earlier as those rotten pixies had hidden my box of Christmas stamps. I searched and searched for them, completely knackering myself during the process. However, whilst doing this, i found the printer paper they hid a while ago. Maybe they swapped this for the stamps? The only trouble is, I'd ordered a pack of paper with my Tesco shop this week and, when it arrived, I discovered that I must have clicked 2. So now I have 3 packs of paper!!!

I did find the stamps in the end in one of my bedroom cupboards with my winter shoes. I definately wouldn't have put them there; what a daft place to put stamps!!

I can now blog last weeks Rosie-Dee card using the theme of 'sea'. I used a Hero Arts cat stamp and a freebie owl from Craft Stamper mag and cut the rest by hand. Oh and I coloured them using copics again.

So that just leaves me with a sneaky peek to show you for tomorrow's challenge.

Thanks for coming over to mine xx

Kax, these creations are gorgeous. Love your style and how you've so creatively used the inchies on the first. Lovely festive Xmas card.

Janice said...

Thanks for inviting me lol! I'm just finishing my DCM and, yes I am using Perfect Plumeria ha ha ha! Fortunately, I ducked out of the 25th club as I doubt if I could have kept up. You wont have to buy paper for a while - unless you manage to lose 3 packs :o

Janice said...

What a dope, me not you! I forgot to say how gorgeous your cards are :D
