"Little Christmas Cards"

Hello Blog friends, followers and poppers by.  Welcome to my Blog, I hope you like what you see and pop back again soon.  For all my followers a BIG thank you for all the support and comments.  Without the imput from all you wonderful people none of this would be worth while.
I would also like to welcome two new followers, thank you for pressing the "Follow this Blog" button I really appreciate it.  & have both decided to join me in the past couple of days.  Pop over and see the lovely things they have to offer on their Blogs.  
Myra left a comment about my Tablet saying her mum used to make it along with pink & white Coconut Ice.  That`s one thing I have never managed to master.  Our mum used to make it, it was so yummy!!!  Can still feel the coconut sticking in my teeth.  For all you ladies worried about how fattening Tablet is ..... make it try it and share it out.  Nowhere on the recipe does it say you have to eat it ALL yourself.  Some weeks ago  Jules from posted a Christmas card on her wonderful must take a look there.  It reminded me I had the Penny Black stamp she used.  I bought it in the States a few years ago, I only made a few cards with it.  I found it a bit big, used it on DL cards (long ways)  rather than up and down.  Well the stamp has been found and used today.  When Jules used it she split the scene, she`s one clever lady that Jules.    I have done the same and made little cards.  This is one I will use for Batch Cards it is such a nice little scene  ...  well I think so anyway.  Here are my little cards:-

Here is the actual stamp

 I cut the 4 x 4 cards from A3 sheet PMD hammered card

I am going to take another leaf out of Jules book and make the envelopes using the Memory Keepers Envelope Maker I bought at the weekend

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  17. Morning Patricia

    Pleased I managed to give you a little inspiration .. .. .. I thought the stamp a bit large when Mr Postie delivered it, which meant it didn't get much use the first year .. .. but this year it has come into its own and I am loving using it.

    Your cards are lovely. Love your background.

    Thank you for the shout out .. .. you made me blush.

    Hope you get on OK with your envelope maker. It does more than envelopes which is why I bought it. Check out here for some ideas when you get chance .. .. so many ideas to try when time allows!!

    Have a great day Patricia.

    Love Jules xx

  18. Morning Patricia,
    Lovely little cards, just right for batch making. Please let us know how you get on with the envelope maker.

  19. Gorgeous, I love my envelope maker, it really is a must have!!!!

    The Journey is the Start

  21. Afternoon Patricia, What a fantastic idea, and loving the backing paper too.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  22. Totally agree with your comment about Jules' talent. I saw her pretty card that inspired you. Love the way you've split the stamp design and created multiple cards too. Each looks very dramatic with the way you've colored in the scene, and that background plaid is so perfect for the woodland scene too. The black mat really snaps that picture right out to the eye. Now I'm off to find out what I missed about the Tablet! I learn so much from all the international blogs! Yummies. TFS & Hugs (your courgette fritters sound delish too. Had to look up that word! We call it zucchini.)

  23. What a lovely little scene this is Patricia, love the delicate, soft colours, these are absolutely perfect! Hugs, Ira xox

  28. Hi Patricia, what a magic idea splitting the stamps, very clever. Loving the cards too, great colour combo.
    Back to tablet, you have to give it away very quickly as once you start to eat it you just can't stop. Or is that just me? Whoops!

    Enjoy your weekend, hugs Erika. x

  29. What clever way to create your designs and love the color combination.

    Hugs Diane

  30. Such a great idea to make twice as many cards this way Patricia. They are lovely and it's great to know you refound that stamp. Jenny x
