I have found out there is a stockist of WPlus9 in the UK tho, although they obviously don't get them straight away and patience was never a virtue of mine but they have a pretty ace selection – in fact I want to buy it all!! Visit http://www.makethedayspecial.co.uk/ to see for yourself…

Hello internet, its been a while…
Just in case you were wondering, I haven’t been completely idle these last few months, just spending more time away from my desk than at it. But I have been creating, mostly Christmas cards, which I’ll share with you in the coming weeks.
It seems deer are a big trend again this year, from furnishings to wrappings and, of course, paper crafting. There are a fair few stamps and dies out there featuring these cute/majestic creatures. I created this stag head in Silhouette studio:
And teamed it with a bit of wood grain digi paper which I recoloured in Photoshop and found that the frame from my bargain £2 stamp set from the NEC was just the right size!
I also used the negative space:
Running the panel through an embossing folder and again pairing it up with the wood grain paper. I think an argument could be put forward for these to be quite masculine cards but I would love to receive them too, so… maybe that says more about me?

|I think I got a little carried away with the falling backgrounds, I ended up cutting quite a few! I do like the colour combination on this tho! I think I need more practice with the blending but I still think its fairly realistic.|
I tried to mimic the sky colours with the cardstock skyline and I’m pleased with how that came out too:
This other one was intended to be snow, rather than stars, but if I do it again, I’ll make the dots a lot smaller!

|Before I went the circle route, I tried cutting a Robocop panel with “falling stars”… it is SO hard to make something look random!! |
The Memory Box village die got a lot of use during this particular week, mainly cos I convinced my mom to buy some Marianne Christmas Village dies to make her cards with this year… so naturally I had to have a play with them, right? Is this a church or a schoolhouse? Not really sure - u'll see it again tho!
Again no sentiment – its too early!

I came across this lovely design through the power of Pinterest and decided to use it to shape the vague idea floating around my head. The stars (and circle) were cut by Robocop and then inked the panel with Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass distress ink. I made this quite a few weeks ago and couldn't bring myself to put a festive sentiment on it but I think it will end up that way… not long now!
