Winter Cards for Work

Today is my last of work this year!! I'm definitely ready for a break. I needed some cards for my coworkers and since many of them know I have a little card making hobby I wanted to make some cards for them instead of using store bought ones. But, I waited until last night, so I had to make something quick and easy. I subscribe to a nice UK magazine called Cardmaking & Papercrafts and it's so much fun because they send gifts with their magazines. In October they sent a My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pad of pretty wintery Christmas paper called Snowed In along with two sheets of matching chipboard stickers!! I haven't used any of it so I decided to pull it out and make some cards and here's what I came up with. They're not the most complicated, but they were fun and easy. The issue I got this week had a set cute of clear holiday stamps (I'll show some cards using them soon). 

I also made bread for some of my coworkers and my house smells so good - but unfortunately I need all 8 mini loaves so I can't eat any!!! I'll have to make more this weekend. I've included a picture - I think the loaves looked really pretty this time. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow! What a perfect gift! Your cards are fabulous, each so unique and wonderful.

  2. how awesome the magazine just sends you goodies like that!! when the paper is that gorgeous, there's no need to cover it up... your cards are great. the bread looks so yummy, is it a 'special' kind or flavor? your coworkers will love it, enjoy your break!
