Last minute cards!

Well Christmas is over for another year, and soon it will be New Year and time to tidy away all the festive decorations.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time with family and friends.  Here it was good to see the family, but with a few hiccups along the way .. .. hopefully all will be sorted out and 2014 will turn out to be a wonderful year for our family.  

I had tidied all my craft stash away then Mum needed a very last minute card to send to a neighbour she hadn't planned on .. .. so out came the festive bit box and here's my last festive card for 2013.  The paper is from Marianne Design and I just inked the edges before sticking down on a cream base card.  I already had the Marianne Design die cut pieces and the text, a Serendipity stamp, stamped out in green ink, so all it needed was the red berries adding and a little double red bow.  I think that with all the detail in the paper it didn't need much else, and besides there wasn't time to fiddle fart about!

These are the Marianne Design dies I used:
holly spray - LR0244
pine cones - LR0286
text mat - LR0180

At the Christmas Card Challenge blog it's anything goes, and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge is raring to go again and asks to see either your first 2014 Christmas card creations, or some that you haven't yet shared from 2013 - mine is the latter!


  1. A lovely festive card Annie, love the holly die. Hugs, Claire x

  2. Your Marianne dies are certainly serving you well & I love your addition of that little red bow.
    Hope 2014 will be a good one for you.
