Ruffles at Christmas

This is one of my favourite stamps. I only had square card blanks in iridescent cream, so Ruffles is in gold, copper and bronze instead of the more traditional Christmas colours. He's also gone ginger. I like him like that.

These cards are for a swap I'm involved with. Aren't they pretty?

They're for this week's Creatalicious Challenge of Christmas and sparkles. As I've used up half a bottle of Stickles on each one I think that qualifies!

I saw this concertina card on a blog and just had to work out how to make my own. Once I'd started, I was hooked. I just love the perfusion of colour!

The first is for the new next-door neighbour at our church. He has single-handedly taken on the church's garden as well as his own, and he keeps it looking quite magnificent - roses are his speciality. I made the card to give to him from the whole congregation. The other is for a cyber-friend who sent me a RAK. I'll be including it in a package of goodies that I've got for her.

These cards are for the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz: cutesy
Creative Card Crew: thankful
Stampavie: anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: photo inspiration
Truly Scrumptious: bingo (flowers, gems, punch/die cuts)
