Card with Christmas bauble

I have bought a lot of Christmas dies throughout the years, so this year I am trying to use as many different ones as I can. This is another example of that:
For this card I have used papers from Galeria Papieru from their "The Cricket on the Hearth" collection. I also used red and green cardstock. Dies are from Spellbinders - Matting basics 6x6, Eve from Sue Wilsons festive collection, the wreath is from Sara Davies Signature collection and the bauble is from Dixi Craft. Flowers and halfpearls are from my stash.

Christmas card with Santa

I have made another Christmas card this and this time Santa is starring on the card:
I have used red, green and shiny silver cardstock and the paper with trees as well as the Santa image are from Kaisercrafts "Silent Night Collection". I have used dies from Spellbinders - Matting Basics 6x6 and Elegant Ovals, Sue Wilsons Festive Collection and the tree is from Dixi Craft. I dressed it up with a few halfpearls and a sticker which says Merry Christmas in Danish.

Christmas baking

It is time to start baking the Christmas cookies so here is William working on making the dough for "pebernødder".
Besides "pebernødder" we are going to make "brunkager" and "vaniljekranse" and when we get a little closer to Christmas we are gonna make the sweets we usually have. They have to be made last, because once they are made, they have a tendency to disappear very fast ;-).

Snowflake Christmas card

This is also a very quick card to make:
I used some shiny silver cardstock and some speciality paper from my stash which had silver stars on it, it has been in my stash for so many years, that I have no idea where I bought it, and I used Spellbinders Matting Basics 6x6 for the squares. For the snowflake I used the Winter Snowflake from Tonic Studios. I used some parchment paper and Marianne Design COL1398 for the banner and the phrase is a sticker.

Wedding anniversary card

My husband and I just celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary on Dec. 6th. Amazing how times fly. I made him this card which could easily be used as a Valentine's Day card as well:
I only used regular cardstock for this card, no designer papers. I used dies from Marianne Design (the bear) and Sue Wilson (the hearts). I don't know which brand the stamp is from.

We celebrated the day by going to the movies just the 2 of us, where we saw "A star is born". I am not a fan of Lady Gaga, but I think she did really well with the acting in this movie and there is a lot of good music in it.

Blue birthday card

Rebecca was invited to two of her class mates birthday party and so I made two identical cards for her to bring. Apparantly blue is the "in"-color when you reach 9, I also remember that from my oldest daughter, so different shades of blue plus white cardstock is what I used for these 2 cards, and since they are identical, I'll just show one:
For this card I used almost all the dies from the "Fancy Nesting Circles" from Card Making Magic. I also used the Spellbinders Matting Basics 6x6 and Marianne Design COL1347 (number) and I decorated it with some halfpearls from my stash.
