Christmas is Coming....!

I've had a great time today playing around making Christmas cards! I'm flying out to England for 3 weeks at the end of November so need to have all cards and gifts made/ purchased by then, and as tomorrow is the last day of the Hero Arts challenge I figured today was a great day to jump in and get started!

I had lots of fun with my Hero Arts stamps, embossing powders and of course my Distress Inks! I don't think I'll ever get bored of watching the embossing powder melt, or trying out different colour combos with my inks!

Here's what I came up with, which is your favourite?

Oh, and in other news... I started Weight Watchers last week. After all the meds I've been on, and sitting around a lot more, and well okay eating too much (!), I decided as part of my taking time out for me I need to lose weight and get down to a healthy BMI. Anyway, I had my first weight in today and I lost 2.6lb, yey me!! I've decided that I will reward myself with a Copic marker for every pound I lose, that way I won't feel as guilty for buying them, hehe!! I'm going to propose this plan to hubby tonight, I already have my first colours picked out so he really can't say no!! Thinking that I will save up until I have lost 5lb each time and then buy them to save on shipping, or maybe 10.... though don't think I can wait that long!! It's good motivation for me though as I'm determined to lose at least 2.5lb this week so I can place my first order!! No Halloween candy for me then, well maybe just one piece!!

  1. Oh, I really like your cards. I think the ones with the Christmas trees are my favorite, but hard to pick between them! Very Pretty and all so different.
    Great job on the WW! :-) 3kidmama (from 2Peas)

  2. Such great cards!! Love the read, green and gold together.
    Good plan with the Copics ;)

  3. Your cards are beautiful! My favorite is the third one down with the flowers. Good luck on starting Weight Watchers. I'm trying to lose some weight also. I totally love the Copic reward system! What a great way to stay motivated!

  4. All of them are gorgeous! I can't really pick a favorite...but I think the 4th one is so unique and beautiful with the rich colors and embossing! Good luck on the WW! I think it's the BEST weight loss program! Please keep us posted about your progress! xo

  5. I'm so happy that I found your blog.I look at Hero Arts Flickr everyday ! Your cards are elegant and each one so special. I think my favorite is the 2nd one ,but all of them are lovely.
    Keep up the good work in Weight Watchers!
    It sounds like you will do great and have lots of Copic markers to play with.
