Traditionally today is the Twelth Day of Christmas or, if you prefer, Twelth Night, which means that by the end of today you should take your Christmas decorations down, that is if you have not already done so - although I know that some people believe that the twelth day was actually yesterday but I have never counted it so. For the last 12 days my good friend Mrs Beez has been sharing her take on the popular Christmas carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. Her designs have been imaginative and very humorous.
Today also sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges and as a little post Christmas treat the theme is 'Anything Goes'.
I decided that as it is almost two weeks since Christmas Day, it was high time I got my thank you cards written, but first I needed to make them. I think my current favourite stamp is the Swallowtail Butterfly stamp from Stampin' Up and I have used that stamp for my cards.
Apart from the white card and blank cards, which are Craftwork Cards, all of the materials I used are by Stampin' Up.
I used textured white card to give the distressing a more interesting look and I made 2 cards of each colour combination. The card and ink colours I used are:
Whilst I am doing that, why don't you pop over to the Crafty Boots Challenges website and take a look at the fabulous creations the rest of the DT have made.
Have a great day.
