Christmas in July - CCT

I've been a bit of a manic Crafter these past few weeks, making up samples for my latest Crafty Templates sets but it's not stopped me wanting to have a play for me and because last year I was still making Christmas cards on Christmas eve I figured it could be wise to get just a few cards done a bit earlier this year and stock them up. I do hate {a bit} the idea of making festive cards in summer but I guess these last few weeks it's felt more like winter weather wise so it's not so bad! lolSo anyway this is the card I came up with for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge! I'm making a start on my new Christmas templates this week so I decieded to revisit some of the ones I made last year for some inspiration. This one is the 'Cutesy Reindeer' template {you can get him in the complete animal set or the Christmas 07 set here if you want him}.
I made up the shaped card with the template and then printed the head bit on to glitter card and coloured it in with Galaxy markers. The body bit I decorated with Doodlebug paper and core-dinations card sanded and then embossed with the cuttlebug. The little message bit is Cuttlebug diecuts too just layered and stamped then with a handwritten message to finish.

The Great Outdoors

So here's my card for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge........

With the theme being the great outdoors I had to use bits from my 'natureific' quirky kit! I also used a cuttlebug folder, the small scallop with the deer was cut with a nestability die and then I used just a bit of ink and a GoGo Greetings stamp. Everything else is straight out of the kit. The deer paper is one of the new October Afternoon ones (that's in the kit) and it's defo my new favourite paper. The tree stamp is a lino block stamp I cut myself. I made one for each of the kits too!
