It is that time again.....Christmas card season + JAI 95

Afternoon stampers,

Well it is almost the silly season again, so for us crafters that means making a start on our Christmas Card list and also handmade Christmas gifts.
Well i have made a start on my Christmas cards, and will be making a start on the gifts soon.

This week over at Just Add Ink they have a great challenge to make us all think out side of the box, which suits perfectly with what i wanted to do
Here is their challenge

JAI 95 - Bah Humbug!

We've been seeing lots of Christmassy entries lately and we thought we would go BAH HUMBUG! lol
This week's challenge is to make a Christmas project but with NO Christmas paper, NO Christmas images (Christmas sentiment allowed) and definitely NO chocolate .. oh, okay scrap that ... you can give us chocolate!  

This card was created using a Tea bag fold star, another version of this fold can be found in my previous post
This is one that i saw a while ago and had to give it a go, i do not know who's design it is, so please let me know if you know who did it so i can give them credit. 
this is another clean and simple one (minus black mark, thanks to my work desk), i have made up many of these in different colours and using a different stamp from the same set, i am giving some to my mum, so she can send them out to her friends

Well as i have been away from my desk for a few days, i had better get back to the growing paper pile.


  1. LOVE your tea bag fold star Sharna. Simply stunning! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. The tea bag fold is a great idea for your gorgeous star. Thanks for playing along at JAI.

  3. Your tea bag fold makes a great star and I also like how you have used a flourish to give the impression of a cracker going "pop" when pulled apart. Thanks for taking part in our 'Bah Humbug' challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. What fabulous collection Sharna, your teabag fold star is gorgeous and the Bon Bon idea is great too!
    Thanks for playing along in the Bah Humbug challenge at Just Add Ink.

  5. The teabag fold star is fantastic - what a great idea. I also thought the bon bon was great too. Thanks for playing along at JAI this week.

  6. Thanks for popping by to say hi, Sharna! Like you ... blog hopping has not been happening much for me! I am so looking forward to "after Christmas"! (grin) Hugs xx
