Catching Up With DCM!!!

I have managed to catch up with three of the 'dares' I missed and I have thoroughly enjoyed doing all of them. It made quite a change to do something I wanted to do and not something I had to.
So here we go.................... Piles of Presents
I hand cut a pile of presents from blue glitter card and then cut the lids again and attached them with foam pads.
I added hand drawn swirls and punched glitter snowflakes, wrapped it with silver ribbon and added a tag with the bow.
Snowmen and Snowflakes
Making this card did me a huge favour as I have used up nearly a whole sheet of silver snowflake peeloffs on it and as I am trying to banish everything but peeloff lines from my craft room I was very pleased with that.
The snowman is a Hug Club image which I have cut and layered with foam pads.

.....And Cut
Hand cut tag and holly leaves.
The tag is stamped with a Hero Arts stamp and the holly leaves are stamped and embossed using a Creative Expressions Christmas tree stamp which is made up of dots.
Paper is Hot Off The Press.

Crikey......I need a lie down after that!!! I still have a few to go but they will be a bit slower coming as I have some jobs to do now and then I am at the shop every day next week on my own and I need to get stuff ready for the three classes I will be doing.

Best get cracking on that as DD has just gone out to buy the new Harry Potter to watch tonight.

Bye for now
