Everythings Hunkydory!

Well, if you believe that you'll believe anything!! But life is good at Pinnacles so as they say, make cards while the sun shines.. oohh where are these random babblings coming from.. I'm thinking I may still be recovering from Saturday's class.. A workshop full of crafters joined us for our Art Deco class. It was great to see, and hear that they all had fun and enjoyed themselves.. They all, well, nearly all, even managed to complete their projects So well done ladies. See you all again soon...
Today I thought I'd share with you some simple Christmas Card ideas.. I know I keep mentioning the dreaded C word but it is nearly September and the clock is ticking. Don't come running to me in November when everything is sold out... and I have taken all of our samples off the shelves to use for my Christmas cards....;)
Joanne has been buying some truly amazing products for the past 6 Years and this Christmas season is no exception.
This card stock from Hunkydory is call Twilight and is now available in the shop. I have teamed it up with some new diamante adhesive letters we also now have in, for a simple but stunning effect on these cards. This moonlight background would also be fantastic for Halloween cards or layouts.
This card stock, also from Hunkydory and called Frosted Swirls, has been soooo much fun to play with.. Again I have teamed it up with the diamante adhesive letters..
On this one I have added some Decoupage also from Hunkydory. It has been placed on a background of glossy card which has firstly been coloured with Pitch Black Alcohol Inks, literally just covered in one application. I then passed the piece of card through the Cuttlebug using a die from the Wedding Set No2 from Sizzix.
The border has been punched from Martha Stewart Embossed Snowflake, a little bit of Stickles on the Poinsettia and you're done...
And just one more, again using products from Hunkydory...
Hope you have a hunkydory! Bank Holiday Weekend and thanks for checking us out..


  1. Andy, thank you for the ideas for the Twilight card - bought some cos I liked it (as you do) and have sat looking at it all week LOL

    Not sure how I managed to miss the Frosted swirls card though...perhaps there were other goodies in store that distracted me.

    Lovely cards are usual and some super ideas for me to paly around with - thank you.

    Toni :o)

  2. Hi all. Hope you had a good weekend. Love all the cards on your blog. Saw most in the shop when I came last week. Still haven't used all I bought and must sort out all stash of Christmas bits so I can add more. See you soon. Jackie R

  3. Hi Andy & Jo
