Addicted to vampires!

Morning! Well I'm very surprised that last night I didn't dream of vampires! Is anyone watching True Blood? Scary but as with all HBO series, great TV!! (Plus Stephen Moyer is veeery sexy!)

I watched last week's episode that I'd missed on the iPlayer then saw last night's eposide, and then spent an hour reading Twilight.... I know, I know, I'm way behind! Everybody else seems to have read the whole series and I'm only on the first one!

I'm totally addicted to it though and thought I could finish it last night but my eyelids had a different idea (isn't that annoying... needing to sleep lol!) So today I'm hoping to finish it then straight on to New Moon, yay!! I'd love to hear if you're into either series too!!

Onto cards.....another batch of Christmas numbers today using one of my favourite festive colour combos - gold and cream.

A nice, simple easy that's easy for mass producing! The tree (from Scandinavian Season) was embossed with gold E.P:


Stamps - Scandinavian Season (SU)
Card - Very Vanilla (SU)/Gold (PTI)
Ink - Versamark
Other - Gold Embossing Powder/Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder/ribbon/gold pearl/oval Nestabilities

Speaking of Christmas, this week the challenge we set on A Passion for Papertrey was also Christmas themed. Here's my sample:

All details of the card and the challenge are on the A Passion for Papertrey blog.

Thanks for visiting, I need to do some work but I want to get back to my fabulous vampires!!!

Hi Kate,

These are class in a glass - so stylish and Father Christmas is also looking very smart and gorgeous in kraft ;D

Glad you're enjoying your vamp fest - happy nibbling ;D

OMG You'll be in love with Edward/Jacob by the end believe me. I can't wait to go and see New Moon in the cinema later this month!

Great cards by the way.

Hi Kate,

loved both cards. The cream and gold are so elegant and the santa really pops on the second. That lace edging is gorgeous.

I have only just borrowed Twilight to read for the first time.

Enjoy the rest of your read.

Such pretty cards Kate - do you play Christmas music while you're making these? You certainly seem to have the holiday spirit going on over there! I'm picturing little puffs of angeldust, snowflurries and sugarplums popping out of your chimney, a la Sleeping Beauty when the fairies were making their magic :)

Sara said...

Great cards but I especially love the Scandinavian Season one. Hope you don't mind if I CASE it. It's gorgeous! I also loved True Blood - got to see it first on Sky. Bit racy as HBO push the envelope a bit and a great series. Enjoy!
