The last cards of the year

Having managed to get everything posted to everyone by the skin of my teeth, I thought I would share the last couple of card batches I made.
I have been playing with a new set of hexagon dies:

The dies are from Sizzix (bought in the sale!) and I cut the blanks from an existing square blank, then cut a mat out of Crafters Companion patterned cardstock.  The snowflake image is by Sue Wilson and I stamped/embossed in silver.  The sentiment is so old I am not sure where it is from, this was also stamped/embossed but this time in lilac.  I am definitely going to make some more of these hexagon cards, they are great fun :-)

These vintage cards were actually done at the October ATDML retreat but I never got around to blogging them:

I made shmooshy distress ink backgrounds, then over-stamped with images from Stampin Up - frame, carollers and Father Christmas - and an old one from Creative Expressions.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and  Happy New Year :-)
