Dufex stickers used!!

Hurrah! I have tons of these stickers that I bought years ago when I first started crafting & was attracted to anything shiny or sparkly. I have been challenging myself to use up old stash & leftovers/snippets - conscience tweaked partly by my growing mountain of stash & partly by the amazing work of the playmates in Pixies Snippets challenge.

Anyhoo.....it was proper wintry weather here yesterday, so I carted my snippets box, ribbons & some card stock downstairs & spent a happy afternoon playing in front of the tv while hubby sorted out his music collection   And these are the 3 so far....


The toppers are Dufex stickers (engraved metallic images) layered on mirror card & card stock. The background papers are all from my snippets box - the red one has big glitter polka dots and has been languishing in the box for many years, waiting for a chance to shine lol! Even the ribbons are from my scraps bag - the gold & green one rescued from a box of chocs :-)

Linking these to pixies playground and off to sort the washing while its not raining!

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Three beautiful Christmas cards Debs! I still have a few Dufex toppers and they always do look very festive and rather 'glam'. Sounds like a fun afternoon you had there - and the weather yesterday was perfect for it too!

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Sounds like you and Hubby had a productive afternoon yesterday. Well done. I think your cards are prettier than the record collection though!
    We have had 4 seasons here so I don't chance your washing drying much if you are having the same weather!
    Happy Monday.
