Tiny Treats Christmas Cards

Hello again! What a BEAUTIFUL start to Spring it is in New Zealand! I admit yesterday was miserable weather BUT today's sunshine totally wiped it off my memories! So today shall be first day of Spring for me!

However, we did get an early start to the morning today with a 4.9 magnitude aftershock wake-up call at 3.30am! I rarely wake up to anything below magnitude 5 these days (we've had a few thousand aftershocks and you kind of get used to them pretty quickly), but this morning was a good going shake. I vividly recall waking up from a REALLY random dream about... cat food. LMAO.

Anyway, today I've finally done what I've been planning for a long time - to use my Tiny Treats sets! And even better, to colour them in with my good ol' colouring pencils (then I get another entry into Make It Monday challenge now, don't I? lol)

And yup, it's a whole set of Christmas cards this time!

(I suggest you click on the picture and see it in large size)

I just love these cute wee sets. They are the cutest wee images EVER and I wish PTI made them mega-sized soon! Preferably with next release! Would love to see my Santa and reindeer BIG!


I made them small (because it makes the cards even cuter!) - but I didn't think twice about size and the the dimensions are 4.25" x 4.25" (easy to measure out using my ScorBuddy), which means there is no standard envelope that will fit it perfectly. DOH! PTI envelopes come in 4" x 4" so next time... I will make them a tad smaller lol

By the way, I can't believe that stamping has made me work in INCHES! I personally can't stand the imperial system that America uses, but PTI has certainly has done its job well if I'm now working all my cards using imperial measurements!!! I even bought my ScorBuddy in imperial measurements D:

I did stamp over with A Little Argyle stamp in the background, but the camera refused to pick it up. You may be able to see a hint of it in full size.

Thanks for popping by again!

These are so sweet. It's one of my favourite sets and you've done such a great job. I love the combination of red and Kraft along with the rustic look from the twine.
