Christmas crackers

I've been making these for the last few weeks and finally finished 10!  The basic crackers are pinflair and the embellishments made from spellbinders and beads I had in my stash

new job card

Update - I've redone the card after getting some good advice so here it is

I spent the best part of today playing with the MCS Important Date cd.  There are some fantastic papers and images and I had the idea to make a masculine card first.  I thought the basic card was a little unbalanced so I spent half an hour or more failing to find my 'coathanger' paperclips to make an embellishment before resorting to cutting out the spellbinder borders.  I was still not happy as at this point the message was not in the right place so I moved that.  I think it's still unbalanced!  As I went to photograph it I discovered that despite several checks I've stuck everything on the wrong way round and the card opens from the bottom!  Still I am posting it here as a record and hoping to get a few constructive comments on how to make the next one better.

Christmas cards posted

I've just posted a selection of Christmas cards in the section on the right.  We've been working on some projects suitable for Guides to do and have come up with the holly wreath made up from leaves punched from various green papers, some of them embossed.  Apologies for the slightly blurred image, there is a new lense on the camera and I don't think I'm used to it yet.
