SOS - #5 - Tools of the Trade

Hi All!

Well I have finally managed to sit down and do a little crafting!

The latest challenge over at Shopping our Stash was to use tools that we just had to have - but don't seem to use that often! So I decided to team this with my usual Festive Friday posts which seem to be very neglected of late and produced........

For this I had decided to use my Creative Memories Custom Cutting System - Large Circle with my green and blue blades and I also wanted to use my Silent Setter for the eyelets. However after searching high and low for my Silent Setter - I have decided that I must have a box missing as I still can't find my Rollagraph handles or ink cartridges either. So luckily I still had my eyelet setter trio from my pre Silent Setter days - which would easily be 6 years ago now. Check it out below! I now remember why I brought the Silent Setter in the first place.

Whilst I had my Cricut and Doodlecharms cartridge out - I decided to make another Santa and try a card that I saw on Christina's blog - Creations with Christina! I also used my Very Merry Tags Cartridge for the Ho Ho Ho!

With these two cards - my total for the 50 Christmas cards by Dec 1st Challenge over at Stamping for Joy with Shirley-Anne is now 46! Wooo Hooo!
