getting there.......




I've made yet another batch of christmas cards tonight-I'm getting to the stage now where I'm wanting to make something else so I'm having to force myself to finish ALL the christmas cards I need before I start on the baby cards for the girls in my NCT group

Just made it in time for the Stamp something challenge of Snow this week

I had bought these packs of Heidi Swapp iron on letters at a craft show ages ago-not bad for the £1.50 I paid but they were reduced from £7.50 a pack! No way were they worth that for the amount you got in them.
I had to layer the O over the other letters to fit this one on the card-but I think it looks quite good that wayThis one is for Di Hickmans sketch this week


I'm trying to use up some of the odd bits I have floating around rather than spending more(says she who's taking MIL to craft central this weekend!)and they all help towards using up the dreaded christmas paper mountain

This was for the Caardvarks challenge this week-to use no patterned paper


yes I got the cuttlebug folder the wrong way round but ts going to a non crafty individual so she'll never know.

Are you bored yet? Last one is using the new cupcake stamp from Dewdropzcrafts



Isn't he cute????
I start maternity leave today-so hopefully I'll have a bit more time to make cards and sew-I may even blog a bit more regularly!
Thanks for stopping by

oooooooh! lovely cards! is it wrong that i love the caardvarks one best?! :)

did you know that we have changed to a flickr gallery system for posting our cards? it's great because you don't have to wait for us to upload for you, and you can get comments from other cardmakers...it is really cool!

the new gallery is here:
