Last Xmas Cards (I hope!!)

Just finished the 4 last christmas cards for this year. Hopefully there won't be any more as I am all christmassed out now. Would you believe it is my day off work today so asked my hubby and daughter to get the christmas tree out of the loft for me last night so I could put it up today. I have just got all the bits out and the middle part of the tree is missing!!!. It looks so funny, all the bottom is there and the top piece but it is bare in the middle. There is no way I am going in the loft so it will have to wait again until they get in from school and work.

Only 2 cards this weekend

I have only made 2 cards this weekend. One for my son's girlfriend Clare and one for her mum and dad. Stewart came home from Uni this weekend and Clare stayed over last night. They were on the guest list of a new club in Manchester so guess who was the taxi driver, yep me.... It didn't start until 10 o'clock, I am usually in bed by then, or at least in my jammies. I heard them come in at 3 this morning and they finally surfaced around 1pm. Chris has just set off to take them back to Liverpool so should be back around 9 o'clock. I am also entering these cards into the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge which is to use Embossing, Heat or Dry. The first card is using the Cuttlebug 3 x 3 combo Ice Crystal embossing folder and the second uses Cuttlebug embossing folder swiss dots.

Xmas cards

I spent an enjoyable afternoon making xmas cards. I don't know if it was the snow outside but I was really in the mood today. Here are some of the cards I made.

Freddy's Birthday

It is my brother-in-law's birthday today. I hate doing man cards, I can never think of what to do. I received this image in a swap from another site, coloured it with my new Promarkers. The sentiment is off Greeting Card Factory, inside the card it reads 'and that's no bull'. I have gone around the outside of the red paper with a black marker. Why waste your black card when you don't have to.
