Last Minute Christmas Cards

Hi Bloggers

How are your Christmas preparations getting on? It really isn't long now and there is so much to do. This is not helped by your husband saying I need 12 Christmas cards for people at work. So that was my Sunday afternoon sorted out for me. We could have bought cards but that feels like cheating.


I made one of these from a recycled card and the top of a chocolate box. All the gold card I used was retrieved from my scrap box. It did take a while to find enough scraps of a reasonable size. I would like to enter this card for Pixie's Snippets Playground Number 155.


I made 9 of these the image was from one of the Kanban  sheets I won recently. The paper was in my stash and the snowflakes were punched  from the waste from the inserts. 

I really didn't have long so they had to be quick cards and suitable for a man to send. Sorry this is just a quick post today. I am struggling to keep up with the blogging while being so busy at home I know that you understand.

 I couldn't be too cross with him as these were waiting for me when I got in from a work meal on Friday. Bless him.


I hope the rest of the week is good to you. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
