Christmas in March

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your weekend going? We visited our parents yesterday and dropped off Mother's Day presents. Next weekend is planned for veil shopping so there will be no time to visit them. Everyone is being very understanding about our time constraints at the moment. On a positive note I have finished making the flowers for the table decorations and we have solved the problem of attaching them to the glass contaniers. So lots of progress there.

I have been trying to get ahead with my Design Team makes and for one of them I needed to make a Christmas card. While all the stuff was out I made another two cards. I now have  10 Christmas cards  which is not bad considering all the other things I am making.

This was quite a simple card to make in fact I made two. The background came from an old issue of Making Cards Magazine. 

I cut the Deer Family die set from Brown card. I do love this die set I go back to it again and again it was a very good investment. All the dies I used are ones designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. 

I do like how the mum and baby face the dad. 

I cut this Merry Christmas die from glitter card. 

A nice quick but rather effective card. I think I have some more of these backgrounds I might make some more. 

Happy Crafting
