On Sunday I decided it was time.
So I took a deep breath, printed out a stack of cards with a Christmas message on the inside and started on our Christmas cards. Yes, I know I've been doing some for design teams, but I hadn't done any of the more "mass produced" type I need for us to send out come December.
Eventually though, you just have to bite the bullet, and even if your hubby gapes open-mouthed when he realises what you're doing, you have to take the plunge.
So here's the first batch of cards for my Christmas box
Dies are Spellbinders Snowflakes set 2
I reckon I can make these fairly quickly as long as I cut all the shapes in all the matching papers/card then sit down and assemble them in batches
Papers MME "Merry Days of Christmas" - I love the more muted shades of this collection.
The Santas are cut from one of the paper designs and mounted on thin card before matting onto another of the papers and some gold card
Trees on the second picture are Cuttlebug dies, the little houses are punched from one of the MME papers. Since taking the photos I've decided that they did need a greeting so I've added some of my home-made rub-on ones now - you can see some of those on the snowflake cards
This morning I've finally got round to taking photos of the lovely handmade cards I received for my birthday the other week so I've popped them onto a slide-show to show them off on here. Wasn't I lucky?
Thanks to everyone who sent one of these fab cards.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you like what you've seen here and will come back again soon
