Finally some Christmas cards!

Gee I was really struggling time wise this year - somebody please remind me to start them in August next year!!! So this year's aren't very elaborate :-( I did start some colouring on a few but they aren't going to make it. The first card I really like - its a shameless case of another demonstrator, well I used the same stamps and colours, mine is a little simpler - I loved the blushing bride and the soft suede together. This is one of the sets that is on special for December too...
Next I decided that it would be a nice gesture to give cards out to our regular customers at the cafe (again, start in August). The cafe is called Thirty Eight, hence the number on the bauble. To save a little time I used the whisper white note cards and envelopes. I gave one of these out on Friday to a dear elderly lady who comes in every Friday and she couldn't believe I had made it and told me I should do it as a business *g* I bought decorations for the cafe in these colours so it all coordinates.

Then in a mild state of panic tonight when I realised I needed about 45 cards to send out personally and I only had 18 I quickly whipped these up on the same lines as th
e cafe ones - I did 20 in around an hour! I might make some more up in brown shades just to annoy my stamp club ladies lol!
Then I needed to make a couple of tags to go in the mail to put on presents for my nieces and nephew that have been bought by my sister on my behalf. I stamped the image and then swiped over it with a versamark pad and then sprinkled it with the new irridescent ice embossing powder that's in the summer mini catalogue and heated it.

Well wishing you all a happy Christmas and peaceful new year. I am off to Chadstone tomorrow to finish off the last of my shopping and then home to write all those cards out.......
