Old Macdonald....

Morning.

One week to go.... and I still haven't finished the cards, the shopping, iced the Christmas cake, tidied the house etc....

I think there might be a lot of late nights this week.

This is a card a friend at work asked me to make for her nephew who likes tractors and farm animals.

Cut the tractor from a file I bought on Etsy and the balloon which has 2 Today in it was cut from a Docrafts die and then scanned in to SNC so I could cut it the size I needed.

Scooting Along

Morning.

The last Monday in November... have you finished your shopping yet? Nope. Have you made your Christmas cards yet?  Have you finished sharing cards you made months ago? Nope....

This is a birthday card I made for my friend for her daughter. She was getting a scooter for her birthday so I used Wryn on roller skates (but removed her skates) and cut out a silver glittery scooter on the SNC!

A Million Thank You's

Well, two! 

A couple of thank you cards that I made for Craig to give the teachers he was helping when he did his work experience back in August. 

If I'm honest I'm not hugely fussed about either of the cards but Craig liked them and as they were for a boy to give I didn't want to go over the top with embellishments.




Thanks for dropping by today.

Fancy a Trip to Ikea?

Morning.

At last, something a little more seasonal! A Christmas card. I bought this washi tape in Ikea recently and thought it would look good on a Christmas card. It was quick, it was easy. This might become one of my Christmas cards!

Monday Pondering

Morning.

The trouble with "spring cleaning" your folder of cards is that none are very seasonal! I wish I could say we were nearly done but sadly we're not. 

This is another of the work birthday cards using Digi Stamp Boutique's Harry and Beer.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is very special because it's our birthday! We're 7 years old :)  so in recognition of that our theme is 

Happy Birthday!!

Our sponsor this week are Crafts and Me.

Do you ever get cards that you don't want to give away? This is one such card. It was an order for one of my bosses to give her sister but I just love it so much! (I did hand it over don't worry)

Morning.

It's Friday and time for the happy Friday dance.

A birthday card today for one of the guys from work. I think if I was doing this again I'd stamp the letters on lighter card but no matter.

Move Along. Nothing to See.

Morning.

Here we are, nearly at the end of November. Well, we're over halfway through, it's a hop, skip and a jump to Christmas and not a Christmas card has been made or a Christmas present bought. I'm feeling I should maybe do something about that. Soon. Maybe.

But only after a lie down in a darkened room. Yep. It's *that* colour. This is the birthday card I made for my friend's daughter back in August.  Enough said really.
