My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

3 June 2011

Anyone For Presents?

Evening everyone - what a gorgeous day it's been - hoping it stays like this for the weekend!  Back to work on Monday, have had a lovely week off, but my it's flown by.  Need to prepare myself for a whole 7.5 weeks term until we break up for the Summer hols. LOL.

It's been nice having Mark at home with me this week, but I'm sure he will feel strange when I go back on Monday.  He is actively looking for work, so hopefully something will come up soon.  I've prepared a list of outstanding jobs on the house though, which should keep him busy for a bit!

Right, haven't been in the craft room much and what time I have had in there is being spent on samples for my Sister's wedding stationery, which is keeping me busy, but have managed to make the odd few cards.

Card Ingredients:

Papers from Stash
Penny Back Stamp
PM Gems
Nesties Using Sizzix Dots Embossing Folder
Cardstock from Stash
Iced Stickles

I would like to enter this set of cards into the following challenges:

Bling It On 4 Embossing
CCAYR June Anything Goes
