Christmas mood!

Today's card is another Christmas card for the box.I seem to be enjoying making them at the moment! Last year they felt like such a chore,perhaps its because I am making them slowly throughout the year,less pressure lol. The sketch is from the "Just Christmas & Birthdays" challenge blog, I just simplified the sketch a bit. I am really enjoying simpler card layouts at the moment. This challene blog is also helping me to stay motivated with the Christmas cards! Recipe:
  • Wrapping paper
  • Daisy & Dandelion free stamp coloured with promarkers
  • Snowtex
  • Anita's Christmas ribbon
  • Peel off stars
  • Brad & charm from stash

I have been avoiding craft day today on QVC . I always end up ordering stuff I don't really need if I watch it too much. Instead I went online this morning and looked through all the days products,and selected what I do need. I have ordered a couple as a pay day treat!

The Prima flower kit(as it was such good value), also couldn't resist the Coredinations black magic card pack. I think this card looks fab when embossed & sanded with CB embossing folders.

Hope to get out in the craft shed tonight as I am working tomorrow night, can't complain its my last shift before I get 3 weeks off,yipee!!!!!
