Lazy Sunday crafting.

Well, that is my plan to have all my jobs done this morning so I can may be get in a bit of crafting time this afternoon.  Did you miss me yesterday?  Sorry I meant to schedule a post on Friday but time got the better of me.  We picked my boy up from school, which took most of the day, so that is him now around for the holidays with a mountain of washing!  Still it's good to have him home.  Mr X box has already had a thrashing whilst I was out at work yesterday. 
I was working early again yesterday and was very busy so by the time I'd shopped, come home and made the tea the five o'clock getting up was rearing it's ugly head, yawn (I've got no staying power!), so a night's veg in front of the TV with my boys was the order of the day.
Up refreshed today and most jobs done now I'm raring to go. 

As you missed a card yesterday I thought I'd show you two today, again more Christmas using the new Spellbinder dies.

Shopping list!
Create a flake 4, Fleur de lis square and Classic square Spellbinders, Creative Impressions stamps, bling and pearlescent card.

Shopping list!
Stamps and card as above with 2012 Holiday tree.

I thought I better just mention as everyone is seeing all these Christmas cards thinking, my goodness this girl is organised for Christmas....I am not.  All these cards are made for either classes or demonstrations and so are left with the shop I visit.  If I make extra they go to my lovely PI rep as samples for when she visits other shops. 
I am a nightmare in making my own cards and it is usually a mad dash a fortnight before Christmas to get them all written and out in time. 
Now doesn't that confession make you feel better!  LOL.

I'm going to sign off now I have another Sugar bowl card to finish off ready for the next challenge and then a wee craft tidy might be the order of the day!
Have a super Sunday.  x

Great cards again Erika. Loving the Christmas inspiration. Pity you don't get to keep them. I think I'm doing quite well with my Christmas cards but I'm probably not as well organised as I think. I more or less made 3 at the crop yesterday and finished them last night. Still to post them though but I have done my ironing, made tea and made shortbread with my new Kenwood. I had such a busy week last week that it's been sitting in it's box since it arrived last Monday.
