Morning all, how are you all?
How are your Christmas plans coming along?
I have failed miserably on the card front with only makes for immediate family, M & S are providing the rest, slap wrists!
I would usually beat myself up about this but you know what, why bother?
There is enough pressure at this time of year to create the perfect Christmas without worrying about what really isn't that important. In my defence the new printer I got doesn't do what I want it to do so went back. I am therefore resigned to hand writing everything until another new one arrives. I usually print my news on the inside of my cards together with up to date photos...guess that won't be happening.
How was your weekend?
A busy day for me in M & S Saturday....anyone would think there was a special celebration coming up soon!
I don't mind being busy at all, the day passes so quickly and before you know it it's time to go home.
Sunday was a lazy day for me as I wasn't feeling the best, guess that's the shock of working more hours! Part-timers.....just can't take the pace!
I seem to be better today so lots to catch up on, for a start I've still got all my cards to sort and my Christmas cake to make. Better soak my fruit today so I can make the cake later this week.
I'm in work 5 days this week too so better get cracking with all things at home, whilst I do that I thought I'd leave you with one of the cards I made at the Christmas crop.
A none traditional coloured CAS Christmas card for you. I love black and cream, such a classic combination. The tree stamp is by Clarity stamps and the sentiment by Waltzing Mouse, the trees have been stamped in black and then embossed with iridescent powder, you can't see the sparkle with my photography, sorry. The edging is a EK Success punch called plaid.
I must mention this all the time but I really am enjoying the less is more approach to card making just now, it's flat for posting too, that's got to be good for Christmas, no?!
Anyway I better go and crack the stick, kitchen decorating, ironing, housework etc....today is going to be a fun day!
I hope you have a super week and more from me later tomorrow. x
