Finally - a batch of xmas cards!

Well, I finally got around to making a batch of xmas cards the other night and another wee batch tonight. We're trying to get the kids into a decent bedtime routine so that G and I actually get some time to ourselves. So this evening G plonked himself in front of the X-box and I took my cuttlebug and supplies through to the coffee table so at least we were both in the same room.

I'm keeping the xmas cards simple and varying each one slightly but sticking to the same overall theme. I used simple plain white card blanks, Anita's gold and silver xmas greeting peel-offs, various shades of pearlescent, mirror and mottled card stock, silver vellum, and a couple of sizzix sizzlits snowflake dies and the ice crystal cuttlebug cut and emboss set.

My good friend Pamela was over this morning for a gossip and a pail of tea, so I spent most of the morning having a shottie of baby Emma - she just gets cuter every time I see her. Pamela fed her and put her down for a wee nap in Faith's old cot, until......... there was an almighty scream and we discovered, when we ran through, that Faith obviously took exception to this and lobbed her potty into the cot at poor wee Emma. Thankfully she hasn't been permanently disfigured, poor wee soul. To stop Faith getting all territorial again, I've dismantled the cot and will be taking it down to the recycling centre tomorrow.

My other good friend Mar has just finished her first day at work, its great to hear her so enthusiastic and her new job sounds very interesting and rewarding. I also noticed on her blog tonight that I've won her PIF, so that will be my job for tomorrow - watch this space...
