The very last

As promised, I'm back with the last 3 xmas cards for this year. I was asked by one of the ladies who come to help me with Willow to make cards for her 2 sons and her nephew. She tells me her boys loved them, they were so chuffed and so was she.

After being so inspired by the easel card that we made at Judy's class at Simply Create at the beginning of December I decided to make some more.

 Images are all Santa's from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers as always. I also added papermania glitterflock to his beard and trim, glamour dust to the snow and sakura clear glaze pen to his belt, boots and Rudolph's nose (you'll see this better in the close up at the bottom)
cardstock is all core'dinations, panels embossed with cuttlebug snowflake folder, patterned paper is Daisy & Dandelion. Ribbon is from Hobbycraft, Martha Stewart and Dovecraft snowflake punches were used with glitter paper. Hobbycrafts adhesive gems. Hero Arts greetings

Here's the close-up...

 So finally, that's the xmas cards all done and dusted and out the door - thank goodness. Lots of people still ended up with bought cards and I'm sorry - but with 3 kids, 2 cats, a dog, a man who is away 2 weeks out of 5, self-employment, a charity to run, well I kinda ran out of time lol

Now I just need to pick up some vouchers for my dad's xmas, take something back to exchange it at Toys R Us, finish the other 5 crackers and I think I'm sorted (fingers crossed) Have been back into my Tesco grocery order umpteen times because I keep remembering things I'll need, and it gets delivered on Wednesday.

Speak to you tomorrow, but be warned - I might not be in the best of humours, its Graham's last day at home.
