The kids break up on Friday for the holidays, and thankfully I've not got much left to do/buy/organise/wrap etc, just need to have the big clean and keep the washing up to date and hopefully we're all set.
I'd like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that I won't be sending Christmas Cards this year, all the ones I've made are pretty much on display at The Papeterie, and I've been so busy with other work that I haven't had any time to make some. I also feel it would be a bit of a cop out if I sent shop-bought cards, so this year I've decided to make a donation in lieu to Mrs Murray's Cat & Dog Home in Aberdeen.
But I did have a couple of commissions to make for one of the other mums at school, giving you a wee bloggy wave Lindsay :)
She wanted me to make cards for her 2 best friends and their families, so here's the first one...
The tag is removable (see bottom photo), here's a better pic to show all the glamour dust...
