Cards for the School Gala

The school where my children went for their primary years has a Gala every November.  My husband donates the use of a Container for storage every year and this year I am donating a pile of my cards for them to sell.  I have been making a few Christmas cards from a Magazine Kitset I bought recently.  There is enough card, embellishments, die cuts, ribbon etc to make 15 cards... so far I've managed 3...

Merry and Bright


Christmas Ornaments.


Reindeer Greetings


I will be taking all the kitset with me this weekend up to the Beach.... we are heading up to Mangawhai on Friday night and our friends will be there on Saturday morning.  I did have stamping at Sandie's house, but I really felt like a break away with hubby and my friends... just chilling out.    So I won't be around for a few days....  I have been busy doing some special stuff ~ more later..... and trying to get ahead again with Mygrafico design work.  Plus back at work full time is more tiring than I thought.... I nearly fell asleep sitting on the couch watching some TV at about 5.30pm this evening...

Take care and hope your weekend is going to be as much fun as mine.

Cheers

Dawn

Dawn, my hubby and I fall asleep almost every night at the very same time. We both get home, have a little chat, lie down on the bed to watch the evening news and nap for about a half an hour - and we haven't even had surgery! Naps are awesome - don't fight it!

Love these wonderfully cheerful cards! So nice that you're making them to donate. Have a fabulous, little getaway and just relax and have fun! Hugs to you! :)
