I've been busy...

Can't believe it's been a week since I last posted.... but I have been busy.  I took my Christmas cards to work on Friday and sold 10 cards... which meant I was short again... so decided I need to do some mass production.

My first set was three similar cards that I did for a swap on Flickr.  Each was similar but slightly different.



I used a die and stamp set I got with a magazine... I just love my freebies!

My next set was again with the same freebies - a gorgeous wreath of holly leaves which I embossed in Platinum powder and some added ribbon.  I did 7 of these changing up the ribbons.

Simple but elegant and really quick to make.

And finally a set of tags my hubby requested me to make for him


Using a real mixture of stamps.  Tags are cut with a CAS-ual Fridays die.

I also managed to get most of my overseas cards addressed and off to the post.  Now I have a few more cards to make as I still have the family cards to send but only three left!  So more mass production need this weekend.

Hope you are not getting too stressed with Christmas preparation.  I'm getting excited as my Mum and Dad arrive on the 19th for a month and on the 20th my daughter and her hubby arrive for a 2 week stay... so full house at our place.  Going to be fun.

Always good to sell some cards, then you can buy more stuff! Great selection and I like how you've changed them up a bit. Love your new freebies. I might have to seek some out.
