Christmas cards galore!

Life has been so manic recently that I haven't had the time to spend on my cards as much as I would have liked (which is 24/7!). Not only are we decorating our hallway (which is taking aaaages), I've picked up two new projects at work which means I'm doing well over my contracted hours! Hey ho, I wouldn't do it if I didn't love my job too!

I've steadily been working on my Christmas cards to use up the K&Co Mat Pad and Tag Pad I've had in my stash for ages. I've got about 30 half made up cards now and have finally used up every bit of scrap I could sensibly do! I've made up variations of basically the same format and I managed to complete these ones last night...

I call this lot my 'blue mood' - lol! The other papers are more red, pink and greens so no doubt that's how I'll post those moods too!

I'm quite pleased with them and at least I will have made up nearly enough for all my clients and work colleagues. Last year I was going to make all my xmas cards two weeks before the special day, but I went down with the 'flu and ended up not making any at all! I refused to buy ones though so ended up sending everyone 'sorry I didn't make it' text messages!! Yeah, daft.

In between coats of paint drying this week, I will hopefully have some more to post very soon!
