A Day to Catch My Breath

Hi Crafters,
I've been such a bad Blogger lately, only popping on here to comment periodically. I know everyone is busy this time of year but for some reason, - maybe lack of organisation, or just trying to cram too much in to the time I have - I have been chasing around like a mad thing and not getting anywhere fast. I have been making lots of cards but some I am unable to share with you for various reasons but today I have two quick little card makes inspired by that fabulous place full of ideas - Pinterest.


I made 40 of these which were sent out to family and friends and some for my stall. They feature the Mosaic punch from Stampin' Up along with the matching stamp set and some other stamps from my collection. I also mixed and matched the colours on some alternating the red and the green baubles etc. just to keep my own sanity whilst batch making, lol.
Challenges:
Brown Sugar - #124 Red, White and Green
Sister Act - #87 Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - #60 Anything Goes
Come and Get It - Merry Christmas
Crafty Card Makers and More - #129 Christmas
TTCRD - Anything Goes
 
Thanks for joining me here today and I will see you tomorrow for my early Christmas Card Club post.

Wow, 40!! That's more than I will be making I think.
It's a gorgeous design though in both colours! The touch of bling is just lovely :-)

I am totally in the same boat of feeling like there is way more for me to do than I have time for and have also been a bit sporadic on commenting. That's life!

Big hugs, Kat x
