re-stuck christmas cards

Is busy Re-Stucking Christmas cards (still have a bag full), went out for a walk with the beasts on Sunday and found a worthy cause to donate some cards to - they had a card stand in the cafe, none handmade which surprised me - they all looked like the dregs from the bottom of the card box, unloved and not wanted ;(

a few -
backing paper from Humphrey's Corner, loved how the blue and silver came together.

all recycled apart from this little chap who couldn't wait for his photo being taken and snuck in the line at the last minute!

bag lady

this is card is a 6x6, roughly - I got guillotine happy at one point. Bckground paper, pink paper, striped paper and handbag embellishment are all from 'The Loving Life' collection. Wished I'd pink-inked the edges of the background paper before sticking it down. Everything else craft stash.

After 22 days we now have a new phone line installed. YaY

Normal service can be resumed!!

a birthday card I made, using test stamping off cuts and a bit of gold mirrorcard.

and an open card I made for a monthly swap, used the poppy stamp from KayCee Designs, blinged it up a bit and added a thoughtful quote from Mark Twain as the insert.
