How to make 70 cards very fast!

Yep, I actually made 70 of these little cards in a couple of hours yesterday morning, and then I made another 12 less simple cards in the afternoon... 82 cards in one day - go me lol :o)  And then when I'd made that lot, I went Christmas shopping with my mum and didn't get back until nearly 10pm, so I apologise for being very behind in visiting your blogs but I will catch up tonight.


These are Morgan's cards for his friends at school, using the pre-coloured versions of Carol Singing Cat and Ice Skating Hoot from Pink Gem Designs, printed onto linen card.  These images come with a black line version that you can colour and you also get the pre-coloured image, which is ideal when you have a lot of cards to make - I made 35 of these...


... and I made 35 of these for Dex's friends at nursery, using Fairy Teddy, Teddy with Christmas Tree and Teddy with Candy Cane, again in the pre-coloured versions from Pink Gem Designs.

I was right about getting Dex's cold - I'm feeling really awful today!  I just seem to shake one thing off and then I get something else, or if I'm ok one of the kids will be poorly, fed up with it now!  I've got to get gifts made for the nursery staff today, and lots more to do tomorrow including watching Dex as a shepherd in his first nativity!  All I really want to do is curl up in the chair and fall asleep, wonder if I can find a spare half hour to do that this afternoon...

  19. Cor - 82 cards, and I thought I was doing well with 50 odd of 'em!!! You've knocked my socks off. Such sweet cards and love that you've personalized them, Lisa.

    I gave in this year and let Emily buy a box of ones that she liked to hand out at school, but think I will file this idea for next year (if you don't mind).

    Hope you feel better soon, it's horrible having to soldier on when you feel rotten and just want to go to bed.

    Take care, Sarah
