Some quick Christmas cards

Another busy day today, we've had a huge toy clear out to make space for all the new stuff the boys will be getting for Christmas.  And then we put the tree up - it's looking very pretty apart from one bit at the back that has about 30 baubles crammed onto 3 or 4 branches... Dex was in charge of that bit!

As I've not had chance to make anything today (although I should be making cards for my Grandma's birthday, which is only a few days away!), I thought I'd show the quick cards I made for Morgan's teachers and Dex's nursery staff.


I made 12 of these cards using different LOTV die cut nativity scenes and Christmas Sparkles digi papers from Pink Gem Designs, printed onto linen card.  I kept them really simple, just printing the sentiments directly onto the card and inking around all the edges.




And then very similar cards for Morgan's teachers using LOTV die cut images that Morgan picked out, and Pink Petticoat gingham papers, printed onto linen card.  Inked all the edges, added lots of glamour dust and that's it.  Sorry the photos aren't very good, but they were taken quite late when the light had gone.

Tonight I should be rushing around making my Grandma's cards and writing in Christmas cards (still haven't posted any yet!), but I'll probably end up wasting the whole evening on the laptop - there's always tomorrow isn't there?!
