Five days and counting!

Evening all!

Well it's been another long weekend at work yet inbetween this I have still managed to find time to made 3 dozen mince pies and a batch of my delicious Rocky Road bars in preparation for my fuddle at work tomorrow. So before I head off to bed to get some much needed rest I thought I would share another of the christmas cards I made whilst I was off work the week before last! Again I made 4 of this same design (sorry for the washed out colour of the pic, don't know why its done this, I promise you it looks much better IRL).


CS: SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Choc Chip

Paper: Cosmo Cricket

Image: Elzybells (Sadly retired), coloured with koh-i-noors & sansodor

Sentiment: Paula Pascual christmas sentiments, SU Contempo Christmas (inside)

Tools: SU Scallop Trim Border punch, SU Ink in Choc Chip and Cherry Cobbler

Misc: Sponges for inking/distressing the edges

and the simply decorated inside....

Well I have written and posted / delivered all of my cards. So just the wrapping left. Admittedly I have wrapped a dozen or so presents but I still have around another 4 dozen to wrap! What takes me longer is that I am a sucker for nice packaging and love to add matching tags, bows and even ribbon! I have bought some lovely red wired and green satin ribbon fom a local store and have been adorning my gifts with it! They look gorgeous on my presents under the tree! I doubt the recipients will appreciate it as much as I do though! Lol!

Well thanks for stopping by! I know that time is precious this week as so many of us still have so much to do in preparation for the big day!

For those of you who have taken the time to stop by, I would just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry christmas and I hope you all have a wonderful time with your families!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
