A few More Christmas Cards

Wouldn't it be good to be able to slow down time at the flick of a switch? I don't know about you but for me time is simply galloping by. I just about got my tree done and now I need to start on Mum's. But I still have cards to make and write, presents to buy and wrap and of course there is the Christmas Day running order to work out. Oh and I've still got my job to do too!!!

So my title is -  few more Christmas cards - however I seem to have deleted some of them from my files so I've got one for today and I will take some more pics later when the light is better - don't you just hate these dark winter days?

Today's card is some Triple Time Stamping - take a look

Three pieces of card stock with the images stamped on to them and then stacked up with coloured mats behind them. I stamped my greeting onto some velum and also added some gems to add a bit of sparkle.

Ok so I'm off to to  bit more Christmas crafting - see you soon - J xx

Count Down to Christmas!

Well here we are four days into Advent and I hardly have any cards made! I have a day off on Friday and I can see me having a marathon card making session. That's apart from getting them written and posted  - eek!

So I said I hardly have any made  - here's one that I managed to get done this last weekend. 

I got the inspiration for this from Pinterest and it uses the lovely Christmas Happiness stamp set. I love the pine branches and cones and the silver bow adds the perfect finishing touch. 

So before I go to bed tonight I am starting to set up my planner for next year. I love the idea of bullet journaling but I've decided to move from a notebook to a filo fax. 
I tend to always be playing catch up when it comes to setting up the pages so I've bought some ready printed ones so I should be more organised  - well that's the idea anyway!
I will get it set up and then do a post later in the week. Meanwhile I have been frantically working on my Mum's Advent calendar. That sure took longer than expected to make  - more on that story later as they say. 

Thanks for stopping by tonight and taking a look  - I hope to see you again soon  - j xx
