Merry Christmas

Afternoon to you all, ive been neglecting my blog a bit this last week but been busy helping to organising a 50th birthday for my boss Im not sure I shouldve as im coming up to the big 40 soon and as he told me revenge is sweet !!

Our House to Your House

Saturday again where does the time go !! It will be xmas before we know it, Im still trying to do xmas cards but so slow this year.  Im going to cut down on the amount I give this year and give the money to charity,  half of the people you give and get cards you never hear or see from year to year and I think the cost of postage this year will have an effect on how many are posted.

Less is More

Another card for the LIM challenge but embossed my background with the mbosibilities just love these and they are so crisp. Stamp is from simply create embossed with lilac holographic although you dont really see if very well I used SU rose red ink and backing paper and sentiment was done on computer. Off now to make a few card for orders but would really like outside as Im feeling a bit iffy today and think the fresh air will do me good, i wish i could find some energy from somewhere, hopefully feel better tomorrow.
