How many days til Christmas??

Apologies for lack of blogging this week......just haven't felt like it.....nothing to show.......still wasn't feeling 100%...........tutoring 5 courses.........2 school risk assessments to do..........camera course.......and it seemed like 101 other things as well.......no crafting time til last night!!
I had aimed to make 3 or 4 xmas cards a month this year.......and am waaaaaaay behind on this.......have been too busy scrapbooking........so decided to start making some.....and here's the first.
Most of the papers were from a Forever Friends pack.......card is Bazzil........punches PM and SU......ribbon from stash.......and sentiment Penny Black.
Used the lovely sketch on Papertake Weekly........on Just Magnolia and Winter Wonderland 'anything goes' this week.......and Cupcake Craft and Rosie d want 'red and white' [this is actually to celebrate St Georges Day....but never mind!].
Have a great weekend everyone........bask in this wonderful sun if you're in the UK.

I love red Jacky and this is beautiful, Tilda looks so cute and with all the polka dots and gingham it suits her so well.
Happy crafting

Sometimes I quite fancy the idea of Christmas every day! I hope you do a post on your camera course when you feel up to it Jacky. I'm interested!

Deb said...

The card is ADORABLE! Makes me wish for Christmas already. :o)

I know what you mean about having other priorities. Even though I'm not able to blog everyday, I sure think about it! [wink]

Enjoy your weekend, Jacky. xo

Always happy to see you back on the blogosphere! But I have to admit it feels a little odd to see Christmas cards in April - good for you for sticking with it! I usually host a Christmas in July crafting event.

Good to see you blogging and to hear that you are on the mend. This is an adorable card to get you back in the swing of making your Crimble cards. I said exactly the same but got sort of lost in March - done 7 for April so am catching up a bit. I just love the sentiment you used - is it Penny Black?
