Christmas is getting near!!

So I decided to start christmas card making! I am pleased with the ones I have made so far and will probably use the same layout for the others I need to make. (if it works, why change it!).
Here are the cards I have made so far, I have made 5 of each card...

I have also made some birthday and general cards, I made 2 of each of them,they are here...

These are the first crafty things I have made for what seems like ages, even though I have had the last 6 weeks off work (gotta love the summer holidays). The main reasons for not getting much crafting done are the worrying that has been going on in this house whilst C was waiting for his A level results, then the panic about him getting into the uni of his choice, luckily it has all worked out great for him. Now we are busy making lists of what he needs to take with him and just how much it will cost us!!
B got her GCSE results yesterday and she did really well, we are so very proud of her, she has Aspergers and learning difficulties and she hasn't had a good time at secondary, all the way through it she was bullied, both physically and mentally, so her results are all the more impressive to us. So, tomorrow evening we are taking C and B out for a celebration meal and drinks :-) Love you both xx.
I have finished my first year at Uni, just waiting for my marks now, I was hoping to get an idea of how well I had done before the second year starts, but it looks like I won't find out until I go back in September!! I am just hoping that I have passed!
I am sitting here at my desk looking out of the window and can see the clouds in the sky and the wind blowing the trees, oh how I love this time of year, fresher during the day and cooler in the evenings, but not cold enough to have the quilt back on the bed yet (Dear Husband thinks it is though!). I am hot enough already, the quilt will just make me feel like a jacket potato wrapped in bacofoil and sitting in the oven!!! How old do you have to be before you can start to entertain the idea of single beds I wonder!!
Anyway, I am going to go and make myself a nice cup of tea before I start an epic card making session again.
Thanks for reading xx.


  1. WOW - you have been busy - some really great cards!

  2. You're super organised - I can't even think about Christmas yet but your cards are just fab. I love the idea of handmade cards but I'm just not sure I'm up to it.

    Glad to hear exam results went well in your house. It's such a stressful time for everyone, I still wake up with nightmares thinking I'm about to open then envelope.

  3. Lovely cards! :) I have that Santa stamp too, isn't it great? Too busy delivering toys to tame that wild beard perhaps! lol

  4. Fab cards, I'm taking the head in the sand approach to Christmas this year... too much organising, I'm leaving it til the last minute

  5. Oh my what lovely lovely cards.

    You must tell me where the round christmas tree stamp is from cos I must have it!!!

    Also I love the back ground on the second card down, is that stamped too , it's so delicate and simple, if it is a stamp could you tell me who makes it and where you had it from.

    As for your comments about CraftFairy she's my best crafty mate, on Friday we went to Ikea to buy more bits for her craftroom!
