Running out of Time !

Good evening sorry I have not been around much; staffing amongst other things is a problem at work again which is keeping me busy and unfortunately out of the craft room. Not much progress elsewhere either and I have still most of my christmas shopping to do!...I think its going to be last minute rush this year wish isn't me. I'm not making much more progress on the Christmas card making front and I still have my tags to make, I'm not sure if I am going to manage it this year...I think I'm almost there with the cards but haven't made any tags or boxes or inserts; thankfully only a few of the cards I made so far will need boxes. On a positive note I did get to have a  play with some of my great birthday pressies this afternoon and the craft room is looking very good and well organised. I finished my daughters Christmas card but I can't post it yet as she will see it instead this is one of the ones I finished and not yet posted.
Merry Christmas 

As with most of my cards made so far not sure who is getting what card this was made using a free Humphrey's corner stamp and some of my stash of christmas papers most of which are also magazine freebies.I love blues and red together.I did have a little accident when I coloured in one of the ears of the reindeer green...oops! so it's now a slightly odd shade of dark brown ! 

Close up detail 

don't look to close at colouring !
