I finally got the birthday cards finished; it feels like it’s taken me weeks and weeks to finish just two cards! I have had so little time for crafting, although I've probably spent far too much time blog hopping whilst “Christmas shopping” online!..well more browsing than shopping really as I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for so difficult to find it. I could be doing other things with my time so only have myself to blame., I'm also getting too cosy by the coal fire...that’s my biggest problem...but it is the best bit about winter especially when it’s cold, wet and miserable outside.
I'm pleased with how this card has turned out and I like the layout, I think its my favourite of the two and the one I will give to HB for his birthday...its always so difficult deciding what pressie to get him when its so close to Christmas…double difficult when he is the hardest man in the world to buy anything for !! Anyway I'm sure he will like his cute card …I do ;-) I do like easel cards. I can go to town a bit, not quite manly but think I will l get away with it… just. I'm Not sure what I'm going to do next, I've no more Christmas cards needed and no birthdays coming up; so I might do some colouring for fun and see where it takes me… or make a load of thank you cards or start to work on valentines day mmm…Choices.
I do need get my Christmas shopping finished so that should be my priority and start wrapping and posting the pressies I already have, so lots to keep me busy.below is a couple more photos and the challenges I would like to take part in. I came across a fab one called "Pile it On" that actively encourages you to enter as many other challenges as you can, it has a fab DT and is a fun concept. Have a fab weekend and thanks for popping in…hugs…Andrea
