Last batch!


Hi, I'm back and with one I made earlier, in fact it was  my last batch of Christmas cards.   Again a very simple make, but when there's lots to make at this time of the year, that's what's needed.  The embossing folder and poinsettia are both Tim Holtz and the greeting is from a set of Katy Sue clear stamps, bought last year and never used.
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last few makes, I really do appreciate them, and I hope to catch up with everyone over the next few days as I resume a 'normal' life. The last couple of days have been a whirlwind of washing, (I always think it looks strange when there's a line full of bikinis, shorts and tee shirts etc. in the winter)  the tree is up, and the house decorated, just wish I felt a bit more Christmassy!
Hope you all have a good Sunday, I'm off to Northumberland today,  a friend is having a Christmas Lunch party, should be a good day and hopefully give me that Christmas feeling.

I am entering this at:
  That Craft Place - Christmas
  Dream Valley Challenge - Christmas

Now Avril - do you wear a bikini? Lord child, your body is fairing a lot better than mine but then again I might be old enough to be your Mum.
Your back at home safe and sound just in time for the whirl wind we call Christmas! Your card is very pretty and I often like the more simple cards the best.
Happy Holidays Kid!
