Getting Into The Swing.....

of Christmas. That's what I've been doing this week.
I didn't think I was going to get time to make any Christmas cards this year but several nights of not being able to sleep due to my annoying Restless Legs Syndrome gave me the opportunity to.
So for most of this week I've been sitting at my desk in the wee hours while everyone has been sleeping. Does anyone else suffer with this incredibly frustrating condition & have you found anything that helps? I'd love to hear from you!!!!

Anyway, these were the first batch I made. It seems like I've made so many cards with this range from Making Memories but I loved it soooo much I kept buying more, lol.
I made about 11 of these, all slightly different.

Last year I bought some gift cards that I really loved & then on Christmas Day I found myself taking them off all the discarded wrapping paper & I popped them away. They were too pretty to throw away.
This is what they looked like. It's hard to tell in the photo but they are very glittered.

These gift cards were recycled for my second batch of cards.
I just adore red & white together.
They were quick & easy to put together. I cut the snowflakes on my Cricut.

Tonight I sat down & wrote all my cards & addressed them, just need to buy some stamps & post them off now.
How are your cards coming along? Are you making any this year?
There's a few more fun projects that I'd like to get done for Christmas but I'll have to see how time goes.

I have decided that tomorrow is going to be the day that we put our Christmas tree up. December 1st isn't til Wednesday & I know it's not going to happen during a week day & I don't want to wait until next weekend, so tomorrow it is!!!

Thanks for stopping by today, take care & have fun :)

Christmas Is Coming.....

Boy, has Christmas snuck up quickly or what? I can't believe it's getting so close. I was thinking yesterday that there's less than 5 weeks left of school!!!!! It's all a bit scary really.
Thankfully I've had a head start on present buying & it's nearly all finished. Strangely enough I don't really feel all that flustered by it this year, it feels pretty easy.
It will be our first Christmas in our new home too.

I am teaching my second class at Tomorrow's Memories this Friday, which just so happens to be a Christmas class. I love making Christmas cards, it really gets me in the festive mood.
Would you like a little sneak peek? OK here it is....

Are you going to be making Christmas cards this year?
If so how many do you make? Last year I ended up making about 45 I think, LOL.
Well that's it for me today, it's time to go pick up Molly from school, she'll be buzzing today as her class went on an excursion to Scitech & King's Park.
Take care :)
