WOYWW- The last christmas cards and a Gray weekend!

Hi Everyone

 I have been away for a few weeks as time got the better of me but I'm back for this week at least! This week my desk is devoid of crafting but covered with christmas gift bags, a few wrapped presents and a whole lot of rough paper on which I have written/typed bits of my counselling assignment for college. You really don't want to be bored with that… so no photos! Instead I'll just share with you some of the final cards I have made and then I think I'll put Christmas crafting away!
Taking inspiration from cards demonstrated at the NEC, I made these,

Three cards on the same theme using a stencil and stamp from Inkylicious, such a quick and easy design to do. 
The card below I made for a colleague who wanted a card for their Grand daughter but in Welsh! 

Well… I've finished with making Christmas cards, I've bought a box from Tesco for anyone else…. sorry, but it's the thought that counts right? 

I have a confession to end with. I refused to get sucked into the whole shameful 'Black Friday" lunacy going on in the shops but what I didn't realise was that my favourite craft companies would have some very tasty offers online. So girls I'm afraid I got very excited when I spotted 30% off, yes 30% off all Clarity stamps and stencils! After frantically trying to get on to the website for 2 days (it was all weekend) I finally managed to place an order with minutes to spare and am now excitedly awaiting the arrival of a fairly large package! OOOOHHHH the adrenaline rush! I'm sorry and I'm truly ashamed and ask for your forgiveness.

  3. You are forgiven ;) I haven´t done any Christmas crafting at all... I might create some cards to send off at New Year, it is so ´me´ to decide on that last minute. I hope your stencils arrive soon, enjoy! Happy woyww and a big hug from Holland, Marit #19

  8. Thanks for my lovely card ! So great to see the technique at the sow & then actually be able to do it ourselves isn't it ! See you soon Ali xx

  9. The bauble with the scene inside it is fantastic I avoided black Friday on line and cyber Monday to be good but it only worked till we walked around a mall then it didn't last lol happy WOYWW hugs Nikki 5

  10. Your cards are beautiful. I am afraid I have been caught up in the thing called life too, so I have not been around for what feels like ages. So good to be back visiting 'old friends'. I only realise now how much I have missed all of you.
    Happy WOYWW!
