My Christmas Cards are Done!!!

Hooray! I did it! I finished making my Christmas cards! Here is the final design;

I wanted to try my hand at making photo cards this year because I had got the perfect shot of my daughter wearing a Santa hat during a photo shoot I did for a work project some time ago... and I just had to share it with everyone I love!

I'm pretty happy with the way it has turned out - I especially like the Kraft base (I heart Kraft!!!), the deep red pp and embellishments, and the distressed edges on the photo.

Now comes the fun part... writing in all 20 of my cards. Oh the monotony! Blah!!!

I have another project to share! It's a wooden word thingy. Not sure how else to describe it! LOL! Here it is;

I have used Rose Moka pp (my first time using this brand and boy do I love it!), a gorgeous Fancy Pants Glitter Cut (Willow), Making Memories Love Story ribbon, and Carolee's and Basic Grey Alphas to decorate the word.

I totally hated this project when I was working on it last night, but after a bit of sleep and a few major adjustments, I am now at 'peace'! Yes Mum... you were right! LOL!

Well, that is it for today. Off to the beach soon for a bit of a cool down and dinner. Night!!!
