OMG! 17 December... how did that happen?!


Morning Fluffers!

Why didn't anyone tell me it's Christmas next week?! HELLO! Yep, denial has left the building and Christmas Fever has kicked in. The house is full of naughty stuff and the diet is on vacation. Whoop, whoop! I've even got the Christmas CDs out. :)

So, with seven days to go, I thought I'd best make a start on some Christmas cards. One down, erm, twentyish to go. When's the last post?


Saturday morning means time for a new Sketch from Jo at Sketch Saturday. We have stash from Crafter's Companion up for grabs, so I hope you have time to pop over for all the details and to see the wonderful creations from the rest of The Saturdays.


Strangely, I'm not too panicked about Christmas this year, but I am getting a little nervous about the fiftyish wedding invitations I need to make. Still, the wedding's not until April, so I've got loads of time...

Recipe
Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Echo Park Season's Greetings
Image: Craft UK

Sarah said...

Hi Faye, what a wonderful Christmas card - great image so cute! The papers are lovely too and really like the twine.

I'm feeling rather smug as all cards made and posted, presents brought (just got to wrap) and on-line food shop order waiting to go. Got a good reason for being so organised tho! What's worrying me now is hubby's birthday on the 29th!!

Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

Sarah
