Last Christmas card for this year......

This is for my son nearly forgot oooops :O(.   Wanted to do something a little bit different for him this year and came up with this after looking through my cd`s. It`s my last christmas card for this year yippee and still have about 25 for next year, now where do I put them for safe keeping lol as I do have the habit of mislaying things are you the same as I am not organised at all. Think I had better make that my new years resolution.

Last minute order

Hubby asked if I would make a birthday card for the owner of the hotel he stays in during the week using a photo of his dog sasha which I did, when he gave him the card Monday, Mick phoned me to say he loved it and would I make 10 cards exactly the same but just change the sentiment to Merry christmas. Well who am I to say no :O). He did not want any embellishments on or anything else to make it more christmassy, So here they are.

The backing paper and sentiment came from

My grand children Chelsea, Ryan and Ashley are at the age when they want money for christmas, so I am always thinking how can I give them this instead of just in a card. I was looking through one of my CD`s and came across a template for crackers and it went from there.

Got away from the Christmas cards :O)

What a week it has been, had hubby at home last week with the flu (no it was not man flu lol) and I was not 100% myself but I did manage to make 2 cards but I only have one on here as I forgot to take a picture of the other one which was for the owner of the hotel where he stays during the week in London.
 What a surprise I got when he phoned me last night and said Peter loved his card which had a picture of his dog Sasha on and he asked if I could make 10 cards exactly like the one I made but just changing the sentiment from Happy Birthday to Merry Christmas so of course I said yes :O) very happy bunny lol.
Now back to the card I did manage to remember to photograph this was for my neighbour Sue who has been through so much this year.

Challenge for Joanna Sheen

For this I got all of my Joanna Sheen CD`s spread out all over my desk, placing them into my harddrive and going through to find an image, well after about 1hr I finally decided to use an image that is popular with most crafters. Just a light difference I did not make a card!!!!!!!!!!!!
