Gosh it's been a while.......

......apologies to all for being such a very bad blogger. I've had that awful flu bug for just over three weeks and what with all the kids Christmas activities at school, work and the usual 'mum' things to do, there's just not been enough hours in the day, well I guess you all know what I mean.

These few cards are for a couple of orders from my hubbies work collegues. I don't think I'll ever get around to making cards for myself....lol!!! A huge thank you to Caroline for sending me this gorgeous Whiff of Joy image, which has been coloured with distress inks, then clear embossed. The papers are DCWV, ribbon is HOTP and many thanks to Sue for the snowflake charm.

For the card above, again I coloured the image and clear embossed it. The papers are HOTP, snowflake charm, again courtesy of Sue, thanks luvly.


I've used the lovely Stampin Up, Silent Night stamp for this card, lots of twinkly glitter, cardstock has gone the my Big Shot using Cuttlebug embossing folders.


Another cuttlebug embossed card. Papers are DCWV, huge thanks to Michelle for the Core'dinations cardstock and ribbon.
I really think I ought to get on a make some family and friends Christmas cards now, gosh I'm sooooo disorganised this year, I've done hardly any Christmas shopping either. I hope you all have a lovely weekend, thanks for popping by my lil oasis, luv 'n' hugs

Great cards Vicki! I especially like the blue ones, it might have something to do with the colour and those papers are fab.
