Last Minute Cards!

Hullo, Hullo,
How are you?
Manic, stressed, pulling your hair out ? or is that just me!
Only joking but I am getting a little panicky that I am not sorted for Christmas yet but then I leave everything to last minute like I normally do so I guess I just like the adrenalin rush - well at least that's what I am trying to convince myself!
I have had my swine flu jab, didn't hurt one bit and only had an achey arm for a couple of days so a result all round I think apart from my car breaking down in the car park afterwards, the alarms continually going off and missing my hair appointment!!!
Not a good day that!
I have my Christmas party at my local scrap club tomorrow and have to make some cards so as I have only just started making them, I thought I would keep them nice and simple so they will all probably look like these two above with maybe slight variations.
In all honesty I did think well it is a Scrapbooking club so would they not mind if they weren't hand made but apparently they make their cards so I didn't want to let the side down!
The card on the left with the little mouse and the scallop punched frame was inspired by Dawn if you get the time go check her blog out as she does some wonderful things and lots of videos on how to do them!
Well enough from me have fun whatever you may be doing!
Toodle pop!


  1. Lovely cards, need to start mine .....

  2. They're both lovely Suzie - good idea to stick to a simple design and just vary it slightly, it's a lot quicker! Love the frame on the little mousie card. Nicki, :0)
