Well, the week was!

I am sitting here on Sunday night completely wiped out! The week has been quieter, but still tiring. On the plus side, I made cards! I kind of had to, as my mother-in-law bought 30 of my 55 Christmas cards. So I need to bang some more together! Luckily I have invested in "a few" Christmas sets....

One of my favourite festive sets ever, "No Peeking" (126292 $17.95 CM, 126290 $24.95 WM) - How cute is that reindeer??? This coordinates nicely with the BEAUTIFUL "Snow Festival" designer series paper. Best thing about this paper - one of the colours is PINK! Primrose Petals to be precise. So I've made a few PINK, red & green Christmas cards...

Please note - this card is NOT matted really badly, in fact I grabbed whatever cardstock was nearby for the background of these pictures & unfortunately it was Raspberry Ripple.

Finally, this was a CASEd card from something my upline found on Stampin' Connection, the demonstrator-only SU! forum. The design is by Ann Schach, clearly a very clever lady! In the end, it was really faffy, but it looks pretty cool now finished. I am not sure I will make too, too many though. I have insufficient patience.

This uses the "Scentsational Season" bundle mainly (129946 $32.95 CM; 129945 $36.95 WM) - gorgeous solid stamps that ink up BEAUTIFULLY with our new pads, plus the matching Framelits dies. The set coordinates with some scented embossing powder, which I haven't had chance to try yet, but I will, count on it! Shame this isn't smellernet though.

In other news, I cooked 60 portions/meals this weekend. It was HARD. I've never done that many before, but I arranged with Heather to trade 30 for 30, so we had to make less variety each, which certainly made it easier. I am looking forward to less stressful dinner times, however I am heartily sick of the kitchen right now!


  1. I love all of your sweet holiday images with these sensational papers!! Such adorable Christmas cards, Bexx!

    What an amazing feeling it must be to have all those meals socked away! Congratulations for this great feat!

  2. Your cards are great. I especially love the gingerbread of my favs I've seen with these images...I love the steam stamped on vellum!
    and my thoughts ae like Lynn, how great to have all those meals prepared! I've thought about this a few times, even got a great book from the library on it, but have never tried it large scale! You've inspired me to take a look at it again, as our midweek schedule is so hectic, frozen entrees would be great!

  3. That's a LOT of cooking! These Christmas cards are fun, playful and cute all wrapped up in one.
