Today is going to be one of those rare days .. .. the sort you wish for, but that seldom appear.
I was up at 6.15am and by 7.00am all the ironing I started last night was finished, the kitchen and bathroom sorted and I was showered and dressed!!
.. .. .. and I am even here with an early share .. .. woo hoo!!! My card was a bit of a cheat though because I had coloured the image previously and had it sitting in a box waiting to be used.
I am posting early because this card is for entering into Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge .. .. and the challenge closes at 7.00pm this evening.
I am going to try really hard to enter every month and put the cards I make to one side for my own personal use at Christmas. At least I will be guaranteed that there will be eleven ready and waiting. Most of what I make I sell which means when it comes to my friends and family I end up in a last minute rush or like this year had to resort to a few purchased ones!!! Shock horror!!! I really don't want to see the look of disappointment on my friends faces again by giving them another shop bought card, so am trying hard to get ahead of the game (amongst everything else I am trying to be ahead of the game with LOL!!).
So here is my first Rudolph Day card for 2013
Image: Penny Black "Holiday Hugs"
Sentiment: Computer Generated using font "Fontdinerdotcom Sparkly"
Backing Papers: Kaisercraft "Mint Twist"
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Nestabilities: Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle
ProMarkers and Chalks
My Trust Sewing Machine
Ribbon from my Stash Box
so there we go. Card number one in the box .. .. thanks Sandra xx
I have just spoken with my Mum. We catch up with each other each morning and she always asks what I have planned for the day and how things are going. I bragged about all the jobs I had already done .. .. but just couldn't bring myself to tell her I had made a Christmas card. She just wouldn't understand LOL!!
Have a great day everyone.
Because I am feeling "hyper" I am hopeful for lots disappearing off my "do list" today.
