Was it good for you?

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas - I certainly did, Santa brought me an iPad which I had been lusting after for ages, and Boxing Day saw the arrival of Max and Milo who kept us entertained and very amused. Photos to follow!

Here's a couple more cards made with the fabulous Kraft with Colour collection from Craftwork Cards - be sure to hop over there, they have a sale on at the moment

For this first one, I used one of the blank chipboard pieces in the pack, dry brushed it with white acrylic paint, and overstamped with the music note stamp. The heart was cut with the George cartridge



and on this second card, I punched holes to thread with ribbon through some of the circles intended to take the circular greetings, and used them as a border. The tiny flowers on the bottom were punched



The fridge is full of leftovers, lovingly wrapped in clingfilm or foil. They will sit there for about three days, and then get chucked out if past experience is anything to go by. I should shorten the process and chuck it out straightaway, but that seems so much more wasteful than the three day later rule! All those recipes for tasty turkey curry/turkey and ham pie/turkey soup/turkey stew, all seem to be a turkey too far for me, so, with a guilty conscience I do the turkey fling....

I'm sure you love your IPad but no present beats spending time with grandkids. Both your cards are so pretty. I'm ready to move on from Christmas cards so welcome your heart cards.

The kraft colour reall sets these cards off well - beautiful.

I didn't think I bought much this year but the worktop in the kitchen still has piles of snacks that haven't been touched.

I love the look of kraft paper on your cards!

Trash day where I live is Fridays so Thursday nights are usually left-over night, and anything we don't finish then are chucked in the trash! I feel bad but sometimes I just don't know how to NOT cook for an army since I grew up in a large family.
