My last Christmas card done......

My last Christmas Card has now been completed and I have to say that I had a big sigh of relief. I love the start of the season when you get the new stamps and papers but then the obligation starts to set in and the fun of it goes out the window! I nearly buckled halfway through and brought some shop cards but felt guilty as everyone I send cards too know that I make them, so I kept going!

I have forgotten how hard it is to make cards when the kids are around. I am used to having peace while I create listening to my music but today with the kids home on holidays it was a rude reminder of what my crafting time used to be like!!! It is not that they were naughty but kids are demanding on your time so my card ended up taking quite a few hours to make, LOL!

I have used the sketch over at Tickled Pink Monthly Challenges as I had to join in on the last challenge there. Have to admit cant wait to see what the new weekly challenges will bring us in the new year.

I also had this tartan paper from the Joyval collection and really did want to use it so that combined with my sketch is what I set off with and this is what I came up with:

My card was also inspired by one of the DT cards that I saw a few weeks ago at Just Magnolia. I helped me to used these papers!

I am going to take a few weeks break from crafting from today. I have even cleaned off the desk so I am not tempted to sit down and make some more. I need to spend some time with the kiddies and with christmas this week and with Mick being home on holidays next week I have decided that now was a good time for a break. Hopefully it will mean that I will come back in the new year feeling re energised and ready to go.

To everyone that has popped past my blog this year and left such supportive comments THANK YOU! It has been such a great year in the world of blogging for me as I have met lots of wonderful ladies and had so many great opportunities.

Merry Christmas to you all. Wishing you and your families good times, good cheer and a FANTASTIC new year!!!

Until next time xoxo
