Christmas Card Marathon

Morning all, hope you had a great weekend.  Saturday was a bit of a washout but Sunday was quite pleasant.

Before I show you what I was up to this weekend I have to say a MASSIVE thank you to Andrea of, for the tickets to the Big Stamp Show at Alexandra Palace this coming Sunday.  They arrived safe and sound on Saturday and my SIL and I are very excited to be going.  Thank you sooooo much for your generosity.

I spent the majority of the weekend having a bit of a crafty marathon.  I'm not normally a card kit kind of girl, but when I saw a couple of kits at the Biggin Hill Sincerely Yours show earlier this month I fell in love with some of the images and had to have them.

Here is the result of my little card making marathon on Saturday...

That's certainly put a big dent in the Christmas cards for this year.

All of these cards have been made using Hunkydory card kits.  The cardstock is really lovely and the artwork is gorgeous.  As I said earlier, I'm not really a card kit kind of girl, but I really enjoyed making these.

Right then, better actually get on with some work, that is what they pay me for...!

Hope you all have a fabulous week.  Take care.
