Christmas cards/Thank you

Well i can hardly believe its almost a week since i last posted any cards. I can only say i have been finding it very hard to keep on top of things this week. After working all day Saturday and sunday last week, i spent the rest of the week catching up with household duties and doing some of the dreaded christmas shopping.

For weeks i've been wanting to start on my christmas cards, and finally this morning i started in earnest. Below are a couple of cards that i have made. I am afraid they are quite simple as i have so many to make if i put too much detail on them ill never get them done.

In total i have made about 24 cards today so im feeling pretty happy with myself. I think im halfway there or maybe a little under half way but its a start!

Am hoping that tomorrow ill get most of the others finished and then i can concentrate on joining in with some of the fabulous challenges again.

I apologise for not getting round to your blogs as often as i'd like, i have been trying to do the rounds every couple of days, but if i have missed you i am really sorry. Hopefully ill get back to normal this week.

A note to Heidi if your reading this, i am sorry i have not received your email hun, i will try and mail you again tomorrow and hopefully we will have more luck.
Does anyone else have the same trouble with emails going astray? i have found this an increasingly occurance lately, and i can't think why. Its another mystery!
I have enjoyed inking up the new Tilda club stamps but unfortunately have not yet got round to making up any cards using them. Whilst doing a bit of blog hopping i have come across some marvellous cards using the new images. I adore the kissing couple under the mistletoe. Im determined to make a card with that one next.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, im waiting for the snow that they have forecast, but as yet not one snowflake!! that is so typical, we rarely get snow here in Aldham, sob! sob! I love to see it when it has first fallen and it just looks like a blanket covering everything, although i have to admit im not looking forward to driving in it. In fact i've warned my hubby that he will be doing the school run on Monday if there is snow or ice. Don't want accident number 3 do i ?

Well it has been good catching up with you would love to hear from you if you want to drop me a line its

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs Linda x

Thank you so so much Linda for your lovely comment on my blog.

As for all your latest creations, they are fantastic-I'm beginning to panic as I haven't really got into the Christmas mood yet and have yet to make any Christmas cards. I think I know what I'll be doing all day on chrsitmas Eve lol
but well done you for all your hard work-they're beautiful,

Love Sarita xxx

Hi Hun,

your cards are gorgeous.
I think everybody is very busy lately. I don't have the time to comment on all those blogs and I'm late with almost every DT-card I have to make.
Every week I tell myself it's going to be a quiet one, but in the end it has busy, busy ,busy again.

Talk soon dear,
xoxo karin

Chrissy said...

Hi Linda, What a lovely set of cards. 24 cards, that is brilliant. I have managed to do quite a lot this weekend but not that much!
I love them all but the blue card with the teddy is just soo amazingly cute. I looked out at 6 this morning and there was a covering of snow but then it got washed away with the rain...But, with it being so cold, i felt not the slightest bit guilty just staying put and crafting. Hugs to you XX

Rica said...

WOW - gorgeous cards and so many. I really need to take a leaf out of your book, keep them simple and do lots instead of spending all day on one card.
I love em all, can't say which is my favourite.
hugs Heather xx
