Birthday Cards and Last of the christmas cards at last

Good morning ladies, i thought i would post the last of my christmas cards and also two birthday cards that i recently made. The birthday card for my mum was made using the gorgeous stamps from funky kits. I adore this cute rabbit, i don't know where the papers are from im afraid and the lettering was from my Quickutz Merry and Bright cookie dies. It was so nice to make a birthday card for a change. Can not wait for the new year and to start playing with some of the new stamps that are sitting waiting for me.

This was a birhday card for my friends son who was turning 18. Was not particularly happy with it, but i struggle so much with boys cards, especially older boys! decided to keep in basic, hope he liked it.

So these are the remainder of the christmas cards that i have been making. I am still working on 2 for my friends parents and auntie and then im completely done. It seems to have gone on forever, and there is no way im leaving it so late next year. I invite you all to join me in the birthday-day x-mas card weekly challenge in January, so we can get organized!! I already have 2 ladies that i will be nagging each week to join (by there request obviously!!). There will be prizes along the way to tempt you too!

I have recently come across the beautiful papers by My Minds Eye, does anyone else love them as much as me?
My local craft shop stocks about 150 of these gorgeous papers, i will be having a look after christmas and adding to my stash, as i just adore the quality of them. I am also looking forward to the release of the new stamps at Pollycraft. the talented Paula has some to be released shortly and i can barely wait!! I bet her talented DT will produce some gorgeous cards to tempt us all!!!

Well my lovelies, hope all your christmas preparations are coming along, im still struggling on, will probably take a break from blogging next week so i can catch up.
Also i am fast approaching 10,000 hits, i will be posting blog candy shortly and as soon as it hits 10,000 i will pick a winner. I will try and get the candy posted up by the weekend, so watch this space.
Hugs to you all Linda x
