Wednesday Again and some Quick Christmas Cards

Can you believe its Wednesday again already, i have to admit its been lovely to have a more relaxed morning, with no school run, but its going far too quickly for my liking.

Hubby has gone back to work this morning, and we have the days ahead planned. Im dropping off Ben at his cousins later this morning and Jasmine and I are popping into town for a bit of lunch and maybe a bit of shopping.

Made these quick cards on Monday evening using up the Basic Grey Figgy papers. I am trying to work my way through my pads of papers, using one pad before moving on to the next. I have recycled some of last years christmas cards and also cheated using some of the gorgeous LOTV die cut images!

Tgus us a recycled christmas card, not clear but the background on the image is glittered.

One of those adorable LOTV images highlighted with stickles.

Another recycled card, with the addition of stickles on the snow. What a cute little bear!

LOTV again, this is the last of the images i have this size, i see another order coming along soon!

and finally, another recycled card using a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
I am hoping to finish off using the rest of the pad tonight, so may have more cards to show you later. I am intending on doing some iris folding trees later, a very effective technique, and greta i believe with these papers!
Have a wonderful day, heard snow should be on its way today, heres hoping! hugs to you all Linda x
