Christmas Cards!

Ok as promised here is an update on the Christmas cards i've been making... i'm up to 23 so far with loads more to go!

Number 5... I used DCWV Christmas Papers, HOTP Sentiment stamp, See D's Traditional Santa and some chalk around the edge!
Number 6... Hotp papers, Cuttlebug Christmas Ornament Embossing Background Folder, 3" Scalloped Punch and a Forever Friends Sticker! Think this still need something but not too sure what or where!
Number 7-10... a gorgeous blue pearlescent/metalic cardstock, Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Background Folder, white cardstock and the gorgeous Santa Face stamp from Habico Clear Stamps! I did 4 in this colour!
Number 11-14... A glittered red cardstock, Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder, white cardstock and Habico Santa Face! I did 4 in this colour too!
Number 15-18... Green glittered cardstock, Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder, white cardstock and Habico Santa face! Again I have done 4 in this colour!
Number 19-20... Red cardstock, white cardstock, Habico Santa Face and some peel-offs for the sentiment! I have done 2 in this colour!

Number 21-22... green cardstock, white cardstock, Habico Santa Face and peel off sentiment! Again I have done 2 in this colour!Number 23... White cardstock, Silver cardstock, DCWV Christmas paper, blue metallic cardstock, turquoise peel-offs and sentiment with some blue gems! This looks a lot nicer IRL & I know peel-offs aren't in fashion but I have loads so thought i'd make use of them! I am making a few like this as I have loads of Christmas cards to make to sell... In which I will be donating some of the procede's to Charity!

Well... that's all I have for now as I spent Thursday taking apart the boys old beds ready for new ones to arrive and when they arrived at 11am I set about putting them together... each metal slat had to be screwed in place... boy were my fingers aching and my poor skin was really rough! I also thought i'd wash their quilts and bedding to go with the nice new beds, mattresses and pillows... was looking fantastic when I had finished!

I am now saving for a fridge/freezer all-in-one in my bid to be more cost effective on the environment and my electric bill, in which I will try to sell my seperate tall fridge and freezer! Also putting my Fishtank up for sale as I just don't have time to clean it etc! Lots of changes to be made in this house at the moment... LOL!

On other news my two cats Socks & Gizmo went to a lady who works for a cat charity, she is going to re-home them for me... as much as I loved them to bits and they drove me up the wall, my allergies were just getting worse and being on my maximum dose in allergy tablets... I had to let them go! At least I know they will go to a home where someone can give them the love and attention they need without being sneezed on all the time!
