Yoo hoo and welcome to a lovely sunny (spring like) Thursday!
Yesterday saw me entering a Christmas card challenge over on the ABC of Christmas blog which set me to thinking about just how many cards I made for last Christmas. Their challenges are fortnightly, that's about 24 cards if I enter every challenge, then there's the Craft Mad & Loving It groups Christmas recipe which is also fortnightly but only just started so that's 22 if I do every one . . . not enough you know! Thought I'd better crack on with some extras! I am so loving the clean and simple card technique and think it looks pretty classy myself . . . . so all I added as an embellishment was a length of gold edged red ribbon and some glittery highlights and BINGO!!, with the added bonus of NOT NEEDING A LARGE STAMP on it either so less money shelled out to Royal Mail - sorry chaps but I think you are having a laugh as I'm STILL waiting for one Christmas card to make the distance to Bath - all of TWELVE MILES!
Hope your Thursday pans out real well for you all, I've a hairdressing appointment early this afternoon and, frankly, can hardly wait - my fringe (or bangs, depending on which side of the Atlantic you happen to be) is driving me MENTAL and needs sorting big stylee!! Later peeps.
