Ten quick Christmas cards

As I was getting cards ready this evening to take to mum for her to write, I had a count up ... and found that altogether I still need to make 60 more!  You'd never believe that I've been making cards all year - in fact, I've lost count of how many ... lots were sold for money to go to charity.

I was so thankful that when we were in Maidstone last week I visited Hobbycraft and they had packs of Christmas aperture cards that I thought might come in handy. I actually thought that I would pretty them up with glitter etc, but, as I need some quick cards, I decided to just stamp 'Merry Christmas' with a HOTP stamp and line the insides to show through the acetate using a mix of memorybox yuletide, authentique peaceful collection and teresacollins Christmas home papers.


Phew! That's another ten made. Think I now need to dig out a Hunkydory kit I bought for ... just in case!
