Christmas flowers

I'm supposed to be getting on with inserts/bagging cards (not many to do now, thank goodness), but I'm just having a breather while I wait for Mr Ocado to bring my groceries, so I've just got time to show two of the cards I made when we were in Eastbourne last week. I bought the Anna Griffin Christmas kit box from QVC in July thinking that I would be able to make some quick cards ready for my Tearfund sale. The quality of Anna's stuff is usually excellent, but, sadly, it's not the case with this kit - stickers wouldn't stick, the linings of the envies are put in wrongly (having to ditch those), most of the decoupaged pieces were out of alignment, so I had to take them apart and back together again ... so the hope of making quick cards didn't really happen. Nevermind, I did manage to make some and here are two of them for Scrapbook sisters challenge 55: Christmas flowers:

These are also for:

Christmas stampin all year long: resist the temptation - no stamps at all
Christmas inspirations 34: birds or flowers
Sew many challenges: anything goes
Penny's 63: anything goes
Creatalicious 26: anything goes
Papertake: anything goes
Woodware USA 46: anything goes
ABC: A for anything goes
Crazy4challenges 107: World Cardmaking Day - anything goes - donate to charity (these will be among others sold at my sale on Saturday to raise money for Tearfund)
Lothian crafts 19: anything goes

In the middle of doing this, Ocado has been and I've packed away, so I must get on with more pressing matters! (but I'm going to have a coffee first - get my priorities right - lol!)
