Making a start on Christmas












This year, I am determined to be organised for Christmas. This year, I am not juggling a new baby, working three days a week as a lawyer, as well as the usual Mum stuff. THIS is the year I will be organised! Hmmmmm, let's see how that works out, shall we?

At least I've made a start on Christmas cards. Note: a start. Not finished or anything.

Here are a few of my cards so far:

I've used Stampin'Up! cardstock, and their Season of Joy stamps for the top four cards, and Stamp-It Australia's awesome unmounted rubber stamps for the last card there. I embossed that card with gold - easy way to achieve a "Christmassy" look, I think. (Is "Christmassy" a real word? It is now!)

Oooh, and I've discovered a great site that makes free watermarks for your photos: PicMarkr (one day I'll figure out how to make a hyperlink. Yes, I am a Luddite. ) Super-easy and quick.

Hmmm, I've managed to make this page all weird. Looks like I have a few kinks to iron out!

Better go, as a small boy has woken from his nap.

Oh, and Happy World Cardmaking Day!
