A few cards

Hello.........I have really enjoyed having some time today to create a few Christmas cards. The plan is to be more organised this year.......hmmm , who knows how that will go, but at least I've made a start :)
I liked the simplicity of this sketch from "Atlantic Hearts" challenge.

Each card has a pretty Polaroid image and a Rub on sentiment. Love the extra sparkle the snow flake sequins add....they are from Paper Sweeties.
I tried to keep the cards simple but....as you can see, I just kept adding bits and pieces :)

I followed this sketch from last weeks  Atlantic Hearts, challenge......to make a Birthday card for my mother.....I got busy and forgot to link up!

Hope she likes it! 

Now its time to see what you have been creating 
Happy Weekend to You

  4. Sigh. Your scrapping always makes me want to change my whole house into a pretty shabby chic d├ęcor! That's the effect it has. TOTALLY in luuurve with all your cards, & I have no problem with you adding bits and bobs. I think it's your 'signature' and they always looks Just Right!!! OK. The fan club is signing out now, LOL!!! Have a lovely weekend:):)

  9. So Happy to see you start on those Holiday cards Tracey.. I know the holidays become very overwhelming sometimes, so getting these little things out of the way early will certainly help you enjoy the season more! I love the simple design and then your wonderful take on it... adding a little more here and there... I do that sometimes too... I try to make it simple... then think just add this... okay and this too... maybe this! hahaha They are all fabulous and the recipients will adore their holiday cards! As for your Mother's Birthday card... it's beautiful and another great design! :) Have a wonderful day!
