Post office queues are good...

Bet you never thought you would read that, but whilst in the queue today I was looking about and their christmas cards. Now I havent got to make loads but enough to make me start to panic about when I will get the time to make them.. so in the queue I saw the ideal solution and a flippin clever one to get you out of a fix! Not entirely cheating... not entirely store brought, not entirely stamped... perfect! even better as I had some of the Magnolia images (sir stampalot) stamped out, coloured and cut for a project that I never used them.


Images are Magnolia, Whiff of joy and Penny Black

I do wish the cards were all the same as the top lot, I do prefer this one.










Photos are bad as the flash doesnt like the glossy cards. but they are cute eh? Not only saving me time but money too... 16 cards £2.49, I couldnt have made them for less and also I am really short on white cardstock so its saved me valuable resources.

End of school is near and I have made a cute book for Harveys teacher... here it is, also a small box of after dinner mints.






Cant shake off my cough, have had a cold for 2-3 weeks and it has left me with an annoyingly dry throat and at night it makes me cough and gasp, its like a tightening feeling in my throat, not fun. Poor Harvey seems to have it too and he is always coughing. Caiden is all chesty and rattly, a house of germs!

Wow Caz, what a fabulous idea, i wish i had have thought about that, before venturing on my mamouth task or card making! they all look stunning too, if you don't mind me asking which supermarket did the cards come from? I might very well try this next year, it will save that extra stress at christmas! lovely book for the teacher too. Hugs Linda x
