It’s a great rainy day today, I have all the housework done and have the house to myself for the arvo whilst hubby is off watching some football game!!  The perfect opportunity for stampin!!  Yeah!!

I’m starting to work on my christmas cards and getting ready for upcoming workshops, so I’m playing with all the lovely new Christmas papers that are in the latest Stampin’ Up! catalogue.  I had a request from a fellow co-worker for a blue and silver card for a friend who only does Christmas in Blue and Silver!!

Here’s what I came up with.  I hope you like it!!

Whist I’ve been on holidays (woo hoo!!), I’ve been making a few of the cards that I have had left over from workshops.  I always provide one or two kits more than the hostess says may be coming just in case a guest brings a friend.

So here is a Christmas card from a workshop in July.
