~ Woot! ~

A couple of weeks back, I was invited to join the Christmas Card All Year 'Round (CCAYR) design team. Naturally said yes as I've been following the blog early this year and been joining in their challenges. It's a blog which does Christmas cards (never too early to do them!) challenges each month. Now that I'm on the team, I've got even more incentive to make more Christmas cards. Every year, I give them out so much at the end of the year that I'm always getting commercial ones to supplement what I've made. So this year, my aim is to make enough so as not to rely on commercial ones. I've given myself a quota of 8 Xmas cards to make each month. Unfortunately, I've slackened in June so I've got to catch up! 

Here's a few that I've made in July so far: 

This particular card will be given out to relatives as it's a picture of my boys (which I had commissioned). 

This card was done for 365 Cards (which I'm on the DT as well). 

I'm looking forward to doing more cards later once the school term has ended. Currently, I'm swarmed with teachers' gifts and organising my eldest's birthday party for this Sat, not to mention having to pack for my holidays as I fly off next Wed! Why do everything seem to come together at the same time!!! TTFN!

Congratulations Audrey! So so sorry I've not been able to write to you for so long, and thank you so much for always writing to me! I've been busy and extremely tired these days so haven't been able to pop by to say hi to you here - love your work as always. :)) Happy to hear that the brits do give way to ambulances, yah, very embarrasing that we always have to resort to fines here. Take care!
