I go back to school on Monday morning, a new year, new classroom, new age group, new responsibilities. I'm sure it will be just fine but I've got that 'back to school feeling' in my tummy. I've had a really great holiday, two weeks in Italy, adventures to Harrogate and Beamish as well as such a lot of lovely crafting. When I look back at what I've achieved in the last 4 weeks I am amazed at my 'industriousness', it will slow down though when I get back into school/teacher mode.
Today started off well when the postman delivered my latest Magnolia Stamps order. Some of my scrapping pals and I decided to do a big group order and share the postage so 29 stamps fell through my letterbox this morning.I had a little play with them this afternoon and then tonight suddenly realised that I had very little white card - the basis of all my cards - so I had a quick dash down to the Metro centre (thank goodness for late night shopping) to the Papermill shop. Whilst I was there I found these cute little stamp sets, just like my Birthday set but for Christmas and at £1.49 each I couldn't pass them up.
Anyway, two cards to share with you. The first is a jolly Christmas Pudding card that I made yesterday, I think my holly leaves need working on.
Please forgive the very poor photograph of this card but it is after 1:00 am and I couldn't use my usual garden table as it is very very dark outside! This is one of the new Magnolia stamps that arrived this morning (I was very good and posted everyones orders and only kept mine, even though I wanted them all for myself!). It even fits in with the DCM challenge to use 3 die cuts (if I stretch the rules ever so slightly :lol:) Sizzix bookplate, robo cut snowflake (well it is a cutting machine) and a cuttlebug embossing die folder thingy.
