Festive Friday

Hi All!
The one time I manage to get my cards made on time - blogger decides to have a spack attack. Thanks Mr Blogger!

Anyway, I made two very simple cards yesterday using some vintage card pictures from a Scrapbook magazine that I found at a local book fair a couple of weeks ago.

I had to really laugh, I was carefully cutting my images out from the book, only to look down and see Will watching me intently! How can I now tell him that he should never cut anything out of a book!
Anyway onto my two cards!

Both images were cut out and mounted on cardstock before being magic mounted on to the base card. Buttons and a bit of twine were also added. Very simple - but that is exactly what I was looking for!

So that now brings me to a whopping total of 34 Christmas Cards towards Shirley-Anne's 50 Christmas Cards by Dec 1 Challenge over on her blog - Stamping for Joy . I am just over 1/4 of the way to my goal of 120 in the same time frame.  Achievable at this stage too!
It's not to late to join up you know - perfect crafting weather is on its way!
