dreaming of......

well i did say no more easter cards..... so now i have started back on my christmas cards!!!
used the fab sketch over on xmas and birthday cards only, and have also followed the theme over on a spoon full of sugar which is to use dies/punches on your card. (links on my side bar)
have used englishpaper company xmas papers, elzybells image and wording (must find out the name of the stamp!!), stamin`up scalloped edged punch, quickutz stars and lace edge dies, finished with a little sparkle!!

here is my elzybells image closer.

have the worst headache from the boys arguing all day... roll on monday, my father has just phoned could i make a card for him to give to mum for her birthday!!! about short notice... better get my skates on then... men (even dads , wonder if he has got her present yet??? maybe he has cause normally he phones for me to go with him to get it!!)
