Going to try and be organised

Good Morning,

Well this is the first morning in weeks where it hasn't been raining, the sun still isn't shining but it is still an improvement.  Just hope I haven't jinxed it!

Since we are over half way through the year and all my wedding preparations are over and done with I am decided I am going to try and be organised and make an early start on some Christmas cards.

Supplies Used
Ippity - Season of Joy Stamp - Sentiment and Holly
Wow Embossing powder
Ribbon and sparkles from my stash

Challenges Entered
Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog - Sentiment as the focal point
Pixies Crafty Workshop - Snippet Challenge

My task for this lunch time is to get my bank accounts changed to my new married name, I haven't changed anything yet so better make a start or I will probably never get round to it.

Thanks for visiting

  2. Hi Gilly, this is fabulous! I spotted the challenge and this is perfect for it, super use of snippets too.

    We have a wedding card for you from the playmates here:

    The original is still here, unwritten though as I realised too late I don't have your address. Duh! If you'd like it I'll pop it into the post but don't feel obliged.

  3. This card is a lovely start at those Christmas cards. And this is a design you can replicate easily. It's a beautiful card. Congratulations on your upcoming marriage too. I'd like to give you an organizational tip I just found this week - it was brillant.

    If you use the 6x6 paper pads, purchase 6x6 white envelopes ( and tape one on the backside of each paper pad. When you cut your designer paper put the scraps inside the envelope. Place all the 6x6 paper pads upright in a long basket on the shelf. I couldn't believe how much better that was (organizationally) for me.

    Thank you for your visit to my blog Gillian.
