I've been having a great time with my girls this week and managed to find some time to make a few cards.
The Christmas cards turned out better than I hoped using the 'faux tearing' technique. The were super quick to make as well using co-ordinating inks and ribbons and whisper white cardstock.
The second card uses both a colour and sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers. Using Old Olive, Pretty In Pink and Ruby Red. I also used Black grosgrain ribbon, flower and pearls from Pretties Kit and Dimensionals. The stamps used are: Floral and En Francais backgrounds and Always from the Spring Mini

And I'm starting to get a bit panicked. So far I've not put too much thought into gifts and things but since it's less than seven weeks away, I think I need to get moving!!
At least I've had fun playing with Christmas card designs. These last two were a lot of fun to make. The first uses: Always artichoke, River rock cardstock and inks,Holiday Harmony DSP, Styled silver hodgepodge and Rhinestone brads from the pretties kit. Along with some very vanilla wide ribbon. I've also used the stamps set 'Circle of Friendship' and 'Season of joy'.
The second was a sketch challenge from somewhere ( I can't remember but have seen lots of cards with the same layout). Using Old Olive, very vanilla and real red cardstock, Dashing DSP, Thin vanilla ribbon and the same stamp sets as above.

The barrage of family has finally passed and we have spent our first nights alone with our girls. So far, Baby Savannah only wakes once during the night to feed so I am still feeling quite human. And finally I spent a little time making a couple of quick cards last night.
This first card was made using Sage shadow cardstock and ink, very vanilla cardstock and ribbon and DSP from the Fall flowers pack. I LOVE the new styled silver hodgepodge and used one of the circles and the brads here.
This card uses Wild Wasabi and Soft sky Cardstock and Double stitched ribbons, Spring Fling DSP, Flowers and half back pearl from the pretties kit and the rub-ons from the Cherished memories pack. No stamping at all!!
And a new piccy of Savannah aged five weeks!
