Christmas - well, at least I have started!

hi all

well, fresh from a lovely day at a crafting class yesterday, I can now honestly say I have at least started on my Christmas makes!

and with further inspiration from the lovely Jessica over at InkiitupwithJessica with her Holiday edition of her One Sheet Wonder class,  I feel I am at least further forward than I was last week.!

... and with the current challenge over at Less is More - for non traditional Christmas, and not to use red or green - well I just had to have a go! So went  with shades of blues instead! Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Marina Mist to be precise!

and Addicted to Stamps and More  current CAS challenge - here we can create anything just as long as it's clean and simple!  Just Hope this fits the bill then!

good greetings

The sentiment is from the recent promotional set Good Greetings and for once,  although not quite a 'card in a few minutes' it came together far more quickly than my usual endeavours with stamps and inks! Wheee!

I know this is literally only the beginning of November, but with the class just this last weekend,  day 1 of a 2 day sewing class next Saturday, the NEC for their Christmas show on Sunday,  the following Saturday finds me at a course in Nottingham to make an embroidered organza waterfall panel  - am not sure I haven't bitten of more than I can chew here.!

Then of course not forgetting the Stampin' Up! UK tours about to kick off this month - and have not given a thought to swaps as yet!

At this rate - I really shall be looking forward to December and a rest.,  notwithstanding all my, as yet unfinished Christmas makes,  of course!

Until next time - do have a lovely week.
