Blogmas Day 17

Hi everyone and welcome to Blogmas day 17…

Apologies in advance for the late posting today, It was my work’s Christmas party last night and I am loaded with a stinking cold,no hangover tho πŸ˜‰

Today, I hauled myself up to my shed to get cracking with making my Christmas Cards for family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues ..

merry-christmas-a

I based it on a design I have already made but turned it into a 6×6 card, there is nothing better than recieving a good quality handmade card

So the card base measures 6″ x 6″ and the white inner layer is 4″ x 4″ then the dark grey layer is 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and the patterned paper is 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″

I have a ton of stuff still to do and I am hoping to get it all done tomorrow, because I have not started my Christmas shopping yet and time is ticking on πŸ˜€

See you tomorrow!
