Not long now ....

Not long now until the big day,.....Christmas might be the same date every year, but I am so behind with my Christmas card orders....
Today I have an order for 24 assorted Christmas cards to finish, wish me luck.....
I then have to make a start on my own, a good friend of mine, Jane has offered to help. I may be calling on her and the elves, if time keeps rushing past so fast. 
Here are some of the ones that I have made a start with,
They all use stamps from Hobby Art and can be found here

I have used my ProMarkers to add colour.

Glossy Accents and gems add the detail.

It is a bit wet and dull outside today, so I think I will go and make a big mug of coffee, get a packet of chocolate biscuits out of the cupboard and retreat to my craft table....I may be gone for a while!
Have a good day all and see you soon,

  1. These are fabulous Jo, love the mistletoe wreath, very stylish.
    I've made one Christmas card - whoo hoo!! So you're not on your own. I shall be busy in the old craft room today, no chocolate biccies though :( It's going to be a long day! xx

  2. Your designs are always lovely Jo and I am inspired by your work :-)
    Good Luck with all your Christmas orders

  6. Like them all but the wreath is my fave x I think that is really

  7. I hope you had a productive day Jo. Your cards are beautiful. The robin one is my fave. Those robins are so cute! x

  8. I've just popped over to your blog from Hobby Art, because I fell in love with the penguin card that Jenny has displayed there. I have found the penguin word stamp in the HA shop, but I wonder if you could share with me where the embossing folder came from, also the little penguin stamp in the bottom corner. I thought the card was fantastic, a lovely use of colour, design and texture. I hope you don't mind if I try and copy it for next year. I'll give you a mention as the designer on the back of my card of course, and it will only be for me to give, not to sell. Thanks Jo, I'm off to look back over the rest of your blog now and join your band of followers. Best wishes for a very happy Christmas, and a good new year too.
