Full Steam Ahead

Jasmine starts pre-school in September & knowing from experience how many birthday parties she will be attending I decided to make the cards in advance, starting with the boys....

Choo Choo!....

Can't believe your efficiency,'ll be getting all your christmas cards made by September!! What will you do with yourself once Jasmine's at nursery...every day to yourself??
The cards are gorgeous as always...and I know just what you mean about sometimes having too much choice.

Fabulous cards,
I to have been gradually sorting out some and giving them to my friend Leigh for her charity, and I to have felt less stressed with less to choose from, its great, and a great feeling that I am helping charity as well.
Have a great weekend,

You cards are adorable! They make me think of Disney's Dumbo movie (which we watch a lot in my house)... and the great thing is, I have this set too so could totally whip something similar up (maybe for my son's 4th birthday!). I am totally bummed you are putting up your PTI stuff on ebay as I don't live in the UK :( Oh well, guess I'll just have to order from the company!

Hi Stephanie,
These are fabulous cards. It's good to be able to plan ahead for things like this.

Ann-Marie said...

Oh wow Steph wish I was as organised as you! Fab cards love the little train image and lush ribbon. Not sure I could have been as ruthless with my craft stash but glad you're enjoying creating. Enjoy your takeaway we're having a chinese tonight if we can get the kiddies in bed that is!!!! Take care Ann-Marie xxx
