To My Husband

I think I've mentioned on more than one occasion how unromantic a couple Dean and I are, and just to cement this fact, here's the Christmas card I've made him this year...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Typed Alphabet', 'Be Merry' & 'Family Matters' / Tools - Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles'

Dean on the other hand always presents me with the most over the top, super sized (needs a fork lift to deliver it!), overly embellished, so sentimental it should come with a box of tissues, card that he can find - must be a man thing ;)

I'm in shock that it's already Christmas can my list of things to do still be so long?!!  May have to admit defeat this year and just shred it lol  I'm so pushed for time that I've cheated on my 'special cards' this year and just customised my mass produced design *hangs head in shame*...

Hope your preparations are progressing better than mine!  Only two more sleeps...

Getting There...

I've finally finished making my Christmas cards (only 80 this year), I really need to get them posted as soon as possible!...

Matching tags (small gifts for the remarkable Design Team)...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Ornamental Style' & 'Be Merry' / Tools - Clearly Besotted 'Ornamental Style Die Collection' & 'Scalloped Tag Die'

Still lots to do, I'm sure you're all in the same boat so I won't keep you any longer ;)  Have a fantastic week...only 10 more sleeps to go - eeeeek!!!

Edit: The inks I have used are Versamagic Tea Leaves, Versamagic Turquoise Gem and Memento Luxe Rose Bud - thanks for asking! :)

If you've been checking in on our Facebook Page, you will know that there is a December 'Back To Basics' release on the way very soon (this evening at 6pm GMT to be more precise!).  I haven't made a big song and dance about it because I thought the Design Team deserved a month off and also, they really are just an assortment of very basic staples that I wanted to have in my own collection.

I had a little play and here are a few samples I came up with...

I will be back later on today to show all the new products in their entirety...just in case you were interested in adding a few basics to your collection ;)
