Hoppy Birthday!

Well nearly another month goes by, pretty scary how close December is now! I'm still plodding on with my christmas cards but I don't think I am going to manage to achieve the whole amount... I have loads of family and special ones to make yet and really struggling to get inspired.
Here's a card I made for a Paul's step mum who is a frog fan, I used the Stampin Up stamp set Unfrogettable and the word window punch so that the little frog can be moved across the card. The flowers are cut in felt using a flower die in one of the Cuttlebug alphabet sets.
I made some fantastic gifts at Michelle's Christmas craft workshops but I can't show you these until after the weekend as some of the ladies in our Stampers 10 will be making them tomorrow!
Off tomorrow for a crafting weekend with the girls, really hoping that we might be able to actually make a few cards this time as last time we got together for a weekend we achieved a lot of talking and drooling over the Stampin Up cattys and not much else LOL!

Get Well Soon Nan

Wow November already... scary hey?! Where has the time gone?! 48 days until christmas... not long and actually quite scary how quickly it's come around and I so wanted to be organised with my chrimbo cards this year!! How many have you made?! Me I have now made 34 which is pretty good going considering I've not had an awful amount of time but I have over 100 more to make ... gulp!
Sorry I haven't been around much, just don't seem to have enough hours in the day to get everything done and I have been feeling quite stressed recently!
This card is for Paul's nan who had a stoke last week, it's her second stroke in about 5 years, she's still in hospital and her speach is quite slurred at the moment and she's been asking for her husband who passed away 4 years ago :(
I needed to make something quick and simple to let her know we are thinking of her as she's quite a way from us and we can't get down to see her.
Yes more owls... I seem to be addicted to owls at the moment, this little fella is a Hero Arts stamp and the branch is a Hero Arts set too. The scalloped oval is a nestability set and the little flowers are cut from felt using one of the cuttlebug alphabet sets, Olivia I think. Yummy bo bunny spotty paper... love this colour, I have to admit I found it very hard to cut into this!!
