2 'Scandi' style Christmas cards


Happy Anniversary 
❤Sonia & Mark ❤

Good Morning Ladies, 

How are you all feeling today?  Janet if you are anything like me you will be feeling the exhaustion of tge journey all week, Paul likes to get the car done straight away,  I left that to him, he did leave the roof box a couple of days though, trouble is if you need the car to go shopping etc you have to empty it first.! 

Sonia, Happy Anniversary, I am so pleased that you got unpacked and into that hot tub on day one, it must be so relaxing for you both,  Mark must be super exhausted promoting the new album as well as working, enjoy every moment my lovely 😍 

Today's card is made with the same stamp set as yesterday's card, they are a free stamp set with the latest edition of Creative Stamping magazine,  I will share it with you on Saturday.   This is one of the cards featured.  It's called 'Scandi ' or Scandinavian style, which is basically red & white cards with simple stamped backgrounds.  

I stamped one card on Cream and one on white, I matted the cream onto gold and white onto silver, imstead of a sentiment I used the mittens as the focul point.  I added the sentiment to the top.  It's hard to tell the difference in the photo though.  I think I prefer more traditional style Christmas cards if I'm honest but these are ok. 

Paul is doing long days in the office this week, my days feel endless,  fingers crossed we'll be back to normal next week, I miss my craft room/office companion. 

I hope that you all have a good Wednesday, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra xxx

    Janet just take it easy for a few days, coming home is always tiring.

    Sorry I didn’t get in yesterday, been feeling rough for a couple of days, back ache is so tiring, feeling wiped out.
