Finally back :)

Ok - where HAVE the past 7 months gone to - I seriously cannot figure how so much time has passed since my last entry.  But as ever, it takes a WordArt Wednesday to get me kick started into action again.

I've been making Christmas cards (or at least trying to) since mid-July and now near the end of October I'm coming to an end temporarily for this season as it takes me weeks to 'finalise' each of them ready for collection by those who've asked for some.  I rarely get paid for these ones much as most go to family but I do thankfully have 1 or 2 friends willing to buy £20 worth which is great, but given I can only charge about 50p max per card means I don't get much profit.  Regardless, I continue to make for my pain relief & distraction therapy rather than profit anyway.

So onto my offering for the Challenge this week & possibly my last of the year unless I get a half hour to put something up before the end of it.

The card I've made is one of my favourites for this season - a Joy diecut on red mirri paper which has a border cut with Spellbinders A2 curved borders.  I then did the same on the card front while cutting the back straight to ensure it sits up properly. 
Just finished off with peeloffs so is a nice quick & simple card - and very effective I think. I've done some more in different colours which all look wonderfully striking and have gone down well.
