Allsorts- Last Minute Christmas Projects.

Morning peeps!!!
Phew, what a busy few days!!
Now, before I go any further with my post I have to thank the very awesome Peri whose blog I have followd for quite some time now, she posted a card using Kenny k's xmas hottie a while ago and I loved it. (peri also just got runner up in cardmaker of they year along with my fellow funky DT teamie Jane so super duper well done girls!!). I have used Peri's card as a sketch for the layout of my teeny cards ( they are just 3.5x3.5 inches!! awwwwww) and tweaked it a little, its the sentiment and lace up bit that I loved. So thankyou again Peri xxxxxx
So as always with me the christmas cards are super last minute (...I tied the last bow up only this morning!!!!!) and with being last minute they fitted in perfectly with the Allsorts challenge blog theme of Last Minute Christmas Projects.
I have made 10 of these little cuties and they were a little tough to colour becasue of how teeny they were but I still think they came out great. I coloured them using my promarkers.
Here's the blondey variety......

And here is the brunette......

They have some gorgeous glittery sparkle on their hair and bows but the light here this morning is sooooo pants!!!!!
The red linen looking paper on my Funky Hand Colour Me Happy cd was just perfect because of its sexy holey sort of effect!!!
I made the sentiment on my computer and gave everything a bit of an inking around the edges.
I punched the lace holes with my crop-o-dile big bite, which was fab as all the holes were in the right place being able to punch the whole pile at once!!!!
The little pom pom ribbon was from dunelm mill (last years sale) and I thought it would add a bit more yumminess to the card!!!!
Yesterday I mananged to catch a little virus on my computer so Scott spent most of the day rescuing it!! Luckily all is good today and nothing got lost so I am so pleased.
We helped my mum and dad with moving into their new lovely bungalow and then last night I had a fab noght watching X-factor with the girls being as our lovely christmas meal had to be cancelled due to a problem with the marquee and ice making it too dangerous to enter.
Well, I must go as I have a chicken to roast before I go out to the cinema with the boys! We are going to watch Narnia for mo's birthday treat with Ryan as Ryan won't be here for mo's birthday on thursday.
Thankyou so much for popping in on me!!
Huge hugs
