What housework?!?

Well, following a cr*p night when Jess didn't go to sleep until late today got considerably better! She slept for 3 hours through lunchtime so instead of hitting the housework - I made cards! Had a go at Di Hickman's July #2 card sketch and came up with these 2 cards: For the first one I used the free Junkitz papers that came with the Scrapbook Magazine a while ago along with 2 different pieces of paper from the new Papermania inspiration packs. The ribbon (I think) is May Arts and the rub-on stitched flower was from a pack from the Pound Shop. Another one of the gorgeous Studio G stamps was used and then of course I had to get the sewing machine out! I liked this sketch so much I decided to make another card and of course it had to be another Christmas one! Used some of the older Doodlebug Christmas papers, Doodlebug ric-rac, American Crafts ribbon, a Scrapworks Rubz (tag) rub-on and down in the corner is a little MOD rub-on. The greeting was stamped using the "must have words" stamp set from Lakeland.

Off to finish a LO I started earlier now!
