Not quite as planned

Yesterday most certainly didn't go as planned. I woke up in the morning to find out that the flight that my daughter Jenny was flying in on from Detroit had been cancelled. It took a couple of hours to work out what exactly had happened. In the end, she arrived 10.00 pm last night, a mere 11 hours after she was originally due. I had to go collect her from the airport because I was the only one around that could,  my husband George having left for the USA yesterday morning. This meant that I had to cancel my last class of the year.

I was hoping to share today that we were due to make last night. Instead, I thought I'd share another of my Christmas cards. To be perfectly honest I am getting a little tired of making Christmas cards but needs must. I've made 20 of these, so that means I have another 50 still to go, gulp. The next 20 will be of a different design etc.

This is what my pile of 20 looks like.

You can just about see the Dazzling Diamonds on the cards

I've been using my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set again

This is the inside
Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp sets : Gorgeous Grunge, Greetings of the Season, Petite Pairs and Happy Hour
Card Stock : Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Whisper White
Ink : Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive (ink pads and markers)
Accessories : Dazzling Diamonds, 7/8" Scallop and 1" Circle Punches, and Dimensionals

I wanted to keep these cards fairly simple because I have so many to make and I also wanted to keep them fairly "flat" to keep postage down - there is only one dimentional so the card should be as a standard rate 1st or 2nd class letter. 

My kitchen table currently looks like the glitter fairly has been, but oh well. It's face it, it's not Christmas without a little glitter.
