Desert Island Christmas cards 3

Just a quick post before I take some things back to M&S, thought I would go now rather than wait till after Christmas when the queues are horrendous lol.

The last of the cards I made when on holiday in Lanzarote earlier this month - it seems like an age ago now.


I had already punched the borders before I left home.



I love the pink and red together on this one.




Here you can see everything I took packed into a very small space.


One more post tomorrow to show a Christmas frame that I did with my class last week.

I hope you are nearly there with preparations and it won't be too busy a day.

Beautiful cards Brenda. A great idea to take some crafty stash with you - I always get crafting withdrawal symptoms on holiday!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas, and a joyful New Year.
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Fantastic cards by any measure, but when you consider the size of your craft kit - wow!! Love the one with the torn paper and tickets, and the hot pink Father Christmas is fabulous!!
Have a wonderful Christmas... see you on the other side!
