Christmas cards


So, I left it to the last posting day before Christmas {today} to make my Christmas cards. I should be tidying my flat for tomorrow's Christmas Crafternoon instead. These took no time at all to make; I just used a glue pen + glitter, and my new favourite toy - Dormy's DIY stamp kit {a tip off from Ellie at Home Shopping Spy.} I wanted to use softer paper with rough edges, but when you leave things to the last minute, you have to let some things go.

Today is also the day I took myself on a mission to try Starbuck's gingerbread latte {thumbs up} - easily distracted, me?

the cards are lovely. it's nice to see simple elegance at this time of year...i'm sure the recipients will be very happy!

gingerbread lattes are my favourite! and kind of all the more tempting when they only appear for a few weeks.

These are really pretty - will try to remember them when I am lacking in inspiration for next year's cards! I just went with straight photo cards this year. They looked okay, but were a bit boring! These are much more fun.

I like the costa gingerbread latte myself!

I love that moveable type stamp - I had a similar one as a kid that kept me amused for ages.
