Patience is a virtue

There is a new challenge today at Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and the theme to play along with this week is Celebrate the Holidays.    Nice and easy, huh?

I've been spending the weekend making more Christmas cards.  Today's card is going with hubby who is off to see his family in Sheffield, and taking all the cards and presents with him.  I had to wrap all the family gifts up on Saturday ready for him to take.  Wow, that sounds like I'm organised, but literally the in-law stuff is all I've done.  I've not sent any of my other cards or got any of the other gifts.  I'm soooo not ready for the holidays this year.

Today's card was made over the weekend, and was waiting for the stickles to dry.  But while it was drying, hubby had nabbled it for his parents, and so before I'd even gotten to photograph it, he'd written inside it.  So, I've photographed the inside so you can see that I've decorated it, but you'll also see hubby's writing in it.

Card Recipe:
Please pop on over to the Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

Don't forget to pop over to the Stamp Fairy shop too, where you can browse the cute images created by the wonderful Gerda.  Don't forget the sale is still on.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.

LOL, I had to chuckle when I read this! :) I usually end up photographing my projects with wet stickles tbh, cos I cant wait either.

I was once told,

Patience is a virtue, virtue is a grace,
Grace was a girl who never washed her face! :D One of my middle names that! (grace, not patience! lol ;)
