Well I have finally got the chance to make a card tonight. I have had a very stressful two weeks. Have been helping hubby with orders in the shop, doing my dads accounts and doing the vat quarter for my hubby's accounts. There has also been a lot of hassle with BT for the new shop but we got it finally opened on Monday, phone line in yesterday but have to wait for 5 days for broadband even though the order was placed on 4th February and were told it would take 10 days. Who would have thought that a flood caused by a shop next door over Christmas would cause this much hassle and put us out of business for over two months and have to relocate premises. Just glad things are getting back to some sort of normality.
I am entering this card into three challenges:-
Papertake Weekly # 53- Follow Sketch
Winter Wonderland - Include an animal (also must be a Christmas card)
Craft Us Crazy # 2 - Brrr It's Cold Outside
I know it seems odd to make a Christmas card now but you are never to early to start, so I made two.
Sorry for the poor quality. As I was taking the photograph the table collapsed and one of the legs fell off. It has been a bit loose and had asked hubby to re-glue it but he has just been so busy. It is glued now and hopefully will be set for tomorrow or there will be no Sunday dinner.
Both of the insides are different as I ran out of paper. I only had one sheet of each .
