Update on challenge

Well have managed to make another 40 Christmas cards...



So have 90 finished, with all their inserts and envelopes...



There was a little bit of cheating, as the kit's decoupage was done back in April, when I was in the mood for doing it. I really enjoyed doing them all, I don't know if it's because I was not under pressure (as it's not December, which is when I'm usually doing them) or what.

Saying that, I'm a little fed up with Christmas looking things now, so will leave the personal cards (hubbies, Steven's, Sam and Matt's and mums) till when I'm back in the festive mood, lol...

I've now started a baby date hanger for Finley, it's a shame as I found a lovely one I could have based mine on, on Pinterest, but had already started the one I'm doing.

Also am thinking of doing a couple of door plaques for Alfie, Charlie and Finley, will let you know how I get on as I've also got 9 cards needed for this month as well, but am hoping I can use some of the ones I've already made...
