Quick cards

Good morning...
I hope the week is going well for you 

Yesterday I shared a card for my DT project at Double D Challenges using a Hero Arts stamp and Hero Arts Ombre ink... I usually make my cards well in advance and I hadn't used that stamp since making that card so I decided to pull it out again and make a bunch of Christmas cards which came together really quickly

Using the Misti I was able to stamp the sentiments one after the other and I'd already die cut a lot of those stags

The image stamp is a wooden stamp so I couldn't use the Misti for that but it's a great stamp to work with. My only problem was the Lil'Inkers border die ... I love those dies but somehow I managed to break the one I was using... I probably caught in in the Big Shot but it's ok , it only broke about an inch off it.

 I'd made a bunch of cards before Pat arrived and then of course she also made a bunch of them Lol!

My home is now ready for Christmas ... I know, I even surprised myself having it done so early in the month. Unlike most of you, I hate decorating the tree... I have a couple of small artificial trees that are no problem - they have built in lights and snowy branches and need nothing else but Hubby decided to get a real tree as well. So I stood and put on all the baubles and bows, tinsel and lights and I hated it! It just didn't look right ... I get worse as I get older I know, but it is such a pretty tree and in my opinion didn't need all the glamour, so I took everything off, bar the lights and now it looks beautiful... Just as God intended it to look and hubby loves it too.

Have a wonderful day
I'm off to catch up with an old friend who celebrates her birthday today

Till soon
