Only 65 To Go...

Yes that's right, only 65 days 'till Christmas Day! Hey don't shoot me, I'm only the messenger lol. Seriously I haven't done a thing about Christmas yet so I thought it was time I made a start!
 I don't normally do batch making as I get really bored doing the same thing, but only 65 days and all that AND PaperArtsy have a new challenge which is to use a stamping platform.
 I love my Tim Holtz platform, for me it means no more spoiled projects where I've miss stamped something. This time however I was going to use it for batch stamping. I've had some backgrounds made for ages from when I was playing with my marbling inks, so I cut them all to size, and chose my stamp set.

 I chose these bold sentiments to go on my colourful backgrounds.

I even stamped the envelopes, all in exactly the same place - thank you Tim!
All stamped and stuck and waiting to be sewn into place.
I love these happy cards, and I shall definitely be making some more. The only problem is Neil has been telling me to do this for years, and I would hate for him to be right (again)!!
As I'm typing this, the sun is blasting through, and it's a beautiful day - just right for making Christmas cards!
Have a very happy weekend and thanks very much for looking x


  1. OMG 65 days!!! Now you've got me thinking that I need to get a move on. Thankfully, I have the TH stamping platform too, which is priceless at this time of year. Fantastic selection of cards Sue x

  2. That design is great for mass production! I too love my stamping platform... as I need all the help I can get! I'm working on something more creative with the platform but alas won't be able to show it at Paper Artsy (in time). xx

  3. Lovely cards, but I don't want to think about the Big C yet! Hugs, Valerie

  4. Wonderful backgrounds for your perfect stamping , Sue.
    Maybe I should use my platform a bit more :-)
    Hugs, Dorthe xx

  5. These backgrounds are stunning - a wonderful collection of x-mas cards!
    Big hugs, Susi

  6. I am so glad for the reminder Sue!! Where has this year gone! I may have to take Neil's advice too (please thank him for me.. lol). Your cards are beautiful Sue and I love that you did the envelopes too! Hugs, Anne xx

  7. Happy cards, indeed! These cards certainly do not look "batch" and I would guess that your secret is safe here! By the way, I love my TH stamping platform, too!

  8. Wow! Only 65 days … well even less now!

    I have bought some Charity Christmas Cards, so I guess it's a start!

    All the best Jan
