On a roll and a letter with card in QCME!

Most days I am lucky if I get one card made but I am on a roll at the moment, and am making at least 2!! These 2 are cards I made yesterday and are using card blanks from a pack I bought a while ago, it's a Papermania christmas card box = 70 cards and envelopes! I paid £2.99 it should've been £14.99 I think!! There are at least half that can be used for any occassion as per my first card, the others have christmas trees, snowflakes etc on them! I thought it was worth it if only for the envelopes and the children could use the cards if I didn't.

This is one I have made using 2 of the cards the base and then I've cut one up for the stripey panel. This is my entry for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge as I have followed Dawny's fabby sketch!My 2nd card is a christmas one using 1 of the card blanks and again a bit more of the striped one I cut up. I have used the sketch from Just Christmas and Birthday's for this one.My last card is for the new Just Magnolia challenge, I have really gotten into these little cuties just recently. When I started stamping most of my stamps came from Sugar Nellie's and no where else, but after seeing and being lucky enough to have been sent some images from the spring kit I love them and am now going to treat myself to the summer kit (I was lucky enough to get my piccie of the multi legged chicken printed in the magazine of The People newspaper and received a cheque for £25!! So that will go towards my yummy new stamps!). Donalda has provided a fabulous sketch to follow for the first challenge and the prize is one I would be absolutely over the moon if I were to win ;0)
Woo..Hoo.. I'm in the Quick Cards Made Easy magazine again!!! I've been waiting for the postie to drop it through the letter box for days just for something to look through and knew it must be due as it had been ages since I got the last issue. Well to my surprise there I am and my card and letter first entry on the letters page! It's a pity I can't be lucky enough to win some of their big prizes but at least I'll get some new goodies to play with! Must remember to take it and show my Auntie she thinks it's fab that I get my work in a magazine and tells everyone about it bless her! Still being cover girl with my 2 girls a few issues back will take some beating!!!
