The Christmas Dash (er)

Well I suppose these are the things that happen when you leave writing your Christmas Cards until 4 days before Christmas …..

There I was yesterday afternoon and last night writing out my Christmas cards. I’d downloaded an app for my iPad to track who I wanted to send to and who I’d recieved a card from so there I was completing names and I was depleting my stock of Christmas cards way too quickly.

I got to the last card – and that was after going through leftovers from last year as well and found I was about 20 too short! Oh my … what is a girl to do?? It was 1am and I didnt want to create a whole new card so popped a few m&m’s and then thought of the Notecards that Stampin Up! have and here is what I came up with …

Dasher Notecards

I went with a simple single layer card and just couldnt go past this Dasher design – I just love it so much.

Now can you believe I did the whole pack of 20 Notecards and envelopes in this design in just one hour?? Its true!

Now if you already had the Lovely as a Tree set which everyone should have – its one of the most have sets all you’d need is Dasher at just $14.95 and a pack of 20 Notecards with Envelopes for just $9.50 makes a very affordable set of Christmas cards.

Now if youre thinking youre going to need something to play with during the holidays why not pop an order in – dont forget the December Frenzy goes until 29th December – just click on the link in my sidebar to see all those awesome deals with some at 50% off!

As a special Christmas Treat I have a couple of ‘festive freebies’ for you ….

  • anyone who places an order of $60 or more between now and 31st December will receive free shipping and handling
  • the first person to place an order of $100 or more before 29th December will receive a bonus free A la Carte stamp set – these are the single stamps that can be found on the inside back cover (p161) of the Idea Book & Catalogue or on page 23 of the Summer Mini Catalogue .

I do hope youre all organised for Christmas or very close to it. I am done and just have to pick up some bread rolls and chickens for Christmas lunch.

    Oh Leonie…the agony of it all. You poor thing. however…..I dunno how many card you HAD done BEFORE you realised you were 20 short…but OMGoodness!!! I love this notecard…so v v clean and crisp. I have mentioned to another Demo friend that Dear Dasher is on the list…to do next year’s cards….I can’t believe I glossed over it!!! LAAT was on the list for Santa this year….fingers crossed!!! Congrats on a major successful effort. I do believe that a nice shot of latte and a Dove chockie may be a just reward….don’t you???
