A very good and fruitful week

Hope everyones Christmas plans are coming together nicely. I finally got around to sorting most of the presents this week after a trip into Birmingham with my daughter.We had a lovely day out even though both of us were feeling a bit under the weather. I still have a number of Christmas cards to get done but I'm hoping to get them finished this weekend.
I have had a pretty good week all in all actually. Last Saturday went to the Free Radio Live gig at the LG arena and saw Ollie Murs, Ed Sheeran and many more. Then the trip to Birmingham and a night out with my best friends last night. To round it off I am going to a Christmas concert this evening to see my daughter in law playing violin in the orchestra.
Right then enough of my hectic social life lol!
Here are a couple of cards I made last month and a canvas I decorated just for fun
This first card I made for our nephew using Clarity Hot air balloon stamp and clouds stencil
 This second one I made for my B.I.L.'s 80th birthday
 The clock and buttons were cut using spellbinders die and everything else came from my stash.
 I painted the stencil with acrylic paint, over stamped with texture stamps and edged it with some brass embossing powder
The large flower was created using a rubber stamp and the smaller ones are from the Craftwork Cards Vogue collection.The butterfly was diecut using a spellbinders die as were the flourishes and corners.

Well that's about it from me today except to say I am feeling rather relieved now this morning as I managed to book 1D tickets for Jessica. I hate booking tickets as it is so stressful!!
Have a good weekend
