Flaky Friends...

Hi all,

Well what a lovely day it has been. Went to a Macmillan event and the sun just shone all day. I finally completed my Flaky Friends Accordian Card Organiser Box and made five Christmas cards to go inside to bring with me as a raffle prize. You never guess who ended up taking home my box..... My Mum! lol. She liked the box and cards so much and knew how much work went into it, that she couldn't bare seeing it go to someone else, so she chose my gift amongst the other prizes. I don't know, what is she like!

Anyway, here are all the cards I made to go inside the box:

These were all made with Stampin' Up! goodies - cardstock, stamp set, inkpad, Stampin' Write pens, ribbons, embossing powder and punches. Non-SU goodies used were the May Arts red and white dotted ribbon and the green twine.

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend.

Bye for now,



  1. Alex, these are adorable.............I know need this stamp set!!!!!!!



  2. What a beautifully made and coloured set of Christmas cards Alex. Your Mum was right I know how hard you must have worked - they look gorgeous.

    Have a great weekend,
