Sunday Night Crafting! :)

Hello All - Hope you have had a nice weekend! Ours as usual was busy but we did have some down time and got a lot more accomplished around the house which is nice. We are slowly getting settled in and feeling more relaxed in our fabulous new space! 

I have been able to slowly pick away at setting up my craft space when the kids are in bed. Tonight I spent the evening crafting with a lovely friend of mine.

I thought it would be a good chance to get my first batch of 3 cards designed for my Holiday Card Club which starts later this month. I thought why not play along with a few sketch challenges while I was at it...
