Guilt Free Crafting!

Hooray!! A day of crafting without feeling like I should be doing something else.  I finished all my homework, no work today, the house is clean and the kids are at school, even Matt is busy with other stuff. So today I have got not one but two cards using the layout from this week's challenge at Just Add Ink. The first uses one of the new hostess sets and the hostess dsp.

The second is a Christmas card which is looking good to be the design I will use for all my cards this year. I will just alternate the colours and use different sheets of dsp.

Card: Pink pirouette, melon mambo, concord crush and whisper white
Ink: melon mambo, concord crush, lucky limeade
