My Inspiration - Christmas Cards for the Aussie Troops

Morning everyone, these cards are all my Mum's creations.  Yes, she has been my inspiration for crafting for a very very long time. :-)

Mum decided to create and collect a few of her left over cards to send off to the Aussie Troops serving overseas so they can send them home at Xmas.  Go here for more details.

The thing I admire most about Mum's creations is the fact she recycles so much.  All of her cards are created using items that you receive free with crafting magazines, or shapes punched from magazines.  Mum always puts a little picture on the back of her cards too....I never think to do this.  Oh, and the insides all have a little computer printed verse.  The rear of the cards are either stickers or pictures cut from magazines or catalogues.

Have a wonderful plan is to do a bit if creating today.  I have been so busy booking a holiday in this last week I haven't been near the craft desk at all. :-0  Withdrawals big time.
