Batch Christmas Cards

These where the cards I batch made for Christmas 
but never got round to blogging.
There are a cutting file from Lori Whitlocks shop
I cut all the bits out leaving very little waste
I found a paper cutter called a Zutter Dreamkuts in a charity shop and its brilliant for cutting card in half quickly and accurately.
It's my new favourite tool lol
I then printed the verse onto each card before folding and sticking then all together whilst my daughter was in labour lol

Reason for not Blogging ~ I became a Naughty Nanny

I am sorry for my lack of posts.
Skip to bottom of post if you want to see my make.
My daughter and son in law had this little bundle of mischief
on 11 Dec 2019, let me introduce my grandson Alfred.
His birth ended up as a C section, but both him and my daughter are fine, he was a very healthy 9lbs 3ozs. I was with them all through it and saw him as soon as he was moved to the recovery room, truly a magical moment.
As we have funny blood in the family they didn't want to take any risks with DD so I was travelling down to their house every evening after work to give a double dose of blood thinning injections. Anyone who has had these will know they are quite painful injections to have. 
Alfie also had a 100% love heart tongue tie, he gained weight well with my DD feeding him but was choking and getting quite frustrated. So he was assessed then 5 days later had his tongue tie corrected, his still learning to move his tongue properly but is doing really well.  So now his fixed, DD injections are over and she can drive again I can get back to crafts as well as lots of nanny cuddles.
As they didn't find out the sex of the baby until he was born, I made his quilt in between running around.

The materials are from our local garden centre that still has a crafts section, they are all soft and fleecy, the back is minky fabric and its edged in satin ribbon.

With some squares left I made a taggy blanket using some of the ribbons from his many lovely gifts, some bits left over from quilt and the rest from my ribbon box.

This is for the following challenges 

Not bad for my second quilt lol

Thanks for looking 

At last a post and I did warn you that I liked this image!

Wow it's been ages since I posted on my blog time flies at the moment which I will blog about later.
I have done quite a bit of crafting just not blogged it, so time to correct that.
I have used this image from Stamp on it  again
She is coloured with my Chameleon pens and
 my new Chameleon fine liners.
This is a very simple card with the images and sentiment printed directly onto the card.
I then matted it onto a piece of Kraft and pink card.
The verse is as below 

If you get up in the morning and have chest pains
Don't panic just look down to check 
you are not standing on your nipples
