Happy Christmas!


Hi everyone, well the day is here! Happy Christmas. I hope Santa has paid you a visit. He has dropped by here but the children and grandchildren will be coming tomorrow so we usually open gifts then. Today, we are off to my mums to take her out to lunch and will get back later on to just sit and relax! Tomorrow is my big day - I am cooking a lamb biryani for lunch. My kids love that!

Here is the card I made for my husband. I love the picture of the little polar bear cub.





The room was a little dark for the camera. It's actually bright white glitter card - very frosty and lovely!

Have the greatest day everyone.

Time to do the Christmas shop!

It's stupid o'clock but I am going out to get to Sainsburys when the doors open at 6.00. I know some people love the hustle and bustle but I'm not one of them! I love to stroll around a near empty shop with the shelves stacked with goodies and not have to stand in a half hour queue to part with my pennies so off I go! I just wanted to wish all my crafty friends a very very Happy Christmas. Thank you for sharing your most wonderful creations, I have gained such knowledge by reading your blogs and find them so inspirational. Here are a few cards I made recently, I want to post the cute card I made for my other half but its too dark to,take a photo - ill do it later! Anyway, here are a couple of others......

This one is for my granddaughter.....




This is for my grandson.....






This for my musical son and his partner.......







And finally, this one is for my daughter and son in law.....





Merry Christmas all and a very big welcome to any of you who pop by for the first time with a new iPad or suchlike from Santa!!

Finished at last!

I have finally made the very last Christmas card for 2012 - what a relief although I must say, I have enjoyed making my cards more this year than at any time before. This is mainly down to the fact that I joined a craft class earlier this year and I love learning new techniques and getting inspiration. It's great fun and has breathed new life into my craft.

The card I am showing today is the one I made for my elderly mum. I know she will love it - she does always appreciate my cards. She's had a bit of a difficult couple of years and none of us has realised how hard it's been for her. Anyway, I'll be taking it across to her next week. It's a mixture of Spellbinders and Memory Box dies, pink pearl card and white glitter card. Hope you like it too!





Post another one tomorrow :) Time for my bed!!
