Merry Christmas Mum!
Thank you once again for stopping by, I would so love to get into double figures for comments.
I can't thank you all enough for taking time out of your busy lives to come over here and leave me a
comment, its just amazing, thank you x
This card is a card I made for my Mum, one of Sue Wilsons lovely Bauble Dies, cut out in silver mirror card, embossed and then a white die cut front, the piece that die cut out I added 'Mum' to, as I do prefer to personalise my cards. I used Creative Expressions Holly Sprig dies cut put in silver and white across the top of the card to hang the bauble from. I added a bow made from white silky crush ribbon, again from Creative Expressions, I just love all of their products. I embossed the background
with the CE Holly Swirl A4 embossing folder, matted it onto silver mirror card and then onto a white A card base.
I hope my mum will like it, I must post it tomorrow, we are going to try and get the Christmas shopping mostly done tomorrow, Paul has a Christmas shopping day, yay! I think we are going to try and finish most of it online, the shops are just ridiculously busy and being in a wheel chair makes it so much more frustrating and claustrophobic too!
I am coming to the end of my Christmas cards, but I am going to continue to blog with birthday and all occasion cards and of course the odd Christmas card too! I so hope you will stick with me, I am loving this journey so much and without all of you there would be no journey!
Brenda, you will laugh when I tell you that when I read your blog on Friday night I was quite zoomed in on the I pad and all I could see was.......'stood in the lounge naked' well you can imagine my shock, I quickly zoomed out to discover that it was your Christmas tree that was stood naked in your lounge and not you or anyone else! hahaha I laughed so much! glad you got it decorated xxx
Steph, I am sorry to hear that you will be stuck in doors, I know only too well how that feels as I only get to leave the house when Paul takes me, or lately Sue (Mrs B) or Pat (witney) mainly due to mobility but also due to struggling with going out of the house I general, you see after a very bad series of operations in 2009 I didn't leave the house for a couple of years, which has affected me in more ways than one. I do hope you get plenty of boxes made for your last market. sending you huge hugs, you have been such an amazing friend this past few weeks, thank you xx
Cheryl, you should have a go and blogging, its quite time consuming but fun xxx
Cameeli, I hope you finished your baby shower card and your packing, have a safe trip up North to see your parents, big hugs xxx
Crafty SueToo, I bet your 'sparkle fairy' house looks gorgeous, you must show us photo's of your new craft room too, lucky you xx
Tandy, look on the bright side, you did two things, that's better than none, don't be hard on yourself,
It makes me feel even more special that you took time for me, thank you so much xxxx
Lynda, we did get tree decorated, the girls helped, we also watched 'Its a Wonderful Life' for the first time and I cried like a baby! hugs xxx
Crafty hugs to all of you,
