Anne's Believe the Magic Christmas Card
Good Wednesday morning Ladies,
I am excited to share with you today another of Anne's spectacular Christmas cards, this one Anne has converted to a Christmas card from an everyday/birthday card on Sue's Particraft blog, it works so well as a Christmas card you would never think it had been anything else, I do love this crisp red and white colour combination, with just the hint of green from the Poinsettia leaves for contrast.
Anne has used Creative Expression's new 'Tessa' die from their Frames and Tags Collection and also the 'Lattice Window' from their Striplet collection, both designed by the genius that is Sue Wilson.
Anne has used some beautifully die cut Poinsettias to give this gorgeous card its finishing touch!
Anne this card is totally gorgeous and you have encouraged my creative 'mojo' to come out of hiding
and get to work, good job really as I have only made about 6 Christmas cards and I have a huge list to make, thank you so much my lovely xxxxx
Sue. Pat and I had a lovely chilled day yesterday, which was just what Pat needed as she was visibly stressed and exhausted when she arrived, bless her, its hard for Sue and I to see Pat like this as she is the most 'able' of all of us! I think that taking care of Pat and Pete's elderly friends is really taking its toll, Pat my dear, sweet friend, you really do need to slow down, you are taking on way too much and I really don't want to see you become unwell, you have more than enough to do with caring for Pete, without taking on so much else, I hope you have a lovely time away in Essex xxx
Hazel you are doing almost as much, please try and slow down a little too xxx
We are having Christmas shopping phase 2 today, lets hope it was a little more successful than phase 1,
this time we are venturing in to Swindon, which should be fun, hopefully not too busy though!
My Mum always likes to give us a really challenge with her gift choice, things like a 'plaid Kilt' type skirt with no pleats! for instance! This year she has said she just wants a jumper, so I asked what type, polo neck, round neck,colour, etc?? this from a lady who has no possible space in her wardrobe as it is so full of jumpers! She just said 'something that you think would suit me', I think I will just buy her a M &S voucher, some chocolates and some face cream, nicely displayed in a lovely 'Hazel' Basket !
Tomorrow will be Tutorial day, something for them Men in your life this time!
Margaret C, Norah, Cheryl, Sheila, I hope that you are all well, we are missing you xxx
Maureen, it was so lovely to see you in yesterday xxx
Sorry if I have left anyone out, I am not sure if I am coming or going today,
Love and Hugs
