Another Merriest Moments Christmas card

 Good Morning Ladies, 

How are we all today? Bit of chilly wet day here yesterday, although I struggled in bed as I felt too hot ! As soon as Paul got up I flung the bedroom window open, it felt so relieving, as it was on 5.15am I managed another hour sleep 😴! 

I then got up to resume my decluttering, I really wished I hadn't started but when i saw the box's piling up in the kitchen,  it felt really good, 

A lot of the boxes were packed with off cuts (old bit boxes) but my thinking was "if I haven't used it in 3 years I'm not likely to use it going forward "!  So its off to recycling!  

I stopped when Paul came in and we had lunch I then carried on decluttering,  I looked at the clock on the cooker and saw it was past 5pm so I sat and put today's card together. 

I used Night of Navy and Very Vanilla and the Merriest Moments Stamp/die set/embossing folder collection, the folder has a die that fits in to the folder,  so it cuts and embosses all in one pass.  

I embossed the Navy background with the same folder as Monday's card but this time I used the die to cut an intricate piece for the focal point of my card,  I stamped the sentiment and added a tiny layer of Night of Navy to go on top of of the die cut. I love the classic colour combination, it looks completely different to Monday's card, where I used embossing folder on it's own. 

There are still more combinations to discover with this set!  

I hope that you all have a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx 


  1. Lovely card SANDRA It’s very elegant and you can’t beat that navy card
    Lunch with the girls was lovely We booked a table for 1.30 and were still there at 4.30 Lots to catch up on
    I hope to craft this morning and then the dreaded dentist this afternoon but at least this time I know what I want to happen and not keep putting up with their ideas and patchwork!
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    A gorgeous card again today, love the blue 😊
    Hope you’re nearing the end of your decluttering. It’s amazing how much we keep hold of thinking it’ll be used and then never sees the light of day again.
    Not doing much today, just a relaxing one before going back to work tomorrow.
    Karen, good luck at the dentist this afternoon, hope all goes well xx
    Have a good day everyone. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hi everyone.
    Beautiful cards, lovely blue colour.
    Hope you finish the de-cluttering today, it's a good feeling when you managed to rid of some bits we keeping for just in case. I used to give mine to the neighbours kids but she said no last time for I have given them so much so they have for a long time 😯😀
    Karen - all the best for this afternoon, hope it goes ok.
    Not doing much today, got some colouring in to finish and a birthday card to send.
    Have a good day everyone and take care. Hugs to you all xx

  4. Afternoon Everyone from Marigny
    I love today's card SANDRA. That blue is just stunning.

    KAREN-hope all went well this afternoon. I suspect a relaxing day tomorrow may be on the cards.

    The weather is very Autumnal here with the trees be dressed in glorious gold/greens though of course the downside is that all the paths are covered in fallen leaves but it is just wonderful to be here.
    We had our first power cut this morning (being where we are it doesn't take much to cause one all the lines here are overland from post to post to post). The power went off around 08.30 our time and didn't come back on until just after midday.
    Tomorrow is a working day in filling all the bird feeders and I need to take a look in the annexe just to make sure all is OK.

    HUGS to you all with loads and loads of extras for all Dear Friends not feeling too good at the moment.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx
