In The Christmas Spirit!

I've been in the Christmas spirit recently and made loads of cards. I've finished my general ones but still have to make those special, close relative ones, which I find a bit harder - especially the menfolk.

I'm now off for a short break to Somerset for half term - leaving No 1 son in charge of the cats and goldfish.

I will be keeping an eye out for any craft shops on my travels!

Hanglar Christmas Card

The cold snap and central heating puts me in the mood for making Christmas cards!
This Hanglar stamp is coloured with my trusty promarker pens and the card is embellished with tattered roses in 2 corners

It's a traditional Christmas!

So far most of the Christmas cards I have made this year have had a modern colour scheme such as pale blue and lilac or pink and lime green. They are also a bit cute and sparkly. But I need to make some more traditional cards for the older members of my family. I thought these Kanban robins were ideal!

Congratulations to the blog winner

Using the very low tech method of bits of paper with everyones number written on it, I drew no 16 out of the hat - so congratulations to Rosalee M from Canada!

Please let me know your address so I can get your goodies off to you!

Like most people I am now in the middle of making loads of Christmas cards - I am giving most of them to a local cancer charity to help with their fund raising. So far I have made 65 for them.
